Audi is a German manufacturer with a great reputation that offers models for all kind of users; you can find everything from a top of the range sports car to a family car with plenty of space,and also at a good price if you are looking for a second-hand Audi.
It descends from the Horch company, which started to produce its first vehicle in 1901. Due to legal disputes and after a change of company, the name Audi was eventually taken, which translates from into Latin from Horch in German, meaning "hear" or "listen".
If you want to buy a second-hand Audi, we can tell you that it is a brand that offers durability and quality in its finishes. They are cars that stand out especially for their interior care, being some of the best on the market. Let's take a look at some of the most popular models:
The Audi A3 is a premium compact car, the equivalent of a BMW 1-series or a Mercedes A-Class. It is undoubtedly one of the most demanded models and offers a quality beyond any doubt. What is an Audi A3 like and what features does it offer?
There are petrol and diesel versions, from 116hp to 150hp, with a choice of manual or automatic transmission; in general they offer good performance in relation to fuel consumption. It is a car that is easy to drive both in town and on the road, and its fuel consumption is low so you won't spend too much on filling up the tank. In diesel the lowest consumption is 3.7 l/100km, while the highest consumption is recorded by the 1.8 petrol engine at 6.7 litres/100km, not bad for what it offers; this has been achieved in part thanks to cylinder activation on demand, so they will only work if they are needed. The 1.0 TFSI version may be the best option if we are looking for a second-hand car with good value for money, its low consumption makes it a cheap car to maintain and has plenty of power for all kinds of situations.
Inside we have a boot of 365 litres that can be extended if we fold down the seats, a good capacity if we compare it with cars in the same segment. When we sit down, the first thing we notice is the luxury and care with which they have created the interior of this car, you will feel as if you were in one of a much higher range. The steering is smooth and effortlessly manoeuvrable, which is appreciated in the city.
Standard equipment includes alloy wheels, xenon headlights, light and rain sensors, climate control, Bluetooth and a multimedia system. If you're looking for the best value for money, the Design Edition version is definitely worth the money. In addition to the standard equipment, the Design Edition version offers parking sensors, cruise control and mixed leather and fabric seats or connectivity with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto among many other features.

Audi S3, a powerful car with adaptive suspension
Those in need of a compact but powerful vehicle should take a look at the Audi S3, a model that is even more exclusive than the A3.

Among the engine options are diesel and petrol versions. In diesel it offers an output ranging from 136 hp in its most basic version to 347 hp in the 3.0 TDI, while in the petrol version the engines with 150 hp are quite efficient. We also find engines with 245hp power in the 4-cylinder version and can reach 450 hp, available only in the Audi RS4 Avant, and for thrill-seekers.
Audi A4 offers a wide variety of technologies and driving aids. The quality of its materials and digital dashboard, are undoubtedly some aspects to highlight this model. The comfort you feel when driving make this car the ideal travel companion, either to go to work every day or for long journeys.

Alternatives to this model include the BMW 3-series and Mercedes C-Class. New models are priced from 30,000 euros, so it may be worth checking the availability of this model on the second-hand market to see if it is available. Hopefully we can find a pre-owned Audi or one in good condition that suits our needs.
The Audi coupe and convertible par excellence is called the A5 and is available as a coupe, sedan or cabrio. Those looking for an Audi convertible with a luxury finish can take a look at this model, which also has a number of features that make it an option to consider.
It is the perfect car for families who want to stand out from the crowd and don't want to buy an SUV. Its interior, as usual in Audi, achieves excellence with a finish that looks solid and durable, every little detail is taken care of and the sensations it produces are extraordinary.
The design of the A5 is striking with its attractive lines, and it is available in diesel or petrol versions with power outputs ranging from 190 hp to 347 hp. The transmission is front-wheel drive, although the more powerful versions of the Audi A5 include four-wheel drive, for those looking for greater control in difficult terrain and do not care too much about the increased fuel consumption. It has different driving modes, being the comfort mode the one that will give us the best sensations at the wheel; a perfect car to cover long distances and with a quiet engine at low revs that will undoubtedly delight those who can afford it.
It is available with a 6-speed manual gearbox or an S-tronic or Tiptronic automatic transmission. It is an expensive car if you buy it new, so it is advisable to look for it in second-hand dealerships in case there is one with a low mileage.
The Audi Q2 is the brand's compact SUV model, being the little brother of the Audi Q3, another of the brand's crossovers. It is characterised by being the luxury alternative to other cars in its range, offering luxury finishes in a compact car that is easy to drive in the city.

It also comes equipped with signal detection, rear sensor, brake assist, blind spot detection, parking assist and other driving aids. Although it is a compact SUV, the boot is spacious with 405 litres of load space and the design of the boot makes it easy to load heavy items. The multi-function steering wheel provides plenty of controls so you don't have to take your eyes off the road, so you can answer a call or change the volume of the music.
It is available in diesel and petrol options, with power outputs ranging from 115 to 190 hp. It is also available with S-Tronic automatic transmission and all-wheel drive. The Audi Q2 is available with diesel and petrol engines between 116 and 190 hp, as well as automatic alternatives with 7-speed S-Tronic transmission and all-wheel drive. The 1.0 option with 116 hp power is fun to drive and feels powerful enough for almost any situation, but ultimately the decision will depend on your budget and needs.
Driving it with progressive steering is a delight, it adapts depending on the situation you're in. It will be smooth when we go to park, and of greater hardness in the displacements by highway. If you are interested, this Audi model is usually very well priced second-hand and pre-owned with a low mileage.
What are the differences between design and sport edition? They are only aesthetic differences, so you can choose the one you like best.
Those looking for the most powerful option of this model should look at the Audi SQ2 with 300 hp, acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.8 seconds and a top speed of 250 km/h. 4 tailpipes and 19-inch wheels.
Audi Q3 is the evolution of the Q2, it is still a compact SUV but this time we have more space and more technological equipment inside.
It is a high-end car, something that is noticeable after the first contact. Its interior reminds us of the Audi Q7, but smaller; luxury equipment and numerous extras that manage to entice whoever sits inside and can afford the higher outlay. A higher initial outlay, because its maintenance costs will remain low, so if you want a luxury car but that is cheap to maintain it can be an option; if we find it second-hand or pre-owned, the initial outlay will be lower, so it may be better suited to the budget. It is ideal for families due to its spaciousness and sliding rear seats, with an uncluttered design that appeals to a wide age range.
Its 150 hp 1.5 petrol engine offers enough power for all situations with fuel consumption that shouldn't exceed 5.6 litres/100 km officially, diesel engines are also available for those who do a lot of kilometres per year. If you prefer electric power, there are options with electric motors.
The interior is large with good quality finishes and a modern design, with an overall feel of good materials. The boot has a capacity of up to 530 litres, although this is a variable size thanks to the sliding rear seats. Standard equipment ranges from driving aids to digital instrumentation, emergency call and rear camera.
New pricing starts at 35,000 euros and competition could be the BMW X1, Mercedes GLA or Volvo XC40.
The Audi Q5 is a family car with a refined interior that is comfortable to drive over long distances; it's big and heavy but feels agile behind the wheel.
It comes standard with the quattro ultra all-wheel drive system, which is initially deactivated to save fuel but will help on difficult surfaces. Also optional is the Audi Drive Select system, with which you can choose the driving mode at any time, varying the hardness of the shock absorber and changing the ground clearance of the vehicle in 5 stages.
The instrument panel is digital, with a 10.1" screen and a multimedia system compatible with Apple and Android. The interior is luxurious and detailed, the boot has a capacity of 550 litres and up to 1550 litres if you choose to recline the rear seats, plus an automatic tailgate as standard, which opens at the touch of a button. As an added practicality, the rear seats can be slid and folded down individually.
The Q5 is sold in all variants with the ECO or Zero Emissions label with micro-hybrid powertrains and a plug-in engine with up to 204 hp, albeit much more expensive.
The Audi Q5 aims to rival the Mercedes GLC or BMW X3 and is priced from around 49,000 euros new, so if we can find it second hand we can save a few euros. For just over 30,000 euros we should be able to get a second-hand Audi Q5 with a couple of years and less than 25,000 kilometres; pre-owned it can start at around 40,000.
