Audi’s Semi Autonomous Car – 2017 Audi Q7 Release Date, Specs & Info

Touted as one of the most appealing three-row crossover SUV, the 2017 Audi Q7 redesigns are arguably meant to offer the new vehicle the much-needed revitalizations needed to survive in this hotly contested segment. It returns with an even improved formula in addition to its existing resume that is characterized by abundance of performance, comfort, and technology amenities. The Audi Q7 release date should be expected sometime in the second half of 2017.

Quick Overview

Additional features include cutting-edge technology, numerous advanced safety features, and a strong performance. The latest Audi Q7 redesign is the most significant ever since it debuted in the segment some nine years ago. That’s a long time to wait for a major overhaul and that alone made the previous model dated by conventional methods.

Nice Maneuverability

The grille is imposing and angular shaped, and is one of the changes that consciously manifest on its exterior. The 2017 Audi Q7 interior, on the other hand, is as elegant as ever and picks up some design cues from the often understated A8 sedan. Although the biggest SUV for the German marque, it offers hustle-free maneuverability around town, turns around corners nimbly, and offers an impressive exterior visibility.

Semi Autonomous Driving?

One notable aspect about the Audi Q7 that qualifies as the ‘news extraordinaire’ is perhaps the ability to drive itself. It has the capability to seamlessly integrate data compiled from the cameras and sensors placed on vital areas of the car, which then is collated and transmitted to the various systems of the vehicle.

Besides the evolution toward full autonomy, its interior comes laden with plenty of features and technologies for the money. The drive quality is exceptional and has never been this good. Even the hardcore early adopters should be impressed with how easy it is to drive the Q7, not to mention the feature galore available.

One Flaw

Serious nitpicking has only yielded one downside: modest cargo volume. Rivals nipping its heels include the BMW X5, Volvo XC90, Acura MDX, and the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class. We’re however confident you’ll find the admirable blend of technology, performance, and luxury offered by the 2017 Audi Q7. Vs. XC90, we’d be hard-pressed to choose sides as the Volvo has its solid strengths, too, such as a sharp looking style, an available hybrid model, lots of standard and safety features, and a spacious third-row seating.

Audi Q7 Review of Trims

Three trims are available for the 2017 Audi Q7: Prestige, Premium, and Premium Plus.

2017 Audi Q7 Interior Accessories & Exterior Pictures

Back To 70’s – 2017 Audi A7 Release Date and Specs

There’s much that the new 2017 Audi A7 offers apart from the exceptional looks. It comes with stunning looks, plenty of luxurious amenities, a top-shelf design, a powerful V8 engine, ample interior space, and an impressive cargo space with an easy-to-stow luggage compartment. Unlike the previous model that was available in a lone trim level, the new model adds a second one resulting in a minor reshuffling of features and technologies. Its release date should be expected sometime in early 2017.

Fighting The Prejudice

No effort has been spared by Audi in revising the 2017 Audi A7. It is one of the few cars in the automotive industry that has broken the traditional notion that luxury cars should definitely be sedans. Beyond the style, the new A7 also makes a strong statement with its performance and luxurious accommodations.

For starters, the new model was introduced six years ago as a rival to the Mercedes-Benz CLS. It became the first Audi model to feature a lift-back design since the ‘70s. It garnered quite a substantial following thanks to its comprehensive engine lineup and appealing design. This popularity even led BMW to launch its own 6 Series Gran Coupe. First forward to 2017, and Audi is up in arms with new technologies and features for the A7 in order to make it competent in its class.

Changed Interior And Old Exterior

Expect extra interior features, new wheels, and a new exterior paint. The style remains a carryover and which we have no qualms with given the admiration it still gets from its aficionados. Alternatives available in the market include the 2017 BMW 6 Series, 2017 Porsche Panamera, and the 2017 Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class. While there’s no doubt the rivals here are no-brainer in terms of their technologies, equipment, luxury amenities, and performance, the Audi A7 2017 is hard to resist.

Expected Price And A Release Date For The 2017 Audi A7

When it comes to the price of the new A7, buyers should expect to pay a premium of $68,800 for the Audi A7 3.0T Premium Plus, and $76,550 for the Audi A7 3.0T Competition Prestige model. Leasing is an option. As regards the release date, sources in the know say an early-2017 is most likely given the existing circumstances.

2017 Audi A7 Exterior Pictures

As already mentioned, the new 2017 Audi A7 carries over unchanged over the previous model. But even so, three new colors, and new alloy wheels have been added.

The 2017 Audi A7 Sportback continues to impress even in the absence of new design change. This is of course due to the facelift it got back in 2014 which brought about a sportier stance, and more angular elements.

2017 Audi A7 Interior Review

Opting for the Audi RS7 Performance model takes the performance even higher at 605 hp. A Quattro all-wheel drive system is available depending on the model. An eight-speed Tiptronic or a seven-speed S Tronic transmission is available as well.

Safety

When it comes to the safety of the 2017 Audi A7, rumor has it that the model is poised to get a perfect score of five out five star rating for overall safety protection thanks to features such as front passenger detection, Sideguard head curtain airbags, knee airbags, front thorax side airbags, and dual-stage airbags.

Drives Like A Jet – New 2017 Audi R8 Review

The newest 2017 Audi R8 gains a bit more power and modern cockpit equipment whilst still retaining its Hollywood style and easy-t-drive demeanor. Its highpoints include an innovative infotainment interface, awesome acceleration and handling, and an exquisite trimmed cabin. The Audi R8 release date should be expected sometime before this fall as a 2017 year model.

Brief Review

While the R8 boasts of a full redesign, it isn’t the only exotic sports car to do so. There’re plenty of other vehicles that have also received thorough refreshments and promise a bruising battle in their categories. But even so, Audi has offered the redesigned R8 plenty of features that undeniably make an appealing choice for anyone shopping in the segment.

Better Performance, AWD, v8

Its repertoire now includes contemporary technology, impressive curb appeal, and an even better performance relative to the outgoing model. Performance wise, the new R8 comes with a new, sophisticated all-wheel drive system borrowed from the Lamborghini Huracan. A distinctive exposed-gate manual transmission, and a sultry base V8 engine. These and other upgrades made to its performance cadre make it a compelling choice for anyone looking for power and distinction.

Young Inside

Granted, the first generation’s cabin features and a layout had become dated in the past couple of years. For 2017 R8, however, Audi has provided the new model with cutting-edge technologies and design that are meant to rejuvenate its appeal. The high-resolution 12.3” touchscreen display, for instance, the company’s “Virtual Cockpit” make the R8 a standout in its class. Another notable feature is the new steering wheel that comes fitted with driving mode and ignition buttons featuring Ferrari designs.

Alternatives Are…

Ostensibly, those shopping in this segment have no shortage of rivals, and we find the tantalizing options before you envious. R8 rivals include Chevrolet Corvette Z06, Porsche 911 Turbo, Jaguar F-Type SVR, and the Acura NSX.

2017 Audi R8 Trims

Two trims are offered for the new 2017 Audi R8: V10 and V10 Plus. Both the 2017 Audi R8 e-tron and Spyder are substantively covered on their own reviews. Audi hasn’t offered any indications about an R8 convertible option yet.

2017 Audi R8 Review of Exterior & Interior Changes

Accessories offered on the R8 V10 include a rearview auto-dimming mirror, LED engine-compartment lighting, nineteen-inch wheels, eighteen-way power seats, Audi’s MMI interface, heated and power-folding side mirrors, LED taillights and headlights, automatic dual-zone climate control, a 12.3” Virtual Cockpit infotainment and instrument display, auxiliary audio jack, a rearview camera, a synthetic suede headliner, a manually-operated telescopic-and-tilt steering wheel, keyless entry and ignition, front and rear parking sensors, adaptive suspension dampers, automatic high-beam control, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, dual USB ports, a navigation system, and a thirteen-speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system.

Virtual Cockpit

The 2017 Audi R8 Interior comes with fine interior materials and an ergonomic control layout relative to other exotics. Unlike the previous model that was marred by anachronisms on its MMI interface, the new model doesn’t take anything to chance and employs the Virtual Cockpit instrument cluster that displays all infotainment and driving functions on the 12.3” touchscreen interface.

Good Comfortable Seats And a Bad Small Cargo Area

The seats offer lots of comfort during tours and are supportive even for spirited driving. Nitpicking has only yielded two main concerns: a pitiful cargo volume and lack of advanced safety features. Otherwise, the new 2017 Audi R8 should be in every exotic sports car lover’s dreams. More features should be expected on its release date.

Large Number Of Horses For The Engine Of The 2017 Audi R8

Motivating the new 2017 Audi R8 is a 5.2L V10 engine placed in a transparent engine cover behind the seats. The mill when fitted on the V10 model cranks out a whopping 540 horsepower and 398 lbs. ft. of torque, and 413 pounds-ft. of torque and 610 hp in the V10 Plus.

Vehicle For Your Personality?

Although the honeymoon’s far from over, Audi will now be marking its third year of production for its sedan and convertible models. Among the very many attributes the Audi A3 possesses, some of the most endearing ones include its rock-bottom pricing and modest dimensions.

It has, unlike many entry-level luxury sedans, able to strike a formidable chord with its consumers thanks to its sense of style, performance, and overall quality. This isn’t the kind of vehicle that you slam when choosing it, it is one that is picked because it fits perfectly into your lifestyle.

Not Made For Cargo?

For a car its size, one should expect a limited cargo and passenger space, and you’ll be very disappointed if you have loads of cargo and passenger to haul around. The coupe’s trunk and backseat are largely underwhelming, and nothing better can be said about the convertible either.

But if you can manage to live with such idiosyncrasies, you’ll find nothing else worth gripping about. The A3 has much to offer, even in its basic form. It offers a sharp handling, a peppier acceleration, a well-appointed cabin, and a strong fuel economy ratings.

Possible Alternatives?

In overall, the new 2017 Audi A3 is for people whose lifestyle call for a genuine luxury car in a tidy little package. But if passenger and cargo space are atop your priorities, the following rivals would suffice. They include the Lexus IS 250, the Acura ILX, the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class sedan, and the BMW 2 Series.

A Redesign Of A Masterpiece 2017 Audi A5 Review

The new 2017 Audi A5 is now the second-generation mid-size model from the Ingolstadt-based automaker that gains high-tech gadgetry, and a new, honed look. Available in both Coupe and Convertible body styles, the Audi A5 sports an elegant and athletic stylish design inside and out. Just like the model it replaces, the new model comes with sophisticated aerodynamics. The review below also covers release date rumors, so read on to get the news.

2017 Audi A5 convertible, side view, white color, alloy wheels

Although the new Audi A5 2017 has some goodies to offer, credible reports allege that Audi is already working on an all-new model that will most likely grace the luxury coupe segment in the 2018 year model. But while you contemplate on that, the 2017 A5 has stood the test of time to become one of the most revered car in its class. While there’s no denying the fact that the segment offers fresher and newer alternatives, Audi has managed to keep things rolling for the A5 through perennial refreshments and stand-out features such as an elegant interior, a standard all-wheel drive system, and a classic, sleek styling.

Unnecessary Update?

Why would Audi bother to refresh a design masterpiece? Well, in case you didn’t know, Audi engineers and designers themselves have been pondering this question for a couple of years now. What remains unquestioned however is the impressive results that have always emanated from such refreshments. With every new model comes irrefutable distinction.

With nine years in production, and the last year of the current generation, Audi aims to make a profound testament in terms of design and performance to christen the illustrious run it has had in the competitive segment. The impeccable performance and comfort, and the timeless styling inside and out continue to make the Audi A5 a solid choice among luxury coupes and cabriolets.

Some Of The Flaws

Inasmuch as the 2017 Audi A5 seems an unavoidable pick, there’re are certain foibles that would-be customers should be wary of. Signs of age are notable in terms of the technologies offered. For starters, upscale technologies are conspicuously missing in action. Such technologies include frontal collision mitigation, lane-keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, and a blind-spot monitor. The performance is also a bit so-so in comparison to the available competition.

Talking of competition, we highly recommend you sample one of these – Mercedes-Benz C-Class, Lexus IS, and BMW 4 Series.

What Is The Release Date For The 2017 Audi A5?

Those looking forward to owning the Audi A5 should take note of the following: the A5 Sport Coupe Quattro with a 6-speed manual goes for sale for an MSRP starting from $41,200 while the A5 Sport Coupe with an eight-speed will fetch around $42,200. The A5 Cabriolet Sport price starts from $49,990, and the performance-oriented S5 Cabriolet from $62,050. All the MSRP pricing aforementioned is inclusive of the shipping fee. Leasing is also available.

Its release date should be expected sometime in the first half of 2017.

2017 Audi A5 Exterior Looks Like…

As is evident from the pictures, the new model returns with dramatic shapes and athletically taut surfaces. As a result, the new Audi A5 2017 exhibits perfectly balanced proportions, and sporty designs.

Some of the exterior features include 18-inch alloy wheels, headlight washers, automatic xenon headlights, a sunroof, heated mirrors, a rear spoiler, and LED running lights.

2017 Audi A5 Interior Looks Like…

The interior is a design a masterpiece that has managed to weather the test of time thanks to its excellent materials and elegant simplicity. However, the A5 loses some marks in terms of lacking latest technologies and features. For one, there’re no USB ports. The cockpit layout is mediocre, and the infotainment system a bit flimsy relative to its peers.

Safety technologies are yet to be announced. Buyers shouldn’t however be upbeat on getting upscale ones, as the A5 wouldn’t be getting any at least according to rumors. The lack of any facelifts to its technologies is in fact one of the reasons that better heightens its age issues. Nevertheless, we are hopeful the new model will earn top marks for its crash impact safety protection from both NHTSA and IIHS.

Short Review

In the entry-level luxury sedan segment, the A4 is considered as the elder statesman, as it shares the same platform with the existing generation model which debuted seven years ago. Without a doubt, a closer observation of the A4 specs sheet will hint to you that time has taken a toll on it. For instance, unlike most of its stablemates, the new model doesn’t offer a diesel powerplant which is thriftier at the pump.

Quiet And Comfortable

Gratefully, there are plenty of appealing features and technologies available on the A4 that has always been tantamount to any A4 that has ever debuted on the market. Therefore, just as before, the ride quality is compliant, quiet, and comfortable. Throw in the all-wheel drive system and you’ve got yourself an excellent vehicle that not only offers additional grip whilst on the move but is also downright athletic.

Better Than The Alternatives?

There is no doubt that despite its age, the A4 is still a formidable force in its class and even fresher alternatives will have to brace up for a bruising battle. Usual rivals in this segment include Lexus IS 200t, BMW 3 Series, Cadillac ATS, and Acura TLX. The Infiniti Q50 is yet another prime suspect.

Search For An Affordable New Crossover – 2017 Audi Q3 Review

The new 2017 Audi Q3 is arguably the most affordable crossover in Audi’s lineup. And although it has only been available to Audi’s North American lineup, the Q3 has been on sale in Europe for five years now. Several changes are in store for shoppers, with the most notable one being the introduction of a new entry-level trim level referred to as Premium. Its release date has been set for the spring of 2017.

Short Review

For starters, the Audi Q3 is roughly the same size as the BMW X1, with dimensions that stretch 175 inches long and 62.6 inches wide. The exterior and interior facets are instantly recognizable as those of Audi. Up front, the hexagonal radiator grille, and angular xenon headlights are traditional Audi elements. The interior boasts a driver-centered center stack, and a clean and simple dashboard.

Best Fuel Economy In Its Class

Motivation comes from a 200 horsepower, 2.0L TFSI four-cylinder engine. The mill comes paired to a six-speed Tiptronic automatic transmission system that sends the power generated to either the FWD or the all-wheel drive system. With the famed Quattro, expect the crossover to do 0-60 mph run in just 8.2 seconds, and 7.8 seconds with the FWD. fuel economy ratings are among the best in its class, with the FWD versions checking in at 23 mpg combined, and 28 mpg with the all-wheel drive models.

Nice Equipment But Outdated?

Some of the standard features available for the 2017 Audi Q3 include a panoramic sunroof, daytime running lights, LED taillights, automatic headlights and wipers, keyless ignition and entry, leather upholstery, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a 10-speaker sound system, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, a tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel, and front and rear parking sensors.

But even with added features and technologies, the 2017 Q3 is hardly the freshest face in this segment. Most of the technologies we actually see are outdated in conventional terms. Buyers looking for something contemporary and fresh in the segment should properly check out the 2017 BMW X1. It has a superior performance, cutting-edge technology, better fuel economy, and a larger cabin. The 2016 Lexus NX 200t pulls ahead of the Q3 in terms of quicker acceleration, and premium technologies but is neck-and-neck in terms of fuel-efficiency and space. Last, but certainly not the least is the 2016 Mini Countryman. The Countryman is engaging to drive, highly customizable, and pleasantly frugal.

Other competitors include Land Rover Range Rover Evoque, and Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class.

What Are The Release Date And Price For The New 2017 Audi Q3?

Leasing is an option as well.

Strong And Confident Exterior of The New Audi Q3

As seen from the images, the new Q3 has a strong and confident road stance. It gains a sporty and expressive look thanks to the sharply sloped D-pillars and coupe-like roofline. The body surfaces are aerodynamically contoured and feature the latest Audi design language.

Some of the exterior features to expect include 18-inch wheels, LED running lights and taillights, a panoramic sunroof, xenon headlights, roof rails, LED headlights, 19-inch wheels (Q3 Prestige), tailgate sill plates, and “S Line” styling cues.

Quality is one thing that the Q3’s cabin doesn’t skimp on. As any other modern Audi, the new model employs premium design principles and materials. The result is a sophisticated, stylish and modern interior hardly matched by any other vehicle in its class. Climate controls are fairly straightforward and driver-centric.

Some of the standard accessories available include a rearview camera, Bluetooth phone and audio controls, satellite radio, a seven-inch display, Audi’s MMI control system, a 60/40-split-folding rear seat, dual-zone automatic climate control, keyless entry and ignition, and a leather upholstery.

Minor Updates For The New 2017 Audi Q5

The new 2017 Audi Q5 stands out among the rest of the compact luxury SUVs with its thrilling engines, handsome styling, and elegant cabin. It’s a special SUV in many ways depending on one’s previous experiences especially those who’ve been shopping in this class of compact SUVs. It’s small on dimensions but big on luxury and comfort. Additionally, its interior reeks of top-notch craftsmanship, has more standard features than most of its rivals, and its driving character is refined. Its release date is set for early 2017.

Well Made Affordable Vehicle?

For 2017, new features include standard nineteen-inch wheels for the 2.0T Premium Plus models, and an adaptive cruise control feature for the 3.0T Prestige model. Away from that, the Audi Q5 2017 is generally an updated vehicle that offers an immense wealth of features and technologies at a reasonable price. Unlike driving the humdrum compact SUVs available in the segment in their plenty, the Audi Q5 soldiers on with a well-crafted cabin, classic styling, and ample features for the money.

Getting Old?

Sure, the Audi Q5 has been around for quite some time and critics can be quick to add that it its getting up a bit up in age in terms of interior appointments and design. While some arguments might hold water, the Audi Q5 is still an amazing vehicle especially for people not looking for latest controls and technologies. Even so, the new vehicle comes with updated features such as a fourteen-speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system, a navigation system, keyless push-button and adaptive cruise control. Again, for those who don’t find fiddling with the latest gizmos and gadgets their thing, it comes with a panoramic sunroof.

Rivals?

We still think the new Audi Q5 has plenty left in the tank despite having a strong rival front that includes the Aura RDX, Mercedes-Benz GMC-Class, Lexus NX 200t, Jaguar F-Pace, and the BMW X3.

What Is The Price Of The New Audi Q3 And When Is The Release Date?

As mentioned, the Audi Q5 release date should be expected sometime in early 2017, at least according to pundit reports. Audi has already offered its pricing structure, with the base model stripped off of all premium accessories expected to cost an MSRP starting from $40,900. Leasing is available.

The exterior hasn’t received substantial changes in comparison to other facets such as the interior. However, it is now more refined and features some of the latest features in lighting technology, for instance. It features xenon headlights, LED taillights and running lights, eighteen-inch wheels, automatic wipers, aluminum roof rails, a panoramic sunroof, a power liftgate, 19-inch wheels (2.0T Premium Plus), auto-dimming rearview mirror, aluminum door sills, power liftgate, and headlight washers.

2017 Audi Q5 Interior Updated?

When we come to its interior, the cabin design remains unchanged over the previous model. However, the cabin refinement has been reworked in order to conceal its age – or so we think. Accessories available, of course depending on the trim level, include the MMI interface, a tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel, a CD player, satellite and HD radio, a leather upholstery, a 10-speaker audio system, Bluetooth connectivity, driver power lumbar, a sliding and reclining rear seat, keyless entry and ignition, a rearview auto-dimming mirror, adaptive cruise control, a fourteen-speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system, rear door sunshade, a heated and cooled cup-holder, and Audi connect online services.

Three engines are offered for the 2017 Audi Q5. Default systems include the eight-speed automatic transmission system, and the all-wheel drive system. The 2.0T Premium and Premium Plus models come equipped with a 220-horsepower – generating turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder engine.
