Overview of the Audi A4

Learn about the Audi A4

Summary

Now in its fifth generation, the Audi A4 remains a common sight on Canadian roads. Audi's compact executive sedan blends turbocharged performance with standard all-wheel drive at a price point well below its luxury rivals. A wide range of engine and trim options allows you to pick the right model for your needs.

While some drivers may believe the A4's exterior design hasn't changed much in the last decade, they can't argue with the spacious interior. The A4 also has solid safety credentials, as well as many add-ons that provide advanced driver assistance.

Safety

Every Audi A4 model offers a suite of safety features. Even the earliest generations include four-wheel anti-lock braking systems (ABS) and airbags. Later generations include front seat knee airbags, helping the A4 earn the IIHS Top Safety Pick+ rating. Standard four-wheel drive means the A4 copes well in all seasons.

Other safety features in newer models, from 2015, include:

  • Blind spot warning system, optional on the Premium Plus
  • Standard front side and full-length side curtain airbags
  • Adaptive cruise control, which alerts you and applies the brakes if it detects an impact is imminent—included in the Prestige
  • Optional rearview camera and front and rear parking sensors

Interior

The Audi A4 has long been known for its premium interiors. Older models featured cloth or leather seats, while models from 2010 are exclusively leather. A range of colour choices includes black, rich brown or light grey. Every modern A4 comes with heated front seats.

For an additional price, drivers can choose these features:

  • Heated leather steering wheel
  • Ventilated front seats with memory function to remember your personal seat settings
  • Heated rear seats

Technology

Like most luxury cars, the Audi A4 comes with an array of technology features. Many of these are add-ons, but a rearview camera, tire pressure monitoring system and remote keyless entry are all standard on 2018+ models—otherwise, they come with premium trims or navigation packages in models from 2009. 

Not all of the A4's tech focuses on safety. An optional Bang & Olufsen sound system plays music through 19 speakers. Audi's optional Virtual Cockpit replaces the traditional driver dials with a multimedia screen. The Multi Media Interface (MMI) controls most functions and is one of the easiest of its type to use.

Space

A 2,820 mm wheelbase gives the Audi A4 a surprising amount of space for a compact sedan. Rear-seat occupants may find legroom to be limited, depending on the front seat position. The A4's trunk is a reasonable size, but the rear seats can't be folded flat, restricting the total storage space. 

Comfort

Passengers will enjoy the A4's comfortable seats, no matter the material. The A4 will fit a family of five and welcomes the family dog with a range of pet-friendly accessories. Even in its sportier trims, the A4 rides smoothly, making long-distance trips ache-free. 

Frequently asked questions about the Audi A4

If you're buying used, we recommend budgeting a little more for parts than a mainstream car. Newer Audis come with an industry-competitive 4 year/80,000km warranty.

Audi's quattro all-wheel drive system is one of the most well-regarded in the industry. The A4 comes with this system as a standard.

Like fellow German companies BMW and Mercedes-Benz, Audi is a luxury car maker. This translates to higher quality interior trim, more powerful engines, and increased technology over mainstream brands.

The current A4 is speedy, thanks to standard turbo power. The base 188hp model will hit 100km/h in 7.4 seconds. Higher performance models drop that number to 6.0 seconds.

The current A4 starts at $39,800, thousands less than its main German rivals. That price can rise up to $52,600 (before options) for the 45 TFSI Technik model.
