First introduced in the international market in 1994, the fourth generation Audi A4 continues to excite both enthusiasts as well as sober owners who prefer to be chauffeured around. Introduced in the Indian market in mid 2008, the A4 boasts of one of the best in class rear legroom, is quite comfortable and yet provides a rewarding drive experience to its owners, especially with the potent 3.2 FSI petrol engine. On the outside, the A4 looks big, modern and very classy especially with those day time running LED lamps. The huge characteristic Audi grille, the oval rings and sharp headlamps, all contribute towards making this one hell of a looker.
In India, the Audi A4 is offered in five different engine options – two diesel and three petrol ones. For oil burner lovers, you get to choose from either 2.0-litre or 3.0-litre turbo-diesel engines. For those who prefer the smoothness of a petrol engine, you can pick up either an 1.8-litre, a 2.0-litre or a top of the line 3.2-litre engine. Other plus points include high quality and fit-finish of the cabin, a very comfortable suspension and a light steering wheel. You also get a driver focussed LCD screen in the central console and Audi’s famed MMI interface. The A4 is assembled locally at the Aurangabad plant. The smaller 1.8, 2.0 engines come with 16 inch alloy wheels whereas the larger 3.0 and 3.2 engines come with 17 inch alloy wheels.
1.8 TFSI: The entry level Audi A4 comes with a 1.8-litre petrol engine that develops a peak power output of 160 horses along with 250Nm of torque. This power is enough to propel the A4 to speeds of upto 218km/h while giving it a 8.6 second timing for the 0-100km/h run. The Audi A4 1.8 TFSI delivers an overall fuel economy of 12.48 as per ARAI. This model’s USP is its low entry level cost
2.0 TDI: Roughly two lakh rupees more than the A4’s 1.8 TFSI model is the line-up’s entry level diesel variant. The engine puts out 145 PS of power along with a very healthy 320Nm of torque. Its performance is quite impressive with a top speed of 210km/h and a 0-100km/h acceleration sprint in just 9.4 seconds. It is very efficient too, delivering an overall fuel economy of 16.09kmpl as per ARAI standards.
2.0 TFSI: For the same cost as the 2.0-litre TDI version, Audi also offers the A4 with a 2.0-litre petrol engine with direct injection and turbo-charger. This engine puts out 182 PS of power with 320Nm of torque. Performance is very good with a top speed of 226km/h and a 0-100km/h run in just 8.2 seconds. The engine is also good on fuel consumption and returns 12.76kmpl as per ARAI standards.
3.0 TDI Quattro: The other diesel engine option with the A4 is the mighty 3.0-litre motor. This V6 engine with common rail technology is powerful (245 PS) and torquey as well (500Nm) and with Audi’s famous Quattro system, gives a very pleasurable driving experience to its owners. Its top speed is electronically limited to 250km/h and the 0-100km/h acceleration stands at just 6.2 seconds. The engine is efficient, averaging 13.96kmpl as per ARAI standards.
3.2 FSI Quattro: The top of the line Audi A4 comes with the fun to drive 3.2 FSI engine. This 3.2-litre engine puts out 270PS of power along with 330Nm of torque. Performance is hair-raising : an electronically limited top speed of 250km/h with a 0-100km/h run in just 6.4 seconds. The Quattro (Audi’s all-wheel drive system) further improves the car’s dynamics and handling abilities. Its ARAI certified fuel economy stands at 10.02 kmpl.
Expert note: One of the best options at this price point. Comfortable yet exciting, the A4 comes with powerful yet frugal engines.

Pros gr8 looks, gr8 features, gr8 performance
Cons Average fuel economy
Audi A4 is a much better car than BMW 3s. It not only has more features ( auto-hold brake, auto-handbrake, front parking sensors, quattro - all-wheel-drive, etc. ) , powerful engine ( 3.2L, 265 BHP, 0-100km/h in 6.1 sec.) as compared to BMW ( 1.8L, around 170 BHP, o-100km/h in 8sec.)....also has daytime running LEDs... truly awesome car-AUDI A4...

Pros Awesome features & Super sharp styling & Sound System...
Cons Poor mileage but totally worth it!
There's nothing I look forward to more than to get behind the wheel of this awesome piece of machinery. Looks are young and sharp! With the daytime LEDs stealing the attention no matter the venue... Drive Select is superb - get the smooth comfort of Merc & the tight sports handling of a Beamer all at the flick of a switch. By far the best feature for city driving & traffic is the Break Assist - so no need to keep your foot on the breaks any more in traffic or at a red light. The B&O Sound System is 'killer'!!! Only 3 things to watch out for - 1st poor mileage, but worth the compromise for effortless power @ 260 BHP!!! 2nd - it's a very low car so be aware of road conditions and speed breakers & 3rd, be careful for the blind spot! Nothing comes so close to perfection!!!

Pros great sharp looks, fuel economy, space in comparison to rivals, snob value
Cons diesel motor lacks the sheer enthusiasm as compared to the BMW 320d
Audi has stepped up its game big time. Their sharp styling has been duly noted ever since the launch of the q7 and r8 models. the day-time running LED lights are a great example of their design progress. Also the MMI system is a great interface tool which is easy to use and allows driver a host of options on vehicle settings. Due to the elongated wheelbase the room inside the car is much more superior in comparison to the cramped interiors of the merc and bmw. A4 gives the driver a big car feel. Frankly i feel it would give even the E-Class a run for its money.

Pros Great Looks,Great Interiors,
Cons ,None that i could think of..
One of the best machines that I have driven. Was planning to buy BMW but now i think i made a great decision going with an AUDI. Specially the sports mode turns the machine into a beast. Just love driving my car. The after sales services are also too good and they assist you at every step. Feels as if everything is made with precision. I find no flaws in it. I also really enjoy the audio system. Its mind blowing. In the end i would say i am a PROUD owner of an Audi.

Pros Good Performance,
The quattro is such a rocking car. I have so much fun driving my A4 on the highway. I drove from Bangalore to Hyderabad and touch 240kmph. What a beast of a machine. I had a Skoda superb and then I upgraded to this car but now i am in love with Audi performance. The service is good but pricey but that's normal for luxury brand i am sure. Other than that excellent car, great interiors and luxury.
