Audi A7 Sportback 2011

Audi A7 Sportback

The Audi A7 Sportback is my favourite car built by the Volkswagen Group company: Audi.

It was first introduced at the 2009 Detroit Auto Show, although it will be released in June 2011 in the USA and Europe in October 2010 and Australia also in 2011.

Specifications:

Style:

4dr Hatchback AWD (3.0L 6cyl 7A)

Engine type:

Turbocharged V6 diesel

Cubic Capacity (cc):

2,967cc

Compression ratio

16.8:1

Horsepower (hp)

221 @ 4,000-4,400

Transmission type

Seven-speed automated manual

It has half a cubic metre (17.7 cu-ft) of storage space (1.5 m³ [56 cu-ft] with seats folded).

Back seats

Once the 2011 Audi A7 Sportback goes into production it won't get gas engines, as the supercharged 3.0-liter V6 and 4.2-liter FSI V8 will be the first engines to be offered for the Q7. Meanwhile, the big carbon-ceramic brake discs on this prototype are showcar excess, but we love the stopping power they afford on this nearly 4,000-pound car.

It is currently priced at 42 925 GBP (51 402 EUR) (67 040 USD).

The official debut will be made in September at the Paris Auto Show. On sale in the spring of 2011, the A7 will compete with models like the Mercedes-Benz CLS, the Porsche Panamera, and the Aston Martin Rapide.

Optional are LED headlights with rear LED lights standard

Volkswagen Bora, 1999-2005
In Europe and Australia the name “Vento” was dropped and became the “Bora” in 1999 and it disliked the Golf and soon it was turning from a Volkswagen Golf saloon/sedan into a normal saloon/sedan, unlike the previous generations. The car is still in production in China, Canada (with a new model similar to the Bora called the VW City Jetta in 2008) and Mexico, but ended its production in Japan, Australia, USA and Europe in 2005.

The engines for the 2011 model include:
our engines for America: In the USA and Canada, the new Jetta is offered with three petrol engines and one turbodiesel direct-injection engine (TDI Clean Diesel). Two of the four engines are new on board: the entry-level engine (85 kW / 115 PS) and the common rail TDI (103 kW / 140 PS). Technically perfected in the new model are the 125 kW / 170 PS 2.5-liter gasoline engine and the sporty top engine, the turbocharged 2.0-liter TSI with 147 kW / 200 PS, which will power the top model Jetta GLI in North America starting in 2011. The new 115 PS engine has a combined fuel economy of 28 mpg* (manual transmission); the version with automatic transmission attains a value of 26 mpg*. A technical highlight is the new 2.0-liter TDI Clean Diesel; thanks to conversion to the world’s leading direct injection diesel system – common rail injection – the turbocharged engine is as quiet as a gasoline engine and as powerful as a sports car engine (320 Newton-meters maximum torque). A parti 
culate filter and a NOx storage catalytic converter ensure that this TDI meets emissions requirements in all states of the USA. A combined fuel economy of 34 mpg makes the new and very agile Jetta 2.0-liter TDI (0-60 mph in 8.7 seconds) one of the most fuel-efficient and lowest emitting vehicles on the North American continent.
Six engines for Europe: In Europe, the engine strategy will conform to prevailing market conditions. Smaller engine displacements and charging are key objectives here. This means somewhat less power in the base engines, significantly lower engine displacements, and all engines are charged. Four of the six engines are new to the Jetta program and will be added in 2011: The 1.2 TSI (77 kW / 105 PS), 1.4 TSI (118 kW / 160 PS) and two common rail turbodiesels 1.6 TDI (77 / kW 105 PS) and 2.0 TDI (103 kW / 140 PS). As usual, the 1.4 TSI (90 kW / 122 PS) and the 2.0 TSI (147 kW / 200 PS) offer high-tech in proven form. Except for the 1.2 TSI, all engines may be paired with a 6-speed DSG (77 kW TDI, 103 kW TDI, 147 kW TSI) or 7-speed DSG (90 kW TSI, 118 kW TSI).

But in 1996 the Skoda side of Volkswagen announced that for a new model they could revive one of their earlier of '50's and chose the Octavia of 1959 as a new saloon and estate car.
So the Octavia was built in the same year.
