About the 2018 Audi A4

Following a total refresh and redesign last year, the Audi A4 features a striking exterior design with potent performance to match. Remaining a top choice among midsize luxury sedans, the 2018 A4 sets the benchmark for advanced technology and unparalleled refinement. Starting at $36,000 MSRP, the A4 features impressive standard amenities including Audi smartphone interface including Apple CarPlay™ and Google™ Android Auto™, heated power leather seating surfaces, along with LED daytime running lights and LED taillights.

Power comes in the form of two 2.0 liter four cylinder turbocharged engines. A4 Ultra FWD models produce 190 horsepower while quattro all-wheel drive equipped models feature an impressive 252 horsepower version of the 2.0 engine. The available sport suspension or available sport adaptive damping suspension provide responsive feedback to maximize the handling of the 2018 Audi A4.

What the Critics Say

"The 2018 Audi A4 delivers just about everything we expect from a small luxury sedan. There's quick acceleration, a comfortable ride, and the latest connectivity and navigation technologies. But the fact that it does it without overwhelming you makes it, at least for the time being, the car to get in the segment." -- Edmunds

"Last year's Audi A4 sedan got a bit bolder on the outside and a lot sportier under the skin. The 2018 Audi A4 sedan continues this trend, increasing the availability of quattro all-wheel drive and packing in more hardware and luxury features." - Kelley Blue Book

What's New for 2018

For 2018, the Audi A4 sees a few changes for the new model year. Front-wheel drive is now only found on the base Ultra trim. Some previously optional safety features are now standard on Premium Plus and Prestige models. Also new for 2018, a new Black Optics appearance package is now available and gives the A4 a more aggressive look.
