Which used Audi A4 saloon should I buy?
While the 2.0 TDI is the economy champion (especially the ‘Ultra’ low emission model), there's plenty to recommend for the petrol cars. The 1.4 TFSI has excellent on-paper credentials but its lower-powered engine can become a little busy; as the 2.0 TFSI (in 190 guise) offers similar economy with improved performance, it’s a better choice. The 3.0 TDI models are also good to drive and reasonably economical, but it’s the 2.0 TDI (190) that offers the best blend of economy, performance and running costs.
Non-ultra SE and Sport versions of the A4 avoid the lowered, stiffer suspension that ruins the ride of S Line models, and are well equipped. Of the two, it's the Sport model we most cherish for the more supportive sports seats that trim level has.
