Audi of America has just introduced 2 new models with the 2018 A5 and S5 Sportback models. This is a revitalized hatchback sedan trend started by cars like the Honda Crosstour and BMW X6. Audi enters this game with two new offerings based on its most popular sedan platform. In Audi fashion, both models are essential the same car with the S model offering a beefier engine and a sportier driving dynamic. The new A5 and S5 models will come standard with Quattro all-wheel drive with front a front to rear ratio of 40:60.
The A5 sport back will be powered by a 2.0L Turbo engine mated to a 7 speed dual clutch automatic to create 252 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. Audi estimates this power plant to push the A5 to 60 mph in 5.7 seconds. The S5 will come with a turbo 3.0L V6 the puts out 354 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque. Audi estimates a 0-60 time of 4.5 seconds for the S5 thanks to a new 8 speed automatic. One thing to note is that the S5 will only come with an automatic while the A5 will still offer a manual transmission option.
Audi is hoping to appeal to the luxury sedan buyer that wants a little more utility. While this segment of car is still very unique and sometimes even a little odd; Audis take on a hatch back sedan looks very attractive. This might just be the best looking 4 door sedan hatchback out there. Buyers can expect to see the A5 and S5 hit dealer lots in spring of 2017 as 2018 models.
As most of us sat around watching the blow out which was the super bowl this year, a lot of us like it for the commercials to. I thought a lot of the commercials this year were kind of week, the car commercials were actually some of the more fun and interesting to watch. I thought it would be fun to recap and go over some of my favorite commercials from this years super bowl.
Our first commercial is for the Audi A3, Audi goes on to show us what horrors can be conceived with compromise. Introducing to you the Doberhuahua!
Bruce Willis would like you give all your friends and family a big hug from Honda. Honda is showing you how much safety means to them with a hug!
Ford like double everything! To show their love for double the fuel economy of their new Ford Fusion they shot two commercials back to back with Rob Riggle and James Franco err Rob Franco or James Riggle well just watch and see what double means to ford!
Would you take the Blue key or the Red key? Morpheus is back from the Matrix to show us about luxury with the all new Kia K900. Who knew he could sing so well?
Hyundai’s automatic braking commercial was something I enjoyed. It shows how dad was always keeping you safe and saving the day, well Hyundai employed that same feeling in their new Genesis with automatic braking.
Finally we have a commercial to punch you right in the feelings department! This is Chevrolet’s commercial for World Cancer Day and celebrating the survivors and supporting those with cancer a great road to recovery!
These are the car commercials that I enjoyed during this years Super Bowl. Of course there were tons of other commercials to watch, some were really good but overall I feel like they were a little weak. I would love to know what were your favorites! Please post them in the comments section so we can see what commercials you really enjoyed!
