Audi’s 2020 lineup might appear as an alphabetical maze of As, Ses, Rs, RSes and Qs further complicated by digit nomenclature and endless body styles. But one thing is for certain, among this labeling mess, there is a whole bunch of amazing newcomers that position themselves as the market leaders in terms of technology, performance and unmatched interior luxury. Today we will dive into the upcoming roster from the German’s premium brand that is not okay with playing the second fiddle to its homeland arch rivals BMW and Mercedes.

If you are hungry for more new 2020 models, check out our playlist on the 2020 Lineups from All Major Global Automakers:
#1 2021 Audi RS Q8
2021 Audi RS Q8 comes powered by the same twin-turbo 4-liter V8 engine as Lambo Urus, but it has been detuned to net 600 horsepower.
#2 2020 Audi RS7 Sportback
Without a doubt, the second generation 2020 Audi RS7 can be labeled as one of the most anticipated Audis that will be arriving to the US market next year. Boasting for 1.6-inch wider body and large 21 or 22-in wheels, this high-performance version of the A7 Sportback definitely looks the part.
#3 2020 Audi RS Q3 and Audi RS Q3 Sportback
The second generation of the RS Q3 joing Audi’s performance SUV lineup in 2020 and adds a Sportback variant into the mix. The unlikely engine donor for this model was the Audi TT RS sports coupe, which lends its 2.5-liter 5-cylinder.
#4 2020 Audi e-tron Sportback
Just like any Audi these days, the electric eTron received a Sportback treatment and was turned into a coupe SUV. The new shape gave it a lower drag coefficient resulting in 6.2 miles range increase. Besides the sloping roofline, there aren’t any exterior differences between the two.
#5 2020 Audi A1 Citycarver
2020 Audi A1 Citycarver is a subcompact crossover based on the A1 Sportback, raising its ground clearance by 1.6 inches, getting more rugged exterior and riding on new wheels.
#6 2020 Audi S8
The 4th generation A8 lineup has arrived in 2019, accumulating the latest Audi’s tech, super-clever suspension and powertrains, but until now, it was missing a fully-fledged performance model. The new Audi S8 premiered for the 2020 model year. In the US, it is released only in the long wheelbase version, while Europe also gets a standard length S8.
#7 2020 Audi Q7
Still a part of the model’s second generation, the refreshed 2020 Audi Q7 is a stylish, no-compromise family vehicle that features the company’s latest tech.
#8 2020 Audi RS6 Avant
The first thing you need to know about the 2020 Audi RS6 Avant is not the trunk’s size, but the fact that it hides 600 ponies under the hood. It gets the upgraded 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8, hooked to the eight-speed Tiptronic automatic transmission and Quattro all-wheel-drive.
#9 2020 Audi A4/S4/RS4
The year 1994 marked the establishment of Audi’s solid representation in the mid-size executive segment, and the A4 model was the primary suspect for this success. Nowadays, the range of this car was expanded to include sedans and wagons under the Avant label.
#10 2020 Audi R8
2020 Audi R8 arrives to US with a mid-cycle refresh. The car gets 50% of the same components as the track-only R8 LMS, while its new design becomes even more aggressive. Under its hood remains the proven 5.2L V10, netting 562 or 602 hps.
