2015 Audi A4 Progressiv plus
The 2015 Audi A4 stands as a strong entry in its segment, and that's a testament to its trend-setting design -even with a redesigned version waiting in the wings. With the A4, you can take your pick from its tasteful palette of exterior and interior trims, high-tech features, and various driving flavors from mild to intense.
Ride and handling have always been an A4 strength, and the latest generation is no different. The electric power steering has decent feedback, and the ride is supple enough to be forgiving on poorly maintained roads, though we'd still opt into the sport package's 18-inch summer tires and stiffer shocks. We'd opt out of Drive Select and dynamic steering, which apply too many electronic and algorithmic formulas to steering and ride quality. The sport setup is good enough to skip Drive Select, and it's cheaper.
The A4's performance holds its own against its rivals, but the car's high-quality interior is where the car excels. Audi doesn't really do "trendy," and the A4's resulting clean lines, premium materials and pleasing accent lighting give the cabin a minimalist cool that makes some competitors' designs feel frumpy or look as if they're just trying too hard by comparison. Add to it a decently sized backseat and trunk and the Audi's cabin is suitably practical as well.
What the 2015 Audi A4's turbocharged four-cylinder lacks in sonic personality, it makes up for in pleasant, punchy performance. It can still pin you to your seat when you put the gas pedal to the floor, and it offers ample torque for quick bursts of acceleration and highway merges. For drivers who crave more, the sport-focused S4 should more than suffice.
In standard form, the A4 is only slightly biased toward sporty and provides a pretty comfortable ride quality. Yet when the road bends, the A4 still feels balanced, secure and athletic. Opting for all-wheel drive further enhances the A4's capabilities and driver confidence, not to mention its stability in wet weather.
