Review

The Audi Q4 e-tron is temptingly priced for a premium-badged electric SUV, plus it’s a very comfortable, practical and classy choice. If you’re not so worried about the emblem on the nose of your car, we’d urge you to look at the Skoda Enyaq as well, because it’s similar in a lot of respects. However, the Q4 does feel like the more expensive car it is, particularly in terms of infotainment and interior finish.

Range-topping Vorsprung cars come with almost every luxury you can think of, including a panoramic glass sunroof, an upgraded Sonos premium sound system and an augmented-reality head-up display, which can project images, such as sat-nav directional arrows showing you where to turn, so they appear to be on the road ahead. They also get additional safety kit, such as blind-spot monitoring and a system that warns you if another vehicle is passing behind you when you’re reversing out of a parking space.

This is the only Q4 e-tron at the moment that gets four-wheel drive for added traction in slippery conditions. It's quicker than the 40 version (6.2sec from 0-62mph compared with 8.5sec), but the instant accelerator response of the less expensive 40 makes the extra performance of the 50, and the fact it isn’t as quick as some rivals makes it seem superfluous. Plus the 50 won’t go as far due to the added weight of its four-wheel drive system.
