The V60 hits 60 mph 0. On our 120-mile evaluation loop, we achieved an admirable 34 mpg in a 328d wagon. The local used car dealership graciously allowed me to mess around with different configurations after I test drove it. I love the car, although it is pricey when compared to the sedan, due to higher base price and lower residuals and lower holiday incentives. I would probably limit my search to models with the sport seats from here out. Driving Impressions Although the latest 3 Series has lost a bit of the previous car's hard-edged athleticism, the reality is that this car still delivers the best all-around driving experience in the entry-level luxury sedan class.
But in both, shifts are fast, smooth and on time. We don't have estimations for hip room, yet expect similarly focused figures. The whole thing just felt soft and bland. In terms of looks, the Audi A4 is the newer car of the two, as the current F30 generation 3 Series debuted in 2012, and it shows immediately. If rear-seat accommodations are a priority, you won't find a more spacious backseat in the entry-luxury car class. In terms of performance, both cars are quite similar.
The 335i sedan has a turbocharged 3. All V60 T6 models emphasize speed and sport. Most of all, we were geeked to discover that the rear glass opens separately from the hatch to allow long items to pass through. It kept going in snow above the floor level; you could hear the snow swishing under the floor and see the shaped track behind. If anything they went backwards. I am really leaning towards the Sportwagon like the looks way better than A4 wagon, and slightly more that Allroad , but damn it's really getting up there in price.
To me, the 328i and 335i are nowhere near what they had been, in any measure. The Audi A4 definitely has the cabin for a modern generation. However, the Allroad is simply a boring car to drive. Sedans come in 320i, 328i, 328d, 335i and ActiveHybrid 3 trim levels. The base-model front seats are comfortable and supportive, while those in the sport packages are even more so. But only without the filtered steering.
In fact, what you need is a sedan that makes a powerful statement while still fitting in all the necessary gadgets and useful tools that will keep your busy life on the fast track to the top. By the way, add the dynamic traction package if you can afford. I plan on custom ordering mine as well, as I have 5 payments left on my current lease, and for once don't want to compromise on anything just to help dealer inventory, including color. The 328i wagon is 400 pounds lighter than a. Engine and transmission issues non stop, electronics, mirrors.
But perhaps this is the best combination of performance and efficiency within the entire 3 Series lineup. In fact, aside from the wagon body style, the two cars are incredibly similar. Go for the 328 wagon, and you will not regret the choice. But next go around xDrive would be a brilliant feature. Because I'm quite content with the car that I have now and I'd be willing to sacrifice a little bit of speed for the Audi but do you think that amount would be just too much? Of course, handling is relative, and the 3-series operates in its own frame of reference. Moving to the front seats, the Audi Allroad offers the same magic mix of materials, quality and design that keep Audi interiors at the top of the rankings.
Just looking at other options and am curious about opinions from the forum. The only sore spots—literally—are the seats, which are wide, flat, and firm. The 3 Series comes with some of the most powerful and fuel-efficient four- and six-cylinder engines in this class and arguably the nicest interior furnishings. The answer: right under our butts. The is the cargo-toting variant of the 23-time.
Reasonably low and horizontal waist line, D-pillar that doesn't introduce blind spots, and a decent rear window. However, the Allroad is simply a boring car to drive. The halogen lights are terrible. The 3-series, however, has fairly similar handling and feel for the wagon and sedan both of which I ended up preferring over the Audi offerings. The Dynamic Handling package bundles the sportier suspension tuning from the M Sport line with variable-ratio steering.
Style is and always has been a very subjective topic, but for my money, the Audi lends itself more to a seamless and integrated driving experience. Clean and elegant, yet clearly sporty, nice visibility 360 and I bet the interior is bright and pleasant. Admittedly I haven't done as much research into this car, although I like the way it looks and may be interested depending on lease comparisons. It feels off the pace, and the numbers confirm it: Sixty mph passes in 6. Just go drive a few and see which one feels the most comfortable, has the buttons and instruments where you can reach and see them, and you don't hit your head when you get in.
