What's New for the 2018 Audi A4?

After last year's updated release of the Audi A4, there wasn't much tweaking that needed to be done. Yet, automakers at Audi continue to pack loads of value into this four-door sedan. The 2018 Audi A4 now has heated front seats as standard equipment, even on the base model. The base model also gets S Line exterior modifications as standard features. They're subtle, but you can spot the modified bumpers, slatted and diamond-look air inlets, and spoiler. The mid-level Premium Plus model gains some standard safety features. Audi Side Assist and Pre-Sense utilize the onboard cameras and sensors to offer some added driver-assisted safety functions. The Prestige model adds Lane Assist and Adaptive Cruise Control to the previously mentioned features, and the top tier model also gains some style modifications this year. The Prestige A4 is now equipped with automatic high beams, headlights that can detect traffic signs such as speed limit notifications, and the information is automatically displayed on the virtual cockpit interface.
