On the rail and quick acceleration
By ex-JPN-ITA driver on
2002 Audi allroad quattro AWD 4dr Wagon (2.7L 6cyl Turbo 6M)
The great satisfaction after one year ride. This purchase was the compromise of a sporty sedan and a SW, and perfectly satisfied the both. Remember, this is a near 2 tons weight of SUV-like wagon, but you can still drive it like a sport car on hwy or pwy. It goes exactly on the rail in almost any situation even with heavy rain or few inches of snow. Overtaking acceleration is excellent. (Use premium gas, that makes a difference!) The interior is chic and elegant with no complaints (for extra cup holders, use the openable sidepocket or the one under the rear seat). The build quality is definitely better than the same generation A6. Overall, the long lasting state of the art.
Overtaking acceleration, road holding, manual 6 spd, luxury equipments (enough for me since my priority is fun to drive), quite ride if you drive gently, inner quality and power rather than appearance. Turbo lag; I like it.
Consumption; use 6/5 gear, Shift shock; use 1 to 3 or 4 (2 to 4 or 5) possible thanks to the amazing wide torque rage, Tire noise; dramatically reduced after changed to MICHELIN Energy Plus, Wrong alarm for tire pressure; I don’t care, this is not a Japanese car after all (though I ‘m one of them).
