Audi S4 Avant Review & Prices
The Audi S4 Avant has a strong diesel engine and handling that’ll put a smile on your face, but also a boot big enough for a family. There are better-handling cars still, mind

You won’t have any trouble getting comfortable in the Audi S4’s Avant’s front sports seats. There’s loads of head- and legroom and plenty of seat adjustment as standard. Space in the back of both S4 is very nearly as generous as up front. There’s enough room for a six-foot-tall passenger to stretch out behind an equally lanky driver and more headroom than in the C43.
The S4 Avant’s 505-litre boot is 10 litres larger than a 3 Series Touring’s and 15 litres bigger than in C-Class Estate. You probably won’t notice this difference unless you regularly fill your boot to the brim, but at least the Audi’s slightly wider boot opening makes it a touch easier to load bulky items.
The Audi S4 seemingly does it all: it’s quick, comfy, quiet and doesn’t use too much fuel
The diesel engine of choice for Audi’s sporty A4 is a 347hp 3.0-litre V6, which is a great fit in most ways. Its clever 48-volt tech means it responds quicker than most diesels when you stamp on the throttle and pulls extremely hard over a usefully wide band of revs, meaning the S4 Avant will crack 0-62mph in just 4.9 seconds (compared with 4.7 for the saloon). The only downside is the noise, which is unmistakably diesel-like, despite some fake sporty sound being pumped into the cabin.
