WR TV: 2016 Audi A6 3.0T Quattro

This week we’re at the helm of Audi’s mid-sized sports sedan, the A6. This particular model gets a zestier power train than the manual gearbox-equipped A5 coupe we recently tested, here powered by a supercharged 3.0-liter V6 making 333 horsepower and 325 pound-feet of torque, rather than the 220 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque generated by the turbocharged 2.0-liter four cylinder that powered the A5.

WR TV: 2014 Jaguar XF V6 Supercharged AWD

This week we’re taking a look at Jaguar’s mid-sized all wheel drive sports sedan. The XF has stiff competition in the segment from the likes of the BMW 5-Series, the Audi A6, and Mercedes Benz E-Class, but this cat’s claws might just be sharp enough to steal some sales from the established leaders.

Update: 2013 Jaguar XF 2.0T

Jaguar’s XF is a dark horse. In a segment where deciding on a car generally means deciding which color of gray your Audi, BMW, Mercedes-Benz will be, the XF is quietly confident sitting in the background. It’s almost certainly the best looking car in its segment, and its interior is a delightful departure from the black, aluminum, and modernist interiors of the competition. The material choices are warm and inviting, and most everything feels good to the touch.

LA 2012: Auto Show Wrap-Up

With press days for the LA Auto Show nothing more than a memory, it’s time to compile everything that debuted leading up to and during this year’s show. It was a decidedly green show this year (not that uncommon for the LAAS), with more than a few electric vehicles. Ford’s Fusion range was crowned Green Car Of The Year, which isn’t hugely surprising if you’ve read our reviews.

LA Preview: Audi’s Diesel-Palooza

Check out our comments during our recent drive of the 2012 Jeep Wrangler. There’s a commenter named WannabuyaDiesel. He’s a rather strong advocate of a diesel-powered Jeep. While we can’t deliver the news that he so desperately wants to hear, we can tell you about four all-new diesel models that will be coming to the United States quite soon.

Driven: 2013 Volvo S80 T6 AWD

We enjoyed our rather short drive experience in the big Volvo, though far more when we were crushing highway miles than on the few occasions that we dove into the smaller, curvier Utah roads. That’s not because the S80 felt unstable, or lacked for grip on tight corners, but rather because the car offered too detached a ride profile to really enjoy the technical bits. Steering effort was one-finger light, and quick turn-in required quite a bit more lock be applied than we’d have liked. Further, Volvo has clearly opted for ride comfort over mid-corner stiffness, or chassis feedback, as the S80 seemed to hover on a cushion of air whist we meandered through hill and dale.

Comfort/Involvement Index: 2013 Lexus GS350 F-Sport

Sportified GS isn’t a huge improvement on the standard model, but that’s mainly because the regular GS350 is so good. Feels more confident and stable in the bends, and somewhat more talkative.

Comparison Test: 2012 Audi A6 3.0 Quattro vs. 2013 Lexus GS350 F-Sport

Take a good long look at the photos accompanying this article. Go ahead, these words will still be here when you get back.

These are extraordinary sedans. You can see it.

Driven: 2012 Audi A6

What Audi has done with the new A6 is take a car that was always highly competent in a highly competitive class, and made every little thing markedly better with added technology, better looks, and excellent driving dynamics. Vorsprung durch Technik indeed.

Winding Road Video: 2012 Audi A6 – Quick Drive

Today Winding Road brings you the sights, sounds, and shocking acceleration of the 2012 Audi A6 3.0 TFSI Quattro. A quick note: the “strobe” effect you see from the A6’s LED lights is a artifact of a slight camera miscalculation on our part, and not something that’s visible in the real world. That said, we do think Audi could do well with some kind of “disco” lighting package.

Driven: 2012 Audi A6 3.0 TSFI Quattro

While the outgoing C6-generation Audi A6 made a significant splash at its start of sales in 2004, winning World Car Of The Year honors, the somewhat featureless exterior eventually blended into the woodwork. Worse, the car never really won any hardcore dynamics comparisons, not even in the limited-run RS6 treatments. All the same, that A6 was the best-selling car in that lucrative premium segment worldwide in 2007, 2008, and 2009.
