Audi A4 Overview

The A4 sports sedan has a solid, high-quality feel and top-grade interior appointments. Agile handling makes it fun to drive, and the firm ride is supple and controlled. The 2.0-liter, turbo four-cylinder is mated to an eight-speed automatic, which contributed to a very respectable 25 mpg overall in our tests even with the optional all-wheel drive. That engine got a modest horsepower boost for 2014. FWD versions use a CVT automatic. Tight rear seating and complex controls are demerits. The high-performance S4 sedan comes with a 333-hp, supercharged V6. We can no longer recommend the A4 because it scored a Poor in the IIHS small-overlap crash test.

A subscription to ConsumerReports.org includes Consumer Reports road test reports (based on over 50 different tests).
