The 2017 Audi A4 proves that the car manufacturer still dominates the market and offers rich technology in a luxury package. Starting at $37,300, the 4-door A4 is packed with a new interior, increased horsepower, and better technology and safety features. Here is a closer look at what the A4 offers.
Although the A4 has only received subtle changes from the previous model, it remains an attractive option. The 2017 version has a wider grill and slimmer headlights, which make the car appear lower. Few other differences are evident.
According to Motortrend, the A4’s interior takes a “big step forward.” This year’s model is larger and roomier with enhanced front seat comfort and passenger legroom. The dashboard has been refreshed and replaced with an open design that is similar to the Q7. The windshield is quite large and allows a driver to explore the landscape. The “Virtual Cockpit” has been added as well. This provides the driver with all of the vehicle’s information. The Driver Assistance Package provides adaptive cruise control, which slows the car around corners and when speed limits drop.
The 2017 Audi A4 comes with a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine, standard front-wheel drive, and a seven-speed automatic transmission. The 2.0T has a boosted horsepower that totals 252. The vehicle can go from 0 to 60 mph in under six seconds. To save money at the gas pumps, the 2017 A4 is estimated to achieve a fuel economy of 31 mpg on the highway and 24 mpg in the city.
Safety is a top priority in the 2017 Audi A4. Besides standard features, there is a frontal collision mitigation system that brakes automatically and a blind-spot monitoring system. Parking is a breeze with the surround-view camera as well.
The A4 is meant to attract drivers who are interested in a vehicle with sporty and luxury features. Thanks to the Audi Drive Select, a driver can choose the correct mode for steering and suspension that is best for the road conditions. Overall, the ride is quite comfortable, and acceleration is nice. Seat support is excellent, and exterior noise is never a problem.
The 2017 Audi A4 is an exquisite vehicle that is filled with innovation and luxury. Its interior quality stands tall against the competition, and the performance pleases most drivers. Larry Nutson, Senior Editor and Bureau Chief, Chicago Bureau at “The Auto Channel,” touted the positives of the car. He explained that it is a contender for the “North American Car of the Year” and “Midwest Automotive Media Association” awards. Anyone interested in a small high-end sedan should consider this car.
