Pros and Cons of the Audi A4

Thinking of buying a new Audi A4? Audi has always had a spotless reputation among upscale car manufacturers, offering an unbeatable combination of solid over-all performance, fuel economy, luxury and price. The latest version of the A4 can certainly hold its own even against its more popular rival, BMW. The latest Audi A4 has increased firepower and improved running gears, including additional features such as adjustable steering, throttle and suspension settings. This new version also offers features such as lane assistance, active steering, blind-spot monitor, climate control and a Bang and Olufsen sound system. And of course, the Audi A4 won’t be an Audi without their signature Quattro All-wheel drive.  If you are looking for a sturdy and high quality car that won’t burn a gaping hole in your pockets, you might find that the A4 is the car for you. 

Pros

The best thing about the A4 is that despite the fact that it has less power compared with a similar BMW, its engines are powerful enough to keep up with your needs while remaining quite an economical model, when you take into consideration its specially tuned engine and 4WD. Another plus is that it has very low CO2 emissions, making them a more environment-friendly choice. The Audi A4 is usually sold with a diesel engine but if you prefer, there are also petrol units available. However, as most reviewers agree, the 1.8 and 2.0 liter diesel engine models are the ones that perform really well. 

The A4 can also be virtually noiseless – wind and suspension noise won’t be bothering you, unlike in other models. The only times that it might be gruffer than usual is when its engines are revved up to its limits, especially when it comes to the 1.8 and 2.0 liter models.

When it comes to space and practicality, the A4 certainly delivers giving you more than ample legroom, allowing you to move comfortably. The boot of the A4 is also comparatively larger than that of the Mercedes C-Class, giving you that much needed space.

Lastly, the Audi A4 has certainly amped up its features with its Basic SE 17-inch alloy trim, climate and cruise control, Bluetooth and rear parking sensors. You certainly get a lot considering that this car is relatively inexpensive compared with its competitors, the BMW 3 series and Mercedes Class C. Aside from that, the A4 allows for upgrade on its diesel engine model and Sporty S line so you can have a leather upholstery, large alloys and lower sports suspension. 

Cons

Definitely, the A4 is not the sportiest car within its class, especially when compared to its direct rivals, the BMW and Mercedes C-Class. However, it can still provide you with a relatively nice ride. The handling is well-balanced and it does grip the road well, but the road comfort that the A4 offers can be its downfall, too. The A4 tends to take too much time and effort even on apparently smooth roads/  Also while the handling is quite balanced, there are times when the steering weights of the A4 tend to have that rather rubbery feel – quite jarring, especially while on the road. 

Also while the A4’s boot does give lots of room, the latter’s seats for some reason, do not lay completely flat when folded up. When the seats are folded, the Mercedes definitely wins over the A4 in this aspect.

History of the Audi A4

The Audi A4 is a compact car that has started production in 1994. This Audi model spans four generations and follows the design pattern of Volkswagen’s B platform vehicles. The A4 comes in saloon, sedan, wagon, or estate models.

The first generation Audi A4 debuted late 1994 and was manufactured till 2001. This model followed the Group B5 platform of Volkswagen. The A4 was also the launching pad of the latest tiptronic automatic transmission of Volkswagen’s B5 platform. Drivers chose between a 1.6 or 2.8 litre petrol engine and 1.9 lire diesel engine when the car was first released in the European market. The first generation underwent a makeover during the stretch from 1997 to 2001. The newer 2.8 litre 30 valve V6 engine was also installed during the makeover.

The second generation A4, also known as the B6, entered the market in 2001 to 2005. The second generation A4 moved from the B5 platform to the Group B6 platform of Volkswagen. The A4 retained the 1.6 lire power plant but upgraded the engines. This generation A4 was an innovator during its time. The A4 debuted the multitronic produced by LuK. The multitronic was a continuously variable transmission that replaced the old automatic transmission used by most front wheel drive vehicles at the time.     

The latest generation of the A4 debuted in late 2007 to present. This vehicle followed the Audi Modular Longitudinal Platform.
