Lampu belakang OLED digital Audi pada 2020 Audi Q5 sebenarnya ialah skrin TV

Audi’s digitalised OLED taillights in the 2020 Audi Q5 are basically TV screens

Lighting technology has always been Audi’s field of expertise. Who could forget the first LED DRLs that debuted in the “Starkmobile” Audi R8 back in 2007.

Why are Audi RS and BMW M ditching DCTs in favour of torque converters?

With the recent launch of the Audi RS6 and RS7, plus the BMW M3 and BMW M4 performance cars on our shores, it seems that there is a shift in direction towards the torque converter transmission (TCT) on core performance models. More importantly, manufacturers like Audi were - up until this point in time - massive proponents of the dual clutch transmission (DCT). Other performance-oriented brands have also followed suit. It wasn't that long ago when the dual-clutch transmission (DCT) was hailed as

Own a recon Audi? Here’s how you can get a warranty from Audi Malaysia

Parallel imported or recon (reconditioned) cars have been a part of (read: plagued) the Malaysian automotive industry for as long as the industry existed. Many have turned to these unauthorised and unofficial distributors for their significantly lower car prices – it’s not unusual to see grey import cars being 30 to 40% cheaper than officially imported cars. A small number of consumers turn to the grey market to secure a particular model variant, for example, an Audi RS6 Avant that’s not sold by

What makes a car a 3-door or a 5-door?

You’ve often heard the term 3-door and 5-door used when describing a car. For example, MINI literally names their famous hatch MINI 3-Door and MINI 5-Door. But why does MINI name their cars a 3-Door or a 5-Door when there are only either 2 doors and 4 doors for ingress and egress on the cars? Put simply, any door like structure which includes window on a car large enough for an adult to climb in and out of is considered a “door”. So, the terms 3-door and 5-door are reserved mostly for hatchbacks

The VW Polo started life as an Audi? Say what?

Audi did not start off as the luxury car brand that we know of today. Back in the 60s, before the Audi started competing with luxury brands like Mercedes-Benz and BMW, Audi was rolling out affordable cars like the small hatchback Audi 50. Which… Volkswagen later took and rebadged into the Volkswagen Polo. Say what? But it’s true! The first Volkswagen Polo introduced to the world back in 1975 was actually a rebadged Audi 50. This is because when Volkswagen decided that it was time to start adding
