If you’re after a comfortable and extremely refined executive saloon, then you’re in the right place. In fact, we’re on the record as saying the Audi A4 Saloon is a great car: we voted it our overall What Car? Car of the Year back in 2016.

The A4 Saloon combines quiet yet punchy engines, a superb interior and relaxed cruising manners, all packaged with the premium German quality we’ve grown to love from Audi. And if you want to add even more practicality and family capability to that list, there’s always the estate version, the A4 Avant; you can read about that in our dedicated review here.

Audi has kept the A4 fresh with a series of engine revisions and reorganised trim levels, and a facelift is due later in 2019. But when its closest rivals include the plush Mercedes-Benz C-Class, the sharp-driving Jaguar XE and our current favourite executive, the BMW 3 Series, the A4 can’t afford to rest on its laurels.

So, can it best its rivals in the executive car class? Read on over the next few pages for everything you need to know about the A4, including which trim level, engine and options you should pick.

And remember, if you want to buy an A4, then don't forget to check out our New Car Buying pages. You could save a small fortune without any awkward haggling.
