Used Audi A4 Saloon (2000 - 2004) Review

When Audi set to work on the second generation of the A4, its priorities were to increase interior space and improve driver appeal. The firm succeeded on both counts, creating a real rival to the BMW 3-Series and Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

4 out of 5

When Audi set to work on the second generation of the A4, its priorities were to increase interior space and improve driver appeal. The firm succeeded on both counts, creating a real rival to the BMW 3-Series and Mercedes-Benz C-Class. It has handsome looks, superb build quality, beautifully presented interiors and a wide choice of highly developed, powerful and efficient petrol and diesel engines.

It's not quite as rewarding to drive as its big rival the BMW 3-Series but is just as comfortable and well built.

What owners say...

 Aircon still works fine after 15 years and like the last A4 (and the Audi 80 before it) I've not changed a clutch or gearbox so far. Rear seat space is fine for kids or a dog but rubbish for adults.
