What Car? says

4 out of 5 stars

For The A4 convertible is classy, well made and beautiful. Its cabin is a great place to be

Against It's very expensive to buy, not as sharp to drive as a BMW 3 Series, and costly to repair

Verdict Posh, pricey and smooth, it looks good and does most things well - just don't expect a cracking drive.

Go for… 2.0T FSi

Avoid… 4.2 S4

Audi A4 Cabriolet
  • 1. Air-con systems are vulnerable – check that it blows cold
  • 2. There's genuine space for four adults and enough room in the boot for their luggage
  • 3. With a 2.0 TDi engine, this is a rare thing, a soft-top that promises up to 44mpg
  • 4. Cooling system problems are the biggest cause of concern, so watch the engine for signs of overheating
  • 5. 1.8T models are prone to ignition coil failure, so see if any possible buy has had them replaced
