2024 Audi A4: Redesign, Release Date, Interior – The design of the 2024 Audi A4, along with its sedan siblings the A3, A6, and A8, is reminiscent of a Brooks Brothers suit: it is conventional in appearance, it is meticulously fitted, and it gives the impression of being costly, which it really is. It has an air that is both sophisticated and athletic, and the driving experience reflects this combination of opulence and nimbleness. The turbocharged four-cylinder engines provide it with a commanding forward momentum while also reducing its overall fuel consumption. Its tight suspension tuning and standard all-wheel drive contribute to its balanced handling, which is useful in adverse weather conditions.
The inside is put together with care using high-end materials and the kind of meticulous attention to detail that we expect from a premium manufacturer such as Audi, although the design could use a little more flare. In point of fact, one might make the same argument about the somewhat conservative external appearance. The Alfa Romeo Giulia, the Genesis G70, and the Mercedes-Benz C-class are some examples of competitors that provide either greater flair or more driver involvement, or both. However, the A4 shines when it comes to offering its own brand of excellence that is subtly communicated, which makes it an as enticing premium sedan.
In 2024, LED headlights will be standard on all A4 variants, and a Bang & Olufsen sound will be included as standard equipment on the Premium Plus trim level of the mid-range vehicle. There is now a Black Optics Plus kit that can be purchased for 45 vehicles. This package includes black exhaust tips as well as a black rear lip spoiler. In addition to the addition of adaptive cruise control to the Convenience package, Chronos Gray and District Green have been added to the pallet of colors that may be selected.
Because it comes standard with a plethora of options that elevate the driving experience of the A4, the Premium Plus trim level offers the greatest cost-to-benefit ratio of the whole A4 product line. A reprogrammable digital gauge display, a wireless charging pad, memory settings for the driver’s seat, blind-spot monitoring, and keyless entry with push-button start are some of the features that are included. We would recommend going with the more powerful 45 powerplants since it produces 60 more horsepower than the 40 and is an option that just costs an additional $1600.
The interior of the contemporary-looking A4 strikes a solid balance between style and function thanks to the use of high-quality materials and technological elements that are simple to reach. A work of contemporary art, the dashboard design of Audis, like most other Audis, is uncluttered and straightforward. When you use them, the majority of the A4 buttons and switches are located just where you want them to be and have a satisfying weight to them.
The back seat is one of the roomiest in its category and boasts cushions that are formed in an attractive manner. The Audi A4 is, like many of the other sedans in the entry-luxury class, comfortable but not roomy; if you want more extensive baggage capacity, you should opt for the A4 Allroad wagon instead.
It is possible to fold the rear seat of the A4 into a convenient 40/20/40 split, which makes it simple to transport longer things such as skis. We were able to fit five carry-on baggage in the trunk, but we were dissatisfied with the A4’s lack of storage bins and cubbies due to its limited size.
The infotainment system of the A4 is comprised of a touchscreen measuring 10.1 inches. There are a plethora of features available, some of which include Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as two USB connections and voice control. A more potent Bang & Olufsen audio system with 19 speakers is offered in certain of the available option packages. Also included in these packages are navigation, in-car Wi-Fi, and SiriusXM satellite radio. An excellent digital gauge display that Audi refers to as Virtual Cockpit is an available option, and we strongly advise going with it.
Every single A4 is driven by a derivative of the 2.0-liter turbo-four engine that is manufactured by the Volkswagen Group. This is a ubiquitous engine that can be found in a wide variety of cars, ranging from the Volkswagen Arteon to the Audi TT and the Porsche Macan. Standard all-wheel drive and a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission are included in the A4 model with this engine configuration.
Audi estimates that the base model of the A4 40 TFSI can accelerate from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 6.3 seconds when equipped with a version of the four-cylinder engine that generates 201 horsepower and 236 pound-feet of torque. We anticipate that the most recent model of the Audi A4 will provide the same 26/34 mpg city/highway ratings as the model from the previous year. The A4 45 TFSI and the A4 Allroad both up the output to 261 horsepower and 273 lb-ft, which reduces the time it takes to accelerate from 0 to 60 miles per hour to a reported 5.3 seconds for the sedan and 5.5 seconds for the wagon.

The next-generation Audi A4, which is scheduled to debut in the United States as a 2024 model, is anticipated to be made available in our market just in the form of a sedan. The Avant, also known as a wagon, will most likely not be brought over here. In spite of this, the lifted Allroad type is eligible for a visa in the United States, which should be reason enough for you to rethink your decision to purchase a crossover.
