LIVE PHOTOS: 2017 Chicago Auto Show

The 2017 Chicago Auto Show was yesterday and, while it doesn’t have the prestige of the Detroit or LA Auto Show, it did feature some great Audis that we were able to get up close to. So we’re going to bring you some live photos from the show so you can take a look at some of Audi’s great cars as if you were there yourself.

Audi R8 Spyder

The Audi R8 Spyder is one of the coolest supercars on the road, as it packs supermodel looks with an open-top driving experience that’s hard to match. Also, without the roof, you get to hear all of that 5.2 naturally-aspirated V10’s song. It’s seductive and brilliant.

Audi S4

This new generation of Audi S4 is an exciting one. The Audi S4 is now in its fifth generation and is powered by a 3.0 liter turbocharged V6 that makes 354 hp and mated to an eight-speed automatic. If you need a high-performance sports car that has four-door practicality and all-weather capability, look no further than the Audi S4.

 

Audi Q5

Now in its second-generation, the brand-new Audi Q5 should continue the first-gen’s tremendous success. The first Q5 was one of Audi’s best-selling models and was a tremendous SUV for Audi. However, it was starting to get a bit stale and this new car breathes new life into the nameplate. With improved looks, a fantastic interior and new engine options, the Audi Q5 should be a huge hit in America.

Audi A5 Sportback

The Audi A5 Sportback is something of an oddity in America. Its first generation was never sold here in the ‘States, so there are many enthusiasts who are unaware of its charms. This new second-generation, though, will be coming to the US (and was recently shown in this year’s Super Bowl commercial) and we couldn’t be more excited about it. What is essentially a four-door, hatchback Audi A5, it blends good looks, great performance and practicality all into a sylish coupe-like package.

I've been in love with cars since I was a kid, specifically German cars. Now I get to drive them talk about them on the internet.
