4 out of 5

The Audi A4 Cabriolet is all about understated elegance. It's smooth, refined, has a well designed interior and comes with some fine petrol and diesel engines. This car is an updated version of the model that was launched in 2001 but gets a fresh look (new lights and a wide front grille), an improved drive and several new, more powerful, engines. Some of the old criticisms remain - the rear is cramped and it's not particularly entertaining to drive - but it's still one of the classiest soft tops you can buy at any price.

What owners say...

 The boot is huge for a cabrio with the roof up and not too bad with it down. Proper torsen based quattro 4wd means you simply put your foot down, and it goes, no matter what the weathers like.

 Good boot space for a convertible even when the roof is down.

 Full electric roof, no clips or catches here. Also the boot is still usuable even with the roof down.
