    2013 Audi Q7 TDI SUV Gets All-New, More Powerful Diesel

    Diesel engines make a lot of sense in SUVs, mitigating the gas-guzzling effects of big, heavy bodies, poor aerodynamics and large engines.

  • 2011 Audi Q7 TDI test drive, Catskill Mountains, Nov 2011

    We tend to prefer smaller cars here at Green Car Reports. Since far more than half of U.S. car journeys are made by a single occupant, smaller could often suffice--and cost less, and pollute less. But some buyers simply need larger vehicles--or at least want them--and seven-seat sport-utility vehicles are probably the top of the "larger vehicle" category. Further stratify that list by moving from, say, a Toyota Highlander fitted with a third row into the German luxury category, and you end up at our latest quick-test vehicle, the 2011 Audi Q7 TDI clean-diesel sport-utility vehicle. Seven...

  • Audi A3 TDI clean diesel - European model

    It's well known in the car industry that a diesel engine costs 10 to 20 percent more to build than a gasoline motor of equivalent output. That's because diesels have to be sturdier, and these days all US-bound diesels are fitted with turbochargers to boost their power. Now a European executive has come right out and said it: Americans are going to have to pay more for diesels. And that's where we pause, because we're not convinced US buyers will pay the premium--especially for brands just launching diesel for the first time. Europe: Much cheaper diesel In Europe, where diesels take half the...

    We were once told by an auto writer that "real car people" didn't want green cars. They wanted noise, and roaring engines, and squealing tires. Well, the triumph of diesel-powered race cars at the famed 24 Heures du Mans shows you can have both. The French carmaker Peugeot placed first and second...
