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.

Every Audi A4 is powered by a turbocharged 2-liter four-cylinder that produces 220 horsepower.

Refreshingly, the three drivetrain possibilities are available on all trim levels:
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.
