Seen as Audi lease deals are the rave, I found the following if your mileage is within 8000 miles/year

There's no fee mentioned but I wouldn't assume the absence of one means it's fee free. Main Dealer so possibly negotiable to get rid of a car.

Audi Milton Keynes
£196.70 on a 6 +23 = £5704 plus any processing fee (£300 max i would suggest)

SE model can be had here for £5038.54. Again 8,000 miles/yr and check if there is fee
3 + 23 * £193.79

Anyone want to play lease deal bingo?

* Do I get the deposit back?
* Do I keep the car?
* I can get a used car for less
* Do I have to fix scratches?

* Mileage is too low

I'd offer prizes for closest post number for each, but responses alone should be reward enough...

No virtual cockpit (which is awesome), fancy 3d satnav with google maps, audi connect or wireless charging (£1450 extra). If they aren't important then not a bad price, otherwise this is better value imo hotukdeals.com/dea…059
Thanks, currently have the a4 1.4 sport which is ending in March so starting to look for the next deal. Happy Christmas!
Its 6 months upfront on this 196.70 by the looks of it

Poor if you are taking it on a track I agree, but the chances are this car won't be taken on the track. In every other situation, how can this be classed as poor?

Yes, poor for track use, and poor if you want to overtake anyone, pull out in that elusive patch in the traffic, drive without thrashing the pants off it just to keep up with everyone else, or get anywhere quickly. Should I go on?

Perfectly capable of keeping up with traffic though it's a lease car so engine longevity is hardly a concern. Looking forward to you posting a 'suitable' lease deal.

A bog standard Astra 1.4t is faster Ffs and about £10k cheaper.

In the same RRP bracket a BMW 320 is loads faster too.

I have driven plenty of cars slower than this that are adequate for normal driving. I choose to have a car significantly quicker than this but that is far from a necessity.

Erm, you're saying this car will be incapable of over taking a lot of common cars out there?
Either your version of overtaking is within a very short distance/time that is beyond what most people consider safe and reasonable or there are a lot of powerful cars out there. Liek every other car is a sports variant.

For a start, RAC published (albeit 2.5 years ago but there's a very recent one on WhatCar) a report of most common cars on UK roads.
Here's your top 5
Ford Focus: 1,483,000
Ford Fiesta: 1,454,000
Vauxhall Corsa: 1,205,000
Vauxhall Astra: 1,170,000
Volkswagen Golf: 1,020,000

Now unless the majority are RS/ST/VXR/GTI/R then I shudl think this Audi should be capable of overtaking them when safe to do so.


I drive a drive a 2.0 diesel that has more power (and abviously torque, so i would probably find this aud comparatively sluggish but I wouldn't write it off as slow if it was capable of teh sprint it says it is.

The 320i is paired up against the 2.0tfsi in terms of position in the ranges, but as you say like for like (M Sport and Sline) the 320i is the one similar in price. Whether real world cost is the same I dunno, can't say I have seen 3 series on leases this cheap recently.

Ah so your examples are of a smaller car that weighs 100kg less and probably more aerodynamic and another one that has larger displacement engine.

Obviously there are faster cars than this but there's hardly loads of different ones out there that moves the benchmark for 1.4 engine into the sub 8 second category. If that was the case then yes, this would be generally considered slow.

the point wasn't about comparing the car for ownership. The point was about most common cars on the road are bog standard ones which you shouldn't have to try excessively hard to overtake.
just because the 0-62 time is 8.7, it doesn't mean overtaking isn't safely possible - unless you plan to overtake from a standstill. What's more relevant is time it takes between 30-70 to reflect real world overtaking ability. Good deal, would not buy, but fine for lease. Engine imho is too small for the A4, ok in a smaller class such as A1 or similar models across VAG group.

Please do, none of them apply to a car which does 0-60 in 8.7 seconds. 14 seconds possibly, but not this car.

What do you consider an acceptable 0-60 time for the road?

In fairness some people just want a nice car, a nice interior, don’t necessarily worry about the speed. I’ve gone from a Golf R to this and it’s not quite as slow as you’re making out.
deleted103252018th Dec 2017

Quite serious, it's slow by today's standards.


No it's not, <9 seconds 0-60 is fine for most day to day driving. If anyone is particularly bothered there's plenty of other engine choices 1.8, 2.0, 3.0 TFSI or 2.0, 3.0 TDI with plenty of different outputs but 150 bhp is enough to do the odd overtake or pull the skin off of some milk.

My company car is a 2.0 TDI with 150 bhp and it's absolutely fine, my own car is a <5.0 second 0-60 car and in comparison to that it's still got enough power.

Agreed, but it comes part and parcel with refinement.
Refinement isn't revving the ass of it to keep up with traffic.
Its all relative, surely? It’s quite slow compared to a car that does 0-60 in five secs, but quick compared to a Skoda Yeti that does it 0-60 in 15 secs. Surely if you want something nippier, then you buy the bigger engine and take the hit on tax and mileage.

I know somebody with one of these and have never heard him complain about it. He also thought it was nippy compared to the 150hp 1.8 Astra he got rid of.

I think it's like pulling teeth too (when I have driven stuff over 10s 0-60) but that doesn't make it a bad deal. I like something with poke but not everyone cares about that. Also not sure of what there is in this price bracket (in lease terms) in this size of car that is significantly faster other than the Octavia VRS.

It's not just about 0-60 times, it's about torque. This is massively underpowered for a family saloon like this. This thing couldn't pull the skin off a bowl of custard. Put 2 or 3 passengers in this, and a little luggage in the boot, and try overtaking that guy doing 45mph on a B-road with one of these, absolutely no chance. You'll drop a gear, put your foot down, and nothing will happen. You'll end up stuck on the wrong side of the road praying to god you get passed him before you have a head on collision. Each to their own as I said before, but you're not going to convince me that this big lump of a thing is good for anything other than following a funeral procession.
Most - nay, ALL the folk slating the 1.4T in this A4 have blatantly never driven one.

It's more than adequate. Overtaking is easy (as with any overtake - where it is appropriate and done with common sense). We have one of these engines in an A3 - 150bhp is more than the A4 used to have in diesel 2.0 TDI, when it was quite a bit heavier.

Yes, torque is important, but no, this is not an issue when driving in general - or overtaking - in this car.

Audi would simply not allow a dog of an engine to plague one of their key models - especially when it is going to be sold in bulk to recoup from margin in sales on the second hand market. This model/engine combo is expected to be the top selling A4 for some time.
