Top 5 Tuesdays: Best Audis Ever Produced

May 12, 2015

Top 5 Tuesdays is back – and this week, all eyes are on Audi. The German giant is known for its inventive designs and innovation throughout the motoring world, but how exactly does Audi stay at the top of its game? Today, we’re looking at 5 of the best Audis ever produced – and while most Audi reviews concentrate on the classics, we’re keeping it current. If you fancy getting your hands on one of these beauties but need help with Audi finance, we can help there, too. Let’s go.

Audi TT

When it comes to design, the Audi TT is a front runner – posing a serious threat to rivals like the BMW 4 Series. The TT comes in at £29,810 and even the entry-level Sport trim is impressive. The basic spec comes kitted out with 18 inch alloy wheels, Bluetooth, air-con and leather seats – while the S line trim includes rain-sensing wipers and 19 inch alloys. Climb into the cabin and the TT’s interior is made exclusively from high quality materials with a delightfully user-friendly dashboard. Engine options in the TT include a 227bhp or 306bhp 2.0 litre petrol or a 181bhp 2.0 litre diesel. If you’re concerned with economy, the Audi TT Ultra TDI diesel returns 67mpg and emits 110g/km of CO2 – resulting in an annual road tax fee of just £20.

Audi Q5

The Audi Q5 comes powered by a 178bhp or 222bhp 2.0 litre petrol engine – but for maximum pulling power, a diesel would be the way to go. The 2.0 litre diesel powertrains come with either 148bhp or 175bhp, with the latter being more suitable for this SUV. The Q5 starts off at £31,720 and 18 inch alloys, leather seats and rear parking sensors are just some of the kit the basic SE comes equipped with. For a sportier feel, the S line adds xenon headlights – while the S line Plus comes with metallic paint options and Sat Nav as standard. There’s plenty of seat and steering wheel adjustment, meaning drivers of any height should be able to get comfortable – and the raised driving position ensures good all-round visibility.

Audi R8 Coupe

As you’d expect, the highly sought after Audi R8 comes in at a pricey £93,785. Engine options include a 4.2 V8 or 5.2 V10, with even the less powerful engine sprinting from 0-62mph in below 5 seconds. While there are plenty of optional extras available, the luxurious R8 is more than generously kitted out. Standard equipment features 19 inch alloys, Sat Nav, climate control and a sexy leather interior.

Audi A3

The Audi A3 Saloon has a starting price of £23,335 and is available in Sport and S line trims. The Sport model includes sports seats, Bluetooth and dual-zone climate control – while the S line adds xenon headlights and larger alloys. Measuring 15cm longer than the Audi A3 Sportback, the Saloon boasts a substantial boot capacity of 425 litres. When it comes to performance, the 2.0 litre TDI comes with 148bhp or 182bhp, managing 0-62mph in 8.6 and 7.4 secs respectively. In terms of petrol engines, the 148bhp 1.4 litre TFSI packs plenty of punch – powering from 0-62mph in 8.2 secs.

Audi A1

There are four engine options in the Audi A1, ranging from a 1.0 litre and two 1.4 litre petrols to a 1.6 litre diesel. For a town runner, the 1.0 litre petrol is more than capable but both 1.4 litres are better motorway performers. The basic spec will cost you just £14,355 but, if you’re looking for the best economical option, the diesel is the way to go. The 1.6 litre emits just 92g/km of CO2 and returns aq hefty 80.7mpg – making it cheap to run and exempt from road tax. There are three trims available with the A1, including the entry-level SE which comes equipped with air conditioning and alloy wheels. For sports seats and Bluetooth as standard, opt for the Sport trim.
