2011 Audi A4 Quattro Sedan Sporty, Stylish and Sexy - Just Like You>

A lot of women, whether single or married with kids, just feel more comfortable behind the wheel of a smaller sports sedan than an SUV, crossover or minivan. Maybe it’s the ease of zipping in and out of traffic, the added simplicity of parallel parking, the increased fuel economy…or all the above!

If you’re among this sensible group, the 2011 Audi A4 Quattro Sedan certainly deserves a look. It’s super sporty and fun to drive, and Audi has clearly emerged in recent years as a frontrunner among the German and Japanese luxury car brands. In fact, the small luxury vehicle segment is among the most highly contested in the entire auto industry. The BMW 3 Series, Mercedes-Benz C Class and Lexus IS all compete in this segment along with the Audi A4.

The A4 is Audi’s best-selling vehicle in the U.S. thanks to its best-in-class size and fuel efficiency. Under the hood is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder with a turbocharger that puts 211 horsepower at your service. So you’ll be able to make up for lost time should you be running late for a spa treatment, client meeting or parent-teacher conference. Better yet, this true sports sedan gives you 21 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway, even with Quattro all-wheel-drive.

The all-wheel-drive system makes the A4 perfect for any climate and easier to drive in a spirited manner. After all, men aren’t the only ones who like to hug the curves and corners. The Quattro Sedan’s all-wheel drive system is a safety advantage, too, especially when the weather goes south. And that’s one of the reasons the Audi A4 is an IIHS Top Safety Pick. This elegant sedan received top scores in front, side, and rear crash protection. It also features electronic stability control, another requirement for getting a top honor from IIHS.

Audi does as nice a job as any of its A4 class competitors in terms of interior design and comfort. Passengers are treated to top-notch materials everywhere you look and touch. And at 185 inches in overall length, the A4 is the largest sedan in its class. That also means a more spacious interior with 35.2 inches of legroom. Trunk space, however, is on the smaller side, providing about 12 cubic feet for your luggage, mall purchases, yoga mat, and sporting gear.

When it comes to technology, the A4 offers just about everything — navigation, MP3 player, USB interface, Bluetooth connectivity, and heated seats. But take note, most of these tech features are options that will boost the purchase price. Overall, the A4 is a terrific driver’s car with outstanding looks and terrific safety.
