Audi Crossover Concept May be the Q1

Dec 9 2013, 12:27pm CST | by

Concept will debut in Detroit next month

Audi is talking up a new concept car that will be making its official debut in 2014 at the Detroit motor show. That motor show kicks off next month. Audi has offered up some renderings of the car and it shows an attractive, small 2-door crossover SUV.

Audi isn't offering up much in the way of details on the car at this time. The renderings show e-tron badges on the side and a quattro badge on the front. Those indicate hybrid power and all wheel drive.

There is some rumors out there that say the concept might be the prototype for the Audi Q1 crossover expected in 2016 according to Telegraph. We will have to wait until next month to get any hard details on the concept.

BMW and Audi want to cut carbon fiber production costs by up to 90 percent within six years—and they’re already halfway there. The two automakers, bolstered by funding from the German government and working with 86 other partners including Airbus and ZF, are part of a $102 million research consortium whose goal it is to make still-exotic carbon fiber more viable for mainstream manufacturing. By 2020, the group, dubbed MAI Carbon, hopes Germany will be the center of carbon fiber research and de ...

Oct 22 2014 2:20pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

  The new-for-2014 Mini Cooper grew in size versus its predecessors, but some of its fuel-economy ratings are now getting the chop.

First Drive: 2016 Audi A6/S6

Oct 22 2014 10:49am CDT | Source: Driving Canada

DRESDEN, Germany — As with all of Audi’s products, the A6 has morphed from a pedestrian-looking ride to a sophisticate in short order. For 2016, it takes another step forward. The bolder lines and LED daytime running lights aside, it is the optional LED headlights that are the defining touch. In a sad move, the full-on matrix LED headlights are not coming here because Canadian law lags the rest of the world. The A6/S6 rework sees a new f ...

EPA: Four 2014 Mini Cooper models need to drop mpg numbers

Oct 22 2014 10:29am CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: MPG, BMW, MINI, Legislation and Policy After the huge problems that Hyundai/Kia experienced with its mislabeled fuel economy labels, you'd think that any time an automaker has to adjust its mpg numbers, heralds would be shouting from the rooftops. But, after Ford admitted to three big mistakes with its numbers for the 2013 C-Max Hybrid and Mercedes-Benz had to lower the fuel economy rating for the C-Class, we understand if those heralds ...

Takata Recall Update: Defective Airbags Being Disabled, “Do Not Sit Here” Stickers Affixed to Dashboards

Oct 22 2014 10:13am CDT | Source: Car and Driver

This is a disaster. The giant Takata airbag recall affecting more than 7 million U.S. passenger vehicles from a variety of auto manufacturers is proving difficult to combat. To briefly recap, there’s an issue with the airbag propellant that, in high-humidity states, can lead to shrapnel being fired into passengers when an affected airbag detonates. This has led to injuries that can present like stab wounds. This morning on NPR’s Morning Edition, Detroit News Correspondent David S ...

The Volvo XC70 is a luxury wagon that's been a part of the Swedish automaker's lineup for decades. It has just two true rivals in the market: the Subaru Outback and the Audi Allroad. That's because it's not quite a crossover vehicle--it's more a station wagon with some light cladding and all-weather ability, and a litt ...
