2013 Audi A4 2.0T Premium quattro 4dr Sedan AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 8A)

Review

Traded an '11 Acura TSX for this 2013 A4 Premium Plus and so glad I did!! Could not get comfortable in the Acura, and too little rear seat room for the family. This Audi is "right sized" for a family of 4. Plenty of useable trunk space. Ride is composed but comfortable, 18 inch wheels help the car stick around corners, powerful brakes to haul the car down from speed which it gains easily from the 2.0 turbo running through 8 gears. Excellent fit and finish and an attractive sedan from any angle in my opinion. Electric power steering gives up some feel, but is far superior to that found in the Acura. I compared with BMW 3, Mercedes C class, Infiniti, and new Lexus ES. A4 was superior!

Best Features

Interior quality, fit and finish. Also love the clarity of the gauges, interior and exterior lighting, especially the LED light tubes in the headlights and taillights which are new for 2013. Gas mileage has been a plus (getting 29-33 highway running at 75-80 mph and 25-28 around town). Very easy to find a comfortable driving position in this car. MMI interface is actually fairly intuitive to use, blue tooth works well, Nav screen has excellent graphics, and can use the car as a WiFi Hot Spot--excellent for the kids electronics when traveling.

Worst Features

HVAC controls are a bit more complicated than they need to be but are learned farily easily with a bit of practice; would prefer a true tire pressure monitoring system that displays tire pressures individually (Audi's is an indirect system relying on hub sensors to detect differences in speed and hence potential pressure differences). A real dipstick in the engine to check the oil would be nice--the only way to check oil level is through a gauge in the MMI nav display. That's about it and those are small complaints.
