There haven’t been a lot of changes made to the Audi A4 sedan since last year. The only significant addition is the optional Driver Assist Package that includes a rear backing camera and blind spot sensors. The previously-available Cabriolet trim is no longer available. Competition targeting the A4 includes the Lexus IS 250 and the Dodge Charger. Pricing as suggested for retailers ranges from $31,450 up to $35,350 for the new A4. And once again, it has earned 5 out of 5 stars for frontal crash test safety from the NHTSA. Further, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that the A4 sedan will consistently deliver 23/30 mpg city/rural. So with its 17.2-gallon fuel tank, it’s possible that you could travel well over 500 miles with a single fill up.
