Another gorgeous design and another sweet-driving machine from Audi. No wonder they're setting new sales records all over the world, including the US.
It may cost less than its competitors but with only one engine option and deplorable reliability, I doubt it will make much of a dent in the already overpopulated look alike offerings from other mfgs.
