The Audi A4 has a nicely finished interior, comfortable ride and secure handling, but it lacks the agility of other cars in this segment. Further, the engine is noisy and unrefined. Our A4 came with all-wheel drive for added foul-weather traction. The interior shows excellent attention to detail and crash test results are impressive.
