  • New Audi S7 Sportback

    Audi has finally added spicier S versions of its redesigned A6 and A7 Sportback that launched last year, and the wait has definitely been worth it. As expected, the cars have ditched the 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 of the previous generation in favor of a 2.9-liter twin-turbo V-6. Despite the drop in cylinder count, peak output remains unchanged at 450 horsepower and 442 pound-feet of torque. In other markets, a 3.0-liter turbocharged V-6 diesel mill will be available in both cars. Some markets will also have the option of a wagon body style for the S6. Audiphiles will recognize the...

    Sport sedan fans can look forward to a redesigned S6, prototypes for which have been spotted on multiple occasions. Audi has already unveiled the redesigned version of the regular A6 and judging by the lack of camouflage gear on testers for the S6 its debut can't be far. Look for the debut to take place early next year. A redesigned S6 Avant wagon is also on the way, though sadly the wagon isn't likely to reach the United States. Clearly visible on the S6 prototype are the sporty front and rear fascias and four large exhaust tips. You'll also spot the large brake discs and calipers that...

  • 2019 Audi A6

    The new 2019 Audi A6 was mostly telegraphed. The luxury four-door sedan that was revealed Tuesday at the 2018 Geneva International Motor Show follows the same jabs that the larger 2019 Audi A8 and 2019 Audi A7 threw first with a mid-size uppercut from Ingolstadt. The A6 combines technology found in the opulent full-sizer and sultry sportback with a raft of fuel-saving features. Whether the new sedan is a knockout on the road, we'll have to wait and see. Power, planted Audi detailed two engines for the A6, although only one is likely headed to the U.S. A 3.0-liter turbocharged V-6 likely will...
