Verdict

Final thoughts and pick of the range

The A4 in a prettier frock. If style matters, go right ahead, but don't think you're getting a better car...

Of course, the ultimate usable, fast Audi on this platform is the £45,400 S4 Avant, and if we’re honest, that’s the one we’d probably buy. Because we’re odd like that. For most, the allure of the Sportback’s image and good looks will be enough to justify the extra £1,600.  

But is it worth buying one over an A4 Saloon? The Sportback doesn’t offer a massively more dynamic package than the regular A4, mind, and should you insist on the kind-of coupe style of the Sportback over a saloon or estate, that’s on you. Just remember to point out to the neighbours you’ve bought the brand-new one.
