Best used 2016-present Audi A4 PCP finance deals

The Audi A4 is classy and comfy and spacious if you go for the Avant estate version. Read on for the best used Audi A4 deals

The Audi A4 is an upmarket car that’s long been a thorn in the side of rivals like the BMW 3 Series, Mercedes C-Class. Like its competitors, the Audi A4 is a classy-looking car inside and out - and as the current version has been on sale since 2016, there are many examples to choose from if you’re browsing for used and nearly new Audi A4s on BuyaCar.

Like its alternatives, the Audi A4 ticks a lot of boxes pretty well. All versions are fairly comfy and refined, so they’re well suited to longer drives on motorways, though the ride can be a bit on the firm side in models fitted with larger wheels or the stiffer sports suspension setup. Likewise, while it’s not the most engaging car of this type down a twisty road, the light controls make the Audi A4 easy to drive around town.

Many of the Audi A4s you’ll find on sale will be the regular saloon version. However, the Audi A4 is available in other bodystyles if you’d prefer something a bit different. For example, there’s also an A4 Avant estate version, which builds upon the already spacious passenger cabin with an even larger luggage volume over the saloon model. There’s also an A4 Allroad variant of the estate, which is a bit more suited to light off-road duties thanks to its slightly higher ride height.

A broad array of engines was available across the Audi A4 range, too. The core models could be specified with one of a selection of petrol and diesel engines - some of which from 2019 onwards were fitted with mild-hybrid tech, which used an electric motor generator unit to give the engine a bit of assistance when accelerating and in turn help improve fuel economy a little bit. If you’re willing to pay a bit more in price and running costs for performance, there are also the sporty Audi S4 and Audi RS4 models to consider.

We’ll leave out the sporty versions of the Audi A4 here, and concentrate just on the core saloon and the Avant estate versions.

Audi A4 SE deals

Until it was replaced by the Technik spec in 2019, SE was the entry-level trim in the Audi A4 range. As a result, it doesn’t have all of the creature comforts that you’ll find on more expensive models, though that doesn’t mean it’s pared back, either. Equipment that comes as standard on the Audi A4 SE includes three-zone automatic air-conditioning, a 7.0-inch media system with built-in Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone connectivity, cruise control and front and rear parking sensors.

Do also bear in mind that the engine range on SE models is quite limited - the only options when the car was new were a 150hp 1.4-litre petrol and a 150hp 2.0-litre diesel, which were both available with six-speed manual and seven-speed automatic gearboxes. They’re punchy and frugal enough for general day-to-day driving duties, but you’ll need to look at higher trims if you’d prefer a punchier Audi A4.

Audi A4 Technik deals

When the Audi A4 was given a mid-life update in 2019, the SE spec was rebranded as the Technik trim. Because the change of name is the extent of most of the changes, Technik models generally come with similar kit to the SE cars - you’ll still get 17-inch alloy wheels, three-zone air-conditioning, cruise control and smartphone connectivity. However, the media screen has now grown to 10.1 inches, and heated front seats are now fitted as standard.

The engine range has been given a slight tweak, too. The petrol engine lineup now consists solely of a 150hp 2.0-litre engine, while the diesel selection is made up of 136hp and 163hp versions of the same 2.0-litre engine. As with SE spec Audi A4s, the gearbox choices are a six-speed manual and a seven-speed automatic.

Audi A4 Sport deals

The next step up from the SE trim, Sport, includes all of the equipment available on the base Audi A4, in addition to a 10-speaker sound system, heated front seats and built-in sat-nav for the 7.0-inch display.

You have a bit more variety when it comes to engine options, too - in addition to the SE spec’s 150hp petrol and diesel, there are also a 190hp 2.0-litre petrol, a 190hp 2.0-litre diesel and a 218hp 3.0-litre diesel to choose from. All three of the new engines are only available with the automatic gearbox, and the two new diesels are exclusively all-wheel-drive.

Audi A4 Sport Edition deals

Like how Technik is the updated version of the original SE spec, Sport Edition models are by and large pretty similar to the pre-update Audi A4s in Sport trim. All the kit from Technik cars has been carried over, and the new features are mostly cosmetic - there are sportier front seats, a subtly more aggressive bodykit and new 18-inch alloy wheels that replace the Audi A4 Technik’s standard 17-inch items.

Sport Edition cars are also available with a few more engine options than their Technik counterparts. If the 150hp petrol and diesel choices don’t quite float your boat, there are also a 204hp 2.0-litre petrol and a 204hp 2.0-litre diesel to pick from. Both of those engines have a seven-speed automatic gearbox, though the diesel is the only Sport Edition Audi A4 that gets all-wheel-drive.

Audi A4 S line deals

If you’d prefer a sportier-still Audi A4, then the S line trim will probably be for you. While this doesn’t have any go-faster bits, these Audi A4 models do get performance car-esque touches like restyled front and rear bumpers, sporty interior pieces like part-leather front seats and a smattering of S line badges inside and out. S line cars also come with a stiffer suspension setup, which helps make the Audi A4 a bit sharper to drive, though it doesn’t ride as smoothly over bumpy roads.

Depending on the age of the Audi A4 S line you’re looking at, the available engines will differ slightly. On pre-update cars, the range consisted of three petrols (150hp, 190hp, 252hp) and four diesels (150hp, 190hp, 218hp, 272hp), whereas updated models were offered with 150hp, 204hp and 265hp petrol and diesel options. Updated cars also get 19-inch alloy wheels as standard, whereas pre-update models came out of the box with 18-inch wheels.

Audi A4 Black Edition deals

Equipment-wise, the Audi A4 Black Edition doesn’t boast any extras over the previously-mentioned models. Instead, the changes are almost entirely cosmetic - and, unsurprisingly, they all involve the colour black. Black Edition cars get piano black interior trim pieces, gloss black 19-inch alloy wheels, black window surrounds and a black radiator grille. Even the Audi logo on the nose and boot lid have been given the monochrome treatment.

This also means all of the engines featured on the less expensive Audi A4s have been carried over onto the Black Edition. As with the rest of the range, though, do be wary of the fact the engine lineup does change slightly, depending on whether you’re looking at a pre-update or post-update car.
