Welcome to Audi Car Reviews: A site devoted to all things Audi! Audi is a well-established car manufacturer which has excelled in modern history to become one of the greatest brands in the motor industry. With a number of prestigious models it is not hard to see why Audi is as popular as it is, they have a car for everyone and they are all made with the same ethic behind them to ensure that only the best ever comes off the Audi production lines. There are more detailed Audi car reviews around; BuyYourCar - click here to go to their Audi reviews page, TopGear - click here and BestCars - click here are some of the more quirky reviews we found, but the other pages on this site offer my thoughts on some of my favourite Audi models.
The Audi A4 is a medium-sized executive vehicle which has been in production since 1994 and is currently in its fourth generation.
There are three models available in the current A4 range, the A4 Saloon, the A4 Avant and the A4 allroad quattro.
The 4-door saloon offers a spacious interior and comes complete with an impressive level of interior equipment as standard. It delivers decent performance and is available with a strong selection of engines; however the overall quality of the ride is not quite up to the standards set by some rivals.
The A4 saloon is priced from £23,960 as new, although top-of-the-range models will cost nearly £40,000. All engines are relatively green for the class, which equates to low road tax, while the most frugal of them boasts a combined MPG of 66.
The Audi A4 Avant is a 5-door estate which offers more interior space and a larger loading area for luggage, making it an excellent family car. It is priced similarly to the saloon, starting from just over £25,000, and costs the same to insure and tax. It is slightly less economical than its 4-door brother in terms of fuel consumption.
The A4 allroad quattro features a wider track and permanent four-wheel drive, allowing it to perform better off-road and over more difficult terrain. It is pricier than the other models in the range, starting from £31,810, and not as fuel efficient either.
The full Audi A4 range is available to lease, with deals online at AutoVillage.co.uk.
The Audi Q3 is a small crossover 4×4, and the smallest model in the Q range.
It is on offer with a 2.0-litre petrol or a 2.0-litre diesel engine, and is available in either two- or four-wheel drive. Refinement and ride quality are both strong with the Q3, even at higher speeds, while a decent level of space is provided inside the cabin.
The Q3 is on a par with rivals in terms of how much it costs to tax and insure. It can deliver a combined MPG of 54 with its most economical engine.
As new the Audi Q3 is available starting from £25,270, with range-topping derivatives costing in excess of £32,000.
Used models which are just a year old can be purchased for around £20,000 however. You can find listings at CarDealerLocator.co.uk.
Audi Q5 & Q7
The Audi Q5 is a medium sized 4×4, essentially a larger Q3, while the Q7 is a full sized 4×4.
The Q5 starts from £30,980 and the Q7 from £60,875.
