    Audi's A4 just received some minor tweaks for 2019 but a more substantial update is on the way for the car's mid-cycle refresh, as evidenced by the recent sighting of prototypes. Now a new prototype has been spotted, and this one is for the sporty S4 in Avant wagon guise. While this updated S4 Avant isn't destined for sale in the United States, we should see similar updates on the S4 sedan we do get here. The headlights are new and no longer feature the teardrop element of the current S4 headlights, while the front grille is also wider and lower than on the current S4. The changes at the rear...

  • Audi A4 Ultrasport
    Audi A4 Ultrasport returns, limited to 40 cars

    It appears Audi of America has come up with a proper way to send off the last Audi A4 sedans equipped with a manual transmission—and the results should tickle A4 enthusiasts. Although we're saddened to learn the 2019 A4 and A5 will drop the manual-transmission option for the new model year...

  • 2019 Audi A4
    2019 Audi A4 and A5 lose manual transmission

    Just as BMW aims to put the sport back in sport sedan with its redesigned 3-Series, Audi's A4 is losing the manual transmission for the 2019 model year. Audi made the manual available as a no-cost option on A4s equipped with all-wheel drive for 2017. It pointed out at the time that it was the only...

  • 2019 Audi A4
    Sharper look for 2019 Audi A4

    It seems like the current A4 only arrived yesterday but Audi already has an updated version of its popular small sedan. That's because even though we only received it in the spring of 2016, the car has been on sale elsewhere since 2015. Yet to be announced for the United States but expected here in...

    It seems like the current A4 only arrived yesterday but Audi is already out testing an updated version of its popular small sedan. That's because even though we only received it in late 2016, the car has been on sale elsewhere since early 2015. The engineers haven't added much in the way of...

  • 2002 Audi A4 Cabriolet

    Audi's A4 Cabriolet has a bit of a cult following and now the nameplate may be on its way back to the market. The A4 Cabriolet was phased out in 2008 to make way for the A5 Cabriolet but could return to not only replace the A5 Cabriolet but also the A3 Cabriolet and TT Roadster, AutoBild suggests. It seems it's not just sedans that are losing out to SUVs. Sales of two-door cars, particularly convertibles, are also on the decline. For example, only about 15,000 A5 Cabriolets were sold worldwide in 2017, and the respective numbers for the A3 Cabriolet and TT Roadster are even lower...

    Audi Sport reveals RS 4 and RS 5 Carbon Edition cars

    Audi Sport unleashed the new RS 4 Avant and RS 5 earlier this year, but it has already returned with special editions for both nameplates. Appropriately called the Carbon Edition, both cars add a healthy dose of carbon fiber-reinforced polymer (CFRP) as well as a few other special touches. They...

    Audi RS 4 Avant makes return at 2017 Frankfurt auto show

    Hot on the heels of Monday’s debut of the new rear-wheel-drive R8 supercar, the Audi Sport division has since revealed a new generation of the RS 4. The vehicle made its debut on Tuesday at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show. Sadly, the RS 4 is still exclusively a wagon affair, the body style...

    2018 Audi S4/S5 video review: making our own music at Coachella

    We have a tough time nailing down what “performance” means anymore. Automakers work really hard telling us that every car has sporting potential—right down to a minivan. We’re easily not convinced. We know “sssspeed” when we see it, and Audi’s twins here...

    2018 Audi S4 first drive review: Whip, without lash

    The 2018 Audi S4 carves the desert better than a blistering sandstorm. Turn after turn, the S4 knifes ribbons of pavement like a scalpel in bread dough. The looks of Audi’s new sport sedan were hewn in the same way too. Audi’s newest S4—now firmly planted in the middle of the...

  • 2018 Audi S4
    2018 Audi S4 preview

    The Audi A4 is an appealing compact luxury sedan with the cachet of the Audi name and the inherent goodness of German engineering. So, what's the S4? Well, it's just that much better. The 2018 Audi S4 is also better than the car it replaces. Under the hood sits a longitudinally mounted, twin-scroll...

  • 2017 Audi A4 vs. 2017 Jaguar XE

    It's a question we've been asking ourselves since the 2017 Audi A4 and the 2017 Jaguar XE first rolled into our driveways: which one's better, and can either of them ascend to the 3-Series' old slot as the top compact sport sedan? We find no shortage of irony that the staid British luxury brand is the upstart in this affair. Perhaps if the Jaguar XE’s seats were made of tweed, we’d feel more comfortable about the new four-door sedan. Geographical generalities aside, we’re finding ourselves double-taking all the differences between the XE and the new Audi A4. For the record...

    Motor Authority Best Car To Buy Nominee: 2017 Audi A4

    If an automaker is going to offer a compact luxury sedan it had better be on top of its game. The segment is filled with fantastic cars like the BMW 3-Series and Mercedes-Benz C-Class, and upstarts like the Cadillac ATS and Infiniti Q50. That's some stiff competition, but Audi has been up to the...

    2017 Audi A4 gets manual transmission

    Audi’s been eliminating the manual transmission on many of its newer models but the latest A4 sedan is still available with three pedals and stick. Audi has made the manual available at no cost on its A4 equipped with all-wheel drive. The automaker is quick to point out that it’s the...

    2017 Audi A4 gets entry-level Ultra model with 31 mpg combined fuel economy

    Audi is finally bringing one of its Ultra models to the United States. The label represents the most fuel-efficient offering in the range and was first applied on a diesel-powered A3 in 2013. In the U.S., Audi’s first Ultra model will be a member of the 2017 A4 range and is estimated to...

  • 2017 Audi A4 Allroad
    2017 Audi A4 Allroad preview

    Audi fans lamenting the automaker’s decision not to bring over the svelte A4 Avant wagon can take solace in the knowledge the related A4 Allroad is coming here. The small, luxury softroader made its world debut at the 2016 Detroit Auto Show in January and will land in showrooms this fall. It...

    2017 Audi A4 scores top safety marks

    Audi's new A4 has earned top marks in the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety's latest round of crash tests, a huge improvement over its predecessor. IIHS says the 2017 A4 received a "good" rating, its highest, in all of its crash tests—including the demanding small-overlap frontal crash...
