The lure of a premium badge can't be underestimated, because although initially the Skoda Superb puts in a strong showing next to the A4, interest dwindles as buyers move from the researching to buying phases. Don't overlook the Czech entirely, however, because it's one seriously capable saloon. It's vast inside, it has a classy, high-quality interior and it represents exceptional value for money.

A4 buyers look both up and down Audi's range in search of a good deal, and the A3 Sportback is a great choice if you don't need all the space the A4 offers. Despite being significantly older than most of the competition, it remains one of the best family hatchbacks on sale today, thanks in large part to a beautifully crafted interior and a fine range of engines. If you won't be doing enough miles to justify a diesel, the peppy 148bhp 1.5-litre turbo petrol engine (badged 35 TFSI) is our recommended choice.
