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.

What’s The Best Car For 2014 In The Wet?

Oct 27 2014 11:58am CDT | Source: Car Articles

  The Volkswagen Golf R has been voted the best performance car to have in the wet according to Autocarmagazine. With November signalling the start of the three wettest months on the calendar, and a general decline in road conditions, driving a higher performance car can be something of a handful for many owners. Last year, Britons bought 47,544 sports and performance cars, 3.1% up on 2012, with more than 12,191 cars with over 3.0-litre engines registered on the roads according ...

Four ways to make autonomous driving less boring in the future

Oct 27 2014 11:06am CDT | Source: Driving Canada

In the future, so it is said, our cars will drive themselves. Such a state of affairs may require a few adjustments: the name of Driving.ca, for instance, will likely have to change its name to Riding.ca, and I will have to work on my descriptions of throw-pillows and embroidered seatbelts. To be frank, it’s not something I’m looking forward to. Sure, commuting is pretty horrible, but actually get ...
