Why Lease An Audi A4?
What’s The Cabin Like?
How Does It Drive?
Audi offers the A4 in Saloon and Avant (estate) body styles, the latter being a perfect choice for families. The allroad adds some off-roading ability thanks to its higher road clearance. The Saloon offers 480 litres of boot space, which matches the BMW 3 Series. The Avant increases this to 495 litres with the rear seats in place and a class-leading 1495 litres with them folded flat. Obviously, while there’s not that much of a difference between the quoted size of the boots on the 2 A4s, the Avant is the more practical offering thanks to its larger boot aperture and full-sized rear hatch.
There is plenty of storage in the door pockets for odds and ends, while the centre console houses 2 cupholders up front and 2 more in the rear when the middle seatback is folded down.
If low running costs are a priority, then look no further than the entry-level diesels. The base 136hp 2.0-litre diesel promises 60.1mpg, although we would opt for the more powerful 163- or 204hp variants as they are only marginally less efficient at 58.9mpg and 54.3mpg respectively.
Petrol variants range from 150- to 265hp and offer between 46.3- and 34.9mpg. For those that still prefer to change their own gears, the 150hp front-wheel-drive models can be had with a 6-speed manual transmission, which is uncharacteristically more efficient than the 7-speed auto variant (46.3mpg versus 45.6mpg).
A4 SaloonThe Audi A4 saloon is a traditional 3-box, 4 doors and a decent-sized 480-litre boot.
A4 Estate (Avant)The Audi A4 estate – or the Avant in Audi-speak – has a 495-litre boot and when the rear seats are down, it offers fully 1495 litres of loading space. This is the only body style the high-performance RS4 flagship is offered in.
A4 AllroadThis is essentially an A4 estate with higher ground clearance, chunky plastic trim and equipped as standard with all-wheel drive for mild off-road excursions.
High Performance ModelsOffering 341hp and 39.8mpg, the diesel-powered Audi S4 may well be the pick of the bunch if you like your performance cars to be parsimonious. The 450hp 2.9-litre petrol-powered RS4 is an unashamedly focused performance vehicle, although it still manages to eke out 28.8mpg on the mixed cycle, and the estate-only body style adds a dash of practicality into the mix.
The Audi A4 Vs Competitors
There are mixed reviews regarding the Audi A4’s reliability. Some owners have experienced exterior quality issues and high ownership costs were also cited. Audi offers 2 types of service packages for its new cars and every A4 comes with a 3-year, 60,000-mile warranty, so any issues should be promptly resolved.
The Audi A4 Saloon has 480 litres of boot space, while the Avant adds an additional 15 litres with the rear seats in place and offers a serious 1495 litres with them folded flat.
The Audi A4 is available in Technik, Sport, Sport Edition, S Line, Black Edition, Carbon Black and Vorsprung trims. Some trims are model dependent – for example, the Carbon Black trim is limited to the RS4, while the Sport trim is reserved for the A4 allroad.
Yes. All A4s come equipped with Audi’s Parking System Plus, which includes a rear-view camera.
The A4 Saloon can seat 5 adults and their luggage, although some rivals offer slightly more rear seating space. The A4 Estate offers even more luggage carrying capacity, while the estate-only allroad adds some off-roading ability into the mix.
The Audi A4 remains a popular leasing choice thanks to its exemplary build quality, comfortable ride and impressive range of engines. The estate variants make for great family-friendly cars.
