2017 Audi A4 Review Overall Rating: The A4 embodies all the things we like about Audi: solid overall performance, modern day style, state-of-the-art technologies, and sumptuous comfort. This newest version, all new for 2017, is a competitive entry-luxury sedan that properly toes the line among sportiness and luxury. The exterior is understated-some could possibly say too much so-but it slips with the wind with nary a whisper transmitted for the interior. A potent turbocharged engine invigorates the driving knowledge, when a broad array of tech possibilities adds cutting-edge sophistication.
What’s New for 2017 2017 Audi A4
The A4 is redesigned for 2017 and hence rides on the new chassis, attributes an updated turbocharged inline-four engine, and integrates all sorts of new attributes. A fuel-economy-focused model on the two.0-liter turbocharged inline four, often known as the Ultra, joins the lineup.
Trims and Options We’d Pick
Audi presents a six-speed guide transmission on all A4 two.0T models outfitted with Quattro all-wheel drive; that is what we’d choose for its increased driver engagement (#savethemanuals). Conventional capabilities include things like:
• A 180-watt 10-speaker audio program which has a single CD player
• seven.0-inch center infotainment show with voice control
• Apple CarPlay and Android Car
• Bluetooth streaming audio and voice command
• Sliding/tilting sunroof
• Remote keyless entry
We’d also pony up $3800 for the mid-level Premium Plus trim, which adds an extended checklist of welcome niceties which includes heated front seats, push-button start off, along with a 755-watt 19-speaker Bang & Olufsen audio system with SiriusXM satellite radio. Choosing the Premium Plus trim allows you to select the Engineering package ($3250), which includes the 12.3-inch Virtual Cockpit display along with an 8.3-inch center infotainment show, navigation, and rear cross-traffic assist.
On the Premium trim, the better-looking 18-inch wheels yield an $800 surcharge over the common 17-inch wheel option, so we appreciate that they come typical on the Premium Plus and Prestige. We didn’t test the 19-inch wheels that are available with a Sport package, but going to that size could possibly compromise the car’s smooth ride quality.
Our well-equipped A4 stickers at a steep $47,400 but includes an impressive amount of tech. If you’re averse to shifting for yourself, the seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission is actually a no-cost option. Unfortunately, Audi does charge $575 for any paint color other than white or black.
