What does the 81-year-old Cernan pertain to an all-wheel-drive high-end wagon for individuals who discover Subarus also economical?

Now that diesel is a dirty word in the Volkswagen Group, Audi would just validate that the 272-hp 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder gas engine will certainly be provided in the United States, making 20 even more horsepower compared to the regular A4's 2.0. More than likely it'll couple with the eight-speed automatic.

Whether the 2.0-liter diesel comes stateside is an open question since Audi has actually been dragged into the emissions-cheating rumor. Indeed, during the entire press conference, the word "diesel" was not uttered as soon as by anyone onstage, the execs liking to rather discuss the 3 plug-in crossbreeds that are coming (variations of the A6, A7, and Q7) as well as the h-tron Quattro idea, a fanciful crossover SUV with an even dreamier hydrogen fuel cell.

All that plus the Allroad plus the silver-haired Gene Cernan plus a model of a lunar rover prototype on a simulated lunar area produced the most non-diesel interview Audi could possibly have actually created. Well done, gents.
