Audi A4 Avant 2.0 TFSI Quattro 2016 review: Top 3 features we like video

2016 Audi A4 Avant - top three features we like

The new Audi A4 follows hot on the heels of the new sedan and is pretty much new from the ground up. As long as you're not after a load bay the size of a football field, we've got the top three reasons you might want to buy the Audi A4 Avant 2.0 TFSI Quattro.

The Tech

This car is chock-a-block with smart technology, some of it brand new – inside you get an 8.3-inch screen with Android and Apple integration and wifi hotspot functionality.

Even the base model gets LED headlights, satnav, parking sensors, three-zone climate control and a 2.0 litre turbo.

The Quattro gets the high power version of that engine and it goes like a rocket. You can option a hell of a lot more toys too.

The Style

It might look a lot like the old one, but if you get up nice and close you can see the funky daytime running lights, clamshell bonnet and a pretty impressive new interior with features pinched from the much more expensive new Q7.

It's great-looking inside and out and it all feels good to the touch. The other premium brands don't get it this right.

The Safety Gear

The A4 has an impressive list of safety gear before you tick a single option box - eight airbags, ABS, traction and stability controls, the usual stuff. But it's also got rear-cross traffic alert, exit warning to stop you dooring pushbikers and other cars and collision mitigation to help stop you crashing or make the crash less bad. It's a lot of stuff.

Drawbacks

There's a few things you need to know about the car - some of the options are hugely expensive, the back seat is pretty tight, claustrophobic if you option the entertainment tablet things and the wagon's load area isn't much chop if you need the space.
