2004 Audi A4 Owners Manual – The Audi A4 shows a range of great sports sedans. They produce clean managing, a company trip, and properly-operated suspensions which make for an accurate, high-top quality driving a car practical experience. The A4 seems like it’s on side rails close to fast sweepers, especially when designed with Audi’s Quattro all-wheel-drive system, one of the world’s very best. Attractively done decorations exhibit high quality and ergonomic superiority.
Performance and drivability change by model. The turbocharged four-cylinder engine which comes on 1.8T models provides exceptional performance when combined with a guidebook gearbox and it’s nicely valued, but the 1.8-liter engine doesn’t operate as efficiently with the accessible auto transmission. The V6 engine which comes on 3.0 models is beautifully sleek and robust, and yes it works well when associated with the non-obligatory automated. The V8-operated S4 provides incredible performance and critical lovers like it, but its suspensions could be way too company for almost all car owners.
The A4 was entirely newly designed for 2002. Very last year, the Cabriolet (convertible) and Avant (wagon) models joined up with the selection. For 2004, Audi furthermore increases the A4 loved ones with the V8-operated S4, also Audi’s, initial Cabriolet Quattro, obtainable in each A4 3.0 and S4 clip, incorporating high performance with top rated-straight down exhilaration.
A 1.8-liter turbocharged four-cylinder runs A4 1.8T models. The A4 1.8T sedan ($25,250) arrives every day with towel covers, a 5-pace handbook gearbox, and front-wheel drive. Normal features incorporate twin-sector environment management and a 150-watt, 10-lecturer stereo system with 6-Disc in-dash changer. The 1.8T is available too with front-wheel drive and a Constantly Varied Transmission, a strapless auto transmission ($26,400). The 1.8T Quattro is provided with a six-speed guide ($27,450) or a several-pace Tiptronic intelligent ($28,500). The A4 1.8T Avant Quattro includes the six-speed guidebook ($28,450) or the Tiptronic smart ($29,500). The Avant contributes several-way strength car seats with changeable lumbar assistance to the sedan’s checklist of conventional devices. A4 1.8T Cabriolet ($35,250) reveals the wagon’s potential chairs and is accessible just with the CVT and front-wheel drive. Also, it includes a stronger 180-watt stereo system.
The A4 3.0 features a 3.0-liter V6. The A4 3.0 entrance-drive sedan ($31,150) will regularly come with the CVT, 12-way strength driver’s seating, natural leather covers, an upgraded stereo system, motorist details show, and also other high end and clip products, as well as the V6 engine. Quattro sedans put a 12-way potential passenger’s seating and are supplied with a selection of six-speed handbook ($32,940) or Tiptronic ($33,990). The A4 3.0 Avant arrives directly with Quattro, along with the six-speed guide ($33,940) or Tiptronic ($34,990). The A4 3.0 Cabriolet is supplied with both the CVT and front-wheel drive ($41,800), or Quattro and Tiptronic ($43,550).
The 2004 Audi A4 is a good looking car, formed in the unique Bauhaus fashion recognized by the bigger A6. The A4 will take style cues from equally the TT Roadster and the A6, such as its high beltline, notable stainless-cut grille, and notched in flush taillights. Front lights, bumpers, and front door takes care of are incorporated into the body. Some adornments detract from the A4’s standard design, where there is tiny stainless. On sedans, antennae for the stereo, telematics and menu solutions are inserted into the rear cup.
The Avant is sporty seeking wagon with a steeply sloped rear hatch out that sacrifices some freight place for an original, up-market account. General, the Avant is the very same span as the sedan. Its rear hatch out can wide open at two various levels, to permit more clearance for bigger managers. Additionally, it features a twin-launching freight surface, a rakish roof structure-fitted antenna, and different windows clip: dark on 1.8T brushed aluminum on 3.0 and S4.
The interior design of the Audi A4 is impressive and practical, as it is in Audi’s other sedans, instead of purposefully snazzy in the style of the TT. Supplies appear and feel better than others in numerous other cars with this price range, and the cut suits thoroughly. The cabin beltline is trimmed with aluminum in the 1.8T and genuine hardwood in the 3.0. The gentle-shaded timber is used to great result. It’s an attractive interior. The interior of the S4 is excellent. Our chairs have been cut in a gray that had been virtually white colored, with dark (or almost black) cut, and darkish-grey birch cut contributes variation.
The front side car seats accommodate support people the half a dozen ft. Several-Inches range. The chairs are cozy and helpful in almost all situations. We believed far more area bolstering might have been a noticeable difference, even though, to keep motorist and traveler ultimately when cornering. Natural leather covers are seen on the 1.8T sedan and Avant as a component of a High-quality Package ($2000) that involves an energy moonroof, potential chairs, HomeLink transmitter and vehicle driver information and facts screen. A solid, grippy, leather-based-protected controls and move handle are standard. The S4 comes with with 12-way strength Recaro sports chairs that are an organization, encouraging, and cozy. The S4’s leather-based-twisted, about three-spoke sports controls feature change paddles on Tiptronic models; a several-spoke, tire with multiple-operate handles is optionally available ($150).
The driver’s see is virtually clear in just about every path. The modest, shaped aspect decorative mirrors are elegant and sleek, but from the driver’s seating they provide a constrained watching range. We will give up a try to find larger insurance coverage.
Some of the changes could be larger sized. Nevertheless, all those tweaked, which include stereo system amount, are big enough. Following a little bit of familiarization, all things in the A4 is simple to find with little diversion. The radial sunroof swap is useful; change it a quarter, one-half or complete transform, and the roof structure starts up a related length. With the High-quality Package for 3.0 models ($1,525-$2,300), almost all heat, venting and stereo system alterations can be done employing switches on the controls center.
