We wouldn’t strip your car-aficionado credentials if you failed to spot the new Audi A4 for what it is: a thoroughly redesigned car. Although the ninth-generation A4 looks eerily familiar to the last version, it actually rides on a new platform with reworked powertrain and suspension. In the sports sedan tug-of-war among Audi, BMW and Mercedes-Benz, the A4 now prevails over its peers.

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

"Great car to drive. Fun, responsive and fuel efficient. Best car I have ever owned."

Anonymous, IL (2017 Audi A4)

"I can't believe this is a four-door four cylinder sedan. It accelerates so much faster than my previous car which had a bigger engine and more horsepower. Driving this car is a dream! I tell my friends and family driving this car feels like floating on a marshmallow and I feel sorry for people who don't drive Audis. That said, you cannot compare this vehicle to its 2016 predecessor which (although nice) was nowhere near as fun, responsive and finished as this beauty."

Includes seats, climate control, noise, and ride

What Owners Say

"There is a loud grinding noise coming from the instrument panel that gets progressively louder the faster the car goes."

Anonymous, PA (2017 Audi A4)

"The seats are not comfortable. They feel hard. There is very little storage space. The owner's manual is hard to fit in glove compartment. Can't put a bottle on the door."

How it looks inside and out

What Owners Say

"This car is brand new and completely overhauled from 2016. The new body lines, lower mirrors and sexy lights really make it pop. The interior is beautiful and very well equipped. I love the little touches like being able to change the interior lighting to suit my mood. The virtual dashboard is gorgeous and makes it very easy to safely multi-task while driving."

AMELIA T., ON (2017 Audi A4)

"Both are fun cars drive. Acceleration is fantastic. 0 to 60 in less than 4 seconds!"

PALL R., GA (2017 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.
