Audi A4 interior review

The Audi A4 is a five-seater four-door sedan. The seats at the front for longer rides are comfortable and helpful. The back seats are accommodating, with both rows giving bigger passengers generous head-and legroom. Standard leather upholstery, but accessible are heated seats. Thanks to the mixture of high quality fabrics and minimalist design, the interior of the A4 is one of the finest in its class. At greater speeds, the cabin stays quiet.

Standard features in the 2015 Audi A4 include a power sunroof, a 10-speaker audio system, an iPod connector, an auxiliary audio input, Bluetooth phone connectivity, an SD card slot, satellite radio and Audi's MMI infotainment system, which has a central control knob and a 6.5-inch color screen. The new standard for 2015 is the automatic three-zone climatic control.

Available features include adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring, a rearview camera, rear parking sensors, Bluetooth audio streaming, HD Radio, a 14-speaker Bang & Olufsen audio system and Audi's MMI navigation system with Audi Connect, which provides real-time traffic information and wireless Internet access through a cellular data connection. For the first six months, Audi Connect is free, and you will then have to subscribe.

Some critics believe the MMI infotainment scheme is not so simple to use as schemes in BMW and Mercedes-Benz cars to make it hard to adjust the audio and climate settings. Some claim, however, that MMI is user friendly, particularly as it was streamlined by its checks in 2013.
