Audi is one of today's most successful luxury brands, having effectively leveraged its minimalist styling and Quattro all-wheel-drive system into a compelling image of modernity and innovation. Its lineup consists of extremely competent vehicles, most of which—such as the A4 sedan and Q7 SUV—are so uniformly good at everything that they can almost feel cold and clinical. That criticism extends even to the sportier and more powerful S-line and RS variants such as the 444-hp RS5 Sportback four-door coupe and the R8 supercar. In spite of its forward-looking image, Audi is only now starting to add mild-hybrid powertrains throughout its lineup, and sells only one fully electric vehicle, the e-tron.
