The 2015 Audi A4 is an entry-level luxury sport sedan equipped with a turbocharged 4-cylinder engine and a choice between front-wheel (FWD) or all-wheel drive (AWD). It competes against the Acura TLX, BMW 3 Series, Cadillac ATS, Infiniti Q50, Lexus IS, Mercedes-Benz C-Class, and Volvo S60.

Models and Features
Audi offers the A4 with Premium, Premium Plus, and Prestige trim packages. The Audi S4 is a performance-tuned model with a supercharged V-6 engine, while the Audi Allroad is an A4 wagon sitting on a raised suspension for greater off-roading capability. The S4 and Allroad are covered separately.

Upgrade to Premium Plus trim for a 3-spoke steering wheel, heated front seats, memory settings for the driver's preferences, auto-dimming interior and exterior rearview mirrors, compass, keyless passive entry with push-button engine starting, trunk cargo tie-down and grocery bag hooks, and a cargo net.

Prestige trim includes a more sophisticated infotainment system complete with navigation, Audi Connect services, HD Radio, Bluetooth music-streaming capability, premium speakers, satellite traffic data services, and an extra SD card slot. The A4 Prestige also contains a color driver information system, reversing camera, rear park-assist sensors, blind-spot warning system, and adaptive headlights.

Under the Hood
For the 2015 A4, Audi installs a turbocharged, 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine that makes 220 horsepower between 4,450 rpm and 6,000 rpm, and 258 lb.-ft. of torque between 1,500 rpm and 4,300 rpm. A continuously variable transmission (CVT) delivers power to the car's front wheels, but if the buyer selects the optional Quattro AWD system, Audi offers a choice between a 6-speed manual gearbox and an 8-speed automatic transmission.

Fuel Economy
When equipped with FWD and a CVT, the EPA rates the 2015 Audi A4 to return 24 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway. Choose Quattro and an automatic transmission and the car is expected to get 22 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway. The 6-speed manual gearbox that is offered exclusively with Quattro splits the difference at 22 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway.

Safety and Technology
Audi offers rear side-impact air bags as an option on any variety of the 2015 A4, bringing the car's total air bag count to eight.

A Technology package is optional for the A4 Premium Plus. It adds most of the technology upgrades that are included for the Prestige version, including a navigation system, reversing camera, Audi Connect services, blind-spot information system, rear park-assist sensors, and more. Audi Connect turns the A4 into a mobile Wi-Fi hotspot and supplies Google Earth imagery for the car's navigation system.

A Driver Assist package is optional for and exclusive to the A4 Prestige. It includes adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go capability, dynamic steering, and Audi Drive Select technology. Audi Drive Select allows the driver to tailor the A4's driving characteristics to Comfort, Auto, and Dynamic modes. Alternatively, using Individual mode, the driver can mix-and-match settings.

Audi Drive Select is also available for the A4 Premium Plus, separate from the other contents of the Driver Assist package.
