What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Powertrain

It's a flexible, fairly muted powerplant-but it's easily outstripped by the 420-horsepower turbocharged V-8 engine found in the S6.
by The Car Connection (Mar, 2014)
It's a combo rendered more sedate by the A6's size and weight-even more so with the optional all-wheel drive, which at least adopts an eight-speed automatic instead of the CVT.
by The Car Connection (Mar, 2014)
The S4's engine is upgraded to a supercharged 3.0-liter V-6 with direct injection, rated at 333 horsepower.
by The Car Connection (Mar, 2014)

Interior

Despite the high-quality construction, there's more black plastic on the dash, buttons, and controls than you might expect, and not all of it feels as good as the rest of the cabin.
by The Car Connection (Mar, 2014)
The 2014 Audi A4 remains one of the most beautiful compact luxury sedans inside and out, though some materials could be of higher quality.
by The Car Connection (Mar, 2014)
Available wood and metal trim and leather upholstery upgrades offer handsome, quality-feeling additions to the cabin.
by The Car Connection (Mar, 2014)

Transmission

The usual power features, leather seats, and satellite radio are standard on the A4; Bluetooth and a music interface are standard for 2014.
by The Car Connection (Mar, 2014)
No matter which one you choose, Audi's entry-level sedan has good front seats, excellent sport seats available as an option (they're standard on the S4) and good room for those passengers.
by The Car Connection (Mar, 2014)
In addition to its strong safety scores, the 2014 A4 and S4 also include ample standard safety equipment, including: dual front, side, and curtain airbags; stability and traction control; and active headrests (including three across the back).
by The Car Connection (Mar, 2014)

Handling

An available Sport package brings bolstered sport seats with lumbar adjustment, a three-spoke steering wheel with sport paddles, and a sport suspension.
by The Car Connection (Mar, 2014)
The S4's handling is upgraded as well, making for a smooth and satisfying spirited driving.
by The Car Connection (Mar, 2014)
No matter which version you choose, the A6 has good handling, in either front- or all-wheel drive; even though its all-wheel drive system is biased to the rear it still prefers nose-heavy understeer.
by The Car Connection (Mar, 2014)

Performance

Audi says it's good for 0-60 mph times of 5.4 seconds, and the same governed top speed of 130 mph.
by The Car Connection (Mar, 2014)
We'd be much more pleased to pay the premium up front for Audi's excellent new turbodiesel 240-hp 3.0-liter six.
by The Car Connection (Mar, 2014)
It's a sharp car with an aggressive stance yet relaxed profile, attractive from any angle.
by The Car Connection (Mar, 2014)
