With it’s motto advancement through technology (Vorsprung durch Technik), Audi has never fail to amuse anyone that drove one.
It’s simple, functional, yet elegant lines from the exterior to the interior of the cars. Many thousands man hours are spent into making sure every single parts of the cars are properly designed, in place, and logical in use. From Audi’s simplicity approach in the dashboard design, to the satisfying clicks of every single buttons in the cars; all those meticulously executed buildmanship evoked a sense or regal and matured vehicle for a grown up.
The love for an Audi might not be a love on first sight for many due to the simplicity in the exterior. But it will grow on you and the love will build over time especially when you drive one.
I am very privileged to be given a chance to fall in love with an Audi, courtesy of Audi Malaysia. I walked around the showroom and chat up, errr, snapped some gorgeous shots of the cars. And to add an icing to the cake, an extensive test drive was warranted and sealed my attention to the Audi – Especially the Quattro technology which is extremely unique in the car industry. With Quattro, optimal power is distributed to each wheel (4 of them), resulting in confidence and inspiring handling even in less than perfect driving conditions.
For those technically inclined readers, see video below for the explanation on why this technology is extremely powerful in aiding the handling of the car (one of the best I have experienced).
For those that prefer the awesome advertisement, see below.
For the purpose of demonstration of this technology prowess, Audi Malaysia has arranged the Q3, Q5 and Q7 at my disposal to go through a series of designed obstacles.
To add to the excitement and challenge, the heaven opened up, thunder storm ensured and I rub my hands in glee. This is the best time to put the quattro claims to the test!
The rain stopped when I reached the test area. I put the Q family of cars to swerve and brake around the traffic cones at 80 km/h with slippery road surface. Not a sweat from the cars. Well composed and I am fully in control, I am impressed by the lack of rolling of the cabins while swerving the cars.
A series of other tests includes 25 degrees tilt, 30 degree gradient hill climb and seesaw further inked my impression on these remarkable human engineering pieces.
True and behold, Audi has lived up its motto for pushing advancement through technology. I have never enjoyed any drives so immensely engaged and at the same time pampered by the luxury touch of the car cabin. Well done Audi!
