2017 Audi A4 review

2017Audia4aThe new Audi A4 takes everything we’ve always loved about the Audi A4 — conservative good looks, cool interior, responsive chassis, and all-wheel drive — and amps it up with high-tech new features, more power, and even better handling. Yet while the new A4 aims to draw in new customers, the new A4 will only convince current A4 fans that upgrading is the right call.

From a styling standpoint, Audi sticks to its tradition of changing everything while only slightly altering the visual appearance. So the changes to the new A4 are subtle, enhancing an already handsome shape, and ensuring it will wear as well as its predecessors over time. Outside, a character line runs all the way around the car incorporating the seam of the new semi-clamshell hood to make up the upper part of the line at the front of the car. We like the new LED signature lights in the headlights as well, which are either super-bright Xenon HIDs or sun-like LEDs. Inside it’s typical Audi, and that’s all good. The seats are comfortable, the ride is quiet, and the materials are all first rate. We wish there was a soft spot for the driver’s right knee, and the back seat won’t win any prizes for roomiest-in-class, but otherwise the A4 exceeds our expectations.

The new 2017 Audi A4 rides and drives better than ever, looks terrific, and offers cutting edge high-tech gadgets that aren’t available in competing brands. We’ll have to pit it against those competitors — the BMW 3 Series, Mercedes-Benz C-Class, Cadillac ATS, Lexus IS and others — to tell just how much it moves the bar. But we are sure it’s a definite contender for best-in-class honors in a very tough class.
