With the economy still in shambles despite months of positive news on Wall Street, Audi recognizes that buyers are looking for value in their automotive purchases, even at the Audi R8's price point. Accordingly, Audi packs the 2010 Audi R8 with high-end features, and even the $150,000-plus Audi R8 5.2 finds a way to justify its price tag.

The 2010 Audi R8 is available in two trim levels, which are primarily distinguished by the engine that sits behind the cockpit. However, the two models also have a few feature differences; Kelley Blue Book points out that both versions of the Audi R8 get "Bluetooth hands-free phone connectivity and Homelink," but the V-10 version also upgrades with a standard navigation system and real-time traffic, along with an impressive 465-watt Bang & Olufsen stereo. Cars.com reports that V-8 buyers can upgrade to the "navigation system with Audi's Multi Media Interface," but ConsumerGuide warns that the MMI "complicates many adjustments" to the audio system. TheCarConnection.com's own editors, however, find the navigation system relatively easy to program, and the 3D graphics are both intuitive and aesthetically impressive.

The 2010 Audi R8 lineup offers three major options packages, according to Kelley Blue Book, which lists them as the "Premium Package," "Leather Package," and the "Enhanced Leather Package." The Premium Package bundles a hill-start-assist feature with Audi's parking assist technology, while the two leather packages add varying degrees of plush Nappa leather to the interior. None of the packages is available on the Audi R8 5.2, since the included equipment is already standard on the V-10 model of Audi's supercar.

Conclusion

The 2010 Audi R8 offers features that are competitive or superior to those in many GT cars in its price range.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
