New hybrid Audi to be on display

Audi has announced that it will be previewing a new gasoline-electric hybrid wagon at the 2013 Geneva motor show. The car is called the A3 E-Tron and will feature 201 hp gasoline-electric power plant. Audi says that the new hybrid vehicle is a glimpse into its future automobiles.

The A3 hatchback uses a modified version of the Volkswagen EA211 1.4-liter four-cylinder direct-injection gasoline engine producing 148 hp. The car has an electric motor mounted to its six-speed dual clutch gearbox developing up to 101 horsepower. Combined the electric and gasoline engines provide 201 hp and 258 pound-foot of torque.

Audi says that the powertrain is capable of operating in three modes including engine only, electric motor only, and combined. Details on the battery pack for the vehicle are unavailable so we don't know how long it needs to charge or how long the vehicle can go on battery power alone. The car is able to hit 62 mph in 7.6 seconds and has a top speed of 138 mph.

Jaguar Promises Infotainment System that Doesn’t Suck for 2016 XE Sedan

Aug 20 2014 3:34pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

While we’re already looking forward to the upcoming compact Jaguar XE sports sedan on account of its, er, heavy use of lightweight aluminum and compact rear-wheel-driveness, we’re also enthused to hear about the installation of a decent infotainment system—which would be a first for a recent Jaguar. The new system, called InControl, will be fitted to all XE models and uses an eight-inch touch-screen interface ...

Buick shows US dealers 2016 Cascada convertible

Aug 20 2014 12:08pm CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Convertible, Europe, Buick, Opel The affordable four-seat convertible has become a largely forgotten genre in the States, especially with the death of the Chrysler 200 Convertible. Of course, there are still premium options from Audi, BMW and Mercedes-Benz - not to mention more overtly performance-oriented droptop pony cars from Chevrolet and Ford - but if you want an affordable cruiser, you're kind of out of ...

2015 Audi S3 Sedan: Faster Than It’s Big Bro

Aug 20 2014 9:31am CDT | Source: Car and Driver

So here’s a question for Audi’s marketing department: Why should anybody buy an S4 sedan? The new S3 is cheaper, quicker (4.4 seconds to 60!), and, although this won’t trigger a buying impulse in everybody, considerably cuter. Sure, it’s down a couple of cylinders compared with its bigger brother, and it has to make do with a less sophisticated four-wheel-drive system. But this is 2014 and the world is downsizing; even the BMW ...

But it sells nearly a million vehicles each year in markets like Europe and China, and though it doesn't ell as many as the larger Octavia, the Fabia is one of the Czech automaker's biggest sellers. In fact Škoda sold over 12,000 Fabia ...

Cadillac Flagship Confirmed for 2015 New York Auto Show; Don’t Call It LTS Just Yet

Aug 20 2014 7:20am CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Cadillac’s all-new, full-size sedan will bow at the 2015 New York auto show, but its name remains a mystery. Although we previously reported that the rear-wheel-drive four-door will go by the name LTS, a spokesman told Car and Driver this week, “that may not be what it’s called.” GM trademarked LTS back in 2012, and we took that as a sign that the moniker was earmarked for Cadillac’s next car, as the company rarely reserves names without using th ...
