Audi A3 Hatchback (12 - present)

When the A3 was first introduced, it offered unparalleled class, space and excellent drivability. Today, it still offers all of these things and continues to dominate the segment. There hasn’t been any drastic changes made to the latest A3, mainly because Audi never make huge changes to any of their cars that have done well. They simply ... more

Audi A3 Saloon (13 - present)

The Audi A3 saloon has become an increasingly popular choice for A4 fans who don’t quite need the bulk of its larger sibling, but like its classic silhouette. As compact saloons go, its proportions are close to perfect.  It’s a fair bit kinder to the pocket too. It has 45l more boot space than its hatchback equivalent and more ... more

Audi A3 Sportback (13 - present)

This generation of the A3 Sportback may not differ too much appearance-wise from the previous version bar a few bodywork tweaks here and there, but it does excel in other areas. It’s as practical, efficient, and economical as it has ever been. As well as that, Audi were even more generous with standard equipment this time around. It may be ... more

Audi A3 Cabriolet (14 - present)

Just when you thought the A3 range couldn’t get any bigger, Audi has added the A3 Cabriolet to its ranks, which already consists of a ‘three box’ saloon, a three-door and five-door model, and the popular high performance S3. This is the second generation of the cabriolet so Audi had to be sure that it reached the high standards ... more

Audi A4 (00 - 04)

The A4 is another big favourite with Irish buyers and they remain popular stretching right back the years. Inside there is a spacious cabin and it is nicely decked out and arranged. There are big comfortable seats and plenty of room as well as a large boot.  On the road, it is one of the best performers in the segment. It feels assured and ... more

Audi A4 (04 - 08)

The only really noticeable change is the front end. It has a more aggressive look, sporting the newly designed grille, but a lot of work was done under the skin to underline its status as one of the best prestige saloons on the road. It came with 16 different engines. It’s generally a front wheel drive but it does have the quattro ... more

Audi A4 (08 - 15)

This is a car that has the ability to be a class leader and is popular with Irish buyers. It is really spacious with room for up to five. There is ample storage space in the boot and it is easy to load. And there is a big range of frugal engines. Standard equipment levels are high as is the quality of the materials in the cabin. Audi really seem ... more

Audi A4 (15 - present)

The new A4 may not look hugely different to the previous model, but rest assured it's all new from the inside out. Based on a whole new platform (shared with the Q7 and Bentley Bentayga), it offers more space in the cabin and some very impressive new kit. This is car that never needed any help getting out of showrooms anyway but a powerful yet ... more

Audi A5 Cabriolet (09 - present)

Convertibles don’t come much classier than this replacement for the A4 Cabrio. It’s stylish, sporty and fun. While most of the rival convertibles had ditched the fabric roof, Audi stuck with it as it helps to save weight and boot space. It’s well insulated, which means minimum cabin noise. The hood can fold back into the boot in ... more

Audi A5 (09 - 16)

This is an intriguingly good looking car. It has plenty of room in the rear of the cabin and a sizeable boot, even without folding the seats down. The interior remains much the same as the coupe. It’s well designed; it looks and feels high-end while the layout of the cabin and dashboard emphasise how upmarket this really is. On the road, ... more
