    1. Geneva Spotlight: New Blue Audi A3 with Zubehor Body Kit and Wheels Pops Up on Press Day 2



      Common practice for Audi at a major motor show is to add more cars on the second press day when day 1 includes a press conference.

      We're getting close to the Geneva Auto Show. In case you'd seen the photo blasts of the new Audi RS 4 and the TT RS plus and hadn't done the math, it's messaging time in these weeks ahead of the main event that first week of March.

    4. Volkswagen Group Modular Transverse Matrix (MQB) Architecture Revealed This Week



      As most Audi fans are aware, a new generation of A3 will debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March. Those in the know also probably know that the A3 and other Audi models with transverse engines like the TT and eventually the A1 will move to a new modular transverse matrix dubbed MQB.

      If MQB sounds similar to Audi's already employed MLB (modular longitudinal matrix) that underpins or will underpin nearly every ...
