CG Says: The 2020 Audi A4 has refreshed styling and a new infotainment system. The A4 also gains standard equipment with power sunroof, heated front seats, and tri-zone automatic climate controls now on all cars. The A4 is a premium compact sedan that was redesigned for 2017. Front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive are available. The base engine is a turbo 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine that develops 188 horsepower on front-wheel drive models or 248 hp with quattro all-wheel drive. A 7-speed automated-manual is the sole transmission. The performance S4 is powered by a 349-horsepower turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission. Notable standard features include a forward collision mitigation system with automatic braking, leather upholstery, sunroof, heated mirrors, LED ambient interior lighting, rearview camera, Bluetooth connectivity, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality. Options include Audi’s “Virtual Cockpit” digital gauge cluster, Google Earth satellite navigation display, adaptive cruise control, adaptive suspension, a rear collision mitigation system, blind-spot monitoring, lane departure warning and intervention, rear cross-traffic alert, and traffic-sign recognition. A dazzling-yet-understated interior and a long list of cutting-edge technology features are chief among the A4’s highlights. Plus, the A4’s sticker prices and standard-equipment lists compare very favorably with its traditional BMW and Mercedes-Benz competitors. If you’re looking for a well-rounded premium compact sedan, the A4 should be on your list.
