What Car? says

4 out of 5 stars

For The Audi A4 is solidly screwed together and has a very classy cabin

Against It's not as sharp to drive as the BMW 3 Series, and the 1.6 petrol is a bit weedy

Verdict The A4 has a strong image, strong cabin and even stronger ownership appeal

Go for… 2.0 TDI SE


Audi A4 Saloon
  • 1. The transmission tunnel in the floor eats into the foot space for the centre rear passenger
  • 2. There have been problems with the air-con, but see if the previous owner had it fixed under warranty
  • 3. Metallic paint and S-Line trim are sought after, so will be easy to sell on in the future
  • 4. If you're looking at a high-mileage car, check for problems with the front suspension
  • 5. 1.8T models are prone to ignition coil failure, so see if any possible buy has had them replaced
