That’s a short list of Audis with the formidable 3.0-liter supercharged V-6, or formidable before this crossover cutie topped them all with 354 horsepower and 347 lb-ft of torque. Horsepower swells 30 percent over the latest Q5 3.0T and its 272 horses and 295 pound-feet. Audi manned up this 3.0T with a stiffened block and a beefier crankshaft and bearings. More air gets through the sizable single-frame grille than in Audi cars with the 3.0T. Enlarging the radiator further improved cooling, allowing boost to rise to set this new bar for 3.0T power.

It appears Porsche has attempted to translate the styling that has worked so well for so long on the 911 onto this new sedan – to somewhat disastrous results. On the bright side, production is still a while off, so there’s plenty of time for changes to be made in the styling department before the car’s expected debut at next year’s Geneva Auto Show.

Ride and handlingAt moderate speeds, the S60 R-Design is a refined cruiser, with a comfortable ride despite its firmer suspension.

At the moment, designers are specifying four-wheel independent suspension with a multilink rear end and progressive-rate coil springs with gas dampers. Again, this isn’t the cheap option.
