Audi A4

The Audi A4 is an entry level luxury sedan from the German automaker that is currently in its fourth generation. Introduced in 1994 with a four door saloon as well as a five door Avant model with the wagon only 2000 RS4 sitting at the top of the heap with a Biturbo 2.7 Liter V6 that made 375 HP and 325 lb-ft of torque. The A4 was redesigned with a few new bloated body lines in 2001, this allowed the way for a 4.2 Liter V8 making 339 HP and 302 lb-ft of torque to go under the S4's hood while the car would accele3rate from 0 to 60 MPH in under 5 seconds. In 2005 the A4 was redesigned once again with more aggressive curves and the S4 was powered by the same V8 as before except that a new RS4 with FSI technology making 420 HP. The A4's current shape came in 2008 with a refreshing of the entire line. In order to accommodate fuel economy issues, the high output S4 will be powered by a smaller supercharged V6.

The Audi A4 has been one of those “love it” or “hate it” models for some time, thanks to its conservative body style and rather mundane updates over the years. For 2016, Audi brought the fifth-generation A4 into showrooms, and as expected, it’s more of a facelift than the evolution we hoped for. Highlights of the new-gen model include a more defined grille with sharper points, larger and more aggressive corner air intakes, new layout for the headlight and taillight lenses, and is slightly larger over its predecessor. Inside, the car took on more gracious changes that include a cleaner dash and center stack, standard LED lighting, lightweight seats, a new MMI infotainment system with 4G LTE connectivity, and Audi’s virtual cockpit sitting behind the steering wheel. In the drivetrain department, the A4 got a range of updated engines that range in output from 148 to 268 horsepower.

While Audi went with its traditional ways and did little to the exterior, it did come correct for a new-gen model on the inside. Plus, the car has a rather large range of engines, depending on the market, that will suit just about anyone’s need. Plus, since the A4 is a bit larger than before, which translates into more passenger room and cargo space. Of course, for those who fall into the “love it” category the minor changes outside will be clearly overshadowed by the long list of improvements inside. With that said, check out the full review below to learn about everything Audi brought to the A4 for the 2016 model year.

Updated 01/07/2016: Audi announced that the all-new A4 will be making its North American debut at the 2016 Detroit Auto Show and will be put on sale in the spring of 2016 at a starting price of $37,300.
