The auto industry has been creating vehicles that surprise us more and more as the years go by. In the time of increased concern for climate change and Mother Nature, Kia Motors prides itself on providing fuel efficient and environmentally friendly models to the market.
Ever since brands like BMW experimented with the X6 at the dawn of the 21st century, luxury automakers are making a vehicle for every niche market. Audi, a brand that has thrived on the rally circuit, with its Quattro engine, is also making a name for itself in a slightly new area. Being one of the first high-end brands to enter the luxury subcompact market, the Q3 is now in its second generation, with a bigger body and better proportions than the previous model.
Audi steadfastly sticks to its tried and true design language, starting with its octagonal grille, borrowed from the Q8, and two trapezoidal intakes. From a front view, it’s impossible to mistake it for any other brand, and this time, it’s on the aggressive side. There is also a strong character line which runs below the bonnet, and through to the trunk.
A new advertising slogan was introduced in 1971 that would define the Four-Ringed Germans destiny in life. ‘Vorsprung durch Technik’, coined to celebrate the launch of a new flagship model – The Audi 80. at its launch in 1972, the ’80’ displayed new technologies such as OHC ( Cam) engines and self-stabilizing steering. By the time production of the first generation ended production, more than a million cars had been built. The brand had changes in 1974 which appointed Ferdinand Piech, initially as the Head of Technical Development. This period witnessed Audi raising its brand positioning with the creation of the 5 Cylinder engine (1976), mainstream turbocharging (1979), and the Quattro four wheel drive system.
