What Car? says...

If you fancy a family estate car with a swanky badge, then how about the Audi A4 Avant? It shares nearly all that’s great about the A4 saloon with the addition of an even bigger and more practical boot.

It’s a sharp-looking car on the outside, and inside it’s arguably even better, with a thoroughly modern design and exquisite, class-leading build quality. You’ll also find the A4 Avant is a comfortable car, with a smooth ride, depending on what wheels and suspension you choose, along with efficient engines that mean low running costs for business and private buyers alike.

Audi has priced the A4 Avant in line with its premium rivals – cars such as the Mercedes-Benz C-Class Estate and BMW 3 Series Touring. However, don’t forget to look at the benefits of more mainstream alternatives such as the Volkswagen Passat Estate, which can be cheaper to buy and is almost as well finished, while offering even more space inside.

Read on over the next few pages to get our in-depth impressions, along with our recommendations for trim levels and engines.

And remember, if you want to buy an A4 Avant, don't forget to check out our new car deals by clicking here. You could save a small fortune without any awkward haggling.
