The Audi A4 is fitted with a 2.0 litre turbo-charged 4-cylinder engine and is front-wheel driven with Audi’s Quattro-All-Wheel-Drive system, and is available in a six-speed manual transmission as well as an eight-speed automatic.
Audi’s mid-size A4 is available as a luxury sedan, a wagon (the Allroad) and the much sportier S4. The current A4 has been on the market since 2009 but a 2016-revamp helps it compete even better with the likes of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, Cadillac ATS, BMW 3-Series and the Infiniti Q50.
The Audi A4 family of vehicles is more than just the A4 sedan; it also includes the hotter S4 edition; the Allroad wagon, which is spun off from the formerly available A4 Avant wagon; and the A5, S5, and RS 5 coupes and convertibles, which share some running gear. It also counts the Q5 compact crossover as a distant relative.
