What do you look for when choosing a car to cover serious miles? If it’s a top-notch interior and refinement, reassuring safety features and responsive and efficient powertrains, then the Audi A4 is a real contender. It might not be quite as fun to drive as the some of its premium rivals, but its technology takes some of the strain out of traffic jams and motorway driving, leaving you to get out at your destination feeling just as fresh as when you left home. Avant estate and allroad quattro are hugely versatile.
