The car is a beautiful style and handsome even 4 years after its birth. Interior is top notch and I even prefer it to the 2012 loaner A6 I am driving this week.
Fuel economy is outstanding and the car just glides at 90mph.
However, the CVT transmission is quirky and I would opt for the Quattro next time around.
Car is sluggish off the mark and much of that is around the CVT. I had it in twice this year for rough idle and jerky driving when cold. Also, Audi refuses to update their software in a timely manner for the Media Center and is behind the curve of technology despite what the commercials tell you. Remote doesn't roll down windows and no streaming music from your phone to Bluetooth.
Ride, trunk space, quietness and quality of cabin interior.
Get rid of the CVT and provide media software updates for your current loyal owners (its called building affinity in the marketing business).
No streaming Bluetooth?
Seriously - in a $50,000 car? My nephew's 2009 Mazda 3 streams BT.
Come on man!
