Overall verdict

The Top Gear car review:Audi A4 Avant


On the inside

Layout, finish and space

Step inside and you’d forgive the A4 if it told bad jokes. The build quality is irreproachable. The ergonomics are spot on. It’s airy, spacious, crammed with technology that’s utterly intuitive to use, and as we’ve said, barely disturbed by unwanted noise once underway. The 26mm increase in length is mostly enjoyed in the rear seats (which claim to offer more room than anything else in the class) and the 505-litre boot. The obvious BMW and Mercedes rivals, although neither is exactly cramped, can’t muster more than 500 litres. Flip the seats down (a doddle, via one catch) and you have 1,510 litres. Wheelarch intrusion is respectable, and there’s an optional hands free auto-open/close bootlid.
