The 2018 Audi A4 2.0T comes in Premium, Premium Plus and Prestige trim levels. The economy-minded Ultra setup is available in all trims, and that's where our starting prices are based. It costs an extra $4,500 for the more powerful engine, but that also brings all-wheel drive into the deal.The
Premium ($36,975) starts out with 17-in alloy wheels, push-button start, a sunroof, leather seating surfaces, tri-zone automatic climate control, heated/8-way power-adjustable front seats (plus 4-way lumbar adjustment in the driver's seat), a tilt-telescopic steering wheel, power windows, ambient LED cabin lighting, drive-mode selection, automatic xenon headlights, LED daytime running lights and taillights, rain-sensing wipers, a self-dimming rearview mirror, a rearview camera, forward-collision mitigation with pedestrian detection, a 7-in display, Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone integration, two USB ports, two SD card slots and a 10-speaker sound system.This trim level is eligible for an optional Convenience package that bundles together memory settings for the driver's seat, a trip computer, an alarm, keyless entry/ignition, satellite radio and heated/self-dimming/power-folding side mirrors. This is pretty much an essential extra.The
Premium Plus ($40,175) has all the above as standard, plus LED headlights, a hands-free trunk-lid release, a Bang & Olufsen 19-speaker/755-watt "3D" sound system, parking sensors at both ends, Audi Side Assist (blind spot monitoring), Pre Sense Rear (rear-end collision mitigation) and 18-in alloy wheels.At this point in the pecking order, the Virtual Cockpit -- a configurable 12.3-in display taking the place of conventional dials -- may be ordered, along with navigation, an 8.3-in upgraded center screen, voice control/handwriting recognition and Wi-Fi.The
Prestige ($46,475) enjoys everything mentioned so far, plus a 360-degree camera system, HD Radio, a head-up display, active lane assist, adaptive cruise control with automatic stop and go, traffic-sign recognition, automatic high beams, leatherette-covered center console/door armrests and dual-pane acoustic glass for the front side windows.Other options include heated rear seats, a heated steering wheel, ventilated front seats, rear side airbags, summer tires, an adaptive air suspension and all-wheel drive.Trunk space is 13 cu ft. The A4's compatriots offer the same amount, which is good for about three sets of golf clubs.
