Audi boast one of the most complete and premium lineups, but which model has been the most popular across Europe?

Few premium car brands come as well-rounded as the German-based manufacturer. Thanks to their sleek design, eye-catching good looks and impressive technology, the Audi range offers the perfect blend of style and substance.

Boasting an array of fantastic SUVs, saloons and hot hatches, Audi has a wide range of options to choose from if you’re after an Audi business lease

If you're considering a company car, you might want to know which Audi models were the most popular across Europe last year. 

Using data from Car Sales Base*, we're counting down the top 10 best-selling Audi models from 2020 across Europe.

Audi TT blog

10) Audi TT – 7,525 models sold

Working its way into the top 10 best-selling Audi models is the famous TT and we must admit, we’re delighted to see it feature. 

A true modern classic, the TT has been a staple of the Audi lineup ever since its initial launch. It has come a long way since then and has even drawn comparisons to its bigger, faster brother, the R8. 

With increased sports styling and sleek interiors, there’s no reason why the TT can’t continue to shine as one of the most popular Audi models going forward.

Audi Q8 hybrid

9) Audi Q8 – 12,983 models sold

The Audi Q8 is a beautifully designed family car that can still turn heads inside and out. Audi describe the styling as ‘bold, luxurious and sporty’, and we couldn’t put it better ourselves.

Thanks to angular creases running across the body, plush interior and a sloping rear roofline, it certainly stands out from our Audi lease deals. With just over 600L of boot space, it's incredibly practical too. It's no surprise to see this comfortably inside the top 10.

Available as a hybrid, the Q8 would be ideal if you're not quite ready for an electric car lease.

Audi Q7 driving

8) Audi Q7 – 17,413 models sold

As premium seven-seaters go, the Audi Q7 ranks as one of the best options on the road, with unquestionable comfort levels and space.

I know what you're thinking; the only thing missing from this spacious and practical seven-seater is a mighty 507hp V8 petrol engine. Fear not! Choose the SQ7 and you'll enjoy those same levels of practicality with the addition of some mouth-watering power.

The Audi Q7 would be a compelling option for your next business car lease

Audi Q5 offroading

7) Audi Q5 – 53,523 models sold

If you’re looking for something that lives up to the name of an SUV, the Q5 delivers striking looks and huge road presence.

Not only does it look fantastic, but the Q5 offers a very practical space for your daily commute as well as for everyday life. The amount of room available for passengers in the rear is great, while you can't fault the comfort levels for those in the front either.

Audi RS6 parked

6) Audi A6/S6/RS6/Allroad - 55,737 models sold

The Audi A6 is living proof that executive saloons don’t need to be boring. With an exquisitely designed cabin and a wealth of impressive technology, the Audi A6 has one of the best interiors in its class.

Offering a refined driving experience, a great amount of practical space as well as the option for a hybrid engine, we see no reason why this won't be a model that continues to be a popular choice for years to come.

Audi Q2 driving

5) Audi Q2 – 57,825 models sold

The Audi Q2 comes in as the fifth most popular Audi model and we can't say we're surprised.

Recent facelifts have built on the successful foundations laid by the original Q2, which now offers trendy and sports styling to ensure it stands above many of its rivals within the small SUV class.

Audi A1 parked on cobbled street

4) Audi A1 – 58,224 models sold

The A1 might be the smallest model available within the Audi lineup, but that doesn't make it any less popular as it secures a spot in the top five best sellers.

It offers fantastic versatility. Whether you're searching for an exciting hot hatch with seriously eye-catching looks or a small car to drive to work in, the A1 can do it all.

Audi A4 saloon driving

3) Audi A4 /S4/RS4 – 77,515 models sold

Coming in as the third best-selling Audi model from 2020 is the A4. Widely considered as the premium saloon of choice, the A4, S4 and RS4 range is not only one of the most popular within the Audi lineup, but they are also one of the most sought after on the road today.

With fantastic fuel efficiency, beautiful interiors and class-leading technology, it is no surprise to see the A4 continue to be so popular.

Audi Q3 Sportback parked on ice

2) Audi Q3 – 89,789 models sold

With the demand for SUVs remaining as strong as ever, it comes as no surprise to see the Audi Q3 rank as the second best-selling Audi model from the previous 12 months.

There’s a good reason why the Q3 has become such a popular choice. It makes for a fantastic premium business SUV. Thanks to a wide range of trims available and the faster RS option, there are options for everyone.

Audi A3 parked in front of rockery

1) Audi A3 – 97,492 models sold

Accounting for the sales of the A3, RS3 and S3 models, the Audi A3 was the best-selling Audi model in 2020, with 97,492 cars sold.

After selling just short of 100,000 cars over the last 12 months, it is fair to say the A3 reigns supreme.

With the choice of either the Audi A3 Sportback or Saloon variant, you can experience its high-performance levels and effortless combination of comfort, style and practicality.
