Hands-on look at the new 2014 Audi TT

Audi TT tech

The Audi TT has always been fun to drive. Now, there’s even more to write home about.

Now in its third generation, Audi is still reinventing the wheel. Perhaps more exciting is that the new TT has some shiny new gadgets to play with.

The most notable improvement is the incorporation of everything a driver could ever need into one single glistening LCD panel. Sat nav, ride controls, oddometer, you name it — you can find it here.

The 1440 x 540 display and 12.3-inch panel is most certainly a thing of beauty. It’s the kind of gadget you might expect in the new Lamborghini Huracan, but at a TT price. Nice.

Audi Overtakes BMW in Global Luxury Car Sales

audi tts

Did you know that Audi has now overtaken BMW in terms of luxury car sales?

The German car manufacturing giants have always been fiercely competitive, however BMW have always had the edge. Until now.

Audi sold 242,400 vehicles last month – 383 more than BMW – according to data from the Saxony-based auto outfit.

BMW, who has been number one for the last nine years in a row, were 429 cars ahead this time last year.

If you’re now in two minds as to whether to buy a car from Audi or BMW, the ones to watch at the minute from the big boys is the new Audi A3 and hybrid BMW i8.

Hands off my RS4!

Did you know that the Audi RS4 is the most stolen Audi in the UK? You couldn’t blame burglars for at least trying…

According to MSN UK, the gorgeous RS4 (seen below) was the joint fourth most stolen car in the UK in 2012. It shares the not so sought-after accolade with the BMW 3 Series.

Audi’s super-saloon appears for the first time in the list, which also features the BMW M3 (3rd) , Range Rover (Vogue and Sport) (2nd) and topping the charts, the BMW X5.

In the US, the Audi doesn’t fare too well either, with reports the Audi S8 and Toyota Camry stand out on NHTSA’s most stolen cars list.

The RS4 has a roaring 4.2-litre V8 engine under the hood. That, coupled with four-wheel drive makes the German powerhouse almost uncatchable the road. Some might say, the ultimate getaway car.

A new 450hp estate model now graces our roads. So if you’re lucky enough to still have yours, you might consider going to sell your car to trusted car buyers now, before you risk losing it to a thief!
