It’s a busy marketplace these days, but the Audi A4 has been a serious contender amongst executive compact saloons since its launch in 1994. Audi established the A4 as the best-of-both-worlds alternative to the other big German names – the comfort-first Mercedes C-Class and the all-for-the-sport BMW 3-series – and it paid off. The car is still among the best-selling Audi models around the globe. With a variety of trims and variants, there are plenty of ways to balance price-point and features. With the kids in tow or on a solo weekend jaunt, road-tripping with the A4 delivers the joy of driving without compromising on comfort.

What we think about the Audi A4
The Audi A4 brings practicality, precision engineering and prim looks together, making it one of the most recognizable premium all-rounders on the road.
High-quality, roomy interiors
Packed with standard tech and safety features
Smooth and quiet on the road
Could handle corners better
No hybrid variant
Both the Saloon and Avant variants are available in 4 trims – Technik, Sport, S Line and Black Edition. Be it petrol or diesel, 2.0-litre engines are the most popular across the 5 generations, especially the B8 generation from 2008 and onwards. There’s no doubt that sportier versions perform better – however, where the base-level 2.0 litre Diesel Technick lacks in power, it makes up for in fuel-efficiency.
