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.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Owner Satisfaction with:

Driving Experience

Includes acceleration and handling

What Owners Say

"The car is so responsive and smooth handling."

Anonymous, MA (2015 Audi A4)

"Great parking, acceleration, braking."

Anonymous, IL (2015 Audi A4)

"It's not a sports car, but it accelerates very well getting onto the highway. Very stable at highway speeds. It was somewhat difficult to get used to the very large difference in steering effort between high speed and low speeds. The steering becomes surprisingly quick when slowing down for a sharp turn."

Anonymous, TX (2015 Audi A4)

"Wonderful handling and solid feel for the road"

Anonymous, CT (2015 Audi A4)

"Excellent road control. Very responsive acceleration. Tight steering, very maneuverable."

Anonymous, TX (2015 Audi A4)

"On initial acceleration there is a slight delay before the turbo engages. This is very annoying and is a little hard to get used to. Car handles very well and steering is very smooth and true. Vary comfortable ride overall."

Anonymous, ON (2015 Audi A4)

"The acceleration is very good. I use te sport mode often. The down fall is that there is a lag in the response, and the back tires squelle most times. Especially from a complete stop."

Katie M., FL (2015 Audi A4)

"Control, holds the road beautifully on accelerated curves"

Anonymous, CT (2015 Audi A4)

Comfort

Includes seats, climate control, noise, and ride

What Owners Say

"Very smooth and quiet ride compared to other cars we have driven. Shifts are also very smooth."

Anonymous, TX (2015 Audi A4)

"Excellent rude, handling in snow."

Anonymous, MA (2015 Audi A4)

"Very quiet ride. Can hardly tell that the car is going on the highway as it is very quiet and smooth. Seats are a bit hard and can get a bit tiresome on long drives. Seats are bit on the small side so a person with a large frame may have a bit of difficulty getting comfortable in the seats as I do."

Anonymous, ON (2015 Audi A4)

"Controls are complicated and distracting to use. Why do I stop in a safe place to change the fan speed? Because the buttons are small and the knobs are not intuitive. Keep it simple like the Tacoma. ride is good, noise is low, but I need to look down the road and not at the console to adjust the climate controls."

Anonymous, TX (2015 Audi A4)

"There very completely built"

Matthew Z., MI (2015 Audi A4)
