Audi drivers know that the Audi ownership experience is about more than driving a car that turns heads and keeps you engaged; it’s about value, too. After all, Audi led all luxury brands in the 2014 Strategic Vision Total Quality Index, and the automaker is renowned for making safe, reliable vehicles that stay on the road long past those of its competitors and return impressive fuel economy.
Now, Audi is doing more to bolster that reputation, as the Audi A5 has won a 2015 Kelley Blue Book 5-Year Cost to Own Award! Given to vehicles with the lowest projected ownership costs and designed to help shoppers make more informed car-buying decisions, the awards highlight vehicles that hold up well and limit driver expenses over the cars’ first five years on the road.
Powered by a 2.0 TFSI turbocharged direct-injection four-cylinder engine, the base 2015 A5 produces 220 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, giving New England Audi drivers more than enough zip to conquer any road. Yet that power doesn’t come at the expense of efficiency, as the A5 Coupe returns up to 31 highway mpg, while the A5 Cabriolet returns up to 28 highway mpg. That blend of performance and fuel economy is just a part of what makes the A5 one of the more popular models at our Audi dealership near Windham, NH.
”High quality of build and efficient, yet powerful performance are two hallmarks of Audi vehicles that contribute to a lower cost of ownership,” Scott Keogh, president, Audi of America, said in a release. “We’re proud to see the 2015 Audi A5 continue that trend with a 5-Year Cost to Own Award.”

They say not to judge a book by its cover, but if the first glimpse of the new 2016 Range Rover Evoque is any indication of what’s to come, the next chapter in this compact SUV’s storied? history is going to be an exciting one. Land Rover teased the upcoming Evoque’s striking new headlamp design earlier this week, promising to make Land Rover’s best-selling vehicle even more popular. We may not get the latest Evoque on the lot at our Range Rover dealership near Salem until this fall, but we’re already filled with anticipation.
Details are fairly scarce at this point, but Land Rover has revealed that the next Evoque will be the first vehicle in the Land Rover line to feature available full LED adaptive headlamps. These headlamps use lighting technology that provides better illumination in dark conditions, allowing drivers to more closely follow the curves of the road and identify obstacles in their path. Additionally, the headlamps lend a distinctive design to the new Evoque that will make it appear even bolder and more modern than ever.
“Our challenge has been to enhance the Range Rover Evoque without diluting its iconic design,” said Gerry McGovern, Land Rover design director and chief creative officer. “The design refreshments give it an even greater presence on the road yet retain the emotional appeal that has made it so popular with more than 400,000 customers around the world.”
In addition to the headlamps, the new Evoque promises to include a new engine line-up, interior enhancements and additional convenience features. The 2016 Range Rover Evoque will make its world debut at the Geneva Motor Show in early March, and you can look out for more details then! We haven’t been this excited about Land Rover news since we learned about the 2015 Discover Sport, so check back often for updates.
Currently in its third generation, the Acura MDX has long impressed luxury-minded drivers with its style, size and elegance. It’s the best-selling luxury three-row SUV of all time, and it’s of frequent interest to drivers at our Acura dealership in the Greater Boston Area. Now, the 2016 version of the MDX is available for savvy SUV shoppers to test-drive, and it’s hard not to be impressed by the latest MDX’s long list of upgrades.
For the technology-minded, the 2016 MDX is sure to be an exciting option. Both the MDX and the MDX with Technology Package can now come equipped with the AcuraWatch suite of advanced safety and driver-assistive technologies. Including perks such as Road Departure Mitigation and Rear Cross Traffic Monitor, these features allow for added peace of mind on the road and add to the MDX’s reputation as a safe, modern ride. AcuraWatch is standard on the MDX with Advance Package, while a Multi-View Angle Rear Camera with Dynamic Guidelines is now standard on all trims.
If performance is more your thing, the 2016 MDX sports upgrades in that capacity, too. A new Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) system makes use of a twin-clutch design to offer improved handling and enhanced torque capabilities. A new nine-speed automatic transmission is 66 pounds lighter than its predecessor and helps the MDX achieve impressive fuel economy ratings.
If you think a new MDX is just what you need to get over this winter funk, get in touch with Acura of Peabody today to learn when we’ll have the 2016 models in stock!
