      I love your reviews Mat but about A4 looking like an old A4 because many makers these days don't change much for example Jaguar , BMW 3 , 1, 5 series hasn't changed since 2007 , some of Mercedes cars haven't changed much either many car makers including Porsche . And we gonna see this more in lots of car companies so its not just A4 in this video but 3 series looks the same as the 2007 generation and the next jaguar I can bet it won't be too different from this one even C Class . And the fake exhaust on Audi and Benz its a matter of time before other manufacturers start doing it too . I personally think its more of decoration so we should get used to it same as touchscreen infotainment we will get used to it as we are all now used to our touchscreen phone . So there is no point criticizing coz most manufacturers will start producing touchscreen infotainment.

      I've always maintained that if it is SPORT you are after, a BMW is your best bet and if it is LUXURY you are after, a Mercedes is your best bet. However, if you want something which lies in-between which also holds more practicality, an Audi is your car. But you have to be careful, in my country (South Africa), resale values for Mercedes are the highest of the bunch, followed by BMW and Audi. So you have to weigh your options quite carefully. Quite frankly, Jaguar is an alternative premium/ luxury brand for us.

      Hard to choose between the Audi and the Mercedes for me but if both were in front of me for free, the Mercedes would be my choice. It just as something about it. An air of quality.

      Almost all reviewers agree that the A4 is best...even though it is FWD or AWD...the RWD premiumness is nonsense. And i have a 330i MSport. I agree....that the best is...Audi A4 Quattro.

      XE interior is pretty awful. I wish it was better and more modern. A4 wiped the floors of all of those what came into interior. Overall A4 looked the best to my eyes outside too. If it weren't for that horrible rear in XE, I would have think it looked the best.

      A4- everything you need, in a well aging classy design. The rest will age terribly. The wheels on the Mercedes are outdated from day 1, and the rest already look like they are from 2005...

      the rest is out the window, no gimmicks or tricks. Bless you Audi.
