Audi A4 - Buying Guide & Review
The Audi A4 Saloon is a luxury car which offers superb build quality inside and out, timeless styling, powerful diesel engines and rock-solid residual values. The latest model was launched in 2008 and has been very popular here in Ireland for the aforementioned reasons, and it is a great option if you are seeking an alternative to the BMW 3-Series.
With a longer wheelbase than the older Audi A4, the latest model offers more room and a more refined than ever before. Open the boot, and there is 480 litres of luggage space which is on par with the 3-Series and bigger than most saloon cars in the executive class.
The A4 is available with both petrol and diesel engines, however the 2.0-litre TDi diesel engine is the most popular here at Autoxpress thanks to its high power output, great fuel economy and low motor tax cost. ‘Common Rail’ technology is used in this engine which helps to reduce noise levels and also gives the car a more refined feel at motorway speeds. The 2.0 TDi engine is available in three different power outputs depending on your preference, 120bhp, 143bhp and 170bhp. Stop/Start technology is also optional which further helps to reduce fuel consumption and emissions output.
Out on the road, the latest A4 is engaging and turns with confidence and grip. Take a test drive in one of the Audi A4s available for sale at Auoxpress.ie, and you’ll notice how the steering feels sharp and the standard stability control offers a safe feeling in wet or slippy conditions. Whether you are on the motorway at high speed or negotiating bumpy back roads, the A4 always feels comfortable and suited to any road surface, which is must here in Ireland.
In terms of equipment, our UK-sourced and imported Audi A4s are very highly specced. Most of the current cars in stock are fitted with Bluetooth, cruise control, rear parking sensors, climate control, fog lights, alloy wheels and more.
