Aspirational Luxury Car - Audi A4
The 2012 Audi A4 snags the 2012 Ideal Vehicle Award Aspirational Luxury Car nod by delivering the kind of affordable, entry-level package that drivers are looking for in a classy car. The Audi A4 comes with a 211 horsepower, 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that can be paired with the brand's famed quattro all-wheel drive for the ultimate in inclement weather grip. Transmission choices for the sedan include a six-speed manual and an eight-speed automatic. As expected, the Audi A4 features the automaker's famed interior design quality, the availability of comfort options such as heated leather seats and a voice-controlled navigation system, and it can also be tuned for sportier driving via the available Audi Drive Select package.
