The 2008 Audi A4 is an entry-level luxury car available as a four-door sedan, two-door convertible (Cabriolet), and four-door wagon (Avant). The convertible seats four, while the wagon and sedan can seat five people. The Audi A4 is a worthwhile choice for drivers seeking a relatively affordable luxury car with a premium cabin and refined handling.
What Makes It Unique?
The A4’s cabin design is more upmarket than its rivals’. Also unlike many of its competitors, it comes in three body styles and is available with all-wheel drive (AWD).
Lexus ES: A leader in the segment, offering a plush ride and deluxe interior.
BMW 3 Series: Sportier than the A4, it’s also offered in a wide range of body styles.
Cadillac CTS: More spacious backseat than the A4 and also available with AWD.

2008 Audi A4 vs. Older A4s
The A4 got a substantial refresh midyear in 2005. If you’d like to save money by purchasing an A4 older than a 2008 model, consider 2005-2007 cars. These Audis will have features and design comparable to those of the 2008 A4.
Original starting price, including MSRP and destination charge:
2.0T Special Edition: $30,525
2.0T Special Edition: $33,800
The A4 2.0T sedan has enough amenities to satisfy most buyers in this segment. Its list of standard features includes dual-zone automatic climate control, a 10-speaker sound system, and a power-adjustable driver’s seat.
200-horsepower turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine with a 6-speed manual, 6-speed automatic or continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) and front-wheel drive (FWD) or all-wheel drive (AWD)
255-horsepower 3.1-liter V6 with a 6-speed manual, 6-speed automatic, or CVT and FWD or AWD
Compared with the class? Rivals such as the Mercedes-Benz C-Class have a more powerful selection of engines than the A4.
"The A4 is the perfect car. It's just the right size, handles like a dream, looks like a star and runs like a champ. Excellent engine, quattro all wheel drive and an extremely responsive 2.0 Engine with excellent mileage. I love the car."
Comfortable, secure heated seats, impressive sound system and first rate ergonomics.
Timeless lines, still looks like a recent model.
Finest 4 cylinder I have driven. Smooth on the highway, wonderful acceleration and very good economy.
4 door convenience, reasonable back seat room especially for kids. The Audi pioneered safety cage construction so the passenger compartment is totally surrounded with crumple zones, side rails, motor mounts that will drop the engine below the compartment in a front crash and much more. I always feel safe in this car.
Repairs are in line with any car I've owned (driving for 50+ years) and I would rather own a used Audi than a new car in the same price range.
