Everyone seems to be a bit more mindful of fuel economy lately, even the luxury and sport cars. So many be it shouldn't be to much of a surprise that Audi has announced that unlike their current 2011 Audi S5, the 2013 s5 will have a supercharged V-6 instead of the current V-8.
This is going to make the 2013 Audi S5 nearly a quarter more fuel efficient than its current 2011 Audi s5 sibling. But I have a question for Audi. If you're going to be so worried about fuel economy, when are you going to bring over more 40 MPG diesel cars?
Some of the best value car deals in today's high priced fuel economy are high mileage diesels. Problem is finding them, which is why so many people turn to tools like our automobile search engine for help. Automakers simply aren't importing enough options to America like they offer in Europe.
Currently Audi offers the Audi A3 diesel wagon, and the Audi Q7 in America. But given the over $50k price tag on the Q7 most of us would prefer to see more options like the a3 get shipped overseas and end up in Audi Albany NY dealerships.
Of course this move to have raised the MPG on the S5 could be more political than about buyers demand for the best value car deals. Audi could be keeping an eye towards the future of Federal mandates for higher fuel economy. That's nice Audi, but hear us now. We want more 40 MPG diesels.
You already have four diesels available in the A5 stable alone in Europe. How hard can it be to pick one and give the Audi A3 wagon a diesel sister? Something that we can offer in Audi Albany NY dealerships that cost less than a year's salary would be nice.
You definitely surprised us Audi, but common, how bout you really surprise all those people on the automobile search engine and give them what they're really looking for. You have four diesel versions of the S5 already, how about sharing?
