Quick Summary

Recommended. Audi doing dependability and quality, even if it’s not that exciting.

Road Test

Audi sometimes does excitement, quite often in fact, but on other occasions it does practicality and dependency.

The Audi A4 is a case of the latter. But whatever it is doing, the German manufacturer always does quality and there’s little to fault the A4.

And, with some models costing in the region of £50,000, you wouldn’t expect to be let down.

All models, particular the Avant (estate), are big in the cabin, with plenty of boot space, all the gadgets and gizmos you could ever need and lots of comfort for long journeys.

Engines are strong, grunty and mostly frugal – for example the tasty 3.0-litre V6 TDI makes 245ps, giving drivers plenty to be happy about, with 62mph coming up in six seconds.

It’s rapid, incredibly smooth and has power every time you need it – coupled with real-world economy well into the 40s.

And, if you’re on the motorway haul, there’s plenty on board to make the journey a doddle.

Every car in the range gets a 10-speaker sound system, digital radio, three-zone climate control, touch screen technology, cruise control, electric windows front and back and a really useful power tailgate.

Which, all of a sudden, makes base trim, at less than £30,000, a rather tempting proposition.

There are options aplenty, such as heated seats front and back, safety tech like lane assist, the possibility of an uprated Bang and Olufsen sound system and plenty more besides.

The A4 doesn’t stir the soul greatly, it’s the antithesis of the TT, for example, but in equal measure you’ll never grow tired of its capabilities.

Choose wisely and it’s great value – get overly happy with the options list and it gets pricey quickly, so think carefully about what you actually need.
