  • If driving pleasure is what you desire look no further than the BMW 3-series or else Audi A4 emerges clear winner with attention to detail inside and out. The day time running LEDs are to die for, it feels more luxurious and better built than the Merc and BMW. Priced at Rs 29.09 lakh (Ex-showroom price, Bangalore) it is the most complete car of the trio both to drive and to be driven in. Sure, it feels a tad underpowered but offers improved handling owing to its five-link suspension layout and well weighted steering. The 13.5kmpl fuel efficiency is a plus. Though not as great to drive as the BMW, it is a more comfortable and usable everyday car. It has the maximum interior room, best rear seat comfort and the best interiors. Hail the new class leader, the new A4, refined, desirable, practical, beautifully built and priced right.
