2018 Audi A4 2.0 TFSI ultra Premium Summer of Audi 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 7AM)
Nice but not exceptional. Solid quiet drivetrain although steering lacks some power & road feel for this class. Premium fuel for mediocre performance (base engine) is disappointing. Nice interior coachwork, as with most Audis, except the leather is a bit downscale to the touch. Very comfortable front seats. Rear seats cramped except for kids or small adults. Trunk is small as well. Not a bad car, but shop around before deciding.

Easily the best machine I have owned or driven. The A4 is light on its feet and will simply outrun my former Subbie WRX and does not rob you of your dental fillings doing it. Fit and finish is excellent. I like the styling. Not so much flourish and swoops as now appears the vogue with Lexus. I also have owned Lexus IS 250. Not even close to Audi anymore. Don't know what Lexus is thinking these days.

With one exception, a 1966 Oldsmobile Cutlass, I've driven cars with manual transmissions since 1962. starting with a four on the floor Corvair Monza. I've had a Volvo, Hondas, Acuras and for many recent years, a successions of SAABs until they disappeared from the market. Seeking the best replacement, I found the 2012 A4 the closest to my beloved SAABs. With manual transmission available in all lines, not just the bottom feeder. the A4 turned out to be a great alternative. Now I have a new 2018 A4 Premium Plus in the gorgeous Matador Red color, light beige seating, with the only option being the wood inlay trim. It is a car that exudes class inside and out. It is by far the best handling and performing car I have ever owned. And the standard Bang & Olufsen sound system is glorious. From a value perspective, Audi beats BMW and Mercedes because the standard equipment on the Premium Plus model would add substantially to the cost of those cars.

The ride is supple yet not fatiguing. You feel the road but it does not affect comfort. You hear almost no road noise and can have a conversation at normal voice inside. Acceleration is brisk and satisfying. Though using premium 91 octane fuel, the payoff is great mileage if you allow the automatic stop start feature and coast to stops. Interior seating comfort is excellent and the driver's seat can be dialed in perfectly. Controls are easy to use, the display large enough to read, and the connectivity for iPhones and Android phones makes it easy to enjoy multiple information sources.
