Review

The latest Audi A4 looks sharp on the outside and has one of the finest-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 the more comfortable choice if you opt for our favourite Sport Edition trim. It's a fine car.

get the best price

We'd ideally opt for the Sport Edition. This adds 18in wheels, leather seat trim, sports front seats and more aggressive looks but, importantly, retains the softer Comfort Dynamic suspension for a suppler ride than S line trim.

You’ll breeze past slower-moving cars on country roads and have no stress keeping up in the fast lane with this powerful and gutsy 201bhp 40 TDI. It can hit 0-62mph in just 6.9sec, and comes as standard with a slick automatic gearbox. Quattro four-wheel drive is also standard, but this pushes up both the price and BIK tax costs. We’d say most are best served by the 35 TDI.
