The interior layout, fit and finish

Driving position and dashboard

You won’t have too many issues getting comfortable in the Audi A4 Avant. There are generous seat and steering wheel adjustments, including four-way electrically operated lumbar adjustment that's standard with entry-level Technik trim. From Sport Edition trim upwards you'll find well-bolstered sports seats that hold you in place more securely through corners. Whichever seat is fitted, it's comfortable on a long trip and you get a comfy adjustable centre armrest.

That said, there are some problems. The pedals are offset to the right and there's a bulge in the footwell by your left leg. It's quite pronounced, but the BMW 3 Series Touring and Mercedes C-Class aren't much better. The Volvo V60 is the car we'd choose if you want one of the best driving positions around. 

Fortunately, every version has front and rear parking sensors and a rear-view camera. 

All Audi A4 Avants come with bright LED headlamps, although there is no option to upgrade to adaptive Matrix LED headlights.

Sat nav and infotainment

Every A4 Avant gets Audi’s impressive MMI infotainment system with a 10.1in touchscreen. The graphics are sharp, the screen is really responsive and the menus are decipherable after a little acclimatisation. We still prefer the iDrive system you get in the BMW 3 Series because it gives you the option of a touchscreen and a physical rotary controller, which is a less distracting way to make changes while you're on the road.
