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.

This is our pick of the A4 range. The 161bhp 35 TDI has decent low-end urgency and is brisk enough for most situations. 0-62mph is rattled off in 8.5sec and officially it will average just under 60mpg. It's also RDE2 compliant.
