2019 Audi A4 Overview

The Audi A4 carries itself with a refined air. The premium 4-door sedan is elegant yet understated, and for 2019 Audi has made only a few subtle changes.

The most noticeable 2019 upgrades for the A4 are the now-standard front and rear S line bumpers. The front bumper has new pentagon-shaped housing for the side air inlets, while the rear bumper has been reshaped to better accommodate the new rear exhaust system. The powertrain carries over from 2018, although Audi is measuring its engine output in a slightly different way. The rated horsepower is now derived from a single, global kilowatt metric. For the A4 with the 2.0 TFSI ultra engine, a turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission (DCT) that sends power to the front wheels and produces 236 pound-feet of torque, that new horsepower measurement is 188, a slight dip compared to 2018. For the 2.0 TFSI, a turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder mated to a 6-speed manual transmission which sends power to all four wheels and produces 273 lb-ft of torque, the new horsepower rating is 248. The FWD powertrain gets 27 mpg city, 34 highway, 30 combined and takes Premium gas. With the more powerful engine and Audi’s quattro all-wheel-drive (AWD) system, the A4 gets 23, 34, 27 on Premium fuel.

Trims include Premium, Premium Plus, Prestige. Notable standard exterior features include automatic Xenon headlights with LED daytime-running lights, power-adjustable heated side mirrors with integrated LED turn signals, rear fog lights, and heated windshield wiper nozzles. Inside, standard features on the base trim include heated power front seats, leather upholstery, a 7-inch MMI infotainment display, a 10-speaker sound system, Bluetooth, keyless engine start/stop, a reversing camera, cruise control, a sunroof, three-zone automatic climate control, and ambient LED lighting. Moving up to the Premium Plus trim adds a 19-speaker, 755-watt Bang & Olufsen sound system, HD Radio Technology, SDXC card slots with 64GB capacity, and driver’s seat memory. The Prestige trim tops all of that with adaptive cruise control, MMI Navigation plus with MMI touch with an 8.3-inch screen, a top-view camera system, virtual cockpit dash display, traffic sign recognition, and more. The A4 Sport package gets the addition of aluminum ellipse inlays for the cabin. And the Premium Plus trim now comes with wireless charging and a signal booster.

Standard safety features for all A4 trims include antilock brakes with electronic brake-pressure distribution, electronic stability control with traction control, and a tire-pressure monitor. There’s also driver-assist technology that secures the vehicle during unusual or emergency maneuvers and detects vehicles and pedestrians at speeds up to 52 mph. The National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) rated the A4 5 stars overall, while the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) gave it a Top Safety Pick rating.

The A4 continues to face competition from other luxury German brands like BMW and Mercedes-Benz. But with a cabin that radiates quality craftsmanship and an exterior that features sleek lines, the A4 remains a top choice for premium sedan shoppers.
