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.

Outstanding Sport Sedan
I've owned a previous (2013) s4, a 2016 A6, Infiniti red sport, Bmw 340xi (2017) and currently own a 2020 BMW M340i. Only the BMW M340i beats the new S4. A bit quicker and better throttle response ... Read full review
