Overview

What's New in the 2018 Audi A4?

After the debut of a new generation last year, not a great deal. But the basic model receives heated front seats as standard, the other trims also receive more standard equipment, and a Black Optic cosmetic package has been introduced. This includes some black/red bodywork, gloss-black 18-inch alloy wheels, red-painted brake calipers, black materials with red stitching in the cabin, and a flat-bottom steering wheel.  See the 2018 Audi A4 models for sale near you What We LikePrecise styling, fresh technology, adult-friendly space in the back, ride quality, cabin

Which A4 is the Best?

If possible, start by looking at the Premium Plus trim with the gutsier engine, all-wheel drive and the Virtual Cockpit. This combination hits a sweet spot in the price/equipment equation. If fuel consumption is an absolute priority, consider an Ultra version -- but you'll enjoy the others more. Find an Audi A4 for sale

How Much Does a 2018 Audi A4 Cost?

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.

Competition

2018 Audi A4 vs the competition

2018 BMW 3 Series -- The archetypal premium sport sedan and the class benchmark. Comes with rear-wheel drive as standard and a well-balanced chassis. Due for replacement in 2019. 2018 Cadillac ATS -- Overshadowed by its established German rivals yet still a top-tier machine. 2018 Jaguar XE -- Glorious ride quality, arguably handsome styling. But let down by an unremarkable cabin. 2018 Lexus IS -- Superb construction, calm ride, so-so interior, so-so handling abilities and arguably odd styling. 2018 Mercedes-Benz C-Class -- A best-seller for Mercedes-Benz, with plenty of luxury, equipment and performance available. The entry-level models receive a 9-speed automatic transmission for 2018, while the AMG C 43 is especially tempting. Used Audi A6 -- Not as tech-rich as a new A4, but comes with refined manners, a gorgeous and spacious interior and an exterior design that's standing the test of time.
