S5 coupe for £299/month is an unbelievable deal. £1794 upfront (6 payments) and then 23 payments of £299.

£8671 for 2 years and 5k miles PA. Subject to VAT if personal lease.

The 1.4 TFSi is a good engine and was great in an A1 that I drove but it's surely going to struggle a bit with the extra weight of an A4.

I've driven quite a few different small-engined cars over the past year and have come to the conclusion that they're generally ok until you put something else in them (i.e. another person or shock, horror, several people, a couple of suitcases, etc), then the performance drops off rapidly and they struggle to go up hills. The worst of these was a Renault Captur with a 0.9 litre engine. 0.9!

Yep

Can change to 8k for only like £20 extra a month.

I commute 70-80 miles a day and use a diesel. Do less than 5k in my other car anyway so not a concern to me.

got the q3 in the end, 1.5 year old 6 k miles, had for few weeks and think made right choice,nice to drive around town which is main use,has the newer engine with cylinder on demand so more efficent. yet to take it out on the motorway to see what its like on longer higher speed runs, but not for seeing any issues. 1.4 tfsi engine for those interested sline trim

its less than 100 miles a week… but its there as they know full well anyone who is actually using the car will exceed it and they can catch you on it.
