Audi RS3 Sportback is the hottest hatch

Fans of compact, European vehicles that mix luxury and performance should be in paradise right now. There’s already the 320-horsepower M235i from BMW and the 355-hp CLA45 AMG (or A45 elsewhere) from Mercedes-Benz, but you can now add one more to the list. Meet the Audi RS3 Sportback, which boast…

2015 Audi A3

What Does Your Car Say About You?

What kind of watch do you wear?

Especially today, when wearing a wristwatch is practically obviated by the near-ubiquitous use of cellphones, the timepiece found on one’s arm makes a statement about how people perceive themselves.

A sport watch from Nike…


Audi A3 outselling Mercedes CLA 2 to 1 in its first 3 months on sale

The Audi A3 is on fire in North American showrooms. Not literally of course, that would be horrible, and the situation we’re referring to is a good thing indeed, as the Four Rings has a serious hit on its hands with the compact luxury sedan. Looking at just its first three months on the market,…

Audi perfecting drool-worthy RS3 hot hatch

A sure-fire way of adding excitement to any Audi is removing the “A” from its model name and replacing it with “RS.” Take the RS4, RS5, RS6 and RS7 as proof of this fact. Of course, the transformation from “A” to “RS” wouldn’t be complete with a huge bump in power, a far more sporting…

Every get the feeling that automakers aren’t really listening to what it is that you want in an automobile? Well, Audi is. Following what it calls “an outpouring of enthusiasts’ support,” the German automaker has announced that it is bringing the new, 2016 A3 Sportback to North America under…


Audi A3 Sportback TDI Coming To America Afterall

Audi has relented under immense pressure from fans calling for them to bring the TDI version of the A3 Sportback to North America. Okay, maybe not immense pressure but Audi says they are responding to thousands of e-mails and posts on social media when they reconsidered. They had previously only announced the Audi A3 e-tron would be coming to North America.

The A3 sportback was never really popular in North America, as many people shopping for this type of vehicle typically went with either a hatchback, wagon or crossover depending on how they saw the A3 sportback. Will the addition of a TDI model really make a difference? I’m thinking it won’t but I guess we’ll see with the increasing popularity of diesel powered vehicles. Audi obviously knew the sportback wasn’t popular in North America which is why they finally brought the sedan to this side of the pond.
