If you fancy a estate car with a swanky badge, then the Audi A4 Avant may well be on your shortlist – and if it isn't then it jolly well should be. It shares nearly all that’s great about the A4 saloon with the exception of an even bigger and more practical boot.

The A4 Avant is Audi's smallest estate model, so its direct rivals include the Mercedes C-Class Estate and Volvo V60. It's still plenty big enough to swallow a few suitcases but it you want something truly vast that wears a premium badge, you'll want to look at the larger Audi A6 Avant, BMW 5 Series Touring and Mercedes E-Class Estate. 

Then again, if you aren't overly fussed about a posh badge then you'd be mad to rule out the class-leading Skoda Superb. It isn't just cheaper than the A4 Avant Avant, it's considerably more practical, too.

But assuming you want something a little more compact and lighter on its toes, how does the A4 Avant compare against its direct rivals? And which engines and trims make the most sense? Read on over the next few pages and we'll tell you everything you need to know.
