We’ve already seen the Audi e-tron Sportback in countless reviews, videos, in-person photos and interviews. If you’re a frequent reader of ours, you’d know about as much as you possibly need to know about the latest all-electric SUV from Audi. However, no one goes into quirkier detail than Doug DeMuro, so if you’ve been itching to learn even more about it, check out his latest video.
In typical Doug DeMuro fashion, he really digs into the nitty-gritty of the Audi e-tron Sportback, showing off features that typically aren’t shown in most video reviews. For instance, he shows off the charging port, which has a unique opening mechanism and the funky shift lever. Admittedly, the latter has been discussed quite a bit, ever since the initial e-tron launch, but it’s still something worth noting.
DeMuro also shows off some features that aren’t typically shown but are helpful for potential customers to know. For instance, he shows off the cargo storage underneath the trunk floor, which is surprisingly big. He also shows off the small cargo area under the hood, where the engine typically would be. When you combine all of that with the car’s existing trunk, it’s actually a surprisingly practical crossover, despite its sporty roofline.
He also points out something we’re happy to see and that’s back seat headroom. When we first saw the Audi e-tron Sportback at the LA Auto Show, we had the chance to sit in the back and reported that it boasted more headroom than its body shape would suggest. Audi has done a great job of carving out rear headroom in the backseat of the e-tron Sportback, better than the likes of BMW and Mercedes-Benz, and DeMuro shows that off in this new video.
Overall, it seems like DeMuro likes the Audi e-tron Sportback. It has its faults, sure, and he isn’t shy about mentioning them, but it’s a good car overall. It just needs more range but we already knew that.
