The 2011 Audi A4 has an aggressive sport-sedan profile and a sharp sense of style outside and a neatly arranged cabin, with maybe a little less panache than in the past.

In 2009, Audi gave its A4 a complete redesign, with the model gaining a completely new sense of proportion. With a longer hood, the current A4 has a more swept-back, rear-wheel-drive look to it; and it's longer and wider than its predecessor. The deep Audi grille, LED daytime running lights, and canted headlamps all rest more attractively on the Audi A5/S5 coupes and cabriolets, but the A4 sedan and Avant wagon are still very attractive.

What is especially to like about the A4 is its aggressive look, and how the whole design fits together. From a few paces back, the A4, like the A5 with which is shares its proportions and most of the mechanicals, has presence—serious, I-mean-business presence on the street. The sport-package wheels, exhaust tips, and Premium-package xenon headlamps and LED running lamps and tail lamps (along with the impressive detailing around the front air dam) altogether give this sedan quite the look.

Inside, the A4 has a deeper, darker binnacled dash that leaves out some of the more expensive wood trim of the past, and in the process omits some of the impression of quiet luxury that used to pervade all Audis. It's still handsome and well finished, but there's more black and metallic plastic and LCD readouts than ever. The best details? A thick steering wheel, a choice of brushed-aluminum or wood trim, and a more substantial look than either the rival BMW 3-Series or the Mercedes-Benz C-Class-as well as the ubiquitous starter button.

Conclusion

The 2011 Audi A4 has an aggressive sport-sedan profile and a sharp sense of style outside and a neatly arranged cabin, with maybe a little less panache than in the past.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
