The Audi A4 is one of the best luxury sports sedans on the market. It stands apart from many rivals in the luxury small car segment, starting with its top-notch cabin. The A4 has standard leather seats, which you won’t find in entry-level competitors from BMW or Mercedes-Benz. Its interior design is both refined and modern.
The Audi A4 has wide appeal. Performance enthusiasts looking to spice up their commute should enjoy the A4’s corner-carving abilities. If safety, class, and comfort are your top priorities in a daily driver, the A4 is also a good fit. It offers the latest in entertainment and safety technology, along with solid crash test scores and a quiet, upscale interior. The A4’s starting price of $36,000 is typical for the class, but you get a lengthier list of standard features than the rest, making it an attractive value.
For as good as the A4 is, there are some long-standing class rivals worthy of your consideration. Both the Cadillac ATS and BMW 5 Series cost less than the A4, and they perform just as well or better. The Mercedes-Benz C-Class costs a little more than the Audi, but it boasts a luxurious interior.
The 2019 Audi Msrp has a lot going for it, including a hybrid model, but you’d be wise to cross-shop its rivals as well. Additional new features for the 2019 Audi Msrp include a heated steering wheel, and optional heated and power operated front seats on lower-trim models with cloth upholstery. Front-wheel drive is standard and all-wheel drive is optional. In addition to the gas-only model, the 2019 Audi Msrp is also available as a hybrid with all-wheel drive as standard.
- Many trims to choose from
- Comfortable and spacious interior
- An 8.4-inch infotainment screen on most trims

- All-wheel drive is only available with the V-6
- Subpar interior fit and finish
- The V-6 engine could use more power
The 2019 Audi Msrp, on the other hand, is a better package, as we noted in a 2017 First Test, thanks to its smooth powertrain and well-calibrated brakes that smoothly transition between regenerative and mechanical braking. However, since it isn’t a plug-in hybrid, the 2019 Audi Msrp doesn’t have much EV mode range and can only travel around 0.5 miles on electricity.A rearview camera with rear parking sensors is now standard on all models.
The car is the only 2019 Audi Msrp trim level that can be had with a cool two-tone exterior color scheme. The ride itself was smooth, and road imperfections were barely felt.”
