2013 Audi A4 Priced at $33,395

2013 Audi A4

The updated 2013 Audi A4 sedan has a starting price of $33,395, including an $895 destination fee. Besides a $20 increase in destination and handling for the model year, the A4 has the same MSRP as the 2012 model. That compares favorably to the 2013 BMW 328i ($37,395), 2013 Cadillac ATS ($33,990) and 2012 Lexus IS 250 ($34,670).

The 2013 A4 received a mild refresh for the model year, including a new front and rear bumper along with new headlight, taillight, hood and front grille designs. All models now have LED daytime running lights.

The model is available with either a 211-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four-cylinder or a 330-hp, supercharged 3.0-liter V-6 on the 2013 S4. The 2013 S4 starts at $48,495, including a destination charge, and is $320 more than last year's S4. The base four-cylinder is available in three trims: Premium, Premium Plus, and Prestige.

The interior has been updated too, including reconfigured audio controls and new chrome accents on some of the switchgear. The MMI Navigation plus now has Google Maps, Google Voice search and other Google-related functionality built into the voice-recognition software. Audi connect (which comes with MMI Navigation plus) can also be had, which brings 3G internet to the car and the ability to pair up to eight Wi-Fi-enabled devices to the system. The 3G service is handled by T-Mobile. Audi connect comes with a six-month free subscription and is standard on the Prestige trim and a $3,050 option on the Premium Plus trim.

The wagon variant of the Audi A4 was discontinued and replaced with a new model, the Audi Allroad. The 2013 Audi Allroad has a starting price of $40,495, including a $895 destination fee, and is already available at dealerships.

'The S4's V-6 is new for the model year, replacing the 2012's 4.2-liter V-8.'

This is quite wrong.


I think they meant the S5

@joemt Thanks for pointing that out. We've corrected the mistake.


I hope it's more reliable as my 2011 has been a warranty nightmare. I have less than 20,000 miles and so far I've had the turbo, water pump, stereo, two front suspension parts, and battery replaced. The dealer's support has been good but compared to our 2nd car, a 2005 Acura TL with 182,000 miles the A4 so far has had way more problems. We love the look but if given the chance wouldn't buy again.

I know it doesn't help much but, your experience is not common. As an Audi owner for 26 years, I can say that I have never bought a lemmon Audi. As an Audi salesman for 13 years, I can say that I've never sold one either. That doesn't mean it doesn't happen to every manufacturer now and then. I just don't want you to get turned off from one experience. Most cars are well-made these days. Technology has helped everyone. Name brands that were historically very bad have improved very much. I will not mention any names.

Don't throw out the baby with the bath water, okay?


I've had my 2012 A4 for almost a year and have had no issues of any kind. It runs flawlessly.
