What We Know So Far About The 2019 Audi S6 Avant Wagon

Audi S6 Avant (1)

USA customers are clamoring for the 2019 Audi S6 Avant Wagon. However, it doesn’t look like we’re going to see this performance wagon from Audi.

It has been an important week for the industry. This past week alone, we have seen the likes of the 2018 Volvo V90, the 2018 Jaguar XF Sportbrake, and the 2018 Porsche Panamera Turbo Sport Turismo. These are all wonderful in their own little ways and Americans love seeing these European brands in dealerships, but we’re missing out on the Audi Avant.

The 2019 Audi A6 was recently photographed in all its camouflaged glory. It made its debut in March at the Geneva Motor Show to replace a competent but aging model. Though there was no word from Audi about the fate of the S6, but it will likely follow the A6.

Americans will most likely miss out on the Avant, though we doubt very much that we’re not going to see at least the sedan variant. Right now, we’ve got the Volvo, Jaguar, and Mercedes wagons here. There’s a big market for wagons in the United States, so we’re here crossing our fingers that we’ll see the Avant sometime.

Audi has yet to reveal what it plans for the S6, engine-wise. All we know is that the current S6 uses a version of Audi’s twin-turbo 4.0-liter V-8 and a seven-speed dual clutch transmission. It produces 450 horsepower and 406 pound-feet of torque. All models have the quattro all-wheel drive. The next-generation S6 will most likely shed off the V-8 engine and downsize into one that would be more fuel efficient. We’re hoping to see a variant of RS4’s new 2.9-liter twin-turbo V-6.

MW Motors Luka EV Ready To Be Launched

MW Motors announced that its Luka EV, an electric vehicle, is ready to be introduced to the world. The team just started testing its first prototype after we first heard about its conceptualization in 2015.

The goal of the Luka EV is to reach 186 miles and a weight of 1,650 pounds for an affordable price of less than €20,000. The goal has been met as the two-seater Luka EV uses four 12.5-kW in-wheel electric motors that produce a total of 66 horsepower. That could push the car to 62 miles per hour from a complete stop. This can be reached at just 9.6 seconds. Top speed is 90 mph.

Luka EV is a bit heavier compared to the target of 1,650 pounds, but it’s still okay at 1,800 pounds, thanks to an aluminum alloy chassis and fiber-reinforced plastic body. It can go 186 miles on a single charge because of the 21.9-kWh NiCoMn battery pack.

The Luka EV has a retro look on the outside, looking a bit like the Mini Cooper. But don’t be fooled by the retro-inspired styling on the exterior. The cabin packs a whole lot of tech and modern features. The seats are upholstered in leather, and there’s air conditioning, power windows, infotainment and navigation will also come standard to the model.

According to MW Motors, the Luka EV will be highway legal in the European Union, but there are no details yet whether it will be available in North America. There are a lot of EV startups in the market these days, but there are only a few lightweight, stylish, and affordable options. So, the Luka EV will be a welcome option in a market that is slowly growing and becoming increasingly relevant to society.

No other details are available, including the prices for the Luka EV, so stay tuned for that.

All-New Ford Focus Reveals Details In Teaser

The date is April 10. Mark that on your calendar. The event? Ford is revealing the next-generation Ford Focus, and the details are quite stunning. Ahead of the April 10 reveal, Ford started releasing teaser videos about what to expect on the all-new Focus.

The first teaser video details the intricate designs on the car such as the jewel headlights and sculpted body panels. There might also be a ST-Line appearance package, based on the sporty wheels that are equipped with Michelin rubber.

The video reveals a hatchback, but we do know that Ford is also releasing a sedan and wagon variants of the next-generation Focus. As you well know, prototypes for all three variants were spotted in different instances last year. In February, the undisguised hatch version was also photographed during what looked like the official photoshoot for the model.

This model represents the fourth generation under the Focus name. Expectations are it will be on sale starting this fall as a 2019 model, so the April 10 reveal is just about right. Unlike other times, though, this fourth-generation Focus will be sourced from a plant in China. These are the models that are going to be sold in the United States.

The interior will be roomier than the present-generation Focus and it would have sharper dynamics, too, according to reports. It’s not clear yet what drivetrains Ford plans for the new Focus but all units will most likely be using a turbocharged engine. There will be an automatic and manual transmission, and a plug-in hybrid will also be available. We’re not sure yet if there will be a Focus Electric like before.

There would be a Focus ST hatch that will be offered with a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4 that produces 250 horsepower.

Focus is currently competing with the Chevrolet Cruze, Honda Civic, Mazda 3, Subaru Impreza, Toyota Corolla and Volkswagen Golf.
