So if you had the choice now to choose any Etron again. Full refund on the current car plus free credit to choose any model and variant from the whole range of Etron’s sportback and normal.
What would you choose including colour, wheels etc?

Even though I randomly fell into this particular build, I probably wouldn't change a thing. It's the Audi E-Tron Prestige SUV, Siam Beige Metallic, Beige interior, and 21" wheels. Except I'd jump on the newer 2021 models with their increased range. Although if Audi does provide a retroactive update the older models, which they are "working on," even that may be a non-issue.

I like the unique color-changing beige exterior and the open feeling of the lighter interior. And with TX heat, lighter colors are great for keeping the vehicle cool. Normally I'd pass on larger wheels, but the range is still above EPA estimates, and they look great. Plus, that SUV profile adds some practicality.

Now ask me in a few years when there are even more models on the lot, and we'll see!

I should of said mine!

Catalunya Red (love that colour now)
Vorsprung (Uk) spec model.

That's it for me, it literally has everything, you can only add:

1: Spare wheel (hardly a design) adds nothing but peace of mind.
2: I think nets on the back of the front seats.

I wish the Vorsprung was out when I bought the launch edition, but then again it was just released. Hence the name the launch edition!

Personally I don't understand the appeal of sportsback SUV. I get it on a sedan like an A7. For an SUV/cross over you lose way too much utility from the slopped roofline. In addition, I don't find the shape sleeker than the regular version. My teenage son who is used to sitting in the back of a Volvo XC90 which is taller and has bigger window, complains about feeling claustrophobic in the back of the eTron (regular). It will be worse in the sportsback.

I’m in the same camp with the Sportback version, likely impacted by the fact that I’m 6’7” tall haha. If I could do it all over again, I’d get a 2021 e-tron S. I’m really starting to come around to the Navarra Blue Metallic color with the S sport wheel package and orange brake calipers (I dream about the orange brake calipers) with matrix headlights (assuming all of these are options in the US).
