Audi A4 enters the 2021 car market with a set of reasonable upgrades including its performance section. It stays within the so-called all-road capable car although some may dislike its rather conservative design. Overall, the 2021 version of Audi A4 offers a clean interior cabin and a comfortable ride regardless of the terrain to handle. It is even capable to handle a little bit of competition on track although there is a bunch of safety features included in it.
The 2021-year model of Audi A4 will be available with a starting price of $40.000 for its base model. There will be different trims for this car that include Prestige, Premium Plus, and Premium. Alongside the new A4, Audi also prepared the new S4 for $50.000 base price. There will also be the Allroad A4 wagon at its base price of $45.000. That set of the price range is not the most economic one within its market segment although the new BMW 4-Series’ starting price is at $46.595.
So far there is not much change done by the designers and engineers of Audi for the 2021-year model of A4. The powertrain department remains to squeeze the 2.0-liter turbo with 4 cylinders for both the standard A4 and the A4 Allroad. The power output is slightly increased in just 13 horsepower from the same engine in last year’s version of A4. The drivetrain is in all-wheel-drive for both versions of A4 released as the 2021-year model with a 7-speed automatic type of transmission.
Comfort is one of the best things to expect from the Audi A4. Despite its capability to run at high speed, the use of a four-wheel independent suspension system helps the car to remain calm and stable. That is one of the things that lead to the so-called all-road driving capability of the Audi A4 even in its standard or base model. The visible difference of the standard version and the Allroad version is the height. The Allroad A4 is a bit higher than the standard A4 for a better all-road driving experience.
The 2021 Audi A4 Premium is the much-recommended version to consider buying once it is available. It gets most of the good stuff from Audi that includes heated power-adjustable front seats, leather upholstery, a sunroof, three-zone climate control, 17-inch wheels, and both Android Auto as well as Apple CarPlay in its 10.1-inch touchscreen control display. The Premium Plus only adds a bigger set of wheels, a bigger touchscreen control display, parking sensors, adaptive cruise control, and active lane control.
At glance, the familiar shape of A4 does not change a lot for the 2021-year model in terms of its exterior. The interior remains as friendly and comfortable as ever with a spacious room for 4 adults inside. The legroom of the rear-seat is at 35 inches which is remarkably spacious. Unfortunately, the trunk is only capable of holding stuff up to 13 cubic feet in the standard A4. The Allroad wagon offers better trunk space at 60 cubic feet because it is a wagon instead of a sedan.
