    Love the looks! Smiley 520km range is great too.

    The design language of Audi EV cars is a continuation of their ICE design, much easier to like. Not intentionally overly futuristic like other brands are doing it. 

    Still...all German Tesla competitors have one big issue all together, with a few (expensive) exceptions: They suck when it comes to straight line performance. In times when Tesla prepares the Plaid and Plaid+, I expected a little bit more from Audi and Co.. Smiley

     

    Look here: Tesla X Plaid "SUV".

    Rear drum brakes selection doesn't fit with the luxury car image.

    Previously explained in detail of the sound engineering reason for sealed, maintenance free rear drum brakes.  Most drivers have little idea of how their braking system works so this is rendered moot.

    Audi introduced the new A6 e tron concept at Auto Shanghai today.  It previews the new Premium Platform Electric technology Audi codeveloped with Porsche.  This video link provides the best coverage of the new EV.  https://youtu.be/35ux4FhW-zg

    You need to wait to see the reliability of VAG products. For the ID.3 I have read some negative experiences.

    Regarding drum brakes I don't have the time to look into the justification altough I know in the past VAG has said many things that was mostly marketing. One thing I know rear drum brakes don't look good.

    More reliable than many other manufacturers’ products.  The problem the drum brakes solve is more significant to the driver than aesthetics. 


    Re: Audi Q4

    I had a very bad ownership experience with a VAG VR6 product years bank. All the Italian cars combined that we owned did not produce so many issues. And I am not comparing with Toyota or Honda cars we had.


    Re: Audi Q4

    One individual’s observations fifteen years ago is an adequate reference point for an automakers selling 10 million units annually?  


    Re: Audi Q4

    Τhere are many stories about VAG reliability on the ID.3 but other products as well. Remember the 1.4 engine with turbo & compressor? The first FSI engines? High oil consumption in a series of 1.8 & 2.0 turbo FSI engines that required new pistons? This went on for years. Tens of thousands of owners were affected.


    Re: Audi Q4

    Speaking of Audi: I am in the process of getting my boy the current A3 sedan, got a very nice offer, sedans seem to have some sorts of factory incentive in Germany, they do not sell well.

    Long story short: The interior looks amazing in this price class and the 150 hp mild hybrid engine is surprisingly agile (more than enough for a beginner without overwhelming him), the chassis is as sporty as it can get in dynamic mode and steering is very direct. Fun to drive car, perfect for my son who wants to have a sporty driving feel without me worrying that he is going to kill himself. angry

    Perfect upmarket automobile for the young novice driver.  Not that many years ago, 150 bhp was considered more than adequate for much larger automobiles, especially in the States.

    Again, while newsworthy this is statistically immaterial compared with overall production numbers of Volkswagen Group.  Oil consumption issues typically relate to break-in period protocols; however, manufacturing defects relating to ring tension do occur.  Compared with issues from some other automakers, these incidents are negligible.  Ford, for example, produced millions and millions of units with defect automatic transmission detents.  Hyundai and Kia currently have an issue with engine defects that cause fire.

    Thank you. The best part: He really loves it. Not something his old man forces him to drive. Smiley

    Excellent choice. You must be proud. 
     

    car nut seems to be part of some vw cult. Lol. Can you imagine if Tesla had so many issues and I made excuses?  There is not even an Elon at VW worth worshiping - or is there?

    That would explain why I am awaiting delivery of a 2022 Cadillac CT5 V Blackwing with a six speed manual.
