A slick cockpit, a new MMI Touch interface with navigation, adaptive dampening, and an amazing trunk space of 13 cubic feet are just some attractive features in the 2017 Audi A4. Drivers looking for safety will be delighted to know the A4 received a 5/5 stars in crash tests and that the car has collision warning called Audi Pre Sense City, emergency braking, and blind spot warning. This model also uses the LATCH system for car seats.
The base engine is a 2.0-liter Turbo-four (2.0T). This engine gives the A4 252 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque. EPA mpg is 25 city and 33 highway.
The 2017 Audi A4 is available in various trims:
• 2.0T Premium – $37,300
• 2.0T Quattro Premium – $39,400
• 2.0T Premium Plus – $41,100
• 2.0T Quattro Premium Plus – $43,200
• 2.0T Prestige – $45,900
• 2.0T Quattro Prestige – $48,000
• Additional package add-ons include Komfort, Progressiv, Technik, ultra-Premium, and ultra-Premium Plus
What does all the terminology mean? The Quattro is all-wheel drive. Anything that is not a Quattro has front-wheel drive. “Ultra” boasts a better fuel economy (27 city, 37 highway), but the power is reduced (190 horsepower, 236 lb-feet of torque), so it is recommended to stick with the regular engine.
Standard in all 2017 Audi A4 models is the seven-speed, dual-clutch automatic transmission. The Quattro models receive a six-speed manual transmission on request.
2.0T Premium comes with the following:
• Automatic xenon headlights
• 17-inch wheels
• Adjustable driver settings
• Collision mitigation system
• Leather upholstery
• A tri-zone climate control for front and back seats
• Rearview camera
• MMI Infotainment system
• Apple and Android integration
• 2 USB ports
• 10-speaker sound system
The Premium Plus is the recommended model, because it increases the value by including things like heated front seats, sporty exterior styling, parking sensors, and an amazing 19-speaker Bang & Olufsen surround sound system.
The Prestige model comes with mobile Wi-Fi, voice controls, and virtual cockpit on top of everything else.
The driving experience is what one would expect from Audi—smooth, dynamic, and offering a pleasurable purr. Acceleration goes from 0 to 60 in 5.3 seconds, making one of the quickest base engines around. The brakes respond quickly too, going from 60 mph to 0 within 99 feet. However, steering leaves one in want. The 3 settings—auto, comfort, and dynamic—were reported to feel “numb” and “lacking.”
Completely redesigned from previous years, the 2017 Audi A4 has certainly surpassed expectations. The impeccable design and fabrication, the futuristic technology, the spacious interior, and the sports-car-like acceleration make this model a sure-fire winner. More power, more fuel economy, and more safety features—this 2017 Audi has it all.
Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
- Example: Base Audi A4 invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
- What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.
Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here.)
Note: All Audi A4 MSRP, invoice and dealer cost dollar figures above are approximate amounts. Prices are subject to change without notice.
A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
