The Audi A4 remained highly competitive. In fact, this A4 was nearly everything a compact sports sedan should be. It has a solid, high-quality feel and the interior is exquisite. Agile handling makes it fun to drive and the ride, though quite firm, is supple and controlled. The cabin is quiet unless you ask the turbocharged four-cylinder engine to work hard.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again. The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.

Driving Experience

What Owners Say

"electric power steering wanders off center on the highway"

Anonymous, CT (2013 Audi A4)

"When moving the steering feels like it's ratcheting as you move the steering wheel."

R H., OH (2013 Audi A4)

"very good acceleration and handling"

DAN M., PA (2013 Audi A4)

"Turbo provides great acceleration and economy"

GARY C., SC (2013 Audi A4)

"More me the car has turned out to be a good compromise among various factors: Acceleration and handling are very good for a car in its price range and with its engine size. I am pleased with the car's gearing. The 6-gear manual transmission is geared well to give performance when needed and and fuel economy (35 mph highway) when desired."

Anonymous, MI (2013 Audi A4)

"Excellent acceleration! Best handling around turns and curves I have ever experienced. Really fun to drive."

LEIGH M., VA (2013 Audi A4)

"tight German engineering."

TERRY P., AL (2013 Audi A4)

"The transmission is a CVT it hesitates when initially engaged and kicks up very quickly when the turbo kicks in. Very sensitive."

LARRY M., FL (2013 Audi A4)

"Good handling"

Anonymous, MA (2013 Audi A4)

"This car takes winding roads beautifully. I live in a mountainous area. Driving up and down 5,200 feet. This car hugs the road and feels safe doing so."

JULIA L., CA (2013 Audi A4)


Includes seats, climate control, noise, and ride

What Owners Say

"Seating less comfortable than q5 seats"

HOWARD W., IN (2013 Audi A4)

"Climate control is not automatic enough. I always have to adjust."

ROBERT K., MO (2013 Audi A4)

"The sport package is great! The upgraded seats are wonderful. The upgraded suspension stiffens up the ride and makes it more sporty without being too jarring"

TRAVIS P., WI (2013 Audi A4)

"Great comfort for long rides cruising on the highway"

GARY C., SC (2013 Audi A4)

Percentage of owners who would definitely purchase that same vehicle again. Owner-satisfaction Ratings are determined by the percentage of those who answered "definitely yes" to the question asked by the Consumer Reports Annual Auto Survey "Considering all factors (price, performance, reliability, comfort, enjoyment, etc.), would you get this car if you had to do it all over again?". If we don’t have sufficient data, a similar model might be used to form the owner-satisfaction score.
