2014 Audi A4 2.0T quattro manual Review

Simply put: the Audi A4 gets better and better all the time….

With the 2014 edition, you get a similar exterior look than previous models with a few tweaks when it comes to the front facia and LED lights.
Our ibis white German-made (Neckarsulm) sports sedan came with an all-black interior with aluminum Trigon inlays. Take a base car at $34,700 and tack on $10,000 worth of options (A4 Premiun Plus Model, Audi MMI Navigation, Black Optic and Sport package) and you get our sweet-looking tester. Under the hood is the well-known Volkswagen Group 2.0 liter turbocharged I4 engine with FSI direct-injection. We had fun managing the 220 horsepower and abundant 285 pound-feet of torque with the six-speed manual transmission that comes with dual mass flywheel. Of course, you get what you possibly want most in an Audi: the quattro permanent all-wheel-drive with 40:60 torque split keeps the A4 grounded in all conditions. Steering is precise and direct with the electromechanical speed-sensitive power steering. All the basic safety and security systems are there and expected comfort and convenience creatures abound: power glass sunroof with sunshade, rain and light sensor, 8-way power front seats with 4-way lumbar support, automatic climate control, Audi concert radio with premium sound, Bluetooth and driver information system with trip computer.

The Audi A4 2.0T quattro sedan is a perfect all-around sedan for sports-oriented professionals and can grow with the family.
