This car has been superseded by a newer model, click here to go to the latest Audi A4 Saloon review.

Parkers overall rating: 4 out of 5 4.0

Thanks to a good four-star Euro NCAP crash rating and an abundance of safety equipment fitted as standard, the A4 is a reassuringly safe vehicle. All models get ESP and ABS while security is taken care of by the anti-theft alarm and VIN-etched windows. Rear side airbags are also options on top of the six fitted as standard.

The cabin is a bit short on storage space but the boot is more than reasonable and it's better than it's predecessor. Rear space is good, but taller passengers may find it a little cramped, especially for knee room.
