New A4 saloon sets the class benchmark for interior quality and engine refinementread the full model review
Our favourite trim comes with all the features of the SE, but adds sat-nav, a punchier 10-speaker stereo and front sports seats. We’d still recommend adding at least adjustable lumbar support and the excellent Virtual Cockpit, though.
Engine:3.0 TDI Quattro
In many respects, this is our favourite engine because, being a V6, it's supremely refined yet is surprisingly efficient. Although the four-wheel-drive-only V6 218 can't compete with the front-wheel drive Ultra models in terms of carbon emissions, it'll only cost a business user an extra 1% in company car tax when compared with the 2.0 TDI quattro. If you must have four-wheel drive, we'd be very tempted to choose this engine.
