The latest Audi car I tested was the 2013 A4 2.0 quattro.
Here are the specs of the model I tested.

Audi A4 is the bestselling car from Audi. And after testing for few days I totally understand why. It looks modern yet elegant, stylish and comfortable. It provides perfect combination of luxury and sports, and it’s far ahead in technology than anyone else. It’s 2.0 TFSI engine provides ample power to thrill you on your seat yet offers fuel economy to satisfy your wallet. If you are looking for ideal balance between performance and fuel efficiency then look no further than Audi A4. The interior looks better than any other car of same category.
The Audi A4 offers four driving modes to choose from based on how you want the car to behave for during your trip. The engine, steering and suspension are adjust according to your selected driving mode
Dynamic mode free up the engine from the all constraints and you get maximum power for a thrilling ride. This mode is also the least fuel efficient.
Comfort mode softens up the suspension and steering to increase the overall comfort level of the ride and you get that smooth cruising feeling specially if you are on a back seat, or if you are stuck in traffic and don’t want to drive in Dynamic mode.
Efficiency mode limits the power output a little and optimizes the transmission to increase fuel efficiency. You sacrifice little bit of performance to get those extra miles from a gallon of fuel. I would probably select Efficiency mode when I am going on a long drive and don’t need a sports car behavior.
And then there is Auto mode which selects any of the above modes based on your driving style. It takes a little practice to get the most out of auto mode. This is the mode I would drive in mostly.
Another feature I liked a lot was the auto engine stop feature in which the engine stops automatically as soon as the car comes at rest, say for example at a traffic light, and starts again as soon as you left your foot off the break. This also adds to the fuel efficiency since you don’t burn extra fuel while the car is at rest.
Combine all of the above with state of the art entertainment system and the car will give you endless pleasure, so much that you will be looking for excuses to get in the car and drive it.
I totally loved the Audi A4. If you are looking for an entry level luxury sedan with performance, comfort and efficiency all rolled out into one, then look no further than Audi A4. I highly recommend quattro package to get that extra oomph from all wheel drive.
Now I just have to save enough money to buy this car. Let’s see how long it takes.
