Just the other day my editor and I were having a nice chat about how good cars are always the result of the best compromise. And, before you get all hot under the collar, there’s a lot of truth in that statement. It isn’t always the most powerful car with the biggest engine that emerges as the most fantastic car in the world. Nor is it the car with the stiffest suspension (which traditional wisdom dictates should result in the best handling) that ends up being the most enjoyable. Or, conversely, the car with the softest suspension (and, therefore, what should be the best ride quality to most people’s imaginations) doesn’t always end up being the most comfortable. The most comfortable and enjoyable car is usually the one where all these attributes come together to create a homogeneous unit, ergo – the best compromise. It’s actually a fine line that the manufacturer has to walk, and few walk this line as well as Audi do.
