2016 Audi A4: 5 Reasons to Buy – Video

If you’re looking for information on a newer Audi A4, we’ve published an updated review: 2019 Audi A4 Review

It’s a familiar face in the sport-sedan world, but that won’t stop the 2016 Audi A4. This car keeps raising the bar. We can confidently say it’s one of the most well-rounded cars out there, offering year-round driving performance, an upscale cabin — you name it. Check out these five reasons why the A4 keeps rising to the top year after year.

Timeless Styling

The A4 doesn’t need flashy styling to draw you in. Instead, Audi’s given the sedan an understated appearance. In 10 years, the A4 will look just as good as it does today, unlike many of its competitors. The 2016 model has been updated with LEDs and beautiful alloys, but overall, the style remains subtle. From every angle, it presents upscale attitude and exudes confidence.

Do-It-All Engine

Audi gave the A4 just one powertrain, but you can bet it delivers. It’s a 2.0T 4-cylinder that kicks out 220 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. Audi and Volkswagen drivers will know this engine well, and that’s a good thing. It has torque right from the get-go, which reassures you in almost any driving situation, whether passing, merging or everyday driving. The best part? It gets 31 miles per gallon on the highway.

Tenacious Handling

The A4 comes standard with front-wheel drive, but Audi’s famed quattro all-wheel drive (AWD) is available (and recommended). When the road gets slick, you’ll want the peace of mind that comes with AWD. Even on dry pavement, the quattro system uses all four wheels instead of two. The A4 has a very sporty feel on the road, and it hugs corners with the best of them. You’ll definitely put the quattro AWD to good use in those snowbelt states.

Sumptuous Cabin

If you’ve ever set foot in an Audi, you already know that the automaker’s cabin quality is second to none. The A4 follows suit, with upscale materials everywhere. We were really pleased with the Audi Multi Media Interface (MMI) infotainment system. We recommend the MMI Plus setup with navigation, which has a very accessible control knob located on the console right between the seats. Even the buttons and levers feel premium. This Audi sport sedan presents some top-notch features for way less money than you’d expect.

Surprising Value

In this class, it’s hard to say that a car is value-packed, but the A4 really blew us away. Its long list of standard features includes triple-zone climate control, a sunroof, a 10-speaker sound system and Bluetooth. You can even get real leather upholstery, unlike many competitors that only offer synthetic leather. Audi even gives you options such as Google Maps integration and mobile Wi-Fi.

Autotrader Says

The A4 is always striving to be the best, and the results are in. Check out the 2016 Audi A4, and see why this sport sedan might just be a perfect fit for you. Find an Audi A4 for sale
