Audi introduced it's Quatro today joining Jag's I-Pace and Mercede's E-Tron in the coming in the next year or two to your garage. I've looked at them out of curiosity just to see what's up. IMO, the I-Pace is a step ahead of the other two — all are fine first efforts — but they ain't catching Tesla any time soon. The I-Pace is the only one that is comparable to the standard MX in quickness. None offer anywhere near as much storage. I think the interior electronics interface — read touchscreens — is clunky compared to what Tesla offers. Lots of hunting through menus, uninspired graphics. The Europeans seem to want to put little screens all over the front console. They're big on leather where Tesla has gone to the synthetic leather -- mine has real leather seats, btw. All are sized to function better on narrow European streets, and there they do make more sense for their home base than the MX does. There's nothing wrong with any of these SUVs, but inspiring? Uh uh. Not IMO.
Welcome to the party, boys, but you still have some work to do.
