The editors of Automotive Magazine named the Audi A4 best in class, period.
IIHS Award: Top Safety Pick
This is what we mean when we say luxury has progressed.
It's not enough to simply give luxurious appointments to a cabin. They have to be thought through, designed for a comprehensive luxury experience. Something you see as much as you feel. Fortunately, the Audi A4 is filled with such thoughtful appointments that they create the perfect environment for the driver and passengers. Genuine wood and aluminum inlays provide the materials for a precise fit and finish, available keyless start, stop, and entry offers premium convenience, and leather seating surfaces cater to comfort as much as the eyes. Luxury has progressed because we design it for you, not for you to adapt to it.
Control that rewards life's arbitrary impulses.
Pick a song. Pick a person to talk to. Pick a destination. It's your whim, as the available intuitive settings and controls on the Audi MMI® give the driver a world of commands within arm's reach. Its available BLUETOOTH® phone capabilities, using voice commands and ability to "read" your phonebook using speech-to-text technology, speed the A4 into our new technological age.
quattro® All-wheel Drive
Permanent all-wheel drive systems are not created equal. And they certainly don't perform that way, either. quattro® is essentially a mechanical system devised around a torque-sensing, self-locking, center differential that shifts torque instantaneously to where it's needed. This means quattro® is adjusting power between front and rear axles more than 100 times a second, helping ensure torque is delivered to the wheels where traction exists. Under normal driving situations, quattro® distributes the power between each axle by sending 40 percent to the front wheels and 60 percent to the rear wheels, enhancing the driving dynamics while helping maintain optimum control. Constantly assessing grip, quattro® ensures the best possible combination of traction and handling, regardless of the road conditions.
The thrust of the matter when it comes to performance.
It's not just about power, it's about how power feels-that's really the crux of performance. The Audi A4 presents drivers with the classic combination of speed and efficiency. And it flexes finely tuned muscles at your command, while weight saving features turn its 2.0T four cylinder engine into a six cylinder power profile. When you feel the impressive torque, the 258 lb-ft force that comes when you hit the throttle, that's when you know the simple difference between numbers and what actually moves you.
