Costs & verdict

Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

Costs, insurance groups, MPG and CO2

The Audi Q4 e-tron undercuts premium-badged rivals on price, and is likely to hold its value well. That should make for attractive leasing deals and PCP finance rates.

As with all pure-electric cars, the Q4 is cheap to run if you’re a company car driver because it's in a very low benefit-in-kind (BIK) tax band. Always remember to check out the free What Car? New Car Deals pages to compare the best prices.

In addition to all of the above and the augmented-reality head-up display and upgraded sound system discussed in the interior section, range-topping Vorsprung models feature a grey exterior styling pack and a panoramic glass sunroof.

Reliability

Audi finished 18th out of the 30 car makers included in the 2021 What Car? Reliability Survey – ahead of Volvo, Jaguar and Mercedes, but behind BMW and Tesla.

The Q4’s battery warranty lasts for eight years or 100,000 miles (whichever comes first) and the rest of the car is covered for three years/60,000 miles. That’s nothing special when you consider that the main warranty of the Kia e-Niro stretches to seven years/100,000 miles.

Safety and security

Overview

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.

  • Comfortable ride at all speeds
  • Classy and spacious interior
  • Well priced
  • So-so performance
  • Visibility could be better
