Audi A4

It was our favourite premium executive saloon but things have changed as the A4 is now almost five years old. But it still puts up a fight. Apart from two diesels and a petrol, you also get the option of the S4, the most powerful car in its class. Assembled at Aurangabad and with prices ranging from ~27 lakh to 46 lakh, the A4 borrows its underpinnings from the last-gen VW Passat, which isn’t such a bad thing. Quattro is optional, but the rest of the kit is exhaustive, quite a bit of which is standard. Space is decent, the overall build quality is good and it has the best media interface of the quartet. It’s the only other front-wheel driven car in the pack (when not quattro) but it displays good confidence and road manners. The 2.0 TDI diesel is slow, the 1.8 TSI petrol is an average performer and the 3.0 TDI will blow your socks off.
