Four Audi models that we can’t wait to drive

30.08.2016

Audi has been making some pretty good cars lately and while everyone is going mad over the fantastic Audi R8, we had a look trough their line-up and found some models that we just can't wait to drive.

 

Audi TT RS:

At first glance, the Audi TT RS clearly hints at just how much power there is under its streamlined skin. Its new five-cylinder aluminium engine delivers 300kW and a full 480Nm of torque is applied to the front and rear wheels. The traction control system manages all its power distribution for maximum acceleration with minimal slip. As a result, the Coupé takes 3.7 seconds to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h, and the Roadster takes 3.9 seconds. No other TT has sprinted this fast. The brilliant torque is accompanied by typical five-cylinder sound - which is music to the ears of horsepower purists. This sound passes through the RS exhaust system and is projected to the surroundings via two large oval tailpipes. Other eye-catching features at the rear are the new OLED lights in 3D design, which are being implemented for the first time in a production Audi.

Audi SQ7

With 320kW and 900Nm of torque, the new Audi SQ7 TDI is the most powerful diesel SUV on the market. It also leads the competition in numerous other technical fields. Its newly developed 4.0 TDI engine features a world first: An electric powered compressor gives the Audi SQ7 TDI outstanding off-the-line performance. Yet it consumes on average 7.4 litres of fuel per 100 kilometres, according to Audi.

Audi S4

The heart of the S4 model is a newly developed petrol powered V6 engine with turbocharging. The 3.0 TFSI has an output of 260kW; its 500Nmof torque is available across a wide range of speeds from 1,300 to 4,500 rpm. The engine outstrips its predecessor in terms of power and torque, while simultaneously offering significantly lower fuel consumption and weight. The engine can accelerate the Audi S4 from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.7 seconds, and the electronic limiter kicks in at 250km/h.

Audi Q2

Audi extends its Q family with a compact SUV. The Audi Q2 is an urban-type vehicle for everyday driving and recreation, bundling a progressive design with a high level of functionality. Connectivity, infotainment and assistance systems are on level of full-size class. At the front, a strong image is created by the Singleframe grille in octagonal design that is positioned high as well as large air inlets. Especially eye-catching is the low roof that descends and merges into the C-pillars with color offset blades. Audi offers a selection of six engines for the Q2: three TFSI and three TDI engines whose power outputs range from 85kW to 140kW.
