The A4 is our highest-ranking luxury compact sports sedan, thanks in part to its driving experience. Power comes from a smooth and punchy 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder engine, mated to a slick seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. We got a commendable 27 mpg overall. Handling is nimble and precise, the ride is supple, and the A4 feels tight-as-a-drum solid, with a very quiet cabin. The fully digital instrument panel shows pertinent information in front of the driver in a clear, comprehensive way, and the center screen is compatible with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Interior fit and finish is excellent, and the front seats are comfortable, although the rear seat is tight. The A4 has good crash-test results and has standard forward-collision warning and low-speed automatic emergency braking.
