Overview

A compact, luxury 4-door sport sedan, the Audi A4 has been through several incarnations since its 1994 debut. The 2011 model is available in sedan and Avant (wagon) configurations. Its all-wheel-drive (AWD) version features a new 8-speed automatic transmission, and a few upgrades have been made to the option packages.

The Premium (base) trim of the 2011 Audi A4 includes 17-inch wheels, leather upholstery, sunroof, cruise control, automatic climate control, and a 10-speaker CD audio system. The Premium Plus trim adds upgraded lighting, Bluetooth connectivity, automated tri-zone climate control, and heated seats. The Prestige option package, available only with Premium Plus trim, adds 18-inch wheels, keyless entry and ignition, navigation, and a 14-speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system. The Sport package includes firmer suspension and upgraded performance tires. Many other options are available.

The 2011 Audi A4's turbocharged 2.0-liter engine produces 211 horsepower and 258 lb.-ft. of torque. The Premium and Premium Plus trims employ front-wheel drive as the standard, as well as a continuously variable transmission, which is functionally similar to an automatic transmission. All-wheel drive is available on all models, and standard on the Avant, and comes with a 6-speed manual or the optional 8-speed automatic transmission. Exact fuel efficiencies vary, according to the EPA, but almost all A4 models deliver around 21 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway.

Standard safety features on the 2011 Audi A4 include anti-lock brakes, traction control, stability control, front side air bags and side curtain air bags. Optional safety features include rear side air bags (not available on the base trim) and, with the Prestige trim, a blind-spot warning system. The adaptive cruise control system includes an emergency braking system that deploys if impact is imminent. All A4 variants received 3 (out of 5) stars for driver protection in front-impact tests conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), and 4 stars for front-passenger protection. The A4 received the highest-possible "Good" ratings across the board from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) in their crash tests.

The 2011 Audi A4 had a starting MSRP of $32,300.
