The 2012 Audi A4 is ideal for those shoppers after a smart-looking, German-engineered sedan with a touch of luxury and none of the negative connotations that some of its rivals attract. Better still, the A4 also comes as a stylish wagon, or “Avant” in Audi-speak, and in our opinion is the better buy due to its extra storage.
The 2012 Audi A4’s only major downside is that a facelifted model is being introduced for 2013. The good news is that the changes on the 2013 model are mostly cosmetic so if you’re in need of a car today then the current 2012 model is still worth a look.
Unlike its rear-wheel drive competition, which includes the likes of the BMW 3-Series (all-new for 2012), Infiniti G, Lexus IS, and Mercedes-Benz C Class (facelifted for 2012), the A4 comes standard with front-wheel drive and optional all-wheel drive.
We’d recommend opting for all-wheel drive only if you prefer sportier dynamics or you live in an area where roads can be quite...
