The Audi lineup is gaining popularity thanks to stylish new models, cutting-edge technology and increased marketing efforts. Read on to learn more more about all of the new Audi cars and SUVs, as well as updates to existing models.
2013 Audi A3
The 5-door Audi A3 hatchback is unchanged for the 2013 model year, pending the arrival of a fully redesigned 2014 model that's expected to arrive early in 2013.
2013 Audi A4, S4
The A4 and S4 get a facelift for 2013 including a new grille, revised bumpers and new front and rear lighting. The sedans also gain optional mobile Wi-Fi hotspot connectivity, along with newly available adaptive cruise control. The A4 Avant is discontinued after the 2012 model year, but the all-wheel-drive Allroad takes its place.
2013 Audi A5, S5, RS 5
Like its A4 stablemate, the A5 and S5 get a new grille, bumpers and exterior lighting for 2013. They also add newly available adaptive cruise control, plus an optional Wi-Fi hotspot. A high-performance RS 5 joins the lineup, while the 4.2-liter V8 engine in the sporty S5 Coupe is dropped in favor of the convertible's supercharged V6.
2013 Audi A6, S6
While the A6 is largely unchanged after last year's redesign, the sedan now offers Quattro all-wheel drive with its base-level 2.0T engine. An S6 also joins the lineup for 2013, offering a 420-horsepower turbocharged V8 and 7-speed automatic.
2013 Audi A7, S7
The A7 sees minor changes for 2013, though shoppers are likely to be happy about the addition of available 5-passenger seating to the luxury hatchback. A fuel-saving auto start-stop system is also newly standard. Meanwhile, a high-performance S7 model joins the lineup with the same engine and transmission as the sporty S6.
2013 Audi A8, S8
Last year's V8 is gone, replaced instead by three new engines: a 3.0-liter supercharged V6 dubbed 3.0T, a diesel V6 known as 3.0 TDI and a turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 called 4.0T. A new S8 features a beefed-up, 520-hp version of the V8 that's good for 0-60 mph in less than four seconds.
2013 Audi allroad
The allroad station wagon is new for 2013. Based on the A4 (unlike the previous allroad, which was based on the larger A6), the wagon features an increased ride height, off-road styling and Quattro all-wheel drive. A 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine and 8-speed automatic are standard.
2013 Audi Q5
Last year's 3.2-liter V6 is gone in favor of a 272-hp 3.0-liter supercharged V6, while a new Q5 Hybrid offers an electric motor mated to the base Q5's 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder. Like other Audi models, a Wi-Fi hotspot is newly optional, while exterior changes include revised front and rear styling.
2013 Audi Q7
Although Audi isn't making any major changes to the Q7 for 2013, diesel models get a newer lightweight V6 that produces 240 hp and returns up to 28 mpg on the highway.
2013 Audi R8
After a major overhaul for the 2012 model year, the R8 sports car receives only minor changes for 2013, including new LED headlights and taillights, and a revised front-end and grille. The 2013 R8 also gets an S tronic dual-clutch transmission to replace the old R tronic single clutch unit.
2013 Audi TT, TTS, TT RS
Only minor changes, such as an available S-Line Competition Package and new wheel designs, distinguish the 2013 TT from last year's model.
