Expert Rating

4.6 (Excellent)
23 City / 32 Highway

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

2015 Audi A4 OVERVIEW

One of the more affordable compact luxury sedans on the market, the Audi A4 is known for its elegant character and upscale practicality. It remains a favorite choice among buyers who are stepping into a luxury car for the first time.

What's New for 2015

The A4 gains some standard features, and there's a new Sport Plus package for the upper trim levels.

Choosing Your Audi A4

Every Audi A4 is powered by a turbocharged 2-liter four-cylinder that produces 220 horsepower. Front-drive models receive a continuously variable transmission (CVT), and cars equipped with the optional all-wheel drive system get either a six-speed manual transmission or an eight-speed automatic. Refreshingly, the three drivetrain possibilities are available on all trim levels:


Comes with leather upholstery, power front seats, a sunroof, tri-zone climate control, Bluetooth phone and a 10-speaker sound system with satellite radio. The contents of last year's S Line package -- 18-inch wheels, xenon headlamps, sportier exterior trim -- are now standard. Heated seats and navigation are available in standalone options.

Premium Plus

Gets the all the Premium equipment and options as standard, plus keyless ignition, driver memory functions, heated auto-dimming exterior mirrors and an auto-dimming rearview mirror with compass. The available Technology package adds enhanced web-based navigation, WiFi access, a rearview camera, parking sensors and Bluetooth audio. The Sport package comes with front sport seats, a sport-tuned suspension and adjustable driving settings. The Sport Plus adds a flat-bottom steering wheels, gloss black exterior accents and summers performance tires on 19-inch titanium-finish wheels. You can also add a 14-speaker premium Bang & Olufsen sound system.


Carries the Technology package and upgraded audio system as standard, plus adaptive headlamps. The Sport and Sport Plus packages continue as options. Two packages are exclusive to the Prestige: Driver Assist, which adds adaptive cruise control and dynamic-assist steering; and an expanded leather interior with upgraded appointments throughout.

CarsDirect Tip

We like that the A4's trim levels are independent of the drivetrain choices. That means you can get a fully loaded car without having to spring for all-wheel drive or even and automatic transmission. Conversely, you can get all-wheel drive without piling on anything extra.
