2017 Audi A4 Charlotte, NC
2017 Audi A4 Charlotte, NC
There's a battle raging in the luxury segment, both among brands and even within automakers' lineups, trying to find the best balance between optimal sport performance and flawless driver-centric comforts. And it can be difficult--we've seen some cars that sacrifice a sharper and more dynamic handling for added creature comforts, while others can push the power but lose the palatial amenities that make these vehicles such fantastic daily drivers in areas like Charlotte, Huntersville, Cornelius, Concord, and Lake Norman.
But, there is one brand--and one four-door in particular--that has been spared the agonies of this battle: the 2017 Audi A4. With the comforts, quality, performance, and smarts that you'd expect from the Audi brand, and an abundance of class-leading new improvements, this midsize luxury sedan perfectly pairs the two worlds of form and function to dominate in an ever-crowding class.
The ninth-generation Audi A4 looks to continue its legacy of practical, fun, and capable performance. With 45 years of practice under its belt, the new model is improved at nearly every angle to offer the best possible driving experience to those who demand exactly that. Explore 2017 Audi A4 research, performance specs, interior dimensions, fuel economy, safety, technology, and more to see just why this bold new sedan is redefining the segment.
New vehicle options include the A4 Premium, Premium Plus, Prestige, and the new 2017 Audi A4 First Edition with special package options.
Quite literally, the A4 has been redesigned from front to back to improve everything from cabin noise to aerodynamics. Even the door handles underwent a brief makeover--they now open slightly upward, instead of straight outward, for a more comfortable and ergonomic motion. The available LED headlights are slightly undercut for a sleeker, more aggressive look; the single-frame grille completes the expression beautifully.
An artistic double-accent line streaks across the full length of the vehicle's side, to create an impression of extension and flow. It also accentuates the A4's improved aero-acoustics.
New for the 2017 model year, and thanks to Audi's ultra lightweight technology, the redesign is up to ninety-nine pounds lighter than the previous model, even though the body itself offers more length and width. This improves not only fuel economy, but acceleration and overall driving dynamics.
For some luxury automakers, function follows fashion--they create the image and hope that the performance follows. Audi disagrees. They know that nothing is more beautiful than the true heart of a sports car, and their luxuries are crafted around that power and vivacity. The A4 sedan is no exception; though its new exterior is stunning, it is but a vessel.
Standard Audi A4 performance is powered by the brand's legendary 2.0-liter TFSI four-cylinder engine, tuned for a class-leading 252 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque. A sleek and capable seven-speed S-tronic dual-clutch transmission offers smooth and easy shifting, allowing this spirited sedan to sprint from 0 to 60 in just 6.1 seconds when equipped with standard front-wheel drive, and a mere 5.7 seconds when equipped with available quattro all-wheel drive. The AWD system can send up to 70% of torque to the front wheels, and 85% of torque back to the rear wheels, giving you unparalleled control in less-than-ideal conditions.
Performance has been tuned and tweaked to provide stunning new comforts for the driver and passenger alike. New axles make for an effortless feel on the road, while standard Audi drive select lets you customize settings for steering, engine, and transmission performance based on efficiency, comfort, and athleticism.
While the pursuit of performance is both noble and necessary when it comes to a car like this, even the most dedicated can admit a love for the finer things in life; and the A4 provides in style. The vehicle overall has been redesigned to offer more shoulder, head, and rear leg room, so you're free to stretch out and truly enjoy your drive, mile after mile.
Ambient LED lighting and three-zone automatic climate control give you unfettered command of your environment, while premium leather-appointed seating--with available lumbar support, heating and ventilation functions, and power controls, of course--cradles you in a refinement that thoroughly complements the wildly fun gaits of your Audi A4.
And that's all before you even pull out onto the road.
If intelligence is the new rock-and-roll, then the 2017 Audi A4 is the Mick Jagger of luxury sedans. Packed with the best new connectivity features, visual display options, and touch-sensitive responsiveness, the new A4 sedan takes everything that we've loved about the outgoing models and trimmed, boosted, enhanced, and promoted it from the inside out to offer a truly incredible car.
The MMI (multimedia and navigation) system has been redesigned to work effectively with either the rotary shift knob, with the handwriting touchpad, and with natural language selection. Speak to your Audi like you would to any copilot, and it will respond. The system also pairs to your smartphone through either Apple CarPlay or Android Auto for a seamless mobile experience--both are offered as standard equipment on the A4. For the truly tech-obsessed, new Audi Connect functionality offers enhanced control over your car through your smartphone: lock doors, view vehicle stats, and even monitor your vehicle's use.
Audi Virtual Cockpit is readily available on the A4, offering a stunning 12.3" digital display--the largest in its class--and the ability to deliver information effortlessly to the driver. Choose from a classic instrument cluster or panoramic infotainment system, with Google Earth navigation, for full access to all of the details you need to know. Available Head-Up Display projects key data onto the windshield, appearing to show at a distance of 6.6 feet away; it's the most efficient and safe information-delivery system for driver vision.
And if that's not music to your ears, then the available Bang & Olufsen premium sound system--with 19 intuitively-placed speakers--surely will be.
While performance, style, and comfortable convenience are thrilling and crave-worthy factors in the car-buying process, we know that modern consumers demand more. Fortunately, through the use of radar technology and sensors placed around the vehicle, the 2017 Audi A4 offers twenty-one available safety and security systems for driver assistance, including:

Looking for even more peace of mind? The new A4 comes standard with Audi's 4-year / 50,000-mile New Vehicle Warranty, so you can drive with confidence.
We encourage you to research, compare, list, and consider all of your options; but we have a feeling that you will return to the A4 again and again.
