    CarWale's Take

    Good Things
    • Brand value
    • Massive battery pack eases range anxiety
    • Long list of equipment on the inside
    • New Audi flagship is massive, imposing and sporty
    • Best equipment from the carmaker currently
    • Underpinnings and powertrain shared with Urus
    Could be Better
    • Available in a single powertrain/trim choice
    • Low ground clearance is a menace
    • Second-row space, not the most spacious
    • Expensive because it takes CBU route in India
    • Limited powertrain options
