Audi has announced the A6 Ultra which produces more power, emits less CO2 and achieves greater MPG.
The new A6 ultra models are powered by a highly efficient EU6 emission-standard four-cylinder 2.0 TDI 190PS engine, and are available with a choice of six-speed manual or seven-speed S tronic transmission which will arrive later in the year. The new engine directly replaces the outgoing 2.0 TDI 177PS unit in both Saloon and Avant models, and offers a drop in CO2 from 132g/km to 114g/km and a rise in combined MPG from 47.1 to 55.4 mpg.
Every car i've owned has been a hatchback. Presented with a choice of hatchback versus saloon i'm the type of person that would always choose a hatchback over a saloon. It's not about size either, i'd pick a Golf over a Passat and an A3 over an A4..... until today when i discovered that an A3 Saloon will be coming the the UK this autumn. Apparently the A3 saloon will be officially launched at the Shanghai motor how next month but below are pictures taken from an American photoshoot.
BMW has added a new model to the BMW 3-series line-up. The new 3 series GT follows the same principle of the larger 5-series GT. It is longer, wider and taller than the 3-series Touring on which it is based. BMW claims the 3-series GT has the dynamics of the 3-series saloon with the practicality of the 3-series Touring and the looks of a coupé. The five-seat 3-series GT will be offered with five engines from launch, including a 302bhp 335i range-topper, and the likely best-seller, the 320d. It is set to go on sale in the UK in late spring, priced at around £1500 more than an equivalent 3-series Touring model.
