Last year marked the end of a seven-year sales streak for the automotive industry, as sales dropped for the first time since 2010 and revealed another major trend that will scare enthusiasts – consumers are serious about choosing crossovers and SUVs over everything else.

USA Today gathered the top five best-selling new vehicles from 2017 and none of them were cars.

The Ford F-150 topped the list with the automaker selling a total of 896,764 units. That number is up 9.3 percent from last year and helped the pickup truck retain its nameplate of being the best-selling vehicle in the United States.

The Toyota RAV4 came in second place with Toyota managing to shift a total of 407,594 units of the crossover last year. Toyota managed to sell more units of the RAV4 than the Camry sedan, which was the second-best-selling sedan of 2017.

The Nissan Rogue trailed behind the RAV4 in third place. Nissan sold a total of 403,465 units of the Rogue, which represents an increase of 22.3 percent over 2016. The Rogue also outpaced the Altima (total units sold for the sedan were 254,996), proving that people just aren’t interested in sedans anymore.

The Audi Q5, which retains its title as being the most-popular vehicle in Audi’s lineup, came in fourth place with a total of 57,640 units sold. A recent redesign helped the Q5 increase its popularity with sales increasing 16.3 percent from 2016.

As the report points out, there was some question about whether consumers would purchase a vehicle with an American badge that was built in China The answer, clearly, is yes. The Buick Envision, managed to come in fifth place with 41,040 units of the SUV being sold last year. The Envision was Buick’s third best-selling vehicle for 2017.

If you haven’t done so already, say goodbye to cars, hatchbacks, wagons, and anything else that isn’t a crossover, SUV, or pickup truck, because the wildfire has spread.

Posted by Brad Anderson in audi, Audi A4, Audi A5, Audi Q5, Recalls, Reports on 12 22nd, 2017


Audi is recalling 330,000 vehicles in Germany due to a potential electrical issue.

The company says that certain vehicles could have problems with electrical connections for the auxiliary heater, potentially causing fires. A handful of customers told Audi that they smelt burning in their cars, triggering an investigation from the firm.

Speaking to Reuters, an Audi spokesman said the recall affects A4, A5, A5 Cabriolet, and Q5 models built between April 2011 and May 2015.

There have been no reports of injuries, fires or other damage.

Audi Q5 Gets Long Wheelbase Version Exclusively For China 18
Nov
Posted by Cristian Gnaticov in audi, Audi Q5, china, new cars, Reports on 11 18th, 2017


Audi has made a long wheelbase variant of the Q5, and they’re going to offer it in China from the first quarter of next year.

The images reveal that the Q5L doesn’t appear to be any different than the rest of the family, except for the slightly longer roofline and rear fenders.

According to CarNewsChina, the premium compact SUV’s wheelbase has increased by 8.8cm, or 3.47in, which results in additional legroom on the rear bench, something very much appreciated by Chinese customers.

Powering the new Audi Q5 L will probably be the 2.0-liter turbocharged petrol unit, which comes in two outputs, with 190 and 250 horsepower, with the latter available with four-wheel drive.

The local media doesn’t have much to say about Audi’s latest model that’s aimed exclusively at the People’s Republic, except that its starting price will be roughly 380,000 yuan, which equals to $57,297 at today’s exchange rates.

This sum could land you a new Audi S5 Coupe in the United States, or a Q7, as these can be had from $54,600 and $49,900, respectively, on our side of the pond.

Audi SQ5 Gets The ABT Treatment, Comes With 419HP 16

Posted by Cristian Gnaticov in ABT, audi, Audi Q5, Audi SQ5, tuning on 11 16th, 2017


ABT Sportsline continue to upgrade various Audi models, and their latest work revolves around the SQ5.

The range-topping version of the premium compact SUV is already powerful, as it makes 354PS (349hp) and 500Nm (369lb-ft) of torque straight from the factory.

However, after paying a visit to ABT, this Audi SQ5 is good for 425PS (419hp) and 550Nm (406lb-ft) of torque. The output may seem familiar to some, and they’re not wrong, because it’s identical to the ABT-tuned Audi S5 Coupe and Cabriolet models, which share the same 3.0-liter TFSI engine.

Now, since the German tuning firm wasn’t satisfied with the way the stock Audi SQ5 looked, they fitted their example with a more aggressive body kit. This includes a new front bumper, tweaked grille, larger side skirts, and roof-mounted spoiler, in addition to some carbon fiber trim.

A lowered suspension is also part of the offerings, along with the 20-inch alloy wheels, and real exhaust tips that replace the fake ones that equip the stock vehicle, integrated into the flashy diffuser.
