1996 Audi A4 Overview

Not merely a replacement for the old Audi 80 and 90, the 1996 Audi A4 represents a redesign of its classic family sedan. It is a little shorter and wider, with a sturdier suspension and body. A more angled roof line and lower hood increase visibility and headroom. Inside, as always, Audi offers a lot of standard features for no extra cost. This is basically a family sedan if you're looking to ride in style and comfort.

The Audi A4 is available as a front-wheel drive or AWD quattro sedan, both with a 2.8-liter, 172-hp V6 engine paired with a 5-speed manual transmission. A 5-speed automatic comes optional. This four-dour family sedan is high on comfort and performance, if not necessarily on speed and acceleration. A stronger suspension and precise sensitive steering, make the Audi A4 easy to drive. Interior standard features such as air conditioning, dual climate control, tilt steering, cruise control, and power windows and locks make you feel like you're in a more expensive car. Leather upholstery and heated seat options add to the luxury feel.

Features that 1996 A4 owners love are the confident quattro handling, excellent brakes, and smooth ride. Owners agree they feel safe when behind the wheel of an Audi A4, an important feature for a family car. Low marks go to the cramped back seat, useless cupholders, wind noise, and awkward manual shifting. Drivers also wish for more horsepower and less costly repairs.
