Air conditioning vents still feature a rotatable bezel which shuts individual vents off with a reassuring ‘click’

No prizes here, but Audi does build great interiors. Tactile feel of materials are top-notch, as compared to the A3’s BMW and Mercedes counterparts. No simulated wood please…

A very large manly ball of a gearshift lever would be one of the first things you encounter when seated in the driver’s seat. Air conditioning vents still feature a rotatable bezel which shuts individual vents off with a reassuring ‘click’.

The new steering wheel design is reminiscent of the one found in the R8, an attractive 3-spoke design, with similar button placements, inclusive of a programmable “*” button. Entry level car, yes, but you do get paddle shifters behind the wheel. The instrument binnacle is neat, with large dials, and in-between, a small portrait format display which is customisable for various types of drive information.

The test car’s retractable infotainment unit might not be powered by NVIDIA, like its bigger siblings, but does a fine job in displaying all essentials, like radio channels, mobile connectivity and car settings. The controls for the MMI (Multi Media Interface) is simplified a little, but without losing any functionality, featuring the usual rotary knob, two rocker type switches and four buttons.

Our test car came with leather seats, which were comfortable and supportive. The driver’s side unit features electrical adjusters and lumbar support, but without memory settings, while the front passenger makes do with manual adjusters. Rear passengers might find legroom a bit of a squeeze, with the backs of the front seats intruding a little too much. Rear seats are decently comfortable, but without an armrest. I’m beginning to think that this car was built either for 2 or for a young family.

Boot space is a respectable 425 litres, and rear seats fold down in 60:40 fashion to accommodate more. I know, the Jetta has more at 510 litres.

But the “four rings” does offer more in terms of interior refinement. But how much more is enough?
