Overview

What's New

The Audi A4 receives a few notable changes for the 2022 model year, including a more streamlined package and trim structure alongside a 13-horsepower bump in power for the base A4 sedan and A4 Allroad wagon. Additionally, the A4 45 TFSI model with the more powerful engine gets a new Black Optic package and receives a standard sport suspension, a feature that was an option on the 2021 model.

Choosing Your Audi A4

The Audi A4 is offered in three different configurations with three different trim levels. The A4, A4 Allroad wagon, and S4 are all available with the Premium, Premium Plus, and Prestige trims.

A4 sedan models from $40,945 for a Premium A4 40 TFSI (including destination fees) to $51,945 for a Prestige A4 45 TFSI. A4 Allroad wagons range between $47,140 for Premium Models to $56,445 for the Prestige model, while the S4 range from $52,945 for the Premium up to $61,245 for the Prestige.

Engine Choices

There are three engine choices available in the A4 line. The base A4 receives two engine choices, the 201 hp 40 TFSI and the 261 hp 45 TFSI. A4 Allroad models are limited to the 261 hp turbo four-cylinder, while the S4 receives the more powerful turbo V6. The 45 TFSI is available at a $2,100 premium for Prestige A4 models, a $1,600 premium for Premium Plus A4 models, and $700 premium for Prestige A4 models.

A4 and A4 Allroad models receive a seven-speed automatic dual-clutch transmission, while the S4 is equipped with an eight-speed automatic transmission. All-wheel drive is standard on all models.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

All A4 models offer seating for five, but passengers sitting in the middle may find the hump from the driveshaft less than comfortable. The legroom is a reasonable 35.7 inches, which most adults should find suitable.

Trunk-equipped A4 models have a fairly small 12 cubic feet of space, but rear seats do fold down for longer items. If you’re expecting to haul larger things, the A4 Allroad wagon offers 24.2 cubic feet of cargo room behind the rear seats, and about 60 cubic feet with the rear seat folded.

Safety Features

The A4 line offers five-star crash ratings from NHTSA and a Top Safety Pick+ award from the IIHS, making it one of the safest cars on the road to have a collision in.

Additionally, all A4 models come well equipped with standard active safety features, including high-quality LED headlights, automatic emergency braking, and lane-departure warnings. Optionally, adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, and parking assist are available.

Connectivity

Audi has some of the best connectivity technology on the market these days. All A4s receive a 10.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, which is fairly easy to operate compared to rivals

Once you move up the trim levels and select option packages, A4 models can be equipped with a well-designed 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, a head-up display, navigation, and premium audio.

2022 Audi A4 Premium - MSRP From $40,945

Premium A4 sedans come standard with real leather upholstery and wood trim, a sunroof, heated power front seats, three-zone automatic climate control, and 17-inch wheels, while Allroad models receive the same kit with 18-inch wheels. S4 models receive Leather/Dinamica S Sport Seats with diamond stitching and LED headlights with unique daytime running lights.

Major packages include the $500 S-line interior package for the Sedans, which includes brushed aluminum trim, sport seats, and stainless steel pedals, as well as the $1,200 Black Optic Package which adds unique exterior and interior trim options for the Sedans, and $800 ventilated front seats.

Premium Allroad models have only one option: full-paint finish for $1,000 replaces the rugged-looking black plastic trim with body-colored painted panels.

Premium S4 models have a much wider array of packages, including the $700 Warm Weather Package which includes ventilated front seats, the $1,400 Black Optic Package, and the $2,500 S Sport Package with red calipers, adaptive suspension, and a rear sport differential. Also available are a dynamic steering system for $1,150 and Nappa Leather upholstery for $1,000.

2022 Audi A4 Premium Plus - MSRP From $45,645

The Premium Plus trim adds the desirable Audi Virtual Cockpit 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, alongside adaptive cruise control, a 360-degree camera, 18-inch wheels, and “Signature” daylight running lights to Sedans and Allroad models. The S4 version is similarly equipped but receives the Audi Phone Box, which boosts cell service and provides wireless charging.

A4 Sedan and Allroad models have access to more or less the same options, including the $1,300 Warm Weather Package ($1,425 for the Allroad) and the $1,500 Navigation Package. Premium Plus models also offer the $950 Bang and Olufsen sound system. Premium Plus S4 models have much of the same options as the Premium, with the addition of the Navigation Package and the Bang and Olufsen sound system.

2022 Audi A4 Prestige - MSRP From $61,245

The Prestige trim for the sedans offers animated taillights and Matrix-design LED Headlights, a head-up display, Navigation, and the Bang and Olufsen sound system. Allroad models get ventilated front seats, and the S4 receives Park Assist.

Strangely, the options list for the top-of-the-line Prestige model reflects that of the base Premium model for all three variants of the A4. No new options are available at this trim for any model.

CarsDirect Tip

Many Flavors. The standard A4 is a fastball straight down the middle. It’s extremely competent as a luxury sedan, but its style is very conservative without much flair. An upgraded trim called “45” provides an extra 60 horsepower, adaptive suspension, and optional sport seats.

The S4 is a step above the 45 with a turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 with 349 horsepower, while higher trim models get cool performance parts like a torque-vectoring rear differential. However, despite the S4’s 4.4 second 0-60 time, but compared to rivals, it may seem understated and a bit emotionless.

The oddball of the lineup is the A4 Allroad with its rough and ready plastic body cladding and a raised suspension. While not exactly something we’d start exploring Moab with, it does raise confidence in its ability to navigate grass lots at the local polo field.

Standard All-Wheel Drive. Audi’s biggest schtick since the 1980s has been its inclusion of their Quattro all-wheel-drive system in their passenger cars. The 2022 A4 line is no exception with standard AWD throughout the entire lineup.

Unlike many other AWD systems on the market that are based on a front-wheel-drive model with power sent to the rear wheels as needed, the system in the A4 is rear-wheel based. About 40% of the power is sent to the front wheels in normal conditions, making it more suited for sporty driving.

Well-Equipped. The A4 is very well equipped for its segment with its standard real leather upholstery and wood trim, Android Auto and wireless Apple CarPlay compatibility, and even a sunroof. Most rivals come standard with synthetic leather upholstery and no sunroof, while arch-rival BMW charges a yearly subscription plan to keep Apple CarPlay active in the vehicle.

Jumping up to the A4 Premium Plus model includes more tech like adaptive cruise control, a digital instrument cluster, and a 360-degree camera system, while the top Prestige version comes with LED headlights, navigation, a heads-up display, and premium Bang & Olufsen audio.

Stellar Safety. According to the IIHS and NHTSA, the A4 line is one of the safest cars on the road. All models received a five-star rating and designation as a Top Safety Pick+ when equipped with the LED headlight option. Additionally, the A4 offers excellent visibility from its cockpit, something that is becoming rarer and rarer each model year.

In terms of active safety, the A4 line includes automatic emergency braking and lane departure warnings as standard. Higher trim levels include adaptive cruise control and lane-keep assist.

Final thoughts. The Audi A4 line may not be the flashiest of the compact luxury sedan segment, but it comes well-equipped with loads of luxury and tech features and a wide array of styles. From the basic A4 to the performance-oriented S4 and the rugged Allroad, the A4 is a solid choice for anyone; competent at everything but not exactly a standout at anything.

Those looking for a luxury compact sedan with more pizzazz should look to the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, which has a more styled interior and exterior that looks and feels more special. The BMW 3-Series line offers a sportier experience, although the price can climb quickly as you travel up the trim levels and select options. However, this segment is quite deep and worth exploring, with further options like the Cadillac CT4, Lexus IS, and Genesis G70.

If you’re looking for a wagon like the Allroad, your choices are a bit more limited. There isn’t really another luxury wagon at this price point, although there are some like the Mercedes E-Class at the mid-sized level. The biggest competitor to the Allroad may be the Subaru Outback, which even at top trim levels lacks the refinement of Audi’s interior and drive quality.
