I’m still getting to the low roof after coming from the Rav4. Things to out for: Make sure the change has been done, I it’s 5years or 180,000kms; If engine bay doesn’t appear to a scuttle plate don’t

The water off the windscreen is suppose to via the drain holes at the bottom of the compartment, but the drain holes can be to blocking and you’ll find the appearing in your front foot wells. Also for rust, although Audi’s is notorious for being good and has a finish, I have noticed appearing on the underside of the front arches and one of the door skins stone chip damage.

As far as economy goes, well I was a Rav4 petrol before and the ecomomy on the Avant is an improvement.
