Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), also known as "sticker" price, is a recommended selling price that automakers give a new car that is above the invoice price paid by the dealer. It is a price that does not include any options that can be added to a particular car style. When shown as a range, the prices are starting MSRPs, without options, for multiple styles for that model.
This price range reflects the Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value for all trim levels, but not necessarily all available options.
The Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value represents the amount an auto dealer might ask for a specific vehicle; the actual sale price will vary. A vehicle's popularity, condition, warranty, color and local market conditions are factors involved in determining a final price. The retail value is not a trade-in or private party value.
The Suggested Retail value assumes that the vehicle has been fully reconditioned and has a clean title history. The Suggested Retail value also allows for advertising, sales commissions, insurance and other costs of doing business as a dealer. Most vehicles offered at this price have passed an inspection, and some may carry a warranty. Vehicle mileage is assumed to be normal or below normal.

Vehicle Overview The A4 was redesigned for the 2009 model year, returning in sedan and wagon body styles with new styling and a fresh interior design. The A4 faces competition from the BMW 3 Series, Cadillac CTS, Infiniti G37 and Mercedes-Benz C-Class.
New for 2010 The 3.2-liter V-6 engine is gone, so all models use a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder.
Exterior The A4's styling bears a family resemblance to the larger A6. The sedan has a small spoiler integrated into the trunklid, and two circular exhaust outlets poke out from below the rear bumper.
Standard 17-inch alloy wheels
Available 18- or 19-inch wheels
Available swiveling headlights
Available xenon headlights
Available LED running lights and taillights
Standard glass sunroof
Interior Like some other Audi models, the A4 has adopted the German automaker's Multi Media Interface. MMI is a knob-based control system that shares similarities with BMW's iDrive and Mercedes-Benz's Comand system. It can control things like the navigation system, audio system and vehicle settings. In the A4 and other Audis, a knob and buttons on the center console are used to navigate menus and make selections that appear on a dashboard screen.
Standard automatic air conditioning
Standard leather upholstery
Available upgraded audio system
Available keyless entry and start
Under the Hood With the V-6 scrapped, all models have a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder. The base sedan comes with front-wheel drive and Audi's Multitronic continuously variable automatic transmission. Other sedans have Quattro all-wheel drive and a choice of a six-speed manual or Tiptronic automatic transmission.
Audi's Quattro all-wheel-drive system in this application has a torque split of 40/60, front to rear. This rear-biased design gives the A4 dynamics that are similar to a rear-wheel-drive car's in addition to enhanced traction on dry and slippery surfaces.
211-hp turbocharged four-cylinder engine
Available Quattro all-wheel-drive system
Six-speed manual and Tiptronic automatic transmissions available
Multitronic continuously variable automatic transmission standard
Safety The A4 has six standard airbags. Available features include Audi Side Assist, which informs the driver when another vehicle is next to the A4, and a backup camera. Safety features include:
Four-wheel antilock disc brakes with brake assist
Front and rear side curtain airbags
Optional rear side-impact airbags
Electronic stability system with traction control
