May 14th, 2013

compact luxury sedanWorldwide car experts and reporters have taken the time to thoroughly review the 2013 Audi A4 and gave it their stamp of approval.

“A4 quickly proved a favorite among luxury-car buyers thanks to its handsome, well-finished cabin, sharp handling and available Quattro all-wheel drive,” stated a review from Edmunds.com.

“… most agree that the cabin is well thought out with high-quality materials,” noted the U.S. News.

We respect their opinions, but it’s often important to look at things from multiple perspectives. Looking at a consumer car review can truly explain the things that matter to you. Using a consumer car review constructed by unbiased people, as we utilize in our tests, will provide the insights and truths about a vehicle that are necessary to make an educated buying decision.

The 2013 Audi A4, found in our compact luxury sedan segment, received a rating of 3.9 out of 5 in our consumer car review. The Audi A4 was the German carmaker’s best seller in America for several years, until it was trumped by the Audi Q5 earlier this year. Overall the Audi A4 came in third in the compact luxury sedan segment based on information provided during our consumer car review.

The car wasn’t always such a success, however. Upon introducing the A4, Audi found that many owners complained about the lack of interior space and horsepower. Since entering the U.S. market, “the Audi A4 has grown about ten inches in length and has a wider, more spacious interior,” according to The Car Connection.  Throughout the years, the company has worked to perfect this vehicle, and the 2013 Audi A4 reflects the carmaker’s hard work.

Among our testers, the trunk area, driver visibility and low speed maneuverability of the 2013 Audi A4 were found to be the best in segment. The trunk storage space and easy accessibility were among the most appealing features of this compact luxury sedan. Additionally, our testers found that the front downward and outside mirror visibility were exceptional in the 2013 Audi A4.

Our consumer car review found an above average grade for both exterior appearance and rear seat environment.  Our consumer car review testers noted that entering and exiting this car was easy, and the entire backseat area provided ample storage and comfort. Tying with the Lexus IS, the 2013 Audi A4 came in third for highest overall exterior appearance. Our testers enjoyed the headlamp detail, grille and aggressive look on the front view on this compact luxury sedan.
