The A4 has long been known (and liked) for its no-nonsense, button-down appearance, a theme that carries into this newest generation. It’s more aerodynamic than before and slightly larger, with increased interior room in all dimensions, and yet weight is down a tad.
The sole engine remains a turbocharged 2-liter four-cylinder, now with a hearty 248 horsepower. A seven-speed dual-clutch automated manual transmission comes standard, and Audi’s Quattro all-wheel drive system is available on all models. Comes fully equipped with leather upholstery, power front seats, a sunroof, a rearview camera, tri-zone climate control, aluminum interior trim, a 10-speaker sound system with satellite radio, and 17-inch wheels (18s available). The collision mitigation system (known as Pre Sense) tightens seatbelts and closes all windows if a front impact is imminent. The optional Convenience package adds driver memory, keyless ignition and access, and heated side mirrors. There’s also a Navigation Plus package with a navigation system, HD radio, and Bluetooth audio. For a more aggressive feel, you can add the Sport package with a firmer suspension, sport seats, and a black headliner. Heated front seats are a standalone option.
