The Amarok Means Business

October 21, 2021 / 0 Comments / 1526 / ATL News, Auto Reviews, Volkswagen

With the massive success of the VW Beetle, which was a quirky designed vehicle that was intended to be reliable and economical, you would think the company would do more experimental vehicles like this. Instead, they played it safe over the years, with winning models like the Golf, Polo and Passat.

It wasn’t until 2010, when VW decided to shake up the auto world once more by launching their first commercial pickup, the Amarok. Built in a traditional sense with a body on frame, it offered a single and double cab, which drew interest from all over.

The Audi Q2 is the smallest of the Q series of sport utility vehicles sold locally by ATL Automotive. In that way, it exudes that younger brother syndrome to its older and more established siblings up the model range. While they tow the company line, the Q2 is able to slip in a bit of its own personality, and be a more fun take on the SUV formula.

Audi Q3 revamps with sharper designs

March 23, 2021 / 0 Comments / 2056 / ATL News, Audi, Auto Reviews

The subcompact SUVs are all the craze these days, because of their ride height and storage capacity, plus, they are usually built on a car’s chassis. This greatly improves the ride comfort and manoeuvrability, while it gives them the ability to tackle challenging road conditions. This concept has been a trend from the mid ’90s, with Toyota RAV4 and Honda CR-V being some of the frontrunners.

It seemed as though luxury automakers were the last to catch on to the trend, as most waited until the late 2000s to manufacture these body types. In 2011, Audi entered the market with their luxury crossover, the Q3, with a dynamic 1.4L engine that promised to add power while saving gas.

Audi e-tron GT Quattro: An Audi Like No Other

March 4, 2021 / 1 Comments / 1960 / ATL News, Audi, Environment, New Models

ON February 9, Audi unveiled its future in the form of an all-new full-electric high-performance four-door sports coupé, the e-tron GT quattro. The new vehicle sparkles with the shine of the company’s now famous tagline Vorsprung Durch Technik, or as translated into English, ‘Progress through technology’.

There is plenty of significant technology on display in the e-tron GT staring with its ultimate nod to the future, the transition to battery electric propulsion. Quattro means all-wheel drive for Audi and the system has also evolved for electrification. Rather than the traditional methods of routing engine power to all four wheels via mechanical transfer cases and differentials, the e-tron GT quattro drives all its wheels with electric all-wheel drive. Two electric motors sit at each axle, one in front, the other in rear. They combine to give the vehicle 476 horsepower and 464.7 lb/ft of torque. In boost mode torque rises to 472 lb/ft and horsepower to 530 for a maximum of 2.5 seconds. This sends the e-tron GT Quattro to 100 km/h in 4.1 seconds and on to a top speed of 245 km/h.
