Alternatives

What alternatives should I consider to a used Audi A4 saloon?

The BMW 3 Series has been a class leader for years, especially among those looking for a rewarding car to drive. The current 3 Series keeps that tradition alive and is a more entertaining car than the A4. Just be aware that M Sport models have a hard ride unless adaptive dampers are fitted.

The Mercedes-Benz C-Class is less entertaining to drive than the BMW 3 Series (in fact, it’s on a par with the A4) but has an excellent interior and is supremely comfortable. It’s only really the sometimes tiresome tyre noise that lets it down.

Overview

The A4 is a highly refined executive saloon that's great value used.

  • Class-leading interior
  • Extensive engine choice
  • Very comfortable
  • Uninspiring handling
  • S line ride quality
  • Ultra version uses uncomfortable S Line sports suspension
