Overview

"Brilliant Car"

Exterior and Interior

The interior on these cars are brilliant, everything feels like it is made from high quality materials, the leather seats (optional) look and feel great, the exterior styling on the newer models looks great with the front splitter on the bottom of the car making it look very aggressive.

Performance and Economy

Economy is absolutely excellent for a car with 168bhp, you can get around 40-55MPG when driving very carefully. With a re-map you can also improve performance to around 200bhp and improve economy.

Like to Drive

Although it doesn't feel very sporty to drive you will probably be surprised with how well it handles, especially the Quattro versions. The diesel engine will put you right back in the seat as you accelerate through first and second gear. Being a turbo diesel it does seem to dump all of its power at once, but nether the less it is still fun to drive. <

Faults and Repairs

The DPF's on these cars can sometime clog up causing loss of performance, these can be cleared out by 'thrashing' the car about but you can also get the DPF removed by most tuning company's.
