This luxury brand is known for technology and style as much as its performance, luxurious interiors, and Quattro all-wheel-drive system. Nearly every model is a solid performer with a high-grade interior. The A4, A6, and A8 sedans either top their ratings categories or are among the top performers. The redesigned Q7 SUV is the highest-scoring SUV in our tests, and the Q5 SUV, and the TT coupe are both solid performers. The entry-level A3 lacks the expected content for the price, although the Q3 SUV better delivers on its luxury promise. Reliability has been solidly above average as of late, except for the below-average A3, and most models do well in our owner satisfaction survey.
