Audi RS5 2013

Audi RS5 2013 Audi RS5 2013   After our first drive at the Ascari circuit in southern Spain, we were even a little more encouraged by the RS5 than we had been after our previous track session in the TT RS. Subsequent high-spirited comparison drives on warm and dry surfaces, however, revealed the original 444-horsepower RS 5 as no match for the sheer dynamic satisfaction of the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG coupe and BMW M3 coupe.   Audi RS5 2013 The RS5, even with its improved lighter and quicker-reacting Quattro, simply had too hard a time resisting prodigious amounts of understeer. We were left begging for effortless and soul-stirring oversteer whenever exactly that would have been called for. Everything else on the RS5 is so good that this one bit just made us whiney. Checkout the Dynamic Video of Audi RS5 2013 showcasing the best performance, engine sound, acceleration, speed, exterior and interiorRead More

Audi A4 Quattro 2013

Audi A4 2013 The only A4 2.0 TFSI sedan available for testing carried the standard six-speed manual and was gifted with Quattro all-wheel drive. The on-road behavior of this most popular North American A4 engine trim frankly hasn’t changed a whole lot, but that’s not a criticism. There is still 208 horsepower on tap and torque stands at an eminently usable 258 pound-feet between 1,500 and 4,200 rpm. Bear in mind that’s for a car that weighs in at 3,550 pounds as tested (we’re estimating it’ll ring up at 3,640 pounds with the U.S.’ optional eight-speed Tiptronic gearbox). That’s a net weight loss of over 50 pounds if we are to believe 2011 and 2012 spec sheets from both sides of the pond placed side-by-side. Leading the tally of changes is a revamped thermal management system that heats everything more quickly at start-up in order to avoid wasting energy, aRead More
