Audi Unveils 2014 SQ5, and It's Sweet

Audi performance SUV is surprisingly quick

Audi makes some really cool sports cars and luxury vehicles, but that's not all the brand is about. Audi also makes an interesting SUV called the Q5. At the 2013, Detroit Auto Show Audi unveiled the 2014 SQ5 performance SUV.

Performance SUVs are a bit strange in some respects because you wouldn't think of a large and bulky people hauler of being a performance vehicle for the most part. However, Audi crams a supercharged 3.0-liter V6 engine under the hood of the SQ5 and the bulky SUV can move.

The engine produces 354 hp and 347 pound-feet of torque. Audi says that the engine will push the big four-door SUV to 60 mph in 5.3 seconds. That's faster than some sports cars. The supercharged V6 is mated to an eight-speed Tiptronic transmission. Pricing and availability information for the vehicle are unknown at this time.

Actually, we didn’t so much as stumble across them as we were shown them: Buried in a presentation slide covering XC90 details, and visible for less than half a minute, was a tiny chart showing what Volvo has planned next. This happy accident immediately made the classroom se ...

Car Review: 2015 Volkswagen Jetta

Aug 29 2014 1:31pm CDT | Source: Driving Canada

Middleburg, VA — One of the most understated product launches in recent memory, that showcasing the mid-cycle freshening of Volkswagen’s Jetta sedan for 2015, instantly calls to mind the aphorism generally attributed to German-American architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe: “God is in the details.” The story for the compact four-door is, notes VW Canada, one of “refinement.” Indeed, there are copious detail c ...

Bentley Mulsanne Convertible

Aug 29 2014 1:00pm CDT | Source: Top Speed

It appears Bentley’s Mulsanne Convertible Concept is back on the drawing board. This comes after the project was killed by Bentley’s then-new CEO Wolfgang Schreiber back in 2012. Originally debuted to a small number of customers at the Concours d’Elegance a few months prior, the project went cold when Bentley’s former CEO Wolfgang Duerheimer left the company.With Duerheimer gone, Schreiber told journalists “we will not do that car,” saying there was “just regional demand” and that it ...

2015 Acura TLX: First Drive

Aug 29 2014 8:57am CDT | Source: Cars.com

For years the TL sedan was Acura's bread-and-butter sedan. It was a strong seller until a radical redesign in 2009. The brand has been trying to recover ever since and hopes an all-new version with an all-new name will return the brand to luxury-sedan success. Related: 2015 Acura TLX: First Look The TLX not only replaces the TL, but also the smaller TSX sedan — which was less controversial but didn't fit properly in the brand's lineup, which also now includ ...
