640 × 268


 

These days, it's hard to have the edge in the ultra-competitive full-size flagship luxury sedan segment. Models like the Audi A8, Mercedes-Benz, BMW 7 Series, and others are in a near-constant state of progress to try to get out ahead of their competitors by an inch.

Until now.

The release of the all-new 2019 Audi A8 brought with it more than just stunning exterior changes. Its new technology, new performance, and a new way of seeing the automobile that's more than just state-of-the-art--it's state of the future.

The Audi e-tron Will Change the Game for All EVs





 

We know that Audi began taking reservations in September for their all-new all-electric e-tron crossover, and we now know that Audi will be stingy with its final production cars: at least early on, the only cars that will be shipped to dealerships are those that have already been placed on order.

So, if you want to be one of the first few dozen drivers in South Austin to pilot an all-new Audi e-tron, you'll want to get your reservation placed soon.

Audi Debuts New Signature Styling on the All-New 2019 Q8 SUV






 

The all-new 2019 Audi Q8 will sit comfortably at the top of the automaker's SUV range--but, not in terms of size.

The Audi Q8 will buck the trend of numerically-ascending body size, and will be closer in size to the Audi Q5 crossover than the Audi Q7 three-row SUV. The way that the Q8 places itself at the top of this food chain is entirely in relation to its premier luxury status.

Audi's newest SUV will be rolling out sometime this fall or winter season.

The Upcoming Audi e-tron Will Let You Pay Tolls Through the MMI System





 

If you frequent SH 45 or SH 130 in the South Austin area--or if you have to drive any long stretch of highway in greater Austin--you're probably familiar with the frustration of tolls. While a lot of toll roads in Texas are automated and electronic, removing the need to fumble for change or uncrumple dollar bills, it's still a hassle to deal with mail-in bills or electronic tag accounts.

But, there's a cool new future coming for Austin toll road drivers: Audi's all-new Integrated Toll Module (ITM) system, which will be introduced on the all-new 2019…

In September, Audi Will Accept Reservations for the All-New e-tron




 

In sunny San Francisco, in the middle of September, the world will get its first real, uninhibited, un-camouflaged view of the all-new Audi e-tron electric crossover--Audi's first-ever electric vehicle, and one of the few all-wheel drive EVs available on the market.

This stunning new SUV will compete directly with options like the Jaguar I-PACE and the Tesla Model X, and indirectly with more economical options like the Nissan LEAF, the BMW i3, the Chevy Volt, and the Prius family.

We think we can all agree, though, if the choice came down to a LEAF or an Audi--wouldn't you…

The All-New Audi Q8 is a Big Deal





 

Earlier this month, we looked at the design language of the all-new 2019 A7, and that's not the only big news of this year.

In fact, The Drive reports that Audi plans to release more than 20 models (across the entire Audi Group, that is) during 2018. That's a lot to take in--but, there's one news story that's going to stand head and shoulders above all the others:

The all-new, first-ever Audi Q8: a brand-new and coupe-styled luxury crossover that will compete with models like the BMW X6 Sports Activity Coupe, the Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe, and…

In Real News, Audi Has a Team of People Who Smell Cars



 

This isn't very new news, but it's still cool to know--and it's completely real:

Audi employs a team of professionals, called the Audi Odor Team, whose primary job it is to sniff the interior of an Audi car before it finds itself rolling off the official production line.

And while this may sound odd at best, it's not that strange when you consider that Audi is one of the few automakers, even among luxury brands, to truly be obsessed with the quality of their interiors.

It's no big secret that a Certified Pre-Owned Audi is a smart buy.

In fact, we talk about it a lot.

But when it's this easy to help local Austin drivers get into an Audi sedan, coupe, or SUV that they're going to love--at a price they can afford and with the confident backing of Audi USA--it's hard to keep quiet about it.

You can read our reviews of the Audi CPO program, as well as find links to complete benefits lists below--but if you want to know the true value of the certification program, you…
