A clean and anonymous evolution of Audi's ground-breaking streamlined 1980s style.. one last time before they got out the curves and knocked it out of the park with the B5 A4. In `S' form there's the cool little silver-red badges and aggressive flares on the front fenders, but car still has a dentist vibe. Stealth missile, but one that gets you 1/10th the instant respect of a '90s BMW M.
A wonderful interior with good bolstered seats, wonderful connection to the road and the engine. A true performance saedan in the best German and Audi traditions.
neutral steering, good weight balance, 50/50 quattro system. This car feels so wonderfly agile.
The turbo is a fantastic mill, making jet engine noises as the boost kicks in. Like a classic Saab turbo but less laggy.
No folding back seat, cup holders buried under armrest, no trunk cargo net..
