    A5 2.0tdi ultra or 3.0 tdi?

    Hi guys, I am about to change my car and I need a little help from people who have experience with the A4s and/or A5s (2017 onwards). Which diesel engines are the most reliable? I have been looking the 3.0 tdi and the 2.0 tdi ultra. My commute is 140 miles/day on motorway. Thank you in advance.
