Introduction

The Audi A4 benefitted from a full redesign for 2017, so there are no major changes for 2018. For 2018, its high-performance sibling, the S4, gets the redesign that the A4 got for 2017.

The all-new 2018 Audi S4 features a lower nose, higher LED headlamps that are wispy and boomerang-shaped, and sharper sheetmetal creases. The S4 is powered by a new turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 making 354 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque. The single twin-scroll turbocharger is designed to reduce turbo lag by feeding air to one bank of cylinders before the other. Using an 8-speed automatic transmission, it bursts from zero to sixty miles per hour in 4.4 seconds, faster than the BMW 340i and Mercedes AMG C43. The 2018 S4 front suspension uses more aluminum to reduce unsprung weight and thus improve handling, while available adaptive dampers lower the chassis. Another new option is a sport rear differential that moves power between the rear wheels in the Quattro system, and comes with sport steering that’s maybe too quick at high speed.

The A4 comes standard with a super smooth 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine making 190 horsepower and 236 pound-feet of torque. Called the 2.0 TFSI ultra, it gets an awesome 37 Highway miles per gallon EPA rating, mated to a paddle-shifting 7-speed S-tronic dual-clutch automated transmission. It’s a superb standard powertrain.

The upgrade engine is a strong 2.0-liter turbo making 252 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque, using that same 7-speed twin clutch transmission. It accelerates from zero to sixty in 5.6 seconds. With front-wheel-drive, the A4 with this engine rates 25/33 mpg City/Highway, or 28 mpg Combined, and 1 less mpg with Quattro. This engine is called the 2.0 TFSI, which we find confusing, given the base engine is called 2.0 TFSI ultra.

Rivals to Audi A4 include BMW 3 Series, Mercedes-Benz C-Class, Jaguar XE, Cadillac ATS, and Lexus IS.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gives the A4 five stars overall, but only four stars for front impact. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has made the A4 a Top Safety Pick Plus, when equipped with active LED headlamps that bend around corners.

Lineup

The 2018 Audi A4 Premium comes with front-wheel drive and the 2.0-liter TFSI ultra engine ($36,000) or the 2.0 TFSI engine ($40,500). Standard equipment on the Premium includes leather seating surfaces, power front seats, rearview camera, xenon-plus headlamps, sunroof, 17-inch wheels, 10-speaker audio with Bluetooth audio streaming, and smartphone interface.

Premium Plus ($39,200) adds 18-inch wheels, parking sensors, S line exterior trim, and a Bang & Olufsen 755-watt, 19-speaker 3-D audio system. It’s available with the upgrade engine ($43,700).

Prestige ($45,500) models add the virtual cockpit instrument display, head-up display, surround-view cameras, blind-spot monitoring, and navigation with voice control. Prestige models can get the adaptive damping suspension, plus a Driver Assistance Package that includes adaptive cruise control and traffic-sign recognition. The upgrade engine is available ($50,000).

Quattro all-wheel drive and a choice of manual transmission or 7-speed dual-clutch are available.

For 2018 there is a new Black Optic Plus package with black and red interior and exterior trim. (All prices are MSRP and do not include destination charge.)

Safety options include LED headlamps, blind-spot monitoring, lane-keeping assist, forward-collision warning with automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control with stop-and-follow capability, and rear-seat side airbags.

Walkaround

The A4 is aerodynamically clean, while being neither dramatic nor adventuresome. It doesn’t bedazzle, it endures, as it has for 20 years since it was introduced. Its nose is a bit more athletic than it used to be, with a horizontal grille that wraps and flows rearward to a taller and more wedge-shaped tail. A large greenhouse tapers smartly toward the roof.

The S4 is the dramatic one, totally athletic in its looks.

Interior

The cabin is fairly roomy, with front seats that are comfortable and supportive, if a bit snug in their firm bolstering. The standard leather and ambient LED lighting are nice. A disciplined instrument panel makes the digital displays stand out. The standard screen is seven inches. The dashboard is low so driver visibility is good, and it wraps around the sides a bit. The steering wheel isn’t too big, and its controls are easy to use. Toggle switches trigger the tri-zone automatic climate control system.

There is an available giant 12.3-inch color display for navigation, and a full-color head-up display for speed and other driver data. With the available virtual cockpit, dazzling screens face the driver. Most models have electronic displays that can switch from one view to another. Though the displays are stunning and refresh quickly, the system can be distracting.

Until the 2017 model, rear legroom was tight in the A4, and the seat cushion was low, but no longer. Although it’s on the small side for a midsize car, it’s as roomy as rivals, in particular the BMW 3 Series. A tall passenger can ride comfortably behind a tall driver. In fact, five adults can fit inside.

The latest version of Multi-Media Interface (MMI) accepts inputs from voice, steering-wheel controls, or handwritten letters on a scratchpad. All A4s now include smartphone-app features.

Driving Impressions

Even the base engine displays gratifying zeal, natural engine sounds while being smooth and well balanced. The paddle-shifting twin-clutch 7-speed transmission is evolved and not jerky like some of them.

The A4 doesn’t have the best handling among midsize sedans, as some of the competitors have the advantage of rear-wheel drive; but it’s better than most and its road manners are impressive. The chassis was stiffened with the recent redesign, while the weight was reduced, and it shows. The adaptive dampers are well worth their cost, as they soften the bumps while giving firmness to the control. A mode in the electric power steering increases the boost and broadens the steering angle at low speeds, easing urban maneuvering. Brake action is progressive, with excellent pedal feel.

Audi Drive Select includes four modes: Auto, Comfort, Dynamic, and Individual. The A4 feels most adept with the active dampers and the steering and transmission in dynamic mode. It responds promptly and takes corners predictably.

Still, handling isn’t quite as sharp and sporty in the front-wheel-drive based A4 as that of some of its rear-wheel-drive rivals. In inclement conditions, however, its legendary Quattro all-wheel drive should give the Audi an advantage.

As for the new S4, the turbocharger’s feeding one bank of three cylinders first, and then the other, works as designed to reduce turbo lag. The S4 never gets breathless, and comes on the power briskly and without drama. Almost all of the torque is available early, at a super low 1350 rpm.

The 8-speed automatic transmission rips off confident shifts with the steering-wheel paddles. But it isn’t quick, and, regardless of the drive mode the car is in, it’s eager to upshift to save fuel, unless you’re standing on the gas.

The S4 uses four-wheel independent suspension, with the five-link front setup revised for 2018 to be lighter. The new adaptive dampers lower the ride height by one inch, and even in Dynamic mode they’re not stiff. In fact, all of the modes feel on the side of comfort. The S4 seems meant to be an all-around car, rather than an aggressive sport sedan, despite its aggressive stance.

The available rear differential that moves the torque between the rear wheels in corners enables the S4 to perform well on the track, but the sport steering that comes with it is pretty aggressive. The variable ratio quickens with speed, but it’s unpredictable, not progressively linear, so the S4 can get darty when you don’t want it to be. You have to be careful and sensitive with the steering wheel when you’re pushing it.

Summary

Audi A4 comes with a superlative powertrain, with the smoothest 2.0 turbo in the business, and a fully evolved 7-speed dual clutch automated transmission. Clean and conservative styling, satisfying ride, good-enough cornering, and competitive cabin technology. The S4 is redesigned for 2018, with sharper styling, a powerful V6 turbo, new adaptive dampers, and a sophisticated rear differential.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.

Options

This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.

 

Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
