Count the Audi A4, available in a dizzying array of Premium, Premium Plus, and Prestige trim levels, in with this talented crew.

2017 Audi A4 Engine
The petrol range starts with a 1.4-litre producing 148hp, which we’ll come to in a moment, but the real gem of the entry level engines is the new 2.0-litre. It promises to combine the power of a conventional 2.0-litre engine with the fuel consumption of a 1.4. Fuel economy of 50.4mpg and emissions of 127g/km of a car that has 190hp and gets from 0-62mph in 7.3 seconds.
A4’s 2.0-litre diesel is available in two power outputs – 150hp and 190hp. Both versions are very frugal emitting 99 and 102g/km of CO2, respectively, making the former free to tax. Fuel consumption figures are also very similar with the 150hp, unsurprisingly being more economical at 74.3mpg than the 190hp version, that’s capable of averaging 72.4mpg. At the other end of the range is the 3.0-litre V6 also available in two power levels – 220hp and 272hp. The latter offers effortless power and four-wheel drive grip on rain-drenched roads.
2017 Audi A4 Interior
The only car in its class with standard leather seating surfaces, the A4 has undeniable allure. And with the available Audi virtual cockpit, MMI display and LED ambient lighting, it’s sure to impress drivers and passengers a like. The exterior grip-style door handles, for example, swing slightly upward when pulled, to provide a more intuitive and natural motion. Audi skips adopting the motorized action of some of its more recent cars in favor of a fixed display. The futuristic interior is actually retro. The full-width air vents are lifted straight. And the automatic air conditioning with its touch-sensitive, metallic buttons is designed to call to mind 1970s aftermarket car-stereo systems.
