2015 Audi TT Virtual Cockpit Revolutionizes Instrument Panel

We have talked a lot over the course of the last few months about the upcoming 2015 Audi TT, but not without good reason. It seems like every few weeks we are given a little more good news about just how excellent this vehicle will be, with the latest news having mostly to do with the updated virtual cockpit that turns the TT from a mere car into a technological wonder the likes of which the auto industry has never seen.

2015 Audi A3 Named IIHS Top Safety Pick+

It used to be that if a vehicle could handle the standard crash tests performed by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, they were considered among the industry’s safest vehicles, and thankfully for consumers, a whole slew of respectable models have managed to master those tests over the course of the last several years.

Those vehicles were named IIHS Top Safety Picks, but in the last year or so, the IIHS has added a small overlap test to the mix that has completely stifled an overwhelming majority of those top-rated vehicles. The 2015 Audi A3, however, handled the small overlap crash test beautifully in its recent go-round with the IIHS, and as a result, it was named to the elite club of Top Safety Pick+.

Audi Traffic Light Detection System Shows Its Green Value

We here at Audi Melbourne probably do not have to tell you this, but cars are getting smarter and smarter all the time—so much so that it is almost kind of hard to believe some of the things that they are able to do these days. It is even harder in some cases to believe what they are going to be able to do in the not-too-distant future, with a pretty major example of that being a system that predicts which route to take through a city based entirely on which way will get drivers through the most green lights.

2015 Audi A3 Nominated for World Car of the Year

To put it bluntly, the World Car of the Year award is a pretty big deal. For the last ten years, an international jury panel of almost seventy top-level automotive journalists from 22 countries all over the world have cast their votes for what they deem to be the world’s best vehicle in a given year, so we are not just talking about a car that people dig here in the States. This is a car that is universally excellent for anybody who buys it anywhere, and that is why we here at Audi Melbourne were so excited to see that the 2015 Audi A3 was one of the three finalists for the accolade, which will be awarded next month at the New York International Auto Show.

2015 Audi TT Could Expand Lineup

At this point, it would be more than obvious to say that we here at Audi Melbourne are excited to get our first in-depth reviews of the 2015 Audi TT from the Geneva Motor Show in just a couple of weeks, but there was recently a little bit of news that suggested that this new version of TT might actually be the beginning of a small family of TT hatchbacks and crossovers that could appeal to a number of different customers.

Audi Working on Sugar-Based Biofuel

Cars run on gas, which is an obvious thing for anybody over the age of three, but we all must occasionally wonder why engineers have not as of yet been able to develop an engine that can run on something that does not cost $3.50 a gallon. The DeLorean time machine from the “Back to the Future” movies ran on garbage, after all. What is stopping us from discovering something like that today? Continue reading

4G LTE Coming to Future Audi Vehicles

We here at Audi Melbourne, your Audi dealership in Melbourne, FL, have spent a lot of time this month talking about technological advancements coming to our production vehicles over the course of the next few years, but since nobody is complaining about all the excellent things Audi vehicles will soon be able to do, we will go ahead and drop another little bit of technological news that we think our customers are really going to enjoy: Audi vehicles will soon offer 4G LTE internet connectivity without having to leach off the 4G offered on a smartphone.
