2017 Audi A4 Closes the Gap Between Sports Car and Sedan

2017-03-31T13:34:05+00:00March 31st, 2017|Audi, luxury, New Vehicles|

The 2017 Audi A4 is the perfect car for drivers who want the commanding power of a sports car, without sacrificing the comfort and luxury of a premium sedan.

The Audi A4 has sort of created this overlapping category of vehicle that’s being referred to as a “sport sedan.” This is because the A4 combines sporty and luxurious into one efficiently neat package. The jump from the 2016 A4 model to the new 2017 A4 model haven’t done much to change in exterior appearance. Outside of modest revisions to the overall dimensions, a slightly more aggressive grille and front end, and more modern head and taillights (with optional LEDs) the A4 stuck to its already attractive previous design. However, by cutting weight and implementing the newest technology, Audi has effectively developed a more efficient and unique balance to create the ultimate “sport sedan.”

Swift, Silent, and Sporty

By substituting many of the formerly steel parts with light-weight aluminum, Audi managed to trim the weight of the previous A4 model by about 100 pounds. The result is a more efficient ride with a steadier grip for the drive.

Though the 2017 Audi A4 is one of the most silent rides on the market, measuring at just 63 decibels at a steady 70 mph, the sedan still maintains its strength and athleticism under the hood. The turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine with enhancements to the head increase the output to 252 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque, up from the previous model’s 220 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque.

To supplement this powerful engine is a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Audi did extensive work to imitate a torque-converter automatic, and it shows. The Audi A4 shifts smoothly and responsively from a stop, slow roll, or quick acceleration. When all added up, the 2017 Audi A4 boasts an impressive 31 mpg in the highway and 24 mpg in the city for an average 27 mpg combined.

Driving an Audi is a satisfying experience, but it comes with responsibility. When purchasing a luxury vehicle like the Audi A4, it’s important to take proper care of it. At Audi Santa Barbara, our team of brand-trained technicians are happy to help you keep your vehicle working at peak performance for as long as possible. You can even schedule maintenance and service appointments on our website. So contact Audi Santa Barbara to learn more about the 2017 Audi A4 and the rest of our extensive Audi selection.
