Audi A5 vs A4 Lineup

On top of delivering an exciting drive, this powertrain will also provide with great fuel economy. It can get up to an EPA-estimated 23 MPG city and 34 MPG highway[i].

This engine comes standard on every trim level of the Audi A5 and is available on the Audi A4. However, the Audi A4 also gives you some options.

The Audi A4 is only available in two styles. The first is a traditional luxury sedan. The second is the Audi A4 allroad®. This crossover looks like a station wagon with a rugged side. Its designed to hold lots of cargo and take on trails as easily as city streets.
