Classy, attractive and very technologically savvy, the Audi A4 now more than ever offers a real threat of taking market share away from regular BMW 3-series and Mercedes-Benz C-Class buyers. It seems that Audi has really looked into the wants and needs of customers and tweaked the A4 accordingly, to what is now an extremely good all-round package in this category. The interior design is attractive, yet minimalistic in appearance and you get a host of luxury features and tech to play with as well. Ride quality offers a good compromise between comfort and surefooted handling, while the 2-litre turbocharged engine delivers good performance combined with frugal fuel economy.
