Our Take

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

What Is the 2019 Audi A4?

The Audi A4 line includes the compact A4 sedan, which comes with front- or all-wheel drive, the AWD-only S4 performance sedan and the A4 Allroad wagon. The Allroad has higher ground clearance for a quasi-SUV stance. All versions seat five.

Front-drive A4 sedans use a 188-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, while AWD sedans and the Allroad have a 248-hp version. The S4 comes with a 349-hp, turbo 3.0-liter V-6. The A4 has a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, and the S4 gets an eight-speed automatic. Competitors to both include the BMW 3 Series, Genesis G70, Lexus IS and Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

What’s New on the 2019 Audi A4?

Reshuffled equipment availability includes wireless smartphone charging on the middle trim levels for the A4 sedan and Allroad wagon, plus navigation on the Allroad. The A4 sedans have new trapezoidal tailpipes, while sportier-looking S Line bumpers — previously optional — are now standard on AWD A4 sedans. The S4 adds a less expensive base trim level that includes a sport suspension, 18-inch wheels with summer tires and sport seats with power-adjustable side bolsters and a massage function.

What Features in the 2019 Audi A4 Are Most Important?

Audi makes all-wheel drive available or standard on all models, and the A4 offers the money-saving option of front-wheel drive. The base Premium trim includes features such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, leather seats, a power moonroof, heated front seats and automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection.

Should I Buy the 2019 Audi A4?

The A4 faces stiff competition from the BMW 3 Series, Genesis G70, Mercedes-Benz C-Class and others, so it would be wise to check out some alternatives before choosing this one. One alternative that the A4 does have clear advantages over is the Audi A3, a smaller car that’s priced too close to the A4.

I only have 700 miles on the car so far. I have owned 2 A4’s and loved them. I wanted more performance so I bought this S4 and I am very happy. The massage seats are wonderful. The drive select makes ... Read full review

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.
