All A4s come with climate control, xenon headlights, cruise control, rear parking sensors, keyless start and a DAB radio. However, we’d recommend going for Sport trim because this gets you all-important sat-nav and a pair of more supportive sports seats in the front. S line trim brings some styling upgrades but you still have to pay extra for full-leather seats – as you do on every other trim level apart from S4. Don’t forget to deselect the Sports suspension option and go for the no-cost option of Comfort Dynamic suspension if you want the best ride and handling balance.
The S4 also gets different styling, 'S' Sports suspension and brakes, quad exhausts, S4 badging and an infotainment upgrade.
The Comfort and Sound Pack is worth considering; it adds keyless entry, electrically adjustable front seats, an upgraded stereo and adjustable lumbar support (if you’re buying a version that doesn’t come with this anyway).
Meanwhile, the optional Vision Pack gets you the excellent and highly recommended Virtual Cockpit, along with a head-up display and high-beam assist. Unfortunately, this pack is only available if you also buy the Technology Pack – both options together push up the price significantly.
Individual options include heated front seats, privacy glass, a heated windscreen and a panoramic glass roof.
