Toronto 2016: Audi celebrates 4 Canadian premieres

By ,

Four new Audi models celebrated their Canadian debut today at the 2016 Canadian International Auto Show (CIAS) in Toronto. The list is highlighted by the 2017 Audi R8, the fastest and most powerful R8 ever made with a 5.2L V10 engine that produces 540 horsepower in standard trim and 610 horsepower in V10 Plus trim.

There is also the Audi RS7, which previously debuted in North America at the Los Angeles Auto Show last fall and offers a Performance model rated at 605 horsepower. Meanwhile, the Audi h-tron concept arrives in Canada after making its global premiere in Detroit earlier this year. This hydrogen-fueled CUV accelerates from 0-100 km/h in less than seven seconds and provides an EV range of about 600 kilometres.

Finally, the CIAS features the RS7 Piloted Driving concept that managed to reach speeds of 240 km/h on the Hockenheim track without a driver behind the wheel. It houses a 560-horsepower V8 engine.
