    2020 Audi Q3 Sportback

    This is NOT the standard Q3, but the BMW X2 rival, a coupe style SUV. Audi is adding a compact SUV in coupé shape to its model range: the Audi Q3 Sportback. The new model combines the strong presence and versatile everyday convenience of an SUV with the sporty elegance and agile handling of a coupé. This makes it the first compact crossover of the Audi brand. Low roofline, muscular body: the design The Audi Q3 Sportback stands for strength and precision to an equal degree, and reflects this in all design details. The black grille of the octagonal Singleframe is strongly three-dimensional in design, and this makes it particularly sporty. The same applies for the trapezoidal air inlets and the expressive bumper with its flat blade. The coupé-like passenger cabin acts as a contrast to the distinctive attachments, which are painted in contrasting colors and thus emphasize the SUV character. The low roofline gives way to flat D-pillars and ends in a roof edge spoiler. As a result, the Audi Q3 Sportback appears much longer than its sister model Q3. In addition, the SUV-coupé is almost three centimeters flatter, and thus has a more muscular appearance. Above the wheels, strong contours draw attention to the quattro drive, which comes as standard with most engines. Many light and shadow effects arise on the plastic-formed rear. The low window, flanked by aero trims, and the sporty bumper, which takes up the look of the air inlets, emphasize the width of the Audi Q3 Sportback. The reversing lights contribute to this as well: they run inwards in a tapered shape, just like the flat headlights. Audi supplies the latter in three versions up to Matrix LED technology, whose adaptive high beam intelligently illuminates the road as best suits the driving situation. Sporty on and off the road: the suspension The Audi Q3 Sportback offers driving fun on various terrains. In the city, on long-haul routes, or on easy terrain - the compact crossover is a dynamic all-rounder. It features progressive steering as standard, whose gear ratio becomes increasingly direct as the steering angle increases, and the sport suspension. On request, the suspension is available with damper control, which further increases the range between dynamism and comfort. Depending on the driving situation, road condition, and personal preferences, the driver can vary the car's characteristics via the standard dynamic handling system, Audi drive select, in six profiles, including the offroad mode. In addition to the engine and transmission set-up, this system also influences the electronically adjustable shock absorbers and the steering assistance. As an option, the hill descent control can offer support: it keeps the speed selected by the driver constant on an incline greater than 6%. TFSI, TDI, S tronic, quattro: the drive For the market launch in Europe, a gasoline and a diesel engine are available for selection for the Audi Q3 Sportback. With 169 kW (230 metric hp), the 2.0 TFSI is the most powerful engine. The 2.0 TDI has an output of 110 kW (150 metric hp). Shortly after market launch, it will also be available as a manual transmission with a quattro drive. Additional engines will follow in the course of the year, including a more powerful diesel and an entry-level gasoline engine, which works together with a 48 V mild-hybrid system. During deceleration, it recovers energy; during acceleration from low speeds, it supports the engine. In real-life driving, it can save up to 0.4 l of fuel per 100 km (62.1 mi). In the top engines, the quattro all-wheel drive takes on the job of force transmission as standard. Its central component is a hydraulic multi-plate clutch on the rear axle. Its electronic management combines outstanding stability and strong traction with a high level of driving enjoyment. At the limits of performance, the quattro drive works closely together with the wheel-selective torque control, It makes handling even more dynamic and stable by means of gentle brake interventions on the inside wheels with the quattro drive and the inside front wheel with the front drive. Variable comfort: Interior and space concept The Audi Q3 Sportback is 4.50 m (14.8 ft) long, 1.84 m (6.0 ft) wide and 1.56 m (5.1 ft) high; its wheelbase measures 2.68 m (8.8 ft). This results in a large and highly variable interior. The rear seats offer space for three people. They can be moved 130 mm (5.1 in) longitudinally as standard; their backrests are divided into three sections, and their inclination can be adjusted in seven stages. The volume of the luggage compartment ranges from 530 l (18.7 cu ft) to 1,400 l (49.4 cu ft). The loading floor can be adjusted to two levels, and the rear shelf is located beneath it. As an option, Audi will deliver an electric tailgate that can also be opened and closed with a foot motion. The front seats - electrically adjustable and heated on request - offer a sporty position and a high level of comfort. Depending on the equipment, there are sport seats with contrasting stitching and colored stripes along the side panels. In addition, Alcantara surfaces on the instrument panel and the armrests emphasize the progressive design philosophy. In the dark, the optional contour/ambient lighting package sets lighting accents with its 30 selectable colors. Digital world: Displays and operation The operating and display concept proves how Audi is pushing ahead with digitalization: Even the basic equipment includes a digital instrument cluster with a 10.25-inch screen diagonal, which the driver operates using the multifunction steering wheel. In the top-of-the-line system, MMI navigation plus, the displays appear in the Audi virtual cockpit, which offers many additional functions. A touch display measuring 10.1 inches is positioned in the center of the instrument panel. When a function is selected, it emits acoustic feedback. Just like in the brand's full-size class models, it is surrounded by wide, high-gloss black trim. Together with the air-conditioning control unit located beneath it, the display is ergonomically tilted 10° towards the driver. On request, the 12.3-inch Audi virtual cockpit plus is available with three selectable layouts, including a particularly dynamic view. The flat menu structure is complemented by a control unit that uses natural language and can also understand free wordings. Entering a navigation destination and the MMI search are based on free text input. The system recognizes the driver's most frequent destinations based on previous journeys, allowing it to generate suitable suggestions. When doing so, it takes into consideration statistical empirical values regarding the traffic load and time of day. Comprehensive networking: Infotainment and Audi connect Together with MMI navigation plus, the online services of Audi connect are made available on board at LTE Advanced speed via a permanently installed SIM card. This includes, for example, online traffic information and the online points of interest service, which complements route guidance with photos, opening hours, and user evaluations. Thanks to the inter-connectivity of the Audi fleet, the Q3 Sportback receives and provides information about parking spaces on the roadside, hazard areas, and speed limits, which are detected via the on-board camera and vehicle sensors. Traffic light information is a new feature among the Car-to-X services. The car receives data from a city's traffic computer, as a result of which the driver receives information about traffic light phases in the Audi virtual cockpit. This allows drivers to adjust their speed pre-emptively, which increases efficiency and improves traffic flow. This offering is initially available in individual European cities and will be gradually extended depending on the infrastructure in the urban area. Another new feature is the cloud-based Amazon voice service Alexa, which streams music and audio books and also offers access to more than 80,000 Alexa Skills. Navigation with Google Earth™ and the hybrid radio, which automatically switches between FM, DAB and online streaming depending on the reception conditions, also form part of the Audi connect navigation & infotainment plus package. The voice control system uses the detailed knowledge in the cloud to answer the driver's questions and commands. The free myAudi App and the Audi smartphone interface ensure interconnectivity between the car and smartphone. This integrates Android and iOS cell phones into the on-board infotainment system. The content of the smartphone is shown in the MMI display via Apple CarPlay or Android Auto, and no cables are required if the top infotainment system is used with an iPhone. The Audi phone box and the Bang & Olufsen Premium Sound System with virtual 3D sound round off this comprehensive offer. Outstanding in any situation: the assist systems In the Audi Q3 Sportback, four standard systems are used for safety. These include the lane departure warning and the lane change warning. While the former helps the driver to remain in the lane, the latter points out critical situations when changing lanes, such as if there is a vehicle in the blind spot. The series scope in Germany also includes Audi pre sense front. If a head-on collision is imminent, it outputs a visual, acoustic, and haptic warning to the driver. In an emergency, it causes full braking and initiates the Audi pre sense basic safety measures. This involves tightening the front seat belts, closing the windows and the optional sliding roof, and activating the hazard warning lights. The adaptive cruise assist is a highlight of the optional systems. It takes the burden off the driver during longitudinal and lateral guidance. Ultra-modern systems such as the 360 degree cameras offer assistance with parking and maneuvering. They show the direct surroundings of the SUV coupé on the MMI display, and the driver can choose from several perspectives. The park assist automatically guides the car into and out of parking spaces. If, for example, the driver wants to back out of an entrance, the rear cross traffic assist warns about approaching vehicles that the system classifies as critical. Available commercially from fall onwards: Market launch and edition model Delivery of the Audi Q3 Sportback in Europe will start in the fall 2019. In Germany, the price for the 35 TDI S tronic is €40,200, while the 45 TFSI quattro S tronic is available from a starting price of €46,200. An exclusive edition model in two designs accompanies the market launch, Depending on their paint finishes, they are called "edition one dew silver" and "edition one mythos black." In both models, the exterior is based on the S line and the black styling package. Dark decorative panels in the matrix LED headlights and 20-inch wheels make for an even sportier look. The interior features a silver edition model with the noble interior design selection and bright colors, while the black model is based on the dark interior S line, supplemented by blue Alcantara areas on the instrument panel and the armrests in the doors.

  4. The video footage is from a cam car, which was also involved in the chain collision. This accident happened on the Pan Island Expressway (PIE) towards Kallang-Paya Lebar Expressway (KPE) before Exit 12, causing a massive jam. In the video, a white Audi A3 Cabriolet performed an emergency brake just before the cam car slams into its rear. Moments after that, an over-turned Honda Jazz slid along lane 2 of the expressway. What exactly happened? A top-down view of the accident revealed that four vehicles were involved in the chain collision. It turns out that the Audi A3 Cabriolet performed an emergency brake because of the car in front of it. However, it remains unclear why the front car braked so abruptly, causing this accident. There are speculations that the Honda Jazz swerved out of the lane to avoid this chain collision. As a result, it turned turtle from the sudden shift in weight balance. A 7-month-old girl and two men were conveyed to the hospital after this chain collision. Netizens' comments As always, please drive safely and practice defensive driving at all times. We hope that all those involved in the accident are well and wishing them a speedy recovery. --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

  8. hi all. I'm looking to buy a COE car. my budget is $40 to $45.

  9. There’s nothing quite like the exhilarating performance abilities that Audi’s RS range offers, and they’re now all here in Singapore – take your pick. There’s a lot to love about the RS range from Audi. They all offer tremendous performance credentials, every day practicality and usability, along with a dynamic driving experience unlike any other. They’re all great cars. But the best part? All the new RS models available as of today are now available in Singapore. All of them. That’s quite a big deal. Each Audi RS model has its own set of special qualities that make them great. And this run down will tell you why all of us love them so much. RS Q3 and RS Q3 Sportback There is nothing quite like the RS Q3. You can have it in your preferred bodystyle – as an SUV or Sportback - but in its heart lies an engine unlike any other. The 2.5-litre turbocharged five-cylinder engine is one that harks back to Audi’s rally days. Both the RS Q3 and RS Q3 Sportback make 394bhp and 480Nm of torque. It is no slouch. Those numbers are fast car numbers. As thrilling as speed is, what charms the most about the RS Q3 is the way it doles all that power down. There is nothing like the sonorous soundtrack from a five-cylinder. And if you’re looking for a silhouette that’s a little more sensual, there’s the RS Q3 Sportback, too. And to put that either in calm and understated SUV body, or in a striking and sensous silhouette like the Sportback – whatever your choice, there really is nothing quite as thrilling like it in its class. RS 4 Avant The thing about Audis is how approachable they are. They fit in almost any lifestyle, with more practical options, like an Avant if you need more loading space. Avant is Audi speak for a station wagon. And you can only get the new RS 4 exclusively as one. In its performance too it is approachable. A 2.9-litre twin-turbo V6 sends 444bhp and 600Nm of torque to all four wheels. You are guaranteed to win traffic light races, but it is a car that won’t bite you in sticky situations when you’re at your own personal limits of fast road driving. And not to forget the surprise on every other driver’s face when they see an Audi station wagon moving away at rapid speed. RS 5 Sportback and RS 5 Coupe But not everyone wants a station wagon. The sedan is the traditional choice. But what’s the point of being traditional if you have 444bhp and 600Nm of mind numbing torque? The RS 5 Sportback, then, will be your best bet. You get the same firepower, but in a suit that’s a little more tailored. In this case, a sloping, coupe-like four-door. Just like the RS 4 it has been updated with a stronger looking front, along with various infotainment and feature updates that add to the RS driving experience, such as two definable performance driving modes, along with an optional sports exhaust. And of course, if you prefer, you can go for the full two-door lifestyle with the RS 5 Coupe, too. RS 6 Avant Who can forget the RS 6 Avant? This writer for sure has not. It is a powerhouse of speed. And everyone gets to enjoy it, with luggage in tow, too. That’s right, this is another fast station wagon from the Audi RS stable. You can get the RS 6 in this generation only as an Avant. And that makes it a little more special. And power is immense. So are the numbers. 591bhp. 800Nm. If that doesn’t surprise you, this is a four-wheel drive station wagon that’ll hit 100km/h in 3.6 seconds, and top out at 305km/h without its speed governor, or if you have no government to catch you doing it. In every gear, and at any speed, the RS 6 always pulls strongly. But of course, you still can turn down the fun and it becomes your regular A6 if you ever need it. RS 7 Sportback Again, there’s only so much you can do with almost 600bhp and 800Nm if you can’t flaunt it just a little bit, right? For the first time ever in Singapore, the RS 7 Sportback is here. This is no sensuous and soft four-door coupe. This is a muscular and aggressive one – wider by some 40mm than the regular A7. And putting that firepower together with these good looks certainly sounds like a good idea. There’s some RS-specific bits that the RS 7 Sportback benefits from, such as its dynamic OLED taillights that offer a distinct RS light show whenever you lock or unlock the doors. Yes, the same 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 heart lies in the RS 7 Sportback as it does in the RS6. So expect the same brutal abilities of it, and then some. RS Q8 Audi RS isn’t backing down with its offerings, though. Everyone loves an SUV today. What about a fast, and I mean very, very fast SUV? Even better. You cannot deny the Audi Q8’s good looks. It is tremendous, and offers a lot of road presence without being too over the top. And that tremendous, twin-turbo V8 powerplant powering the RS 6 and RS 7 Sportback? You’ll find it in the RS Q8, too. This is an SUV that only takes 0.2-seconds lesser than the RS 7 Sportback to complete the century sprint. But a clumbersone SUV it is not around corners. It is as sharp a tool as the RS Q3. It is no surprise, then, that the RS Q8 is the current lap record holder for a production SUV around the Nurburgring Nordschleife. R8 Spyder and R8 Coupe Here is a sports car that you never lose any practicality for. It is the Audi R8, and it is all updated for 2021. Once available with a quattro all-wheel drive system, you can now have the R8 in rear-wheel drive. You see, this is a car that still appeals to the true car enthusiast. And yet, offers the flamboyance of a low slung two-door coupe that most would lust over. Sitting mid-way in the car is a 5.2-litre naturally aspirated V10 that sings, making 532bhp to the rear wheels. But the familiarity of the R8, just like all Audis, offers it that ability for many to drive a super car every day, for work and leisure, without compromise. Be it the R8 Spyder or the Coupe that you choose, this is one car that lets yourself and others around you experience the best when it comes to motoring excellence. --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

    Reckless Audi A4 driver hits FoodPanda rider

    An Audi A4 was seen recklessly cutting 2 lanes along Upper Bukit Timah Road on Wednesday (June 23), which resulted in the vehicle hitting a FoodPanda rider. According to the video, the black Audi A4 was cruising on the right of the camcar when it suddenly swerved towards the left, almost hitting a white Toyota van in the middle of the road. Upon collision, the FoodPanda rider and his motorcycle flew for a short distance before landing in front of a petrol station. It has been speculated by the video's description that the driver of the Audi A4 might have wanted to turn left but failed to form up in time, which resulted in the sudden swerve towards the left. Netizens' reactions Many netizens were upset with the reckless driving behaviour of the Audi A4, which could have prevented the accident if the driver had properly planned his route and was more aware of his surroundings. While we are unsure of the FoodPanda rider's condition at the moment, we wish him a speedy recovery and hope that all drivers will pay more attention when they're on the roads. --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

  11. After 2 years of rumors and several CGIs, it is finally coming... Audi's new Q5 Sportback has been spotted ahead of its reveal later this year. This is the second SUV Sportback from Audi, the first being the Q3 Sportback, which was launched last year. When attached to an SUV, the Sportback name indicates a coupe-like roofline ending in a liftback, as opposed to the more upright tailgates traditionally found on SUVs. At the front, Audi has ditched the headlights of the standard Q5 in favor of ones more akin to those from the Q3 Sportback. This prototype also features a blacked-out front grille with a chrome surround as well as some dashes of silver around the edges of the front air intakes. As the Sportback in its name implies, Audi has overhauled the shape of the vehicle’s roof to give it that Coupe-like appearance. There is no camouflage per say at the rear but there is some tape over the taillights, hiding parts of their design. With that being said, it is clear that they too have been altered from the taillights of the normal Q5.
  12. I guess money can't buy proper road etiquette, can it? On 5th May 2021, a short video was posted on Facebook of an Audi A8 driver driving recklessly along Lower Delta Road. It's so bad that I even experienced some serious second-hand embarrassment from watching it. For those of you who cannot stomach the video, I am going to provide a play-by-play description of the incident below. So, we start off with the camcar driver, who is innocently drives along the road and slows down when approaching a red light at a traffic junction. He stops behind a black Audi A8, which continues to inch forward past the white line with total disregard to the red light. The driver continues to try his luck and even attempts to turn right while there's traffic coming from both sides on the adjacent road. As if realising that there's no way the universe will let it turn right, the Audi suddenly reverses and almost hits the camcar. Once the lights turn green, the Audi wastes no time zooming ahead without stopping at the right turn pocket. The driver positions the Audi dangerously near oncoming vehicles as if asking for an accident to happen. The Audi edged so far into the lane with oncoming traffic that it even made a silver vehicle stop dead in its tracks to avoid a collision. To carry on forward, the silver car had to manoeuvre itself around the Audi in an awkward fashion. If you thought that was all, think again. There's more! When the Audi driver saw an empty pocket of space, it sped off to complete the right turn, but there were two oncoming vehicles that could have crashed into the Audi if they had gone any faster. Netizens quickly took to the comments to voice their opinions (with some speculating that the Audi driver is either drunk, high or does not have a driving license): Simplified translation: 'You have to wait for death if you want to reincarnate, what's the rush?' What do you guys think of this road menace?

    Audi A6 e-tron Concept

    Audi claimed that this concept is 95% representative of the final model, and the production model is expected to be unveiled in the 2nd half of 2022. Anyone noticed something familiar? Audi is resolutely pushing ahead with its "e-volution" towards electric mobility and have just unveiled the forerunner of an innovative family of fully electric, production cars - the four-door Audi A6 e-tron concept - at the Auto Shanghai 2021 show. A completely new technology architecture, the "Premium Platform Electric," or PPE for short, will serve as the technology platform for these vehicles in the future. For its part, the PPE technology will ensure that what the car's lines imply is actually translated into dynamic driving performance and everyday suitability befitting use as a primary vehicle. Specifically, this means that depending on the selected drive system and model version, an Audi A6 e-tron is expected to boast a range of more than 700 kilometers (based on the WLTP standard) in the future - and the most powerful members of the family will sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in less than four seconds. The combination of safety features and aesthetic design has always been of particular importance to Audi. That's why the small, high-resolution projectors also display warning symbols on the ground - to warn a bike rider that the car door is about to open, for example. Another four high-resolution LED projectors - inconspicuously integrated into the corners of the vehicle - generate turn signal projections. The design of these projections can be modified to address different markets and approval regions as required. The Digital Matrix LED front headlights achieve almost cinematic quality. If, for example, the Audi A6 e-tron concept is parked in front of a wall during a break to recharge the battery, the driver and passengers can pass the time playing a video game projected onto it. Instead of on a small screen in the cockpit, they'll see their respective game's virtual landscapes projected onto the wall in XXL format - and all this via the Digital Matrix LED headlights. Players can stand next to or directly in front of the vehicle for a particularly good view of the game, which is several meters wide. OK, back to my question at the start of the post...

    RZCrewgarage

    Hi. anyone in this forum bought rims from RZCrewgarage?
  18. Welcome back, and we have another review with sgCarMart! And today, we have the 2020 Audi Q7! Being the largest and most practical vehicle in the Audi lineup, the Q7 has been refreshed, and it now comes with more aggressive lines seen in its stablemates, but still retains that utility and practicality that it was brought to the table. After all, a seven-seat vehicle is always useful. So, let's see what Julian has to say about the Q7. From the get-go, it looks handsome. Audi's design language has been pretty good these past years, nothing too controversial. And not to mention, their gorgeous daytime running lights and sequential signals are always a welcome touch. I mean, just look at it. Audi really has it down pat with the design of the grille and those daytime running lights. And if you can take anyone's word for it, it is Julian's. "Jumping into this car, it instantly made me feel comfortable". That's pretty high praise, I would say. That grille is indeed pretty bold, and as per Julian said, he's not sure if the grille will suit the Q3 or Q5, but it fits the Q7. And to get more context on how big the Q7 really is.... The rear of the Q7 looks just as good, sleek, modern and clean. No need to fuss around when lowering the third row of seats. Audi has already thought of that and given you buttons to electronically lower the seats. Audi knows the Q7 is a tall vehicle and loading it can be difficult for shorter people, so there is also a button to lower the rear of the car so as to make loading stuff in easier. About 750 litres of boot space with the third row folded. If that isn't enough for you, knocking down the second row will give you over 2000 litres of cargo space. And if that still isn't enough, get a van. And if you're wondering, yes, the boot opens and closes electronically as well. With the seat set to Jon's height (Jon is about 1.8m tall), Julian has a ton of leg room, even headroom. A blessing in Singapore's weather, the Q7 comes with rear aircon vents not only in the middle, but also on the B-pillars so as to blow air directly at rear passengers. And surprisingly, the third row actually doesn't look too bad. As long as you aren't too big or tall, you should be able to fit nicely back here. Clean, sleek and modern with screens for your infotainment, climate control and instrument cluster. The Virtual Cockpit, as Audi terms it. And always appreciated in a big car, 360 degree parking cameras and sensors. Still curious? Find out more on what Julian has to say about the Q7 in the video review below!

    Audi A5 Sportback

    Another beauty car from Audi.. http://www.sgcarmart.com/new_cars/newcars_...p?CarCode=10763
  21. With a potent five-cylinder engine and quattro AWD underpinnings, the all-new 2020 Audi RS Q3 provides a real point of difference to the hi-po four-cylinder brigade. It’s a big step forward from the old RS Q3, too, which always seemed to be an afterthought rather than a pre-planning exercise. Audi RS Q3 Sportback Tweaked By ABT With More Power, Custom Wheels The inline-five engine gets a 10-percent power hike. It’s safe to say ABT is quite happy with Audi Sport’s decision to expand its portfolio as that means more business for the tuner. One of the recent entries into the ever-growing lineup is the RS Q3 Sportback, a compact crossover suffering from a multiple personality disorder by trying to pass off as a coupe. While the vehicle’s shape is questionable, you probably won’t find anyone complaining about what’s under the hood. The inline-five engine is a dying breed and quite the rarity in the car industry nowadays, so we’re happy Audi is still installing the 2.5 TFSI in the RS3, TT RS, and the RS Q3. The tuners at ABT have been working on this engine for a while, so it comes as no surprise they’re now announcing an upgrade program tailored to the latest RS Sportback. Courtesy of the ABT Engine Control Unit, the turbocharged mill produced at the Győr plant in Hungary has been taken from 400 horsepower and 354 pound-feet (480 Newton-meters) to 440 hp and 384 lb-ft (520 Nm). The newly gained muscle is reflected in the hot crossover’s performances as the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) now takes just 4.3 seconds (-0.2s). The top speed has been modified as well, increasing from 155 mph (250 km/h) to 177 mph (285 km/h). ABT also made some changes on the outside by replacing the OEM wheels with its own 20-inch set. The wide spacing of the spokes has allowed the tuner to shave off some weight while boosting the visual appeal as the brake calipers are now more visible than before. At an additional cost, a bigger 21-inch set can be ordered.
  22. Based on the Porsche Taycan, the Audi has a character all its own (and it might even be more fun). At the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show (a time when we could all still gather around a car and discuss it clearly without masks), Audi unveiled an EV prototype that was a huge success. The name? The Audi E-Tron GT Concept. After two-plus years of waiting, the automaker is ready to debut the production-ready 2022 Audi E-Tron GT, arriving on our roads with only minor alterations from its concept predecessor. A few weeks after its official presentation, we were able to take the wheel of the model for two short hours in Reims, France, for a very preliminary "first taste," stoking our appetites for a more complete drive in the coming weeks. This was an opportunity to get a closer look at the famous platform-mate of the Porsche Taycan and to check whether the E-Tron GT upholds Audi's claim that it is indeed a different animal than its cousin from Stuttgart. Love At First Sight? Instantly, the Audi E-Tron GT wows onlookers with its spectacular design and unusual details. Although it looks much more imposing than the Taycan 4S, the two actually share the same footprint, with an identical 114.2-inch wheelbase and only marginal length and width differences – the Taycan 4S spans 195.4 inches long and 84.4 inches wide, while the Euro-spec E-Tron is up inch between the bumpers and 0.6-inch between the mirrors. But while Porsche comparisons are inevitable, it also must be said that the E-Tron is also far more dynamic-looking than the similarly sized S7 Sportback, thanks to a 0.2-inch-lower roofline and some incremental length and width increases. Customers in this type of segment are all but guaranteed to respond positively to the E-Tron GT's stance, and the wind will love it too, thanks to a drag coefficient of 0.24 (slightly up on the smoother Taycan's 0.22). Like the exterior, the cabin is no mere copy-paste of the Porsche EV, but a bona fide Audi interior. While the Taycan features up to four interior screens, the E-Tron GT makes do with two – a 12.3-inch Audi Virtual Cockpit instrument cluster and a 10.1-inch infotainment system. For our part, we find it more ergonomic, thanks in particular to the presence of physical buttons for certain shortcuts. On the other hand, as in the Taycan, we still feel a bit overwhelmed, and our tester wasn't even equipped with the optional MMI Touch secondary center display. The 2022 Audi E-Tron GT also isn't the best in terms of interior roominess, with fairly cramped rear seats. And thanks to a fairly prominent door sill (a function of the floor-mounted batteries), you'll have to contort yourself to get in. At the very least, luggage space shouldn't be an issue. This European-market E-Tron GT features a 405-liter cargo area under the rear hatch and an 81-liter frunk – that converts to 14.3 cubic feet and 2.9 cubic feet respectively, though those numbers don't necessarily correspond to official US-market measuring standards. The 2022 Audi E-Tron GT, By The Numbers This sporty (but not too sporty, since there's an RS version coming) EV has two electric motors; one mounted on the front axle makes 235 horsepower on its own, while the rear motor produces 429. Between the two, the E-Tron GT reins in 469 ponies, with a total of 464 pound-feet as well. Also, an occasional-use "overboost" function frees up 522 hp and 472 lb-ft, useful for quick passes or stoplight getaways. Audi claims a 60-mile-per-hour sprint of 3.9 seconds and a top speed of 152 mph. Like the Taycan but unlike some other EVs, the E-Tron GT has a two-speed gearbox, allowing for faster response across a wider speed range. What's more, a rear differential lock allows for better grip when exiting corners or encountering bad weather. Notably, the Audi's powertrain corresponds more closely to that of the Taycan 4S with Performance Battery Plus, eclipsing both the standard Taycan 4S and the base Taycan in terms of power and speed. Porsche won't release its grip on flagship performance though; both the Taycan Turbo and Turbo S outpace the forthcoming Audi RS E-Tron GT. As far as charging is concerned, Audi claims that taking the battery from 5 percent to 80 percent will take 22.5 minutes with a maximum charging power of 270 kW. It will take about nine hours on a standard home charging outlet to go from 0 to 100 percent. On the battery side, we have an 800-volt system, not a 400-volt system, which allows for a more consistent distribution of performance. Comprised of 33 separate modules with 12 cells each, the battery contains 396 cells for a total capacity of 93.4 kilowatt-hours. Each module has an internal control unit to manage voltage and temperature. Integrated into the cooling circuit of the car via a heat pump, the battery can be cooled or heated to be perpetually within an ideal temperature window, minimizing range degradation and prolonging battery life. Is It Really An Audi? Audi claims an EPA-rated range of 238 miles, and fortunately, after two hours of driving and one hour of photography, we didn't come close to depleting the battery. Of course, such a short drive cycle isn't enough to really evaluate the E-Tron GT's range claims (we'll need much more time for that), so we chose to spend most of our time concentrating on the EV's dynamics and driving behavior. From the very first spin, we expected the E-Tron to be a perfect copy of Porsche's Taycan, which would have been a great outcome for the firm with four rings. But we should have listened to the company representatives when they said that the Audi takes Porsche's underpinnings, but applies a different philosophy to them. You can feel within the first few blocks that, true to its name, the E-Tron is more of a GT car, with a softer suspension and more subtly tuned steering. That's not enough to make it a "soft" car, though – quite the opposite, with 469 hp to play with, the Audi is plenty fast. But while the Taycan absolutely crushes you against your seat, the E-Tron GT is a bit more docile, with less violent acceleration. That doesn't stop it from offering the driver a dynamic experience, and it's still very fun to drive. The two-speed gearing is good, and dynamic behavior is better. Thanks to some weather during our test drive, the road was particularly greasy. We weren't concerned, because if the E-Tron GT was as grounded as a Taycan, only the laws of physics could stop our enthusiasm. The tires play a key role here too, obviously. With Goodyear Eagle F1 rubber, our Audi E-Tron GT Quattro could quickly turn into a dancer, especially during overly ambitious acceleration at the exit of a curve that could result in some delightful, controllable oversteer. Not since the mid-engined R8 RWD has an Audi felt so sporty and playful. Even more surprising, the E-Tron GT is particularly fun on twisty roads, more so than a base Porsche Taycan, which will prefer to play the efficiency card. The Audi's steering is less incisive and its suspension is softer, but the result is, possibly paradoxically, more frisky and enjoyable. And all this without breaking your lumbar vertebrae at the slightest bump. That may be the mark of a true GT car – comfortable over long distances, without sacrificing the joy of making good time over a twisty, undulating road. Of course, it's hard to argue with the laws of physics too much when piloting more than 5,000 pounds of European-market EV around. Audi does its best to defeat Newton, employing rear-axle steering, an Audi Sport setting for the rear differential, and E-Quattro all-wheel drive that can power the car in rear-drive-only mode. But all that mass translates into a lot of inertia, so anticipating the road ahead is crucial. Our 2,290-kilogram (5,048-pound) test car can quickly take you where you don't want to go if you get overly ambitious. Especially since the E-Tron's braking is not what delighted us most. While the Audi RS E-Tron GT comes standard with tungsten carbide–treated brakes with 16.3-inch rotors and 10-piston calipers at the front (brakes that were introduced at Porsche some time ago), our standard Quattro version had 14.1-inch steel brake discs and six-piston calipers. Those seemingly massive brakes feel slightly undersized for such a heavy car (for sporting use, at least). Not to be catastrophic, they were adequate for most situations. Another grievance, inherent in virtually all electric cars, is the transition from regenerative braking to friction braking. The "conventional" braking system is only called upon beyond a deceleration of more than 0.39 g. This is a very complex operation, so as a result, little happens at the beginning of the pedal stroke until hydraulic braking comes into action and suddenly grips the discs. At first, it's very surprising behavior, and the lack of progressiveness hinders dynamic driving. Counting Pennies Pricing for the US-market 2022 Audi E-Tron GT hasn't been completely sussed out just yet, but we know that the base Quattro will start at $99,900 plus $1,095 for destination. The France-spec car we drove was very well equipped, with a 100,500-euro starting price bolstered by a 5,400-euro Dynamic package (Quattro differential on the rear axle, steerable rear wheels, and adaptive air suspension) and 4,600-euro carbon fiber roof – which might not be essential, since the standard E-Tron GT's center of gravity is already lower than that of the R8 supercar. Brake-wise, those aforementioned tungsten-coated discs cost an additional 4,150 euros, and they're much more suitable for dynamic use. And if steel really doesn't suit you, Audi still offers ceramic brakes as an option at 10,500 euros, but they make more sense on the high-performance RS E-Tron GT than on the less aggressive Quattro model. If you really want maximum Audi EV performance, you'll have to get in line for that RS model. With a starting price of $139,900 in the US, the RS E-Tron GT gets 590 hp (or 637 hp on overboost) and 612 lb-ft, good for a 60-mph sprint of 3.1 seconds and a top speed of 155 mph. The RS also comes standard with a carbon fiber roof, rear-axle steering, and the sport differential, making it an easier sell to those who might option the standard Quattro with those features. The E-Tron GT is built at Audi's Böllinger Höfe plant in Neckarsulm, Germany – the same facility as the R8. The first customer deliveries of the Audi EV, including the higher-performance RS version, will commence this summer in the US. Specific option pricing and packaging will be revealed closer to that nebulous on-sale date, but Audi will offer the E-Tron in $99,900 Premium Plus and $107,100 Prestige forms, with the RS E-Tron sold in a single top-dog trim level. Those prices compare favorably to the Porsche EVs: the $79,900 Taycan rear-drive, $103,800 Taycan 4S, $109,370 Taycan 4S with Performance Battery Plus, $150,900 Taycan Turbo, and $185,000 Taycan Turbo S.
