An impressive rival for the latest 3 Series is Audi’s A4 3.0 TDI 218


What is it?


The all-new Audi A4 is an impressive executive saloon which is classy form the inside, good to drive and moreover, exceptionally quiet.




For their standard sports suspension, the 2.0 TDI Ultra models have lost one star but it is hoped that these 3.0 TDI models will make up for that. It gets Audi’s frugal 3.0-litre six-cylinder diesel engine, and 109g/km of CO2 emissions.


What’s it like to drive?


Despite of being much more powerful than the 2.0 TDI 190, the 3.0 V6 is much faster even on much lower revs. It is so smooth that even a gentle squeeze is more than enough for it to start flying, and if you put your foot real hard, it will take just 6.6 seconds to get you to 62mph.


The official economy is 62.8mpg. The performance of 3.0 TDI is impressively refined, even when you are accelerating it hard, you will barely hear a whisper from the engine.



The cabin is also well insulated that no vibration can seep into it, and it’s so quiet that road and wind noise don’t bother you at all. Audi’s seven-speed S tronic automatic gearbox has been fitted in as standard in 3.0 TDI 218 models.


The shifting is so smooth that you barely notice it until you choose Dynamic mode. In the stop-start traffic and when parking, it can be a bit jerky though.


What’s it like inside?


When the name Audi is mentioned, the classy, wonderfully finished interiors comes in mind. The new A4 doesn’t disappoint either, the inside holds upmarket materials everywhere and the dash is simple yet user-friendly.



Audi’s MMI infotainment system comes as standard, a centrally mounted 7.0in display which allows you to control using a rotary dial mounted between the front seats. Sat-nav is also standard, but if you require the digital Virtual Cockpit, then you will need to spend some extra.


Should I buy one?


Yes, you should. If you are that kind of fellow who travels a lot and want to have a saloon with comfortable interior and sporty thing under the hood.



Then this just the one you would love.
