  • Audi S4 saloon (2008) review

    Price:  £36,000

    21 October 2008 by Georg Kacher

    The new Audi S4 is either Ingolstadt’s idea of a bad joke or a stroke of genius. If you follow the former line of thought, then you’re from the camp that thinks the economy has jumped off a cliff,...

  • Audi A6 2.0 TDIe (2008) review

    Price:  £24,800

    29 September 2008 by Glen Waddington

    There’s an all-important headline figure for the new Audi A6 2.0TDIe, and it’s not 53.3mpg – however impressive that may be. No, of greater importance is its carbon emission figure of 139g/km,...

  • Audi RS6 saloon (2008) review

    Price:  £76,160

    22 September 2008 by Glen Waddington

    It’s a car of broad abilities, the Audi A6. An eco-friendly 2.0TDIe tax-buster at one end, some slick and savvy V6s in the middle – then this utterly bonkers RS6 road-burner at the other end of the...

  • Audi A6 3.0T facelift (2008) review

    Price:  £37,440

    19 September 2008 by Glen Waddington

    With an almost invisible change here and there, the Audi A6 joins the Golf and 3-series as the latest barely perceptible facelifts of best-selling German cars. Okay, I know, the...

  • Audi Q7 V12 TDI (2008) review

    Price:  £96,295

    18 September 2008 by Glen Waddington

    There are big numbers at play with the Audi Q7 V12 TDI. Try these for size: 2635kg (big SUV), V12 (the first 12-cylinder diesel engine yet fitted to a passenger vehicle), 493bhp (it’s the most...

  • Audi Q5 2.0 TDI (2008) review

    Price:  £30,000

    10 July 2008 by Ben Pulman

    The Audi Q5 is here – and we've driven it. Finally Ingolstadt has a medium-sized SUV with which to battle the likes of the BMW X3 and Mercedes GLK. But in the war of the small, premium Germans 4x4s,...

  • Audi A4 2.0 TDI SE (2008) review

    Price:  £23,600

    09 July 2008 by Glen Waddington

    If you want an Audi A4 2.0 TDI there’s no way I’m going to be able to talk you into buying a Ford Mondeo, even though it’s cheaper and much more engaging to drive. If you want an Audi, you’re set on...

  • Audi S5 7-speed S-tronic (2008) review

    Price:  £41,715

    03 June 2008 by Tim Pollard

    Audi has just about the most bewildering array of transmissions of any car maker – and it’s about to get more confusing, with the launch of a twin-clutch version of the S5 coupe. We’ve just driven the...

    Audi A3 2.0 TDI SE 170 (2008) review

    Price:  £20,165

    22 May 2008 by Adam Towler

    Audi has given the A3 a mid-life facelift, and the revised 2.0-litre TDI engine heads the oil-burning line-up in 168bhp form. Audi promises this diesel A3 is cleaner and quieter than the car it...

    Price:  £27,720

    21 May 2008 by Adam Towler

    The Audi S3 Sportback is the latest Audi niche performance car - the mechanicals of the three-door S3 being shoehorned into the five-door Sportback A3 body. Its introduction coincides with a mild...

    20 May 2008 by Glen Waddington

    Pick the optimum combo for a compact exec and the Audi A4 3.0 TDI SE Quattro might spring to mind: V6 diesel grunt and smoothness, the handling promise of four-wheel drive, suave looks and finish and...

  • Audi TT 1.8T (2008) driven review

    Price:  £23,000

    02 May 2008 by Christopher Hubbard

    Just when you though Audi were getting carried away with the TTS and TT TDI we have the much more sensible 1.8 turbo. And no, this isn’t the old car come back to haunt us, but an entry-level version...

  • Audi TTS Coupe (2008) review

    Price:  £33,390

    30 April 2008 by Gavin Green

    The new Audi TTS is the fastest and sportiest version of the iconic TT. Finally, the TT gets the performance to complement the style. Power comes from a hotter version of the TT’s existing 2.0-litre...

  • Audi TT 2.0 TDI (2008) driven review

    Price:  £26,350

    29 April 2008 by Ben Pulman

    The Audi TT TDI. Is this oil-burner from Audi another Ingolstadt niche? Or a svelte coupe and cabriolet with low-end grunt, low emissions and decent fuel consumption? A few critics of Audi's...

    10 April 2008 by Georg Kacher

    Does the world need the Audi R8 V12 TDI, a supercar powered by diesel? We love the regular Audi R8. It’s our 2007 performance car of the year, with sublime steering that belies its Ingolstadt roots,...

  • Audi A4 Avant 2.0 TDi S-line (2008) review

    Price:  £29,250

    03 April 2008 by Dan Trent

    The Audi A4 Avant exists because not everyone wants an SUV and, while BMW’s 3-series has the ‘medium premium’ saloon market sewn up, when it comes to wagons Audi rules the roost. And with this...

    The A3 has been with us since 1996, while the second-generation model arrived back in 2003. Yet this is the first time a cabriolet has been offered, and it’s incredibly late in the model cycle. The...

  • Audi RS6 Avant (2008) review

    29 January 2008 by Ben Barry

    Another performance car for the mid-life crisis, then? Harsh. The Audi RS6 carries on what the original car started back in 2002: it’s an all-wheel drive large family car – the estate goes on sale...
