AUDI TT Concept

Audi promised us that its Allroad Shooting Brake concept from Detroit foretold the next-generationAudi TT. It didn’t lie. Ahead of the Geneva Motor Show, Audi has released several design sketches of the 2015 TT, and aside from losing the two-box design and taller Allroad ride height, the concept looks to be a dead ringer for the production car.

If you love the roofline of the first-generation TT, then you’ll love the latest car’s rounded roof, although the rest of the design has evolved towards a boxier, more aggressive look. The sketches also show a new take on Audi’s signature LED headlights that are mirrored in the taillights. There are still a couple more weeks before we’ll see the third-generation TT, but we’re already dreaming about how this car will look in RS guise.

AUDI A3

The A3 sedan is Audi’s answer to Mercedes-Benz CLA and the BMW 1 Series sedan. The sedan was unveiled at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show and made its Indian debut at the 2014 Auto Expo. It will slot in below the A4 as one of the entry-level models for the German marque. It has been spotted testing in India on multiple occasions in both the 1.8-litre TFSI petrol and 2.0-litre TDI diesel variants.

Audi A3 Sedan

Exterior
At 4.46 metres, the A3 sedan is shorter than the A4 by full 0.3 metres. It has MQB underpinning like most other new models under the VW umbrella. The overall appearance is typical Audi and most design elements are similar to that of the A4 sedan and this includes lights, lines on the side and the stance of the car. Audi says that the new model is a cross between coupe and three-box design. Internationally the car is mainly sold as a hatchback but this model is not expected to be launched in the Indian market.

Audi A3 Sedan Left Side

Interior
This sedan is smaller than the A4, so the space will also be relatively less. Its overall design is very close to the A4 but there are small elemental changes like the shape of the AC vents, pop-up digital display and the trim options.

Audi A3 Sedan Interior

The front seat space won’t be much of an issue, however, the rear is likely to be on the smaller end of the segment standard. The boot space, at 425 litres, will be sufficient for most occasions and is comparable to most of its rivals. The features list is expected to include Audi MMI and all the safety bits including ABS-EBS, ESP and airbags.
Engine and gearbox
The A3 sedan will be available in both petrol and diesel guise in India – the petrol version will be the 1.8-litre TFSI unit developing 177bhp and 250Nm, the oil burner is the 2.0-litre TDI mill with an output of 141bhp and 320Nm. Both the engines will power the front wheels via a seven-speed DSG gearbox.

Price and competition

The Audi A3 sedan is expected to be launched in August 2014. It is expected to be launched as a CKD directly and will compete with the BMW 1 Series and the Mercedes-Benz A-Class.

THE AUDI’S SUPERCAR AUDI R8

      AUDI R8

                                  

                                                              The audi r8 is beauty in its own. A supercar from alwayz known luxury car manufacturer ‘audi’.When we consider the finest sports cars in terms of their technologies, Audi R8 is the best option. Precision and performance are put beyond the limits in Audi R8. Engineers of Audi had developed the car which is embodied with best technology thereby fulfilling the requirement of perfection for the car. The four rings being the firm fixture in the motorsport and the new introduced quattro permanent all wheel drive engine had made the Audi R8 the topper in various racing events throughout the world.

Audi R8 has V8 mid-mounted engine and with quattro permanent wheel drive which adds to the performance, control and stability of the car. The newly introduced FSI technology in 2001 is such that the fuel is injected directly into the combustion chamber, all which helps in increasing the engine efficiency and the engine performance. It is to be considered that Audi is the first car to use Aluminium in building the body of the vehicle. And the latest upcoming in this technology is high-strength AudiSpace Frame (ASF), which provide more strenght to the3 vehicle with maximum possible light weight. Audi magnetic ride adaptive damper system is a new inovation by Audi having special damper oil, the shocks are so developed that the viscocity of the fluid filled in them can be changed with the applied magnetic field. There by making the car to adjust in different conditionns with appropriate damping force.

The mid-mounted V8 engine of Audi R8 with 4.2 litre displacement and four valve FSI technology is highly capacitive to produce 309kw of power and is capable to accelerate the new Audi R8 from 0 to 100 km/hr in just 4.6 seconds. The maximum torque delivering capacity of Audi R8 is 430 Nm with the amazing thrust it providing. With a top speed of 301 Km/hr the Audi offers a maximum comfort of power and thrill as possible, all there by providing excellent driving enjoyment. Besides generating power of the vehicle from displacement, the mid engine present in Audi R8 utilises high-revolution techology. This technology is highly capacitive to provide a top broad speed band of 8250rpm. With this high-revolution concept Audi R8 provides high torque, spontaneous movement response even at very low speeds of the car. The excellent thrust provided by Audi R8 is because of the its suspensions all ultimately increasing the transverse acceleration. The six speed manual gearbox is such developed that it fulfills the requirments of a racing car. This manual gearbox has been much more advanced to a R tronic transmission in order to increase the performance of the car. Automatic mode with wire shift technology allows even very short shift times.

THE AUDI A2

AUDI A2

                                                        The new 2012 2013 Audi A2 comes loaded with 1.8-liter, 170-horsepower engine that can tear up even the bumpiest roads. The Audi A2 3.0T models has 3.0-liter power plant that makes it almost 50 pounds lighter thanks to its extensive use of aluminum. At 220 horsepower, this second engine is strong – really strong. The result? A constant reminder that the greatest joy is the journey itself. Other 2012 2013 Audi A2 performance features include the five-speed Tiptronic transmission, which calls upon more than 200 dynamic shift programs to deliver the action of a five-speed manual without a clutch, and the four-link front suspension, which reduces unsprung weight. Also, at the core of every Audi performance sheet is five-valve technology that lowers emissions and raises driver exhilaration across the board.
                                      The Audi A2 also offers patented aluminum four-link front suspension with the “virtual steering axis” that keeps things smooth and comfortable. In terms of looks, the cars offer powerful tail ends, elegant cut lines, high belt lines, and front ends that are distinctly Audi A2. Inside, they offer wood or fiberglass trim, as well as dual- zone climate control, ergonomic seats, and, of course, second- generation Symphony stereos whose sound is second to none.

THE AUDI A3 HATCHBACK

  AUDI A3

The available TDI engine found in A3 comes with clean diesel technology for smooth and superior performance. It offers punchy acceleration and is relatively quiet around town. On the other hand, the TDI engine offers 34 miles per gallon of fuel economy, making it better as compared to other rivals like Toyota Camry Hybrid.
                                                The 2011 Audi A3 has a definite utility advantage against other entry level regular sedans such as Lexus HS 250h luxury hybrid, Acura TSX and Volvo S40. However, the A3 is a bit shaky in terms of lesser feature content and heftier price. There are plenty of models in the market that provide superior performance and excellent driving dynamics – Volkswagen GTI, Volvo C30, Volkswagen Golf TDI and Mini Cooper S.

Audi A3 has an elegant steering wheel along with the flat bottom, central console is designed with leather trimmed struts and stylish buttons over to give it sporty glance inside. To manage the navigation and entertainment a monitor has been attached on the above and control panel is kept similar to company’s ex-launched Audi R8 super car.  Door handles of the Audi A3 are very less in weight as these are made concave that increases the smoothness and comfort while holding. The complete new Audi A3 has six piston brake calipers and creamic brakes discs at the front, Audi magnetic ride technology for dampers helps rider to maintain a super speed with amazing control in any of the riding situation.
