It's probably down to how the electronic handbrake integrates with STronic box. On a B8 with hill hold assist you'd never need use the handbrake, it just comes on and off automatically....wondered why they got rid of park? What would you select when you're done, Neutral?
Forgot to mention it's a manual, so neutral (unless I'm parked on a hill!). I guess an Stronic would be the same - just stick it in neutral.And leave the stick in... Reverse if you've just reverse parked, Neutral? Drive? Just curious.
Steering wheel optional
I will have plenty of time for it to grow on me in the years it will take until the B9 depreciates within my reach.

Sad the 3.0 Tdi V6 is only 208HP 400NM and a 0-60 of 6.4
B8.5 version is 245HP 510NM and a 0-60 of between 5.9-6.1 depending on who you quote....
Is that not a step backwards?
Also 2.0Tdi Quattro is listed as 177/190 yet the non Quattro is 220?
Could not see that on the B9 build on the Audi site. Hope your right.There's a 272 V6 TDI too I think. I bet that'll be lovely... and quick!
Yes it is. As I understand it, it has to be a twin-scroll turbo so should still be as smooth and efficient as a biturbo. Audi is using a tiptronic gearbox so there will be some losses due to the fluid torque convertor, but the car should be 75kg lighter than the B8 and hence Audi are quoting a slightly lower 0-60 time.And isn't the S4 a single turbo?
