Review

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.

We can see the appeal of Sport Edition. This adds 18in wheels, leather seat trim, sports front seats and more aggressive looks but, importantly, retains the softer Comfort Dynamic suspension for a suppler ride than S line trim.

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.
