The latest eighth generation A4 has to be Audi's most serious contender in the compact executive car stakes when compared to BMW and Mercedes rivals, with over 430,000 delivered to UK buyers.

I got to drive most versions at the international launch in Portugal late last year with mixed views. So I was keen to drive the greenest and most fleet-friendly TDie 163 Avant that wasn't available then, at the A4's UK launch.
