2018 Audi A4 Features
2018 Audi A4 is a small luxury sedan available in three main trim levels: Premium, Premium Plus and Prestige. Sublimate A4 Ultra is more fuel efficient also available along with Premium and Premium Plus trim. Under the hood is a turbocharged 2.0 liter four-cylinder engine (252 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque). The Ultra A4 engine is less powerful (190 hp and 236 lb-ft) but gets better fuel savings.
The front-wheel drive is standard, with an all-wheel drive (called Quattro in Audi term) optional. Automatic seven-speed dual-clutch transmission comes with all A4. Six-speed manual transmission is also available but only on the A4-wheel-drive A4. Ultra is offered only with front wheel drive. Unless you really want maximum fuel savings, we advise to stick to a regular A4 engine instead of an Ultra. You will feel the difference in power.
Standard features for the A4 Premium include 17-inch wheels, automatic xenon headlamps, forward collision mitigation systems, customizable drive adjustments (Audi’s Drive Select), sunroof, auto ignition mirror, leather seats, heated front seats, Tri zone climate control and fold backrest. Standard technology features include a rear-view camera, Audi MMI infotainment system with 7-inch center screen, Apple CarPlay integration and Android Auto, and a 10-speaker audio system with two USB ports.
The optional Convenience package adds auto-dimming and power-side, ignition and keyless lock mirrors, driver memory settings and satellite radio.
Our favorite is the next step, Premium Plus. You get the Comfort package feature as standard, along with 18-inch alloy wheels, LED headlamps, sporty exterior styling (S line) expand, front and rear parking sensors, and 19-speaker Q & Olufsen speaker system sound. Audi and rear blind handling prevention systems, Side Assist and Pre Sense Rear, are also standard.

Finally, there is a top-of-the-line A4 prestige. It comes with all of the above as standard plus head-up display, additional interior ambient lighting, top-down parking camera system, warning and line departure intervention, and enhanced interior trim.
2018 Audi A4 Interior
The cabin is stylish, functional and well built putting pressure on technology. The optional Virtual Cockpit instrument cluster gets most attention, re-creates analogue measuring devices while displaying navigation and entertainment information.
Ease of use
A simple Audi’s elegant design can be translated to an easy-to-use cockpit with logically placed controls. The virtual cluster gauge takes some getting used to, but becomes second nature in no time.
In and out
The doors are big, and the roof is not fierce, reducing the possibility of taking your head. Likewise, front side bolsters are not prominent enough to block access.
Long gone are the days when the A4 was a compact car. Sit inside and you might think you are in a medium sedan, with enough leg room for four large adults on board. And even a 6-footer will find enough headroom in the back.
Visibility is good around thanks to the narrow roof pillar, coupled with standard rearview camera and crash warning system. In addition to cool looks, the Virtual Cockpit instrument and head-up display also help keep the driver’s eye on the road.
2018 Audi A4 Drive
The powerful and powerful Audi A4 Prestige four-cylinder turbocharged produces excellent acceleration. Strong brakes and sharp handling also help make the A4 fun to drive. But A4’s steering limits driver engagement.
This is a car that impresses fast and smooth. A4 engine is quieter than other four-cylinder turbo engine. The zero-to-60-mph time of 5.3 seconds is full speed faster than previous generation A4s and fits with the BMW 328i for the fastest base class engine.
The feeling of the pedal is quite fast and the length of the trip offers easy modulation in everything. In our panicked-stop trial, the A4 stopped off 60 mph with very impressive legs. The optional optional summer tire option with no bow has obviously something to do with it, but it is still a remarkable result.
Steering is the weak point of A4 dynamic. There is numbness to it regardless of the three settings available (Comfort, Auto and Dynamic), and does not involve drivers as well as the best competitors. It’s linear and well-weighted, but the feedback is lacking.
A4 Cadillac ATS, but no one denies its impressive charm, cornering and stable in emergency situations.
Can be moved
There are some initial delays of the automatic transmission once you step on the gas, and that might bother some drivers in traffic. The engine stop-start system is also visible and may delay further acceleration.
