The Audi A4 is an excellent entry-level luxury vehicle for people new to the brand, but it’s more than that. It’s a beautiful little car, with plenty of power and all the luxury features that you could expect from a high-end vehicle in its price range. The 2017 Audi offers a whole lot to customers, which is probably why it received the Daily News Auto Best Premium Car of 2017 Award. Now let’s get into just what makes the car so special.

2017 Audi A4

Beautiful and Functional Interior

Audi is known for its beautiful interior. It’s just the right balance of clean design with functional tools. The 2017 A4 comes equipped with a top-notch infotainment setup that you can upgrade to the industry-leading “Virtual Cockpit” with a 12” touchscreen and all the media goodies that you could ask for. Either way, you’re going to get a pretty comprehensive media setup that you should enjoy using.

Safe and Reliable

The A4 isn’t just about looks or comfort, it’s a confident and capable vehicle when out on the road in a range of handling conditions. The car comes with optional all-wheel drive, but holds up well even in the front-wheel drive variation. It has a 5-star rating from the NHTSA and a Top Safety Pick+ rating from the IIHS. The A4 comes with systems that offer warnings about oncoming traffic as well, helping you to remain safe before hopping out of the car.

Luxury Interior Options

If you really want the luxury experience while driving your A4 you can purchase enhancements to make it that much better. Add an optional 12.3-inch screen for more menu space and added tech features that you simply can’t get with the entry-level system. Add in the Bang and Olufsen audio system for an unparalleled listening experience. The car also features rear climate control for added comfort throughout the cabin and it’s built with most of the connectivity features that you could want out of a modern-day vehicle.

Quality Handling

Whether you’re driving with the front-wheel model or using the all-wheel Quattro system, you can tool around in different driving conditions with confidence when you’re in the A4. It stands up to slippery or uneven driving surfaces and provides dynamic stability control that’s even more impressive with the all-wheel setup.

The 2017 Audi A4 is sophisticated, it’s capable, it’s beautiful, it’s filled with modern tech and it’s just a solid car. Sure it’s more money than a budget Camry, but it’s worth the added cost for all that you get when you make the purchase.

The 2017 Audi A4 is an interesting blend of poise and power. It has a posh exterior and that many will mistake for weakness. Once you hop inside this little sedan, the whole professional facade melts away and you see that there is much more to this power house of a sedan. It’s quick off the line, handles with powerful precision and is a blast to drive around. Here’s a full overview of the little sedan and why it should be on every professionals Christmas list this year.

A Professional Exterior

While a Corvette, a Lamborghini, a Viper are all showing off their sporty heritage right on the outside, the 2017 A4 is doing the exact opposite. It’s almost like Audi had the goal of building a potent “sleeper” car. This neutral-toned, simple styled A4 would look at home in the garage of any business executive. The A4 is lightly molded, gently creased and given just enough accents to have an upscale look while offering a timeless exterior that’s still going to look quite nice a decade from now. It’s a nice professional looking vehicle, but on the outside you would never guess that it’s a fast vehicle, or that it offers a fun ride. The fact is, the A4 exterior styling is so misleading that you’ll be amazed when you climb behind the wheel.

Technical Gadgetry and Gizmos

If you like your cars to be just as plain and standard inside as the 2017 A4 looks on the outside, the A4 isn’t the car for you. Once you climb inside the cab of this car it’s clear that the A4 is anything but dull. It’s jam-packed with bright screens, interesting controls and cool lighted accents that give it a futuristic look. It’s still clean looking and nicely styled, but nobody is going to be confused into thinking that it’s a classic once they climb inside.

The 2017 A4 comes with a highly capable media system and a revolutionary virtual cockpit that shows off apps, navigation and other systems nicely.

An Exhilarating Drive

There’s something special about driving the 2017 A4. It could be the precision controls you’re presented with, the high level of power that makes the little sedan feel like it’s literally gliding down the road, or the whisper quiet way that the engine operates, even under extreme pressure. It maintains startling composure during standard operation and shifts from gear to gear with a smooth little tick. The A4 does suffer from a slight amount of turbo lag, but it jumps from 0 to 60 in just 5.3 seconds and it’s a blast to drive around.

If you’re looking for a professional compact, that still knows how to have fun, the 2017 Audi A4 is the car for you. It’s a blast to drive around and it’s well worth taking a look at. Sure it isn’t flashy, but that’s why so many people choose to own one.

The 2017 Audi A4 is Surprisingly Efficient

The 2017 Audi A4 offers a great blend of features and looks, but one of the most exciting of them all might just be te high level of fuel efficiency that the car offers. Sure it’s not going to beat out a Prius anytime soon, but it does quite well for the powerful little luxury sedan that it is. If you’re looking for a sedan that will save you a bit of money at the pump, while still being something that you can be proud to drive around, the 2017 A4 is a good option for you to consider.

Excellent Fuel Efficiency

The A4 gets about 27 MPG in the city and 37 MPG while out on the highway. That means if you do mostly highway driving you can expect a pretty affordable driving experience overall. Even when you  drive a mix of the two types you’ll get around 31 MPG combined mileage with the car. That’s exceptional for an A4 and a major improvement over the older versions of the Audi model.

Driver Assistance Features

Not only does the A4 do really well out on the highway, but it comes with some very nice driver assistance features as standard. When you pick up the 2017 A4 you’ll enjoy Virtual cockpit as well as several adaptive safety features that help make driving it safer than ever before.

Fuel Efficiency Enhancements

In order to achieve such a high level of efficiency, Audi had to make some significant enhancements to the A4. The company made use of a more efficient 2.0T TSFI engine that can deliver more power with less fuel. They also relied on a different combustion pattern to get even more out of the engine than what’s possible from the standard version on older model years of the vehicle. These two enhancements come together and offer an excellent level of efficiency for a luxury sedan.

Sure the A4 isn’t really about fuel efficiency, and it’s about luxury at an excellent value, but that efficiency only serves to make the car even more appealing. It’s something that you’ll enjoy every time that you have to refill your tank, and it’s something that you can brag about to all your buddies as well.
