HERNDON, Virginia — Audi has announced pricing on the 2014 Audi A6, A7 and Q5 TDI diesel vehicles.

The 2013 Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class, which competes with the Audi A7 TDI, is not offered in a diesel variant here. Audi is calling the A7 TDI "the first clean diesel five-door coupe."

Diesel vehicles are becoming a more attractive alternative to consumers as diesel fuel prices fall more in line with gasoline prices. The AAA Daily Fuel Gauge Report on Wednesday pegged the average price for a gallon of diesel fuel in the U.S. at $3.85 versus $3.63 for gasoline.
