Fantastic, elegant interior, including beautiful wood trim, great perforated leather on steering wheel, high quality switch gear
Quattro! -- a must in the northern midwest. Powerful exhaust note. Great Sport mode in 6-speed automatic tranny. Top notch control with Tiptronic paddle shifters. More than enough power for passing.
Excellent for cruising but lateral support is sorely lacking for cornering. Needs power & memory for the tilt/telescope steering wheel. Good view out of and around vehicle.
Automatic headlamps, climate control. Acoustic parking & folding mirrors are useful, especially for parallel parking. Bluetooth is nearly required with hands-free laws. Steering wheel controls double for BT phone control. Remote windows down w/ hack.
The brakes "bite!" hard and are reassuring but the brake dust is excessive. Side pillar air bags. Top notch safety scores. ... but the car is terribly front heavy and the stock Pirelli P6 tires are horrible!
