I think yes and no. For people who just want 1 car and live in areas where it snows, having the optional AWD in a performance car is nice to have. Iíll hold out final thoughts until the car comes out. It given the new design leaks, I donít see this being a great car.

Hopefully Iím wrong though.

Well if you aren’t into Audi’s yeah and the RS models IMO are overpriced when you consider RS4/5 performance is in line with the new M340i xDrive. Audi’s TT V6 is no match for the B58 or S58.

rwd + snow tires > awd and all/season or summer tires though

they just want to cry that they need awd for the snow, none of them will actually use the car in the snow or change out the tires.

Ive driven my rwd car with snow tires through snow higher than the front splitter and did just fine.

AWD + Snow Tires = fun. I'm seeing more and more people equipping AWD vehicles on snow tires in the winter.

Seeing WRX's on summer tires puttering around is a sad sight.
