If you want a relatively compact estate with a premium badge, there are lots of things to like about the A4 Avant – particularly if opt for our recommended 35 TDI diesel engine, which is frugal yet punchy, and Technik trim, which is relatively well-equipped. Much bigger estates are available for considerably less money, the best of which is the Skoda Superb Estate, while the BMW 3 Series Touring is as classy as the A4 Avant but more fun to drive.

Black Edition adds, well, black styling details to the S line specification.

Avoid the 134bhp 30 TDI because it feels a bit flat for a premium executive saloon with 0-62mph taking 9.8sec. It is smooth and frugal, though, officially averaging just under 60mpg, and it's RDE2 compliant.
