2010 Audi A4 Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

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...

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
  • Side-impact airbags
  • Front and rear side curtain airbags
  • Optional rear side-impact airbags
  • Electronic stability system with traction control

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
