What alternatives should I consider to a used Audi A4 estate?
The BMW 3 Series Touring has been a class leader for years, especially among those looking for a practical and rewarding car to drive. The current 3 Series Touring keeps that tradition alive and is a more entertaining car than the A4 Avant. Just be aware that M Sport models have a hard ride unless adaptive dampers are fitted.
The Mercedes-Benz C-Class Estate is less entertaining to drive than the BMW 3 Series Touring (in fact, it’s more on a par with the A4 Avant), but it has an excellent interior and is supremely comfortable. It’s only really the sometimes tiresome road noise and occasionally lumpy ride that lets it down.
