Audi Q3 Brand New Model Expected to Sell More

Category: Audi | Author: | Date: December 8th, 2014

You can’t like Audi and not know about their recently born Q3 crossover or its disputed success. No need to remind the public that this car has been selling pretty well starting with a pretty big number of about 145.000 units sold already and about 1/3 of that number expected to sell this year.

Judging by the numbers you wouldn’t expect Audi to care much about redesigns and the sort, however it so happens that the German manufacturer has decided to give it a facelift nonetheless. And that’s not all. According to recent information the slightly redesigned Q3 will also cut on carbon emissions by about 17%.

Audi A4 TDi gets to USA in 2014

Category: Audi | Author: | Date: March 14th, 2013

Audi plans to make good on an earlier promise, and that’s to bring more diesel cars for the US market. They will do so in the form of the Audi A4 TDi.

The problem is that Audi thinks it makes no sense (and is probably right) to redesign the old A4 platform for the TDi engine. Instead they are going to wait for 2014, when they plan to use a different platform for the A4 series, making it easier and more cost effective.

Audi A4

The A4 is already a big hit with the americans, selling around 35.000 units in 2012. So making the model available with a diesel engine can only be good. Especially in today’s market, where diesel car demand is on the rise. Although more expensive than gasoline, diesel still makes sense since the engines get better and better at burning less of it.
