Review

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.

S line has lowered suspension and 19in wheels, so it's firmer-riding than some might like. It also adds leather and Alcantara seats, privacy glass, high-beam assist and even more overtly sporty styling inside and out.

With 261bhp the 45 TFSI is no-questions-asked rapid (0-62mph in 5.5sec). Officially it will average 35mpg and, with quattro four-wheel drive, it gets off the line cleanly in any weather.
