    Audi history – Amazing Documentary (Video)



    Audi history – Video

    A symbol of progressive engineering – The four rings

    It’s one of the most multi-faceted stories ever told in the history of the automobile. The Audi emblem with its four rings identifies one of Germany’s oldest-established automobile manufacturers.

    It symbolizes the amalgamation in 1932 of four previously independent motor-vehicle manufacturers: Audi, DKW, Horch and Wanderer.

    These companies form the roots of what is today AUDI AG.

    The Audi A7 Sportback (Presentation video)



    The Audi A7 Sportback

    Measuring 4.97 meters (16.31 ft) in length, the five-door model is an Audi in top form. Its low, dynamically drawn roof line and flowing rear lend it the character of a coupe. Every detail of the elegant interior documents the care with which Audi builds cars. High-quality materials spoil the senses.

    The front seats are optionally available with ventilation and massage functions. The MMI operating system comes standard; among the optional equipment is a head-up display.

    Audi offers the A7 Sportback with a choice of six powerful and cultivated V6 engines: two gasoline and four TDI units. They develop between 150 kW (204 hp) and 230 kW (313 hp) and are impressively efficient.

    The new 3.0 TDI with 150 kW (204 hp) consumes an average of just 5.1 liters of fuel per 100 kilometers (44.38 US mpg). All engines feature innovative thermal management and a start-stop-system.

    Engine lineup:

    – 2.8 FSI and 2.8 FSI quattro with 150 kW (204 hp)
    – 3.0 TFSI quattro with 228 kW (310 hp)
    – 3.0 TDI and 3.0 TDI quattro with 150 kW (204 hp)
    – 3.0 TDI quattro with 180 kW (245 hp)
    – 3.0 TDI clean diesel quattro with 180 kW (245 hp)
    – 3.0 TDI quattro with 230 kW (313 hp)

    The standard automatic transmissions also play a role in the efficiency of the A7 Sportback. The user-friendly multitronic for the 2.8 FSI and 3.0 TDI with 150 kW (204 hp) delivers the engine power to the front wheels. The sporty seven-speed S tronic delivers the power to all four wheels. The 3.0 TDI quattro with 230 kW (313 hp) is equipped with an eight-speed tiptronic.

    The quattro permanent all-wheel drive system features torque vectoring for superior traction, stability and dynamics. It can be complemented with the optional sport differential for the rear axle.

    The Audi pre sense safety system can reduce the severity of accidents and their consequences in many cases. Audi active lane assist helps the driver to keep the A7 Sportback firmly on course, and the park assist system relieves the driver of the chore of steering when parking.

    The night vision assistant with highlighting of detected persons reduces the stress of driving in the dark. Audi side assist and speed limit detection round out the list.

    The All-new Audi RS Q3 in the Alps



    The All-new Audi RS Q3 in the Alps

    The car uses the Volkswagen Group A5 platform of the Volkswagen Golf Mk5, the same as the Volkswagen Tiguan/SEAT Tribu small SUVs. The Q3 slots above the proposed Audi Q2 mini crossover. Compared to the mid-luxury compact Q5 and full-size Q7 which are positioned more for family practicality and off-road performance, the Q3 is aimed as more of a lifestyle/sports automobile.

    The first-ever Audi RS SUV based on the Q3 will make its debut at the Geneva Motor Show, and will go on sale later in the year. The RS Q3 is powered by a 2.5-liter TFSI engine mated to a seven-speed S tronic twin-clutch transmission. With 310 PS and a maximum torque of 420 Nm (309.78 lb-ft), the car accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.5 seconds and onto a top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph).

    The new, 2.5-litre, five-cylinder, 310PS Audi RS Q3 is the first ever RS model in the Q series. See it thunder through some of the most challenging roads the Alps has to offer.
