Automobile Magazine had a Four Seasons A6 when this current-generation car first came out, and I have to say that I like this version a lot better. I remember our long-term example having a brittle ride over broken pavement, for which I figured the optional eighteen-inch wheels were at least partly culpable. Well, this car rides on nineteens, and I was impressed with the suspension's ability to stoically absorb a bad-road assault and yet transmit none of the shock to the cabin. At appears that, as far as the A6 is concerned, Audi chassis engineers didn't just launch it and leave it.

Like Mr. Lorio, I gauged this A6 in the context of our long-departed long-term A6, and I was impressed. Audi's new 300-hp, 3.0-liter supercharged V-6 clearly has no problem propelling the A6 through town or on the interstate. As in the bodacious new Audi S4, which uses a more powerful blown 3.0-liter V-6, the supercharger isn't noisy or distracting but creates plenty of power without killing fuel economy.

I still am not sold on Audi's technology-infested cabin. Just because technology allows designers to do certain things, like pair the fan speed and temperature and HVAC to one knob, doesn't mean they should. Other quirks, like the center-console-mounted volume knob make no sense at all. Yes, there is a redundant control on the steering wheel, but, silly me, I still reach for the radio unit, since that's how every other car I've ever been in is designed. Of course, other automakers are pulling similar foolishness these days, but I somehow always expect everything to work better in an Audi just because it all looks so good.

It's interesting to read David Zenlea's complaint about the location of the volume knob, because in our Four Seasons review of the 2005 Audi A6, we declared that placement to be a brilliant piece of ergonomic design. Sure, if you don't drive an Audi every day you might have a hard time finding the control, but with familiarity you'll see that its placement is exactly where your right hand naturally falls. For me, the placement if perfect, but to each his own, I suppose.
