The A4’s saloon styling looks smart and it cleverly conceals internal flexibility that echoes the most useful feature of a hatchback.
Ride and Handling
The A4 has a calibre of ride and handling befitting its executive status. It is poised and grippy through the bends, and feels well-engineered for precision combined with a good level of ride comfort. If you like a really cushioning ride, or have family passengers with a tendency to feel the bumps, this S Line model with a firmer suspension set-up may not be the best one to go for. It is a good option for a keen driver, though, providing a pleasing blend of cornering prowess and sporty firmness. The steering has been improved compared with the outgoing model, it now has a crisper and more precise feel.
Ease of Use
The A4’s saloon styling looks smart and it cleverly conceals internal flexibility that echoes the most useful feature of a hatchback. The rear seats can be folded to extend the standard luggage room. In normal mode, with the back seats in place, the boot capacity is 480 litres. When the back seats are stowed, this increases to a handy 962 litres. The car has good access into all the seats, and pretty reasonable all-round vision.
