Four stars for the Audi Q4 Sportback
AUTOCAR’s British colleagues have already had the opportunity to test the new Audi Q4 e-tron Sportback. It is the version that we could define as a “coupé” of the SUV of the German manufacturer (here the presentation), built on the same MEB platform from which the Volkswagen ID.4 and the Skoda Enyaq iV. In this case, the test involved the top-of-the-range version “50“, With battery from 76,6 kWh (net capacity) and declared autonomy of almost 500 km. The judgment is definitely positive, both for the dynamic performance (just over 6 ″ in 0-100 km / h acceleration) and for the quality of the interiors. “The Q4 E-tron Sportback is well thought out and well crafted“, Writes the journalist in conclusion Greg Kable. “It is not tremendously engaging to drive, but in the 50 and-tron top of the range, offers high performance, responsive handling and a well-finished ride. Its main attractions, however, are the spacious interiors, the accommodations generous by class standards and, at first glance, the overall quality. It is a nice car that feels at home in the city as well as out on the open road“. The final grade, however, is of 4 stars, one step below the maximum of 5.
