Most under-rate Plugin-Hybrid

by AMSchroemi from San Rafael, CA on Tue Aug 21 2018

?I have only owned it for two weeks but so far am very happy with it. Comfortable and roomier than it looks. This is the second plugin hybrid I have owned and preferred the Audi.

Happy but...

by Calcreole from Culver City on Wed Aug 22 2018

Previously leased the Audi A3 2016 model and have been a happy camper but with a 2018 update comes some pluses and big minuses. Not sure when it happened but Audi has also incorporated an engine start stop feature. At a stop light the engine will down throttle or go idol until you push on the gas. There's a little pause as the engine wakes before you accelerate. Supposedly it's to save fuel but it earns them the most annoying feature award for 2018. There's no way to permanently disable the feature without warranty issues. There is a button to deactivate it but it must be pressed everytime you start the vehicle. I only found out about this after the purchase... Really lame! Had higher expectations from Audi. Not sure if they were forced into this decision or what. The other negative mark about this model is the trunk space seems smaller than my 2016. Feels like the trunk floor has been raised. One more minor change was the elimination of the collision sensor button. Was a nice to have feature you could turn on in tight spaces and tall curb situations. This years model gets some pluses. I like the design refinements to the head and rear lights, wheel design, and the cool door lighting feature that projects the Audi logo onto the ground. Despite the start stop fiasco I'm looking forward to enjoying my lease and hope Audi learns some valuable lessons for their future vehicles.
