2022 Audi Q4 Sportback e-tron Family Review with Child Seat Installation
The 2022 Audi Q4 Sportback e-tron quattro is not your typical family vehicle, but it definitely has the potential to become your next family rig. With its luxurious design, ample space for cargo and passengers, and advanced technology features, this electric SUV is a solid choice for families looking to make the switch to electric.
Let's start with the driving experience. The Q4 Sportback is powered by a dual-motor setup with Audi’s quattro all-wheel-drive. The electric powertrain provides a total of 295 horsepower and 339 lb.-ft. of torque, making it powerful enough for everyday use. The ride is quiet and smooth, but with enough power to accelerate quickly when needed, making merging onto the highway or passing slower vehicles as easy as a stab of the right pedal.
The Q4 Sportback has an EPA-estimated range of 241 miles, thanks to its 82 kWh battery pack. This is more than enough for most daily commutes and weekend trips, and with DC fast charging capabilities up to 150 kW, the Q4 can recharge from 5% to 80% in just 36 minutes. The onboard charger allows for convenient home charging, too.
Inside, the Q4 Sportback is a luxurious space with plenty of room for your family and your gear. The 26.1 cubic feet of rear cargo space is more than in the back of an Escalade, and the 54.4 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats folded make the Q4 a practical option for families or those with an active lifestyle. The heated front seats with a two-person memory setting for the driver’s seat make this a great option for multiple drivers. The 10.25-inch Audi Digital Cockpit instrument cluster is easy to read and does not overwhelm you with information, and the 10.1-inch Audi MMI touchscreen infotainment system has the clearest screen of any vehicle tested, offering easy access to vehicle information and entertainment options.
A nice feature of the Q4 Sportback is its adaptive cruise control, which can be a lifesaver for parents trying to navigate traffic with young children in the car vying for their parent’s attention. The panoramic sunroof is a nice touch, and the LED headlights and taillights with sequential rear turn signals are both stylish and functional. Inside, LED lighting can be controlled from up front, or back in the back, which made shining a light on Tucker while keeping it dark up front extremely easy.
Of course, the Q4 Sportback is not a cheap vehicle. Starting at $52,700 and with our test model coming in at $60,790, it is definitely a premium price point. However, it is important to remember that the Q4 Sportback offers a combination of luxury and performance that should hit the sweet-spot for many drivers.
Ultimately, the 2022 Audi Q4 Sportback e-tron quattro is a solid choice for families looking to make the switch to electric. With its sleek design, ample space for cargo and passengers, and advanced technology features, it is a practical option for everyday use. While it may be on the pricey side, it is definitely worth considering for those who value luxury, performance, and sustainability.
