The 2013 Audi A4 proves that entry-level vehicles can be luxurious. The A4 may be Audi’s most affordable car, but it’s got the touches to top far more expensive rivals. The sedan has an upscale exterior design that goes hand-in-hand with a handsome interior. An efficient, yet powerful engine and available all-wheel drive round out the sedan.
The 2013 Audi A4 is a compact luxury sedan that seats five. It’s available in three trims: Premium, Premium Plus and Prestige. A turbocharged four-cylinder pairs with one of three transmissions. Front-wheel drive is standard, and all-wheel drive is available. (The high-performance S4 is reviewed separately.)
For 2013, the A4 gets new features, inside and out. The hood and headlights are restyled, and the center console has been simplified. The A4 gets electric power steering, instead of a hydraulic system, and the wagon has been ditched for the Allroad — a chunkier, off-roading-oriented wagon.
Despite being four years old, the A4 looks fresh with its latest revisions, which have given the sedan a relaxed profile befitting the luxurious segment. Slim headlights highlight the A4’s sinuous front end, but the brand’s single-frame grille is the centerpiece. Around the side, the A4 has clean lines, revealing a modest width. At the rear, the sedan features a bulbous trunk lid and a curvy rear bumper. Two tidy exhaust outlets finish off the understated design.
Standard features include daytime running lights, automatic headlights, front and rear foglights, heated mirrors, heated windshield washer nozzles and a sunroof. The A4 can be fitted with “xenon plus” headlights with LED daytime running lights, LED taillights and aluminum trim pieces.
The A4 lives up to Audi’s standards of building amazing interiors. The design of the cabin, the materials scattered throughout and the way it’s all put together is posh. A thick steering wheel reinforces the sedan’s sportiness. It may be a compact sedan, but the A4 offers passengers in the front seat an excellent amount of space. Taller passengers may find the rear seats a little cramped, however. The 12.4-cubic-foot trunk is average for the segment.
The sedan comes with automatic climate control, a tilt-and-telescopic steering column, power windows and eight-way power front seats. Heated front seats are optional. Higher trims come with tri-zone automatic climate control, memory settings for the driver’s seat and a 60/40-split folding rear setback.
The A4 lineup is powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four that produces 211 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. A4s equipped with front-wheel drive come with a CVT. Opting for all-wheel drive brings either a six-speed manual or an eight-speed automatic gearbox. Fuel economy tops out at 24/31 mpg city/highway.
As a luxury sedan, the A4 puts a comfortable ride higher up on its priority list than all-out sportiness. The suspension is in the middle of the segment in terms of its stiffness, as the sedan’s capable of tackling corners, but also is more than happy to soak up miles on the highway. The new electric power steering system provides a better road feel for drivers.
Audi has fitted the A4 with a 10-speaker audio system and satellite radio. Bluetooth, iPod integration and a HomeLink garage door opener are available. Higher trims come with navigation with voice controls, a 14-speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system, HD Radio and a rearview camera.
