2014 Audi A4 from North America
Not quite as fun to drive as Mercedes or BMW, but a smooth and reliable ride nonetheless
The automatic transmission is a bit jerky, especially at higher speeds.
The trunk latching mechanism needed replacement after 8 months.
The car is a bit underpowered and overweight, and feels heavy when accelerating at high speeds.
The interior is plush and luxurious; it is a bit softer and more luxuriant than the Mercedes C-Class I had before getting this car, but not quite as flashy and full of bells and whistles as the BMW 3 or 4 series. It drives more "Japanese" than "German", i.e. like most Japanese luxury cars, it is a heavy car that is a bit slow to accelerate and feels a bit overweight and underpowered. It handles turns and corners well, especially with the "sport" setting selected.
The interior is roomier and there is more trunk space than the C-Class or the 3/4 Series. It contains a few standard features (e.g. rear view camera, seat warmers) that are optional on the C-Class or the 3/4 Series.
Fuel economy is also slightly better than the other German cars in its class... mine gets around 20 MPG in the city and 28 MPG on the highway.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
