If you think the Audi is a beautiful, high-performance sports car, you are partly right. But it also claims top-ten spots in many of the other car category lists on U.S. News and World Report, including luxury large cars, wagons, and luxury compact SUVs.

If you haven’t checked out Audi recently, you should. These Audi vehicles are the best on the market today.

1. Audi A6: Details Matter

This stunning model ranks #2 in U.S. News and World Report’s list of best large luxury cars. It’s the masterful attention to detail that sets this model apart from others in its category. The engineers at Audi labored over the exact placement of things like the speakers and the optimum weight of the door.

Auto experts gave it high marks for its powerful engine and handling, calling it one of the best driving experiences in its class. The supple leather interior offers comfortable features including an intuitive MMI infotainment system, which controls the climate, audio, and stereo.

The A6 gets 25 city and 33 highway miles per gallon. The diesel-powered TDI boasts an impressive 24/38 mpg.

2. Audi A8: Turbo Diesel Fuel Economy

The A8 was given the top rating in its class of large premium cars by J.D. Power. It’s the first aluminum space-frame construction for Audi. With a number of engine options to choose from, its popular 4.0 twin-turbo V8 brings 420 horsepower and a top speed of 155 mph (limited electronically).

Its turbo diesel edition helps save on fuel, getting 24/36 mpg. The base A8 gets 17/28 mpg, which is more in line with many cars in its class.

The car cabin is one of the nicest in its class with supportive headrests, luxurious leather, and ample room in the backseat.

3. Audi Q5: Family Functionality

This top contender ranks #4 among compact luxury crossovers and SUVs, according to Car and Driver. It boasts responsive handling and plenty of room; in fact, roominess was one of the reasons it was named the 2014 best luxury SUV for families.

This SUV has standard all-wheel drive and agile handling. Its TDI model features a V6 engine, and rates an impressive 24/31 mpg. However, its standard V6 model is no slacker in gas economy at 20/28 — notable numbers for an SUV.

4. Audi R8: The Super Splurge

Imagine the exquisite handling and agility of a German motor car combined with the speed and acceleration of a fine Italian sports car, and you have the extravagant R8. This speedster boasts 550 horses under the hood (in the V10 Plus model, and an impressive 420 in the V8 coupe) and a dual-clutch transmission.

Audi is known for more than its handling. It features an MMI system complete with bluetooth, real-time traffic, and GPS. While the cargo space is small, we’re guessing you’re not taking this beauty out on the family camping trip or grocery run, anyway.

From family car to blood-pumping race car, Audi’s impressive lineup will suit your needs.
