2007 Audi A4 KBB Expert Review
With so much to love about Audi's A4, it's hard to find a reason not to own one. From a driving enthusiast's point of view, the A4's quattro all-wheel drive and energetic turbocharged four-cylinder engine make it the ideal car, while young status seekers crave it for its upscale pedigree and reasonably affordable price. Audi even nails the little things many of its competitors overlook, such as providing the front passenger's seat with the same creature comforts as afforded the driver's seat and backlighting every switch and control regardless of importance. If it weren't for the A4's somewhat cramped rear quarters, we'd almost be tempted to call it the perfect sedan.
You'll Like This Car If...
If you like the idea of paying thousands less for a European sports sedan that is as frugal with fuel as it is quick off the line, you'll be hard-pressed to find a better choice than the A4. Optional quattro all-wheel drive is a bonus for Snow Belt residents.
You May Not Like This Car If...
If you think a bona fide premium sports sedan has rear-wheel drive and a normally aspirated, non-turbo engine - like the BMW 335i, Infiniti G35 and Lexus IS 350 -- you may find the Audi A4 a little impure for your tastes. Those with larger frames might also find the driving position confining.
What's New for 2007
For 2007, the 2.0T models lose a few features such as memory for the driver's seat and mirrors and heated rear seats. The 3.2 receives a standard moon roof and all A4's have new audio systems that don't have cassette decks but are capable of reading MP3-encoded CDs.
We drove the six-speed automatic and six-speed manual versions of the A4, each with the four-cylinder turbo engine and quattro all-wheel drive. While the automatic model was a joy on the highway - delivering a quiet, comfortable ride - inspiring stability and plenty of power to pass, the transmission magnified the engine's turbo lag in the stop-and-go of city driving.
The manual car, on the other hand, was equally impressive on the highway while also providing more of the kick we expect from a sports sedan. When sunny skies turn to rainy weather the all-weather traction advantages of the renowned quattro all-wheel-drive system are much appreciated and, even in dry weather, we could feel its calming influence while negotiating curving on-ramps and the like.
Even when we expect a vehicle to have four one-touch up/down windows, we're still delighted with their ease and convenience. They make life a little easier.
With clean designs, high-quality materials and top-notch construction, the A4's interior is a nice place to explore.
The A4's rear seat can be tight on legroom for some, and the front armrest can interfere with the parking brake lever. Beyond these, we find the A4's comfortable, stylish and well-crafted cabin nearly without fault. The textured aluminum is one of the finest examples of interior metal trim we've ever seen, and every surface and seam is pleasing to both the eye and the touch. If you're looking for a nice place to spend a commute, you won't have to look beyond the A4.
From the side, it wouldn't be hard to mistake the new A4 for the last-generation car (model year 2002 to 2005). And if your vision isn't what it used to be, you might be excused for confusing the two from the rear. But only from a mile away, on a moonless night in the middle of the Black Forest could you mistake the two models from the front. At first, we thought the Audi family's new trapezoidal big-mouth grille looked even less graceful on the A4 than when we first saw it on the more substantial A6 and A8. But, like its big brothers, the new A4 seems to embrace its new identity a little more warmly every time we see it.
Notable Standard Equipment
The base A4 powertrain includes a four-cylinder turbo engine, six-speed manual transmission and front-wheel drive. In addition, the well-equipped entry A4 features an AM/FM stereo with in-dash six-disc CD changer, one-touch up/down windows, keyless entry, dual-zone automatic climate control, cloth seats, leather-wrapped wheel/shifter/handbrake, power driver's seat, four-way adjustable/multifunction steering wheel, cruise control, fog lights and 16-inch cast alloy wheels. Standard safety equipment includes a sophisticated anti-lock braking system (ABS), electronic stability control, active front head restraints and front, front-side and two-row head-curtain airbags.
Notable Optional Equipment
In addition to an impressive list of standard features, the A4 also features a long list of options, including a choice between leather and premium leather seating, DVD-based navigation, premium sound system, heated front and rear seats, driver position memory, power passenger seat, glass moon roof, rear-window sunshades, SIRIUS Satellite Radio, wood trim, Homelink, auto-dimming/power-folding outside mirrors, bi-xenon adaptive self-leveling headlamps, retractable high-pressure headlamp washers, 17-inch wheels, a sport suspension and rear side-impact airbags.
Under the Hood
The A4's available four- or six-cylinder engines come with sophisticated new FSI Direct Injection technology designed to deliver increased power and better mileage. The V6 is the smoother and more powerful engine of the two, but the four-cylinder turbo is lighter (promoting better handling), less expensive and delivers better fuel mileage. Also available in varying combinations are front-drive and quattro all-wheel-drive systems, plus six-speed manual, six-speed Tiptronic automatic and continuously variable transmissions. If you opt for the V6, however, you'll have to take it with quattro all-wheel drive and the six-speed automatic.
2.0-liter in-line 4 Turbocharged
200 horsepower @ 5100-6000 rpm
207 lb.-ft. of torque @ 1800-5000 rpm
EPA city/highway fuel economy: 23/34 (FWD manual), 24/32 (FWD automatic), 22/31 (AWD manual), 22/30 (AWD automatic)
255 horsepower @ 6500 rpm
243 lb.-ft. of torque @ 3250 rpm
EPA city/highway fuel economy: 21/29 (FWD automatic), 17/27 (AWD manual) 19/27 (AWD automatic)
The stylish A4 is made even more attractive by its window sticker. The entry-level 2.0T has a Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $29,015; quattro all-wheel drive bumps the price to $31,115. The A4 3.2 starts at $36,315 for the front-drive and $37,215 with quattro. Fair Purchase Prices, which reflect what buyers are actually paying at dealers, shows prices hovering about midway between MSRP and Dealer Invoice. As always, be sure to shop and compare using current Fair Purchase Prices. In terms of resale value (an important factor to consider when comparing vehicles), Kelley Blue Book expects the Audi A4 to hold its value better than the Volvo S40 and Saab 9-3, but to fall just short of the BMW 3 Series and Infiniti G35.
