Model Highlights

Whether as a sedan, Avant wagon, or Cabriolet convertible--the 2008 Audi A4 is available with a choice of two direct-injection engines: a 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder (designated 2.0T FSI) making 200 horsepower, and a 3.2L V6 (designated 3.2 FSI) making 255 horsepower.

The A4 sedan can be had with either front- or all-wheel drive; front-wheel-drive versions come with either a six-speed manual or continuously variable transmission (CVT), while "quattro" all-wheel-drive versions come with either the manual or a six-speed Tiptronic automatic.

Sedans and wagons have a 60/40-split folding back seat, and wagons also have a tailgate light that illuminates the area directly behind the car, plus a storage compartment hidden below the cargo floor and an extra 12-volt outlet. Both the sedan and wagon have storage spaces under the front seats.

The Cabriolet is available with the same range of engines and includes more attention to safety than most convertibles, with special side-sill reinforcements, stronger, impact-absorbing doors, specially designed side-impact air bags, and two pop-up rollover bars at the back of the cabin. The folding soft top also has more thermal and sound insulation for year-round driving, especially when equipped with quattro. The Cabriolet also has a different gauge appearance and leather upholstered sport seats, along with available walnut or birch wood trim.

The sporty S4 model adds a 340-horsepower, 4.2L V8 engine and a choice of a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission. Manual-transmission versions get a performance-oriented version of the quattro all-wheel-drive system that reverts to a torque split of 60 percent to the rear wheels during normal driving. As with all versions of quattro, torque is still sent to the wheels with the most traction as needed.

S4 models also get numerous visual cues, including quad exhaust pipes and various interior and exterior trim changes. S4 sedans get an integrated trunklid spoiler, while S4 Avants get distinctive aluminum roof rails.

The S4 sedan also has an available sport package that adds a more aggressive look, with front and rear carbon-fiber lip spoilers along with rear-bumper side scoops.

All A4 and S4 models come with standard ESP stability control with anti-lock brakes and brake assist, and the Sideguard head air bag system, which offers full head protection even when the car rolls over after a primary collision. In the front seats, there are RearGuard head restraints aimed at preventing whiplash injuries.

The A4 interior stands out with its walnut wood inlays on V6 models and aluminum inlays on four-cylinder models. Notable options include a DVD navigation system with a large 6.5-inch screen and SD-card sound-system input, and a dynamic cornering system which helps illuminate into corners with swiveling bi-xenon beams. The optional Audi Parking System (APS) provides an audible signal while backing toward a vehicle or object.


Value Writeup

Audi spans a very wide array of uses--and prices--with its 2008 A4 family. The A4 can range from an affordable, economical four-cylinder sport sedan or wagon to the sunny-day Cabriolet model, all the way up to performance-oriented S4 models. The availability of quattro all-wheel drive with any of the body styles and with any of the engines can turn each of these variants into a safe all-weather vehicle, and the Cabriolet ranks as one of the safest convertibles on the market.


Pros

Powerful direct-injection engines; assured handling; attractive interior; all-weather traction with quattro.


Model News

The 2008 Audi A4 and S4 line carries forward with minimal changes. A number of S-Line visual features are now standard (bumpers, door sills, grille), as is a tire pressure monitor. The sedans and Avant wagons now have a standard sunroof as well. Models with the 3.2L engine now ride on 18-inch alloy wheels as opposed to 17s, and the front seats are heated. An iPod glovebox interface is a new option for the 2008 model year.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
