The 2018 Audi A4 is swift, silent, and sporty—the standard by which its competitors are measured. The exterior is understated; its interior is handsome and sophisticated, with materials that are pleasing to see and touch. Handling is stable, but the overboosted steering is too light at highway speeds. The turbo four makes 252 hp and pairs with a seven-speed automatic. Front-drive is standard; all-wheel drive is optional. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard; a 19-speaker audio system is optional.

In the case of the 2018 Audi A4 2.0T Quattro, the sound-level meter confirms its soft-spoken nature. At a steady 70 mph, the A4 puts out a mere 63 decibels. That’s less noise than you’ll get in an S-class, Audi’s own A8, and the sensory-deprivation tank also known as the Lexus LS600hL. A Rolls-Royce Phantom is quieter, but only by one decibel. Point the A4 down a highway and all you hear is a light ruffling of wind—and watch your speed, the A4 is barely louder at 100 mph.

2018 A4 Audi Overview

Under that thick veil of conservatism and refinement, however, is indeed a sports sedan. Rev it up, and the turbocharged inline-four’s bark pierces the calm. The four-cylinder is a variation of the engine that powered the previous 2018 Audi A4, iron block and all, but enhancements to the head and turbocharger bring output to 252 horsepower at 6000 rpm and 273 pound-feet of torque at 1600 rpm, up from 220 horses and 258 pound-feet. Snarly yet smooth, the four is free of lag and delivers a strong pull from idle to redline.

More-important numbers to Americans will be the EPA’s fuel-economy estimates. The 2018 Audi A4 Quattro returns 24 mpg in city and 31 in highway tests, which works out to 27 mpg combined. That’s a 3-mpg improvement in the city and 1 mpg better on the highway versus the outgoing A4 2.0T. In our hands, the car managed 22 mpg overall in a mix of highway driving and stop-and-go traffic, and after attacking Angeles Crest and Angeles Forest highways as if they were Group B rally stages.

Thus, $54,275 for the test car, which also features heat to the rear seats and steering wheel, cooled front sport seats, the electronically adjustable suspension, and the $1800 Driver Assistance package that gives the 2018 Audi A4 the ability to briefly drive itself. If you’re the type who’ll never use it, save the money. An A4 without the self-driving function, the head-up display, and a few other features such as heated rear seats can be had for $47,750.
