When it comes to luxury German vehicle companies, there’s plenty of competition with the likes of BMW and Mercedes-Benz around, and Audi joins them as one of the leading brands in the automotive industry. The original company, founded by August Horch, became the Audi brand as we know it today in 1932 and first arrived in the UK in 1965.
Now established as one of the most successful and popular car manufacturers, Audi has an extensive range of car models for consumers to choose from. Whether it’s the popular A6 model for an executive ride; now on its 8th iteration which was released earlier this year, or the sporty feel of an R8, there are plenty of options.
Audi boasts style and an impressive level of performance to match across its range of vehicles, and its success is displayed by the impressive milestone reached in 2015 of 2 million sales since the brands arrival in the UK in 1965.

When Audi introduced the original A3 in 1996 it created the first successful premium small hatch, and the car would go on to become hugely popular. It was with the second take on the formula though, that Audi really got into its stride. Sharing the Volkswagen Golf's floorpan, the A3 featured a more upmarket interior and the understated styling for which the German brand is famous. With a lifespan of almost a decade, the second-generation A3 came with a huge choice of engines, trims, transmissions and bodystyles, which is why there's bound to be one for you.
The Audi A4 has always been desirable, but the Mk4 (internally known as the B8), launched in 2008, represented a quantum leap over its predecessors. Much better to drive than any previous edition, it also came with arguably the best cabin in the segment, sharp looks and a range of brilliant engines offering power and refinement with impressive economy. It's no wonder the A4 was so popular, but that's a double-edged sword as while there are plenty to choose from, the A4 is no longer exclusive. However, owners love them thanks to their brilliant build quality, refinement, spacious cabins and good dynamics. Buy one and you're unlikely to be disappointed.
If you want value for money, nowhere will you find more of it than in the luxury segment - something the Audi A8 demonstrates only too well. Available at astonishingly low prices, the A8 offers everything at ridiculously low prices - and running costs needn't be high either. Offered with some fantastic engines, including some amazingly frugal diesels, the A8's aluminium construction helps when it comes to agility and fuel efficiency, while the standard fitment of quattro four-wheel drive also ensures the A8 is more sure-footed than most rivals too. What's not to like?
Audi had never built an SUV before it introduced the Q7 in 2006, but you'd never know because this seven-seat SUV is impressive in so many ways. It's fast, refined, efficient, spacious, well-equipped, safe, comfortable and it also makes an excellent tow car. But such a massive machine comes with super-sized running costs, so expect to pay plenty for fuel, tyres, insurance, servicing and road tax too. But despite its premium positioning, some Q7s are run on a shoestring, which is why you must buy with care if you're shopping at the lower end of the price range. Don't settle for a patchy service history or cheap tyres - but find a cherished Q7 and you'll see why it's worth every penny.
One of the most distinctive cars on the road, the Audi TT has been hugely sought after ever since the first edition arrived in 1999. It's easy to see why; superbly built, great to drive, surprisingly practical and with some superb engines, the TT is one of the easiest sports cars to own. While most of its rivals are incredibly compromised, with the Audi TT you don't have to make too many sacrifices. In coupé form the hatchback configuration provides a surprising amount of carrying capacity while many cars come with four-wheel drive, so the fun can continue whatever the weather.
When it comes to coupes with style, few can compete with Audi's great-looking A5. But the beauty is more than skin deep as the A5 is also safe, reliable, highly equipped and the epitome of good taste. Also, while Audis have often been criticised for their disappointing dynamics, the A5 is much better than the company's usual offerings. It's still not the class best, but the A5 is great to drive, great to look at and beautifully built too. Opt for a car with the optional Sport package and the handling is even better, but comfort is adversely affected. So before you buy an A5, make sure it has the right engine, gearbox, wheels and suspension. Get it wrong and you might hate A5 ownership. But get it right, and the chances are you'll want to keep your A5 forever.
The Audi Quattro was the world's first production four-wheel drive performance car, so it was inevitable that the German brand would use the same technology to underpin an SUV when their popularity went stellar. Admittedly this took several decades, but when the original Q5 arrived in 2008 it deservedly proved a massive hit, with its luxurious cabin, sharp exterior design and efficient engines. In typical Audi fashion this road-biased SUV was easy and safe to drive rather than fun, but with VAG?s typical build quality and generous equipment levels it's easy to see why the Q5 barely depreciated for the first few years. Now the mid-sized 4x4 makes a great used buy.
Entering a new market segment often ends in tears, but when Audi unveiled its first ever supercar in 2006, it hit the bull's eye. Pitched against some seriously capable rivals, the Audi R8 wasn't just their equal - it could beat them. But despite genuine supercar looks and performance, the R8 is as easy to use as an A3 or A4, while running costs tend to be significantly lower than for similar machinery available elsewhere. With standard four-wheel drive to help get the power down, and a choice of brilliant engines and transmissions, could this be the perfect supercar?
