Paige Dodd Audi, October 13th , 2017. The high-output V6 doesn’t just impress with its strong performance, but also with its high level of efficiency. In the NEDC, it consumes just 8.7 liters of fuel per 100 kilometers (27.0 US mpg), which corresponds to 197 grams CO2 per kilometer (317.0 g/mi). This means a 17 percent consumption saving compared with the previous model. A decisive factor in this is the new TFSI combustion process from Audi, which is known as the B-cycle. It has been specifically designed for the partial-load range, which is the predominant operating mode during normal use.
Eve Fitzgerald Audi, October 13th , 2017. The excellent torsional rigidity of the body is the foundation for a highly precise driving response as well as for peace and quiet on board. This allows the new RS5 Coupe to be a step ahead of its competitors. Switchable engine bearings ensure comfort at idle. The new RS5 Coupe also scores top marks for passive safety. In the interior, the adaptive occupant restraint system for the front seats offers outstanding protection. It adjusts the effect of the front airbags and the seat-belt force limiters to the seating position of the driver and front passenger as well as to the type of frontal collision.
Caitlin Duncan Audi, October 13th , 2017. Audi RS5 Coupe an emotively elegant expression. For the first time, it now has a three-dimensional form and thus creates interplay between light and shadow. quattro blisters on the flanks emphasize the pronounced bulges over the wheel arches, which have been widened by 15 millimeters (0.6 in). The widened door sills are painted in the vehicle color and also feature inserts in black or optionally carbon. The exterior mirror housings are in matt aluminum look and optionally also in carbon, in the vehicle color or in black.
Shannon Griffin Ford Fiesta, October 13th , 2017. "Brake interventions for Active Park Assist can prevent distracted drivers from having low speed parking bumps, and make parking in tight spaces even less stressful." Fiesta is the first car in its segment in Europe to offer Cross Traffic Alert, which warns drivers reversing out of a parking space of vehicles that may soon be crossing behind them. The feature is amongst 15 Fiesta driver assistance technologies in total, including Adaptive Cruise Control, Adjustable Speed Limiter, Blind Spot Information System, Distance Indication, Driver Alert, Lane Keeping Aid, Lane Keeping Alert and Forward Collision Warning.
Niamh Hart Audi, October 13th , 2017. Drivers can create their own personal driving experience using the standard dynamic handling system. Audi drive select influences the characteristics of both the engine and the steering. What’s more, the system also adapts the characteristic curve for shifting, as well as the exhaust flaps and further optional modules to suit the four modes: auto, comfort, dynamic and individual.
Mollie Slater Audi, October 13th , 2017. In the classic Miller cycle, the reduced cylinder charge is detrimental to torque and power output. These aspects have been neutralized by Audi thanks to the implementation of turbocharging and the two-stage Audi valvelift system (AVS). The four camshafts of the 2.9 TFSI can each be adjusted by 50 degrees crank angle. At higher load and engine speed ranges, AVS closes the inlet valve later. The opening time increases from 130 to 200 degrees crankshaft angle, while at the same time the valve lift increases from 6.0 to 10.0 millimeters (0.2 to 0.4 in). Cylinder charging also increases considerably - the 2.9 TFSI revs up powerfully and delivers an impressive output.
Eleanor Norton Audi, October 13th , 2017. As an alternative to the further-developed electromechanical power steering, Audi also offers dynamic steering with RS-specific tuning. This uses a superposition gear to vary its ratio by up to 100 percent, depending on the car‘s speed and the mode selected in the Audi drive select dynamic handling system. At the cornering limits, the system countersteers with tiny impulses, thus further boosting the dynamism and driving safety. In the dynamic setting within Audi drive select, the superposition of the dynamic steering is stiff in order to support a more sporty driving style.
Kiera Shaw Audi, October 13th , 2017. Each of the two turbochargers on the 2.9 TFSI is assigned to a single cylinder bank and can build up a maximum of 0.95 bar charge pressure. Like with all new V6 and V8 engines from Audi, the turbochargers are installed within the 90-degree angle of the cylinder banks, and thus the exhaust side of the cylinder heads is on the inside, while the intake side is on the outside of the engine. This layout enables compact construction and short gas flow paths with minimal flow losses - the 2.9 TFSI responds extremely spontaneously to movement of the accelerator pedal.

Millie Lowe Ford Fiesta, October 13th , 2017. Also offered for the first time on Fiesta is Ford‘s Active Park Assist with Perpendicular Parking, which helps drivers find suitable spaces and park hands free nose-to-tail and side-by-side with other cars. Further enhanced for Fiesta, the technology for the first time can now apply the brakes if drivers do not respond to system guidance and proximity warnings while performing forward and reverse manoeuvres, and a collision with a parked car or obstacle to the front or rear is imminent. "For some drivers our automated parking technologies deliver a ’future shock’: they remain so advanced that customers using them for the very first time can be a little awe-struck," said Darren Palmer, small car vehicle line director, Ford of Europe.
