For the last model year, the Audi A4 gains more standard and available content for Premium and Premium Plus trim levels. Measuring 185 inches long, the current Audi A4 is 4.5 longer than the previous model and also larger than many rivals inches. This means it has a relatively roomy interior for the class, especially in the rear seat area. Audi designers also trimmed the overhangs to give the car look sportier, while the engine engineers moved more towards the center of the car in order to support the development with a weight distribution and improved driving dynamics.
Stylistically, the car has a clear visual resemblance to the larger Audi A6 and Audi A8 sedans with similar indications as large Audi corporate grille, a roof line gently sloping and the LED lights up. The interior retains Audi’s reputation for designing outstanding cabin with a picture of simple, neat and stylish and good materials managers everywhere. The Audi A4 recently made available with the latest version of its interface MMI infotainment and Audi connect, which makes the car a mobile hotspot Wi-Fi and also includes access to Google Maps – with panoramic views, high resolution 3D satellite and aerial imagery.

This engine produces 220 horsepower from 4300-6000 rpm and 258 lb-ft of torque between 1,500 and 4,200 rpm. Interestingly, despite having only one engine, three transmissions to choose from. The first is a manual gearbox with six speeds, good for an excursion from zero to 60 in just 6.4 seconds while returning 22 city and 30 highway miles per gallon. This, of course, is coupled to the quattro drive system sports four wheel.
Opting for the convenience of a Tiptronic eight-speed transmission will reduce fuel economy at 21 city, 29 highway, and add two tenths at time zero to 60. This model also features quattro all-wheel drive. The final choice is the CVT Multitronic transmission, which returns the best highway fuel economy of 31 mpg (city rating is 21 mpg) and slower acceleration time of three 7 1 second. This is the only transmission used FrontTrak front-wheel drive. Those looking for more grunt than Audi A4 turbo four can offer should consider the Audi S4, which features a supercharged V6 with 333 horsepower.
