From those who come to Audi North Scottsdale of Phoenix to purchase a new Audi A3, A4, A5, A6, A7, A8, Q5, Q7, TT or R8 or premium used car to owners who turn to our car service center for their routine maintenance - people always want to know what Audi has in store next.
That's actually one of our favorite things about carrying Audi cars and parts. Evolution is constant.
The latest example of advancement consumers can expect to see integrated into the new Audi lineup comes in the form of a concept car that recently debuted in Paris, France. Coined the Audi crosslane coupe, it signals significant change to future Audi Q5 and Audi Q7 models.
The three areas Audi has clearly focused the majority of their energies on are overall vehicle weight, cost (production and ultimately MSRP), and energy usage over the course of the vehicle's lifespan.
