The car wasn’t as quiet in the inside as I expected it to be. There was fair amount of road noise creeping in.
BHPian SR-71 recently shared this with other enthusiasts.
I got to drive the A4 45 TFSI Quattro for a fortnight stateside. Unfortunately due to an extremely tight schedule, I couldn’t do any long drives, but here are my observations based on a fortnight of urban and semi urban drives:
- First and foremost the nose heavy feeling that I experienced when test driving in Bangalore simply did not exist in the Quattro model. It was quiet nimble.
- The all black interiors while giving a cramped perception of the interiors were much better in look and feel.
- The seats had heavy side bolstering and I found that uncomfortable. Mind you am not on the heavy side.
- The boot was much more spacious than the 3 and C
- The Audi pre sense was quiet unnerving on many occasions.
- I actually had a difficult time getting in and out of the car. I don’t remember it being this bad in the Indian version.
- The car wasn’t as quiet in the inside as I expected it to be. There was fair amount of road noise creeping in.
- The 18 inchers and the deteriorating Bay Area roads meant the rides weren’t as smooth as ine would like.
- Despite a 250 bhp engine the car returned 28 MPG on quite a few occasions. Drive it hard and it easily dipped to 18.
- The car was quiet nimble to handle and made silly speeds before you know.
- The interiors are really well put and looks upscale. However the driver side door was creaking a lot despite just having 6000 miles on the odo.
Overall I enjoyed the car and it was definitely better than the Indian one. I will let the pictures do the rest of the talking:
