Is the Audi e-tron S the Best Looking Audi SUV?

When the Audi e-tron SUV first made its debut, it was well regarded as a handsome SUV. In fact, there were very few complaints about its styling, which was generally liked. The only real complaints came from the fact that it didn’t look like and electric SUV. Instead, it just looked like a nice Audi. With the Audi e-tron S, that’s not going to change but it does get even better looking and it could even be Audi’s best looking SUV.

 

Now that Audi has released the official e-tron S, along with its Sportback sibling, we get to see just how much sportier it looks. In fact, this might be one of the most comprehensive changes Audi has given an ‘S’ car in a long time, which is ironic given the fact that it’s an electric SUV.

 

 

Of the two newly released electric ‘S’ SUVs from Audi, it’s the standard e-tron S that looks best. Its traditional SUV body style is more handsome than the Sportback’s “Coupe” styling and it seems to fit its new sportier styling a bit better. It sits surprisingly low on much sportier looking five-spoke wheels and wide, meaty tires. Its wheel-track is also wider, making it look more athletic while also improving handling and cornering grip.

 

All of its exterior accents have turned black and look fantastic, especially in contrast to the blue finish on the car in these photos. The gold brake calipers are also a nice touch.

 

Inside, the Audi e-tron S is barely any different from its more traditional sibling, with the exception of new “S” sport seats and a three-spoke steering wheel. Aside from those things, it’s business as usual inside.

 

Overall, though, this might be the best looking Audi SUV on the market. Previously, that title went to the Audi RS Q8, thanks to its incredibly aggressive styling and stylish shape. However, the Audi e-tron S is better looking than even that car, thanks to a subtler, yet still very sporty, design, a more handsome shape and a less fussy face. Forget what sort of powertrain it uses, the Audi e-tron S just the coolest SUV in Audi’s lineup, full-stop.
