2017 Audi A4 Closes the Gap Between Sports Car and Sedan

The 2017 Audi A4 is the perfect car for drivers who want the commanding power of a sports car, without sacrificing the comfort and luxury of a premium sedan. The Audi A4 has sort of created this overlapping category of vehicle that’s being referred to as a “sport sedan.” This is because the A4 combines sporty and luxurious into one efficiently neat package. The jump from the 2016 A4 model to the new 2017 A4 model haven’t done much to change in exterior appearance. Outside of modest revisions to the overall dimensions, a slightly more aggressive grille and front end, and more modern head and taillights (with optional LEDs) the A4 stuck to its already attractive previous design. However, by cutting weight and implementing the newest technology, Audi has effectively developed a more efficient and unique balance to create the ultimate “sport sedan.” Swift, Silent, and Sporty By substituting many of the formerly steel parts with light-weight aluminum, Audi managed to trim the weight of the previous A4 model by about 100 pounds. The result is a more efficient ride with a steadier grip for the drive. Though the 2017 Audi A4 is one of the most silent rides on [...]
