Audi Plans to Broaden the Brand’s SUV Lineup Due to Increasing Success

2017-08-22T13:33:30+00:00August 22nd, 2017|Audi, New Vehicles, SUV|

Audi boasts three new SUVs in the works: the Audi Q4, Q8 and e-tron models with Quattro System for SUV enthusiasts.

The 2020 Audi Q8 is sure to please the eager roadster with its 3.0-liter turbo-charged Fuel Stratified Injection engine. Powered by a plug-in hybrid system, this electric motored vehicle has 443 horsepower with 516 lb-ft of torque that can go from zero to 60 in a reported 5.4 seconds. The Audi Quattro system has an eight-speed automatic transmission, which propels to speeds up to 155 miles-per-hour.

As for the Audi Q4 SUV, production has been reported to begin in 2019 taking a coupe-like profile and implanting it on a high-riding SUV body. Some car experts say the new Q4 will extrapolate from the classic Audi TT DNA to broaden the abilities of this universally loved model.

2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS450 Offers the Truck Experience in the Form of an SUV

2017-03-06T13:35:45+00:00March 6th, 2017|Mercedes Benz, New Vehicles|

Mercedes-Benz successfully transfers the driving experience of a truck into the new 2017 GLS450 SUV, combining the best of both worlds.

Santa Barbara Auto Group is pleasantly surprised with the release of the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS450. This behemoth cross-over SUV, offers three rows of seating with exceptional cabin space. The fairly straight-edged, old-school body style relies more on rulers and levels than the majority of its modern rivals, exuding an air of confidence and strength. It’s difficult to create a three-row crossover that doesn’t appear to be a block on wheels. However, the engineers at Mercedes-Benz managed to blend new and old design concepts to create a cohesive compromise that makes the 2017 GLS450 the best-looking vehicle in its class. Santa Barbara Auto Group, an authorized Mercedes-Benz dealer, is excited to offer customers the 2017 GLS450 because it’s the kind of vehicle that fills the gap between trucks and mid-size crossovers for undecided drivers.

Comfort on the Road and in the Vehicle

One of the most impressive attributes of the 2017 GLS450 is that it packs a shockingly smooth ride. Andrew Krok from the automotive web platform Road Show took the GLS450 for a test drive through the reputably calloused and beaten roads of Metro-Detroit. He claims that the roads became much easier to deal with as the SUV absorbed the shock of Detroit’s cratered streets with a sort of soft and forgiving body roll.

With a 363hp, V-6 engine that boasts 369lb-ft of torque the 2017 GLS450 is strong and capable, while giving fair consideration to its fuel-efficiency. The addition of the new nine-speed automatic transmission keeps RPM’s quite low for the sake of fuel-economy, without sacrificing the ability to smoothly and quickly shift when prompt acceleration is necessary or just desired.

The interior of the vehicle matches the vehicle’s exterior by only modernizing the aspects that truly matter. Mercedes-Benz added their signature COMAND infotainment system controlled by a touchpad, a newer steering wheel, and conveniently place USB ports in the center counsel. The first and second rows in the vehicle allow for ample leg and head space, while the third is only slightly smaller beating out the rivaling Cadillac Escalade and Infiniti QX80. Thanks to power switches in the trunk to fold down or tilt the third-row, making space for luggage or groceries has never been easier.

Our Mercedes-Benz team at Santa Barbara Auto Group is excited to show off the 2017 GLS450, so be sure to come in for a test drive and see if this vehicle is the right fit for you.

J.D. Power 2016 Recognizes Porsche Macan for Extraordinary Quality

2017-02-06T13:43:42+00:00February 6th, 2017|Award, News, Porsche, premium|

According to J.D. Power the 2016 Porsche Macan overcomes all competitors for Initial Quality Rating in a compact premium SUV.

The Porsche Macan has been a customer favorite since its introduction to the brand. The sleek and sporty exterior fits right in with Porsche’s sporting heritage, and the quality that Porsche’s engineers put into the design of this machine is nothing short of amazing. J.D. Power annually awards vehicles in several different categories—one being Initial Quality Rating. The Initial Quality Study (IQS) examines issues experienced within the first ninety days after purchasing, mainly focusing on mechanical quality and design of areas such as powertrain, body and interior, and features and accessories. The 2016 Porsche Macan was the winner this year for compact premium SUVs. Visit Porsche Santa Barbara where we’re proud to offer award-winning vehicles like the 2016 Porsche Macan.

Enjoy Industry-Leading Quality with the Porsche Macan

Porsche has outdone themselves with the 2016 Macan. The body is comprised of steel and aluminum offering the feel and efficiency of a lightweight vehicle. A Porsche representative claimed, it “embodies sportiness, dynamism, and precision, together with an elegance and lightweight constructions.” Out of the fourteen categories J.D. Power examined for the Initial Quality Study, the Macan received five stars in eleven of them, with the lowest category still receiving three stars.

The 2016 Porsche Macan is available in either S or Turbo trim, both of which now come standard with all-wheel drive. Also, this luxury SUV comes equipped with a new development of Porsche Traction Management that shifts axle power from front to rear depending on cues from the available traction. Two all-aluminum engines are offered in the Macan. The Macan S is equipped with a 3.0L V-6 engine that pushes out 340 hp and a top speed of 156 mph, while the Macan Turbo has a 3.6L twin turbo V-6 that produces 400 hp and a top speed of 164 mph.

The interior of this vehicle is just as luxurious and ergonomically efficient as you would expect a Porsche to be. With leather upholstery for your comfort and cutting-edge technology for your safety and convenience, the 2016 Porsche Macan really does offer extraordinary quality.
