It’s a formidable vehicle, as perfectly finished as only an Audi can be and equipped with everything but the kitchen sink. The giant 240kW, twin-turbo, V8 diesel is awesome, the handling on tar superb and the comfort levels beyond comparison.
Stick it in D for drive and sail on; the auto gear changes are smooth and slick and despite its size and bulk (nearly two and a half tons on your bathroom scale!) it’s incredibly quick off the mark.
It passes wannabe boy racers in their souped-up jammies as if they’re standing still, much to my delight and their dismay. And I loved the double sized brake pedal, which will accommodate even the largest boot quite happily.
The kids, needless to say, adored the Audi.
