Audi Q4 e-tron 40, a fabulous electric SUV

In Audi, Car Reviews, Electric, Electric cars by Neil Lyndon

It’s that awards time of year again. When autumn comes… Even so, I apply myself seriously to the task because I know that the results make a difference to customers’ choices and, therefore, to sales.  The European Car of the Year – perhaps the motoring award with the most dubious record for impartiality and probity – can add hundreds of …

The Audi Q2 35 TSFI S Line S Tronic, enjoy the drive

In Audi, Car Reviews by Maggie Barry

Driving into and across the city in the Audi Q2 compact SUV, the sun was rising over Glasgow. The pink morning sun lit it up splendidly. Its towers and spires glittered and windows in the high buildings sparkled. Glasgow’s beautiful sandstone architecture burned in the soft early light. All was well with the world – and with this lovely car …

Reviewed | The Audi A5 Coupé 35 TFSI S tronic

In Audi, Car Reviews by Tom Scanlan

“Shhhh…he can hear what we’re saying!” whispered my two back seat passengers. I sure could…the Audi A5 Coupé was so quiet. Setting off gently for the first time, I did find the car extraordinarily quiet. After a while, I reckoned that this was an impression, having previously been in my own old and relatively noisy family hack. Nonetheless, among the …

The Audi Q2, an SUV cut above the rest

In Audi, Car Reviews by Neil Lyndon

On its way to the Hermes return point, the enormous package might have been tailor-made to fit the new Audi Q2 35 TFSI S line S Tronic. Among the revolutionary benefits of SUVs, their carrying capacities are probably the one we least consider. Still, the change they have brought into everyday life is astonishing when you think about it. As …

The Audi RS 6 Avant, an addictive estate car

In Audi, Car Reviews, Performance by Tim Barnes-Clay

Buying a car this expensive and this close to all-electric vehicles taking over the world would be madness. Or would it? I mean, maybe the latest RS 6 will become a collector’s item – a rare V8 gem left in the cold, clinical world of automotive electrification. Ok, so I’m being a tad dramatic, but you really do need to …

Audi A3 Saloon 35TFSI 150PS S line Reviewed

In Audi, Car Reviews by Tom Scanlan

You can almost take for granted that your Audi will be a handsome, well-built, well-equipped, technologically up-to-date, almost faultless vehicle. Yes, ’enjoyable’ when I consider back on 360 miles in all sorts of traffic and road conditions. However, there were occasions when, in the words of the wonderful P.G.Wodehouse’s character, Bertie Wooster, I found myself ‘if not disgruntled…far from being …

The Audi A3 Sportback, enjoy the view

In Audi, Car Reviews by Neil Lyndon

“Well, this is different.” That was my first thought on settling into the driver’s seat of the new Audi A3 Sportback S line. A pretty good start. Not this Audi A3 Sportback. Hard piano black plastics surround the split dashboard instead of the usual soft-touch squidgy stuff. Sharp chromed angles stick out where you would normally find blandly rounded edges. The shifter …

The AUDI A1 Sportback, a Class Act

In Audi, Car Reviews by Tom Scanlan

The Audi A1 Sportback, here is a car that covers all the angles – literally: inside and out, especially inside, there’s hardly a soft curve; it’s a study in angular shapes. Of course, with Audi and all so-called ‘premium’ marques, you can expect, and you get, top-quality performance, at a price…twas always thus, wasn’t it? Not that ‘lesser’ makes aren’t …

Audi TT RS coupé, a superb Gran Tourer

In Audi, Car Reviews by Tom Scanlan

If I’m honest, I probably would not opt for the increased top speed of 174 mph. I mean, £1600? Where can you check out that you actually get what you pay for? So it’s the good old ordinary 155mph max. So that reduces the price of our test Audi TT RS, still with lots of options, down to £65,020. Worth …
