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.

Did you get what you wanted relative to the price you paid?

What Owners Say

"Quality build, 100% reliable to date; very quiet and comfortable interior; stable and responsive performance."

Anonymous, ON (2014 Audi A4)

"Audi is charging option fees for several features some of which will be std soon by law and that many companies do NOT charge extra for such as backup camera, blind spot monitoring, etc. Audi used to be an excellent value vs BMW and Mercedes, now it's not at all."

STEVE O., AZ (2014 Audi A4)

"Not easy to interface with other devices. Many features standard on lower priced vehicles are extras on the Audi. High base price not justified by base options"

Anonymous, IA (2014 Audi A4)

MICHAEL P., OH (2014 Audi A4)

"Nice and sleek"

JEROME O., IL (2014 Audi A4)

"The car is attractive, but the indicator lights on the outside are strange in that the head light dims so only the indicator lights up,really not necessary and confusing. the interior seating area is too tight with too little room between the seats and console and the seats and the doors. I am just getting started....."
