The Audi Quattro is the most suitable for family duties out of Audi's athletic collection of tech-loaded luxury cars and SUVs.

The Quattro retains the fun-to-drive quality that distinguishes an Audi from its competitors despite having three rows of seats and a little staid design.

Both of the two turbocharged engines available to buyers—a 248 horsepower four-cylinder or a 335 horsepower V-6—offer sufficient pep for anything from city errands to highway cruising

Although the sportier variants in the lineup make full use of the optional four-wheel steering system, Audi's Quattro all-wheel drive system is standard.

Some of the top three-row luxury SUVs now on the market compete with the Audi Quattro, including the BMW X5, Mercedes-Benz GLE, and Volvo XC90.

The executive package, which includes the 2020 model's Cold Weather, Warm Weather, and All-Weather packages, is now an option for the mid-range Premium Plus.

The centre consoles and armrests on prestige versions are now coated in leather, and heated rear seats are included as standard.

While adding a new turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 that produces 335 horsepower using a 48-volt hybrid system, Audi preserved the old 248-hp turbocharged four-cylinder.

Despite its size, the Quattro seems low and limber, like a pumped-up sport waggon, when the optional performance tyres are mounted on 21-inch wheels.

The Audi Quattro is unexpectedly enjoyable to drive down a winding country road because of the optional air suspension's flexibility and the increased agility of four-wheel steering.

Unsurprisingly, the V-6 engine has lower fuel efficiency. The EPA rates fuel efficiency as 17 mpg in the city, 21 mpg on the highway, and 18 mpg overall.

The model we tested, which achieved 26 mpg on our 200-mile highway loop, should give similar performance from the four-cylinder Quattro.

The Quattro's cabin is a distinctive place with its modern, minimalist design combined with a tonne of technology, outstanding comfort, and high build quality.

The interior of the Quattro is highlighted by gorgeous materials and design, a clever control layout, and plush seats with plenty of support and adjustment.

We could fit 25 of our carry-on baggage in the Audi Quattro with all the seats folded, and we anticipate that the 2021 model will achieve the same feat.
