First RS SUV offered from Audi

Audi has announced that it will be debuting its first SUV to get RS treatment in Geneva. At the Geneva Motor Shell Audi will unveil the new RS Q3 that is based on the concept that originally appeared at Auto China in 2012. The RS Q3 will use a 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine.

The engine is rated for 310 hp and promises to push the vehicle to 100 km an hour in 5.5 seconds with a top speed electronically limited to 250 km an hour. The RS version gets a high gloss black honeycomb grille, RS bumpers, a Quattro emblem, and sports suspension. The special suspension lowers the car by 25 mm.

The standard interior has piano black inlays with optional aluminum race or carbon fiber available. The vehicle is expected to go on sale in Europe this fall and no plans to launch the car in the US have been announced at this time. Pricing is unknown.

This happy accident immediately made the classroom session magnitudes more exciting. We already ...

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 changes to this model — very important to the company in that it’s the best-selli ...

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 reg ...

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.
