Audi has been running a full-court assault on the luxury market for more than a decade now. The German marquee has gone from junior member to full-fledged player in that time mostly on the backs of their mass-market cars. What Audi calls their B-segment we would know as the A4, A5, and their many variants. Audi recently brought the DrivingScene team out to the only unburned Colorado mountains left to test the full line-up of 2013 B-Segment models and they brought an old friend with them – the widely missed American allroad. Keep reading to find out how Audi’s 2013 model line-up is taking shape, and how we scared an editor from another magazine into closing his eyes as we four-wheel drifted up a mountain pass…

What we have here is the best car in the world. Don’t be skeptical, follow me here – the car you see above ticks all the boxes for the enthusiast searching for their next ride. There are 7 simple reasons why you should lust after this car. 1st of all, it’s a wagon. Wagons pack all the cargo capacity of a truck/van but still have the road hugging manners of a sedan. The perfect marriage of form and function. Secondly, it’s a tuned Audi which is one of english’s most perfect sentences ever. The stock 2.0 turbo has a chipped ECU and an upgraded intake and exhaust system. I can tell you from firsthand experience that the exhaust note is aggressive without becoming overbearing at speed.
