The front styling is a bit like the Phaeton, It has aerodynamic lines leading up to a nicely shaped rear end. The rear LED lamp clusters are flush with the bodywork and looks well designed.
The engine has smooth power delivery helped by lots of torque. I enjoy driving it on the highways in the Tiptronic mode.
It corners well with not too much roll. The suspension is firm and car rides well on smooth asphalt.
Materials & workmanship
The materials and workmanship is excellent and most people comment on it favourably. The leatherette interior is often mistaken for leather. The interior controls/door handles/switches are well designed and convey quality.
it is not very quiet at highway speeds. My car has wind noise around the A pillar and it is sometimes irritating.
Rear seat room & comfort
My two teenagers complain that the rear seat cushion is low and not very comfortable to sit on for long distances. the leg room is great.
The insurance is about average for a leased car. It is hard to say about the depreciation as the model is too new.
The dealership staff is very friendly and courteous. However they have not always dealt with a number of technical problems to my entire satisfaction.
