What Car? says
For The Audi A4 Cab is well built, refined and rides smoothly
Against The A4 suffers from high running costs, limited storage space, and lacklustre dynamics will disappoint.
Verdict The Audi is a sophisticated soft-top, but it’s not cheap to run, and not the best to drive.
Go for… 2.0TDI
Avoid… 4.2 S4
- 1. Diesel choice is the 138bhp 2.0 TDI, which copes well with the car's weight. The 230bhp 3.0TDI is much faster, but also much more expensive to run.
- 2. You need to make sure that the roof is in good condition, because repairs can prove costly.
- 3. CO2 emissions are high, with the petrol models ranging from 199g/km to 331g/km. The diesels emit 173g/km to 209g/km.
