“Highway-style cruising across the valley below the mist-shrouded Tetons was quiet and comfortable in the Prestige-level car. With that package, you get acoustic glass; when driven back to back with a car lacking it, there is a slight but noticeable difference with in-cabin noise.
“The interior is minimalist and lovely. The two versions came with the phenomenal virtual cockpit and Audi’s updated MMI system. As in previous versions, the system allows you to use the scroll wheel as a touchpad to draw characters for navigation points or when searching your contacts list. The updated system with a new scroll wheel is better than previous ones we’ve tried, and the touchpad is more responsive without being overly sensitive to inputs. The center 8.3-inch TFT screen is clear and bright, and the system is simple enough to adjust while sitting in the driver or passenger seat. Of course, there’s Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
“Power is readily available, linear and smooth. Audi says 60 mph arrives in 5.9 seconds, quick for this 3,825-pound car. We could have used just a bit more oomph during overtaking though, as Wyoming’s passing sections are short and there was a surprising amount of traffic to negotiate.” -- Autoweek
