The all-new 2018 Audi A4. The ideal balance between performance and efficiency.
Poise, elegance, precision.
The all-new A4 features sharper lines than before, with a bolder shape and a lower stance. From the shoulder line that runs the length of the car, to the detailed styling of headlights and sculptured air intakes, the latest-generation A4 has a new, distinctive presence.
Agility and comfort at every turn.
We've redesigned our engines, enhanced our transmissions and finely tuned our suspension options. The next generation, 7-speed S tronic transmission is now available for the first time for front-wheel drive. And the newly designed electromechanical steering, together with the completely new five-link front and rear suspension, improves agility and comfort on the road.
A cabin that surrounds you.
With its new wraparound design and improved headroom, the interior of the Audi A4 is designed to provide a feeling of space and safety. The air vents and 3D inlay run the width of the cabin in a long, unbroken line. The plunging centre console lends a ‘floating’ aspect to the low profile dashboard with its large, yet slimline MMI display. And small details add to the feeling of refinement, like touch switches for the climate control or the S tronic gear lever that also acts as a hand rest for the MMI system.
Bring your phone to the fore.
Imagine being able to use your smartphone applications safely while driving. The Audi Smartphone Interface, standard on the Audi A4, lets you do just that.
Satellite navigation. Music streaming. Your contact list. Now you can access apps, approved for in-car use by Android and Apple, from the MMI controls on the A4’s centre console, from the multi-function steering wheel, Audi Voice Control, or even via your smartphone’s assistant, like Siri.
Simply connect your compatible smartphone via USB* and approved apps appear in full colour on the central MMI screen.
*Android systems require the download and use of the Android Auto app.
What’s on your phone is now available on the road.
The Audi Smartphone Interface makes linking your smartphone† to your car quick, safe and easy.
With Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, you can access approved apps* from your phone safely via the Audi A4’s MMI system – both by voice or fingertip control. So you can make calls, receive and dictate messages,
navigate, select music and podcasts and much more without taking your eyes o the road.
Finding your way
You can now use Apple and Google maps* as your navigation system. Turn-by-turn directions, trac guidance and estimated arrival times are easy to see on your MMI
screen without having to touch your phone – and addresses from your email,
texts, contacts and calendar can be added as destinations. Don’t forget,
planning your journey at home reduces data usage while on the move.
Apple and Google Maps*
Your own soundtrack
You can play music stored on your phone as you drive, controlling it simply and intuitively through the interface. Streaming services are also available, including Spotify and Google Play Music.*

Google Play Music*
Keeping in touch
With Audi Smartphone Interface, any text messages you receive while driving
can be read out to you – and if you need to respond, you can do so simply by dictating your message. But not only that. You can also use approved third-party apps* like WhatsApp to keep in touch while driving.
WhatsApp, Skype and Google Hangouts*
All imagery on these pages show use of Apple CarPlay with Audi Smartphone Interface. †Smartphone Interface uses Apple CarPlay, which is available with iPhone 5 and above, or Android Auto, which is available with phones using Android 5.0 Lollipop or above. *Availability of applications diers by operating system and is dependent on approval by Apple or Google. An up-to-date list of approved apps is available on the relevant systems’ websites. Permanent availability cannot be guaranteed as this is the responsibility of Apple and Google. Use of certain apps with Smartphone Interface will be subject to signal availability of the mobile network in your location and in-car usage may increase your mobile data usage. If using regularly, a mobile phone contract including an unlimited or high amount of data is recommended.
The information you need is always changing, so the Audi Virtual Cockpit changes too. Available as an option, it replaces the traditional dashboard with a high resolution, 12.3” LCD screen, which you can customise just by pressing the ‘view’ button on the multi-function steering wheel. Choose the ‘classic’ view, with prominent speedometer and rev counter, or the ‘infotainment’ view, which brings functions such as the navigation map or media to the fore – with crisp 3D graphics and highly detailed effects.
Everything you need to know right in front of you: it’s the embodiment of Vorsprung durch Technik.
