Audi always packs a lot of features into its cars, and the 1999 Audi A4 1.8T Sedan is no exception. Armed with a 1.8-liter, 150-hp turbo I4 engine and standard 5-speed manual transmission, the 1999 1.8T Sedan gives you traction control, 4-wheel ABS, a locking differential, cruise control, dual front and front side airbags, leather trim on the wheel, power windows, locks, and mirrors, and a security system all in the base price.
Extras are more about comfort luxuries, such as heated seats, a trip computer, a sunroof, and a ski bag to protect the car from getting wet. A 5-speed Tiptronic auto tran is also optional, as is a sports package that adds sports-tuned suspension. Owners of the 1999 A4 1.9T Sedan mention a lot of maintenance problems, particularly with the electrics, and question the car's reliability. But they love its handling and smooth ride, and all the luxury features.

If you get the 1999 Audi A4 1.8T quattro sedan, you get all the same features as the front-wheel drive 1.8T sedan, with the added benefit of Audi's innovative and superior all-wheel drive quattro technology. This system so far seems unbeatable in tackling a multitude of weather and road elements and gives drivers a confident, road-gripping feel behind the wheel.
Other than the that, the A4 1.8T quattro is identical to its front-wheel drive counterpart. Same 1.8-liter, 150-hp turbo I4, and standard features that include air conditionining cruise control, traction control, ABS, power locks and windows, tilt steering wheel, rear defogger, anti-theft system, and remote entry. A sunroof, ski bag, heated seats, audio controls on the steering wheel, and special sports seats and suspension are all options. High points are the AWD system and the special heated seats option. Drivers like the solid and safe feel of the A4 1.8T quattro sedan and its interior style and comfort. But expensive mechanical and quality problems persist.

New this year is the 1999 Audi A4 1.8T Avant quattro, a wagon version of the popular sedan. The wagon was previously only offered with the 2.8 engine, but this year comes with the 1.8-liter, 150-hp turbo I4 and 5-speed manual transmission. It is similar to the other 1.8T A4s in terms of its standard feature set (ABS, traction, air conditioning, dual front and front side airbags, leather trimmed knob and wheel, power windows, locks, and mirrors, cruise control), but adds a center console. It also comes standard with a roof rack and a ski bag, which where options on the sedans.
A sports package adds supportive seats and a firmer suspension, while an all-weather package gives you heated seats. A sunroof, trip computer, and steering wheel audi controls are all options. The 1999 A4 1.8T Avant quattro rates well on its all-wheel drive capability, especially in the snow, and the extra storage space, perfect for long trips or outdoor adventures. Drivers feel it is smooth, easy to handle, and comfortable. They wish it had more power and less quality issues. Poor customer service and expensive parts make up the negative comments.

Few changes this year to the 1999 Audi A4 2.8 sedan, a luxury performance sedan featuring a 2.8-liter, 190-hp V6 with standard 5-speed manual transmission. A 5-speed auto tran is optional. The 1999 A4 2.8 sedan has many of the same features as the 1.8T, including many power features, fog lights, remote entry, cruise control, tilt and telescopic steering, and a center console. It adds a power driver's seat to the list. For safety, it also has traction control, dual front airbags, and ABS brakes.
A sports package gives you a stronger suspension, sports seats, ski bag, and a trip computer. Weather packages add the much-loved heated seats. The Audi A4 2.8 Sedan gets rated well for handling and performance and interior comfort and luxury, but there are some criticisms about electrical problems, worthless cupholders, and a cramped backseat, along with the always costly repairs.

Adding all-wheel drive to the 1999 Audi A4 2.8 quattro sedan gives the luxury sedan more versatility and confident handling in a variety of weather and road situations. Other than the expert quattro technology, the 1999 A4 2.8 quattro is identical to the front-wheel drive sedan. It has the same 190-hp, 2.8 V6 engine and standard 5-speed manual transmission. Security ssytem, remote and lighted entry, power driver's seat and power heated mirrors, fog lights, cruise control, automatic climate control, leather trim, traction, and ABS brakes are all standard. In the 2.8 quattro, a tachometer is added to the instrument panel.
Drivers love the all-wheel drive capability, especially in the snow. Other high points include the large trunk, the well appointed cabin, confident handling, and the heated seats option. Issues arise with the limited rear legroom and a general dissatisfaction with the frequency of repairs. Repairs are costly and the Audi customer service is notoriously uncaring. Other drivers want more horsepower as well.

All-wheel drive and the extra cargo capacity of a station wagon means the 1999 Audi A4 2.8 Avant quattro is great for either family trips or personal adventure outings. Fold-down rear seats offer even more storage space, and the 1999 A4 2.8 Avant quattro adds on a roof rack and ski bag as standard features, for even more flexibility.
Other than the quattro all-wheel drive and the extra standard features, the 1999 A4 2.8 Avant comes with the same 2.8, 190-hp V6 and 5-speed manual transmission (or optional Tiptronic) as the other 2.8 A4s. It doesn't skimp on amenities, either, with tons of power features, safety considerations (traction, ABS, dual front airbags), cruise control, intermittent wipers, remote entry, security system, air conditioning, and leather trim. Heated seats, a trip computer, and sunroof are welcome options. As with all the A4s, owners like the comfortable interior features, though the rear seat is somewhat cramped. They like the styling and performance, but wish for more horsepower and less repairs.
