The second generation A4 Avant comes very close to the standards set by the BMW 3-Series and Mercedes-Benz C-Class. It's a well built and high quality estate that offers good carrying ability and excellent all round comfort.

What owners say...

 Good fuel consumption (~50 mpg) with good performance when needed. Great motorway cruiser. Good space with rear seats down.

 Four wheel drive in this wet slippy country is underated, its a small estate,more a bigger hatchback and should be looked at as such. Its a great car for mile munching.
