Review

Despite its more sporty aesthetic, the Audi E-tron Sportback drives in a very similar manner to the regular E-tron SUV, but that’s no bad thing. No, it isn't as sharp as the Jaguar I-Pace in corners, but it is extremely hushed and most versions do a great job of soaking up bumps, while the interior is lavish. As a bonus, it remains usefully practical, too, even with that heavily raked roof. The only real disappointment is the range between charges.

get the best price

Launch Edition cars are too expensive to recommend, despite getting a panoramic glass roof, a black styling pack and various additional driver assistance systems.

This version of the E-tron Sportback hits the sweet spot between performance (0-62mph in 5.7sec) and range (247 miles), plus it’s more comfortable than the pricier S version. Just bear in mind that the Jaguar I-Pace is faster still and can go even farther on a charge.
