A stunning cruiser is exactly the kind of car we would expect Audi to be producing, the refinement levels are unrivalled and stylistically the men with the pencils at Ingolstadt have got it spot on. The S-line model we tried does suffer from a slight lack of tech you'd expect in rivals (no reversing camera as standard), but the comfort levels will not be matched, and what more could you need in a car for which the word 'wafting' could have been invented? The astonishing interior quality, added to the matchless ride and stunning visuals, means this is a tough car to overlook.
Price of our car (S line 3.0 TDI quattro S tronic) £56,580 (inc £3,020 of optional extras)
