  • Audi A4 3.0 TDI SE Quattro (2008) review

    Price:  £29,500

    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...

  • Audi R8 V12 TDI Concept (2008) driven review

    Price:  £125,000

    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...

  • Audi A3 Cabriolet 2.0T Sport (2008) review

    Price:  £25,500

    19 February 2008 by the CAR road test team

    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

    Price:  £77,625

    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...

  • Audi A4 3.2 Quattro (2007) review

    Price:  £28,815

    08 October 2007 by Peter Burgess

    This new Audi A4, it looks classier than before... Audi has moved its game on, as indeed it had to. With squarer proportions than the ubiquitous 3-series, this forthcoming A4 looks decidedly more...

  • Audi A8 facelift (2007) review

    Price:  £49,995

    03 September 2007 by CJ Hubbard

    I'm sorry, did you say this was a mid-life facelift for Audi's luxury A8? Fair enough – the cosmetic changes aren't that exciting. In fact, they're really rather difficult to spot, being limited to...

  • Audi A5 3.0 TDi (2007) review

    Price:  £33,430

    13 July 2007 by Ben Pulman

    Haven’t you driven the Audi A5 before? We have, but only in S5 guise, and not on UK roads. Back in April we drove the 354bhp V8 but that was Audi’s attempt to steal a little limelight from the BMW M3;...

  • Audi Q7 4.2 TDi (2007) review

    Price:  £50,090

    10 May 2007 by Danny Cobbs

    Is this 4.2-litre diesel Q7 just playing another part in the Audi master plan for world dominance? When you’ve spent a gazillion euros developing the world’s most powerful V8 diesel engine it would...

  • Audi S5 (2007) review

    Price:  £39,825

    26 April 2007 by Georg Kacher

    Have I missed something? How can we be reading about an S5 when we haven't even had an A5? Because Audi knew BMW was going to launch its M3 this spring and wanted to spoil the Munich firm's thunder.

  • Audi R8 (2007) review

    Price:  £76,825

    18 January 2007 by Phil Mcnamara

    A mid-engined supercar from Audi – how extraordinary... Make no mistake, this is a seminal motoring moment. The R8 is Audi’s first mid-engined supercar, designed to prove that Ingolstadt can mix it...

  • Audi TT Roadster 2.0T (2006) review

    Price:  £26,940

    11 December 2006 by Ben Oliver

    Why do I want to read about a roadster in this weather? Look out of your window. Yes, you’ll see stormclouds, flooded roads and possibly a tornado, but you’ll probably also see an Audi TT roadster. In...

  • Audi TT 2.0T S-Tronic (2006) review

    Price:  £24,900

    31 October 2006 by Ben Barry

    Haven’t you driven the TT? We’ve already tested the 3.2-litre four-wheel drive Audi TT, but this car’s the cut-price sibling: a front-wheel drive, 2.0-litre turbo which, at £24,625, undercuts its big...

  • Audi S3 (2006) review

    Price:  £27,000

    31 August 2006 by Chris Chilton

    Hot hatch So the fast A3 returns. What’s the story this time? It’s the same basic recipe: turbocharged four-pot motor and Haldex four-wheel drive system, a great cabin and a price that makes it appear...

  • Audi TT 3.2 V6 quattro (2006) review

    Price:  £29,635

    31 July 2006 by Jason Barlow

    Another Volkswagen hatch in drag? Not quite. Where the old car shared too much with the Golf - to the detriment of the driving experience - this new TT is actually an ally/steel hybrid, with an...

    After the rapturous reception given to the brilliant new RS4 we've got high hopes for the S6. As well you might. All the ingredients are there: V10 Lamborghini engine, grippy Torsen four-wheel drive...
