Long Island City Audi A4 | NY Preowned Luxury Dealer
The Long Island City Audi A4 can proudly call itself the savior of the Audi brand. Introduced in the mid-’90s, the compact A4 rapidly became the darling of luxury car buyers, thanks to its attractive and beautifully finished cabin, precise handling and available Quattro all-wheel drive. High-quality materials and accents work with comfortable seating to create a European inspired ambiance, while the smooth ride makes it all come together as a perfect ride. Although those familiar traits are inherent in the Audi lineage, this Audi has become increasingly sophisticated with every redesign. It’s not hard to ascertain why the A4 has become a perennial favorite choice in the entry-level luxury car space.
The success of the Audi A4 started right from the first generation, immediately placing the automaker in proximity to its German luxury-car competitors. The A4’s good looks, smooth character and charm set the bar for all future Audi models. Available only as a sedan, the base model relied on a turbocharged four-cylinder engine, while the upgraded version offered a naturally aspirated V6. The second-generation A4 was produced from 2002-2005, and it featured a redesigned body structure and sheet metal, as well as subtle tweaks which made the overall impression a bit sportier. It was powered by either a 170-hp 1.8-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine or a 220-hp 3.0-liter V6. Both could be partnered with either a six-speed manual transmission or a CVT, which debuted in this generation. Audi’s third-generation A4 sedan and wagon was produced from 2006-2008, and was known for a renewed sense of style, a reimagined chassis and more robust engines.
The current, fourth-generation A4 was introduced in 2009, and was proud to show off its more spacious cabin, state of the art infotainment capabilities, and a revised mechanical layout for improved handling balance. The latest Audi A4 comes solely in a sedan body style. It runs on a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder, which produces 220 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. Front-wheel drive and a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) are standard on the 2.0T Frontrak model, while the 2.0T Quattro gets all-wheel drive and a six-speed manual standard. A conventional eight-speed automatic transmission is made available as an option. On the interior, you will find premium and luxury features based on model, which include such appointments as leather seating, a sunroof, Bluetooth, a 10-speaker stereo with an iPod interface and Audi’s MMI electronics controller mounted on the dash. Moving up the model trims you may find tri-zone climate control, bi-xenon headlights, a Bang & Olufsen stereo and a navigation system. The cabin remains understated yet oh-so-elegant, in keeping with the Audi heritage.
