2022 Audi A4 review: Our expert's take
What Is the 2022 Audi A4?
The five-seat Audi A4 is the German luxury brand’s rival to compact luxury cars like the BMW 3 Series, Mercedes-Benz C-Class and Genesis G70. Offered with standard all-wheel drive, the A4 comes with a choice of two turbocharged four-cylinder engines paired with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and is available as a sedan or Allroad wagon. The performance-oriented S4 sedan gets a 349-hp, turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 and an eight-speed automatic.
What’s New on the 2022 Audi A4?
A4s with the 261-hp four-cylinder engine now come with a sport suspension that lowers the car. There’s also a new Black Optic Plus Package that includes black bumper accents, a matte-black grille with black badging, black mirror caps, black side sill blades and red-painted brake calipers.

Should I Buy the 2022 Audi A4?
The A4 remains a smart choice among a wide range of worthy competitors. While not as overly sporty or flashy as some rivals, the A4 offers a great blend of performance, refinement and fuel efficiency. Rear-seat accommodations are fine for a pair of adults, but squeezing three people back there could be tough. The S4 is a thrill to drive and has cooly understated looks, but a starting price of more than $50,000 could deter some shoppers.
