Likes &


  • A singular appeal
  • Supercharged V-6 almost matches V-8 output
  • Eight-speed automatic on board, across the board
  • Lighter-weight body translates into crisp handling
  • Austerity be damned: spend as much as you want


  • The one percent of the look that doesn't work
  • Shortcomings include head room
  • Glitzy-looking trim inside
  • Lacks one or two of the very latest tech features


  • Conservative looks that will last
  • Fabulously flawed cabin
  • Seats have long-distance comfort
  • Twin-turbo V-8s are choicest powertrains
  • Audi Connect is Tomorrowland for car geeks


  • Short-wheelbase car short on knee room
  • Steering feels heavy in Dynamic mode
  • Audio's multiple, confusing controls
  • Interface overload?
