The latest Audi A4 looks sharp on the outside and has one of the highest quality interiors in the executive car class. The BMW 3 Series is a slightly better all-rounder and offers keen drivers greater thrills behind the wheel, but the A4 is more comfortable if you stick with our favourite Sport Edition trim. The 35 TDI diesel that we also recommend in the A4 is quick, smooth and economical.

Black Edition adds, well, black styling details to the S line specification.

Avoid the 134bhp 30 TDI because it feels a bit flat for a premium executive saloon with 0-62mph taking 9.5sec. It is smooth and frugal, though, officially averaging more than 60mpg, and RDE2 compliant.
