Obviously 0-60 is the most important stat for a sports SUV! Gotta make it to the next stoplight quicker than the next person, on the way to the mall!
Not to disagree with you, but I will, I noted the Macan was Rear Wheel drive biased in my post, please read it again.
Even though the Macan and A5 are similar, and the Macan is built on a similar platform with identical hard points, the AWD systems are tuned differently. Porsche is RWD biased, Audi it is not.
Also Note, I didn't say that Zero to 60 meant nothing, it does. What I did note, was that it's not the only thing. I think handling and the AWD systems bias is also very important.
As for Alpha, I can't be past the front end for them!
As for Infiniti and Nissan quality, my 2006 M45 was rock solid with no issues whatsoever in the 140k miles I had it until my son totaled it. While the newest QX60 (I think that is the right name for their smaller SUV) looks really good (since they stole the shape from the F-Pace), I doubt that it has the same handling and performance numbers that the F-Pace has.
And not going back to the dealership regularly would be boring. I'd miss all my new friends there!
