Review of the 2005 Audi A4

  • The A4 is luxurious, sporty, winterproof and a few grand cheaper than BMW's 3 Series. As such, it's one of our favorite entry-luxury cars.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Classy, well-constructed interiors, sharp handling, precise steering, available all-wheel drive, generous maintenance program.

  • Cons

    Engines short on low-end torque, sport package makes for a choppy ride.

  • What's New for 2005

    A4 sedans and wagons get new bi-xenon headlamps along with a new satellite/navigation/AM and FM radio antenna. Satellite radio (XM or Sirius) is now optional on the A4 Cabriolet. OnStar is no longer an available option. A substantially refreshed A4 debuts as a midyear release, and boasts new engines, an upgraded chassis and revised styling.

Vehicle: 2005 Audi A4 1.8T Special Ed. Fwd 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)

One of the most beautiful cars around. The interior is first class. The Special edition adds more fun to the driving experience, though a little stiff on bumpy roads. The only con is performance. The engine could use a little more power. Overall, a car that turns heads and gets lots of ohhh!! inside and out; but don't challenge other cars for a quick race... you'll be left eating dust.

For anyone looking for affordable, fun, upper end car. The audi A4 is the car, I was shopping for german car with lots bells on it and the A4 was the car for me. I am a big Honda and I traded my Honda v6 for the A4, I felt that Audi is the higher end of a honda that will last you and run for ever and you pay for what you get. I could have gotten a bmw if I wanted to pay for all the standard options on that already came on the Audi. My next car will be the new A6.

Finally, the A4 has all it needs to be the only total competitor to the 3 Series. It will have a sedan, coupe, wagon, and convertible plus a performance version (S4) like the BMW M3. The C Class, CTS,...
