Impeccable build quality inside and out puts rivals to shame

March 2011

Overall rating

3.5 out of 5 stars

Likes:

  • Impeccable build quality inside and out puts rivals to shame
  • Standard specification surprisingly generous
  • Engine is full of character and car is good to drive - for an Audi
  • Rear accommodation is generous enough to accommodate two adults in reasonable comfort

Gripes:

  • Limited production run and high price will put off some
  • Firm ride over surface imperfections can be tiresome
  • Be careful when parking - the car's alloy wheels look vulnerable
  • DSG semi-auto gearbox can prove hesitant when car is driven hard - manual mode is better
