New Audi A4 Charlotte

The New 2018 Audi A4 in Charlotte Offers Classic Sports Car Performance with a Smart New Edge

There's a battle raging in the Charlotte luxury segment--both among brands and even within automakers' own 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 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.

But, there is one car in particular that has been spared the agonies of this battle: the 2018 Audi A4. After its major redesign last year, the Audi A4 is even more impressive. With the comforts, quality, performance, and smarts that you'd expect from the Audi brand--and an abundance of class-leading features and technologies--this midsize luxury sedan perfectly pairs the two worlds of form and function to dominate in a crowded class.

Striding confidently into the second year of its ninth generation, the 2018 Audi A4 looks to continue its legacy of practical, fun, and capable performance in the Huntersville and Concord areas. It's well-equipped to offer the best possible driving experience, to those who demand exactly that, with nearly five decades of intimacy with performance engineering. New vehicle options near Cornelius and Lake Norman include the 2018 A4 Premium, 2018 A4 Premium Plus, and the top-of-the-line 2018 A4 Prestige.

The 2018 Audi A4 Offers Impeccable Performance and Legendary Drive

For some luxury automakers, function follows fashion--they create the image and hope that the performance follows. Audi disagrees. Audi engineers 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 2018 Audi A4 sedan is no exception; though its exterior is stunning, it is but a vessel for what it carries inside.

New for 2018, all Audi A4 models now offer choice of two turbocharged fuel-stratified injection (TFSI) engines. The base option for Premium, Premium Plus, and Prestige is Audi's new 2.0 TFSI ultra engine, which offers 190 horsepower and 236 pound-feet of torque but can see up to 37 miles per gallon. Upgrade to the brand's legendary 2.0-liter TFSI four-cylinder for a class-leading 252 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque. Both engines pair to an available sleek and capable seven-speed S-tronic dual-clutch transmission, which offers smooth and easy shifting. This advanced piece of equipment allows the 2018 Audi A4 to sprint from 0 to 60 in just 7.1 seconds when equipped with the TFSI ultra engine and standard front-wheel drive, and a mere 5.7 seconds when equipped with available TFSI turbo engine and quattro all-wheel drive.  Audi's iconic 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.


Lightweight Design Offers Biting Dynamics, and Smooth Style

Last year, the Audi A4 was redesigned from front to back to improve everything from cabin noise to aerodynamics; even the door handles underwent a brief makeover--they would open slightly upward, instead of straight outward, for a more comfortable and ergonomic motion. 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. The available LED headlights were slightly undercut last year for a sleeker, more aggressive look, while the single-frame grille completed the expression beautifully.

The 2018 Audi A4 continues to benefit from Audi's ultra lightweight technology, which helped shed up to ninety-nine pounds from the previous generation, even though the body itself currently offers more length and width; this helped to improve not only fuel economy, but acceleration and overall driving dynamics.

Because of the major styling updates that the sedan saw for the birth of the new generation, the 2018 Audi A4 does not offer any major exterior or design changes for the new model-year. However, a new Black Optic Plus package (18-inch black alloy wheels, rear spoiler and gloss black side mirrors, a flat-bottom steering wheel, gloss black sill blades, red brake calipers, piano black inlays, and red contrast stitching) can be added to the 2018 Audi A4 for a bold new flavor.

Performance has been tuned and tweaked to provide stunning comforts for the driver and passenger alike. Carefully-engineered 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.

Life Imitates Art: Premium Interior Options

While the pursuit of performance is both noble and necessary when it comes to a sports car like this, even the most dedicated enthusiast can admit a fondness for the finer things in life; and the 2018 Audi A4 provides. The sedan was redesigned last year 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 genuine leather-appointed seating (not leatherette)--with available lumbar support, new standard heated seats, and power controls, of course--supports you in refinement that thoroughly complements the wildly fun gaits of the A4.

And that's all before you even pull begin your drive.

Intelligent is the New Enticing: Technology Defines the New A4 Generation

Audi marketed the beginning of the ninth-generation A4 with "intelligence is the new rock-and-roll"; if this is true, then the 2018 Audi A4 is the Mick Jagger of luxury sports sedans. Packed with the best new connectivity features, visual display options, and touch-sensitive responsiveness, the new A4 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 Audi MMI (multimedia and navigation) system has been designed to work effectively with the rotary shift knob, with the available handwriting touchpad, and with natural language selection--which means you can speak to your Audi like you would to any copilot, and it will respond. The system in the 2018 Audi A4 also pairs to your smartphone through either Apple CarPlay or Android Auto for a seamless mobile experience--both are offered as standard equipment. 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 2018 Audi 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.

More Than Skin Deep, the Beauty of the 2018 Audi A4 Is in the Details
