2002 Audi A4 Overview
Overall User Score
Based on 43 reviews
A whole new Audi A4 introduces itself in 2002. Almost indistinguishable on the outside from the Audi A6, the 2002 A4 is longer, with more interior room, more rounded edges, and longer roofline. A new chrome-edged grille and flush handles and trim maintains the upscale classiness that you find in all Audi models.
Still available as either a sedan or a wagon, the 1.8, 4-cylinder, turbocharged 170-hp engine is the same. The 2.8 engine has been replaced by a stronger 3.0-liter, 220-hp V6 with 221 lb-foot of torque. Both the 1.8 and 3.0 are available as either a front-wheel drive or AWD quattro. New standard features are added in 2002, including dual climate control, an electronic stability program, anti-skid system, and six-CD changer. This is in addition to the already standard ABS, cruise control, power front passenger's seats, and leather trim. Five-speed manual is standard, with a 6-speed manual available in the quattro. The interior of the 2002 A4 has been redesigned to give more legroom in the back, and it still boasts the largest trunk in its compact class.
Also new in the 2002 Audi A4 is the optional CVT (continuously variable transmission) automatic transmission, which gets better fuel economy and better acceleration performance. It has been around for a while, but never matched with a large V6 engine. With an electric clutch, it should rev immediately to the optimal RPM and move seamlessly through the gears, although it takes some getting used to. Owners either adore it or find it awkward. The CVT is not available in 2002 quattro models.
Owners love the new 3.0 for the extra power that doesn't sacrifice a smooth, quiet ride. The 2002 Audi A4 also has plenty of strength to tackle mountains, and the quattro is always sure-footed in rough weather. The CVT gets mixed reviews, legroom still suffers in the back, and there is some mention of excessive wind noise. But the A4 is a popular choice for its style, practicality, raod-hugging handling, and excellent driveability.
