I'm trying to calculate the absolute minimum amount I can buy a new Audi A4 Avant for. I have a lump sum from my company to buy the car, but I can't find the information I require via the usual company car tax calculator.
The cheapest new A4 Avant to buy and own is the 2.0 TDI 120, starting at 23,300.
You can pay a lot less than that, though: the best price we managed to find was 20,594 at internet broker Motorlogix.com a saving of 2706.
Its not that nippy, and you might want to spend a bit more on extras like cruise control, but you should get 53 miles to the gallon.
The 1.8 TFSI is only 100 more, much faster and comes with more kit. It drinks a lot more fuel, though, and costs more to tax.
You won't get as much money back when you come to sell, either.
