Overview

"Fantastic, effortless drive...."

Exterior and Interior

The A4 Avant S-Line has always been a great looking car with it's legendary 'big mouth' front grill and low slung S-Line suspension. The Black Optics package also adds to the visual enhancements with a satin finish grill, roof bars and window surrounds. Some versions are also fitted with the RS4 style twin spoke alloys which give it that classy, performance inspired look. The interior is a wonderful place to be with the full S-line embossed leather seats and a choice of inlays from brushed aluminium through to Carbon Fibre. The S-Line SE model also features Audi`s excellent MMI Sat Nav system.

Performance and Economy

The 170bhp 2.0 4 cylinder Diesel model is simply the one to own! Reliable, smooth power allow you to cover distance with minimum fuss, combined with a realistic 40+mpg you can't really complain, especially when it sees off most hat hatches from the lights..

Like to Drive

The A4 Avant is just one of those cars that you can jump in, cover 600 miles and jump out the other end feeling like you had popped to the shops! The S-Line does give you optional sports suspension which can crash occasionally in and around towns but once out on the open road it rides like a car twice it's value. <

Faults and Repairs

I have owned my A4 for 18 months and aside from normal routine servicing all I have had to replace is a front wheel bearing (£150) and a factory recall for the fuel injectors which Audi covered for free. Doesn't matter what the weather it has never missed a beat.
