Pros
Good turbo-4 engine
Sharp handling
Standard automatic emergency braking
Great tech
Crisp styling...

Cons

Top trims are pricey

The efficient Ultra trim is gone, but its engine is now standard on all trims.The manual transmission is no longer available.Revised trim level names.Minor adjustments to feature availability.The 2019 Audi A4 doesn't change much and remains at the top of its game. But in typical fashion, there's a challenger on the horizon, and it's a familiar foe: the BMW 3 Series, which gets a thorough overhaul this year.

Pros
Cabin looks cool and is impeccably constructed
Advanced and easy-to-use safety and technology features
Back seat is spacious enough for adults
Turbocharged engine provides quick acceleration in the A4 45 TFSI

Cons
Some initial hesitation from transmission when accelerating
Lack of feedback from steering limits driver involvement
