2017 Audi A4 First Drive


The arrival of an all-new Audi A4 is no small occasion. It's the profit powerhouse, the "center of gravity" for Audi of America, as product manager Filip Brabec puts it. Cars like the A4 represent the biggest slice of the luxury-car market in the U.S., and the most competitive. 

The lineup in the compact to mid-size class practically oozes credibility, aggregating everything from the perennial best-selling BMW 3-Series and Mercedes-Benz C-Class, to the arrivistes, the Cadillac ATS and Infiniti Q50, not to mention the Jaguar XE and Alfa Romeo Giulia waiting in the wings.

To stay in that "perennial" class, and to push higher a run of 12 million A4s sold worldwide, the ninth-generation ("B9") A4 has to stretch in new and more inventive ways. It does so, but not in the obvious directions.

The new A4 is arguably less distinctive to look at than previous models. Its aero-clean shape draws on elements from its recent concept cars and the 2017 Q7 SUV, but the brightest touches have been toned down. There are more sharply creased lines at the grille, which juts out just below its four-ring emblem, for a three-dimensional effect. Elsewhere, the A4 looks very much like the current model--with lots of front-end overhang, a bullet-smooth front end, and relatively large glass areas. On the new car, the decklid sits higher, as does the nose; the rear quarter view is its best, where the appealingly curved fenders and tumblehome (the inward curve of the cabin toward the roofline). It's a handsome car, but the proportions and details may have reached their ultimate iteration here.

Inside the cabin, there's a spare look that has the effect--intended or not--of fondly recalling the pre-A4 era. There's a horizontal theme that suggests the Audi 4000's spartan looks: it brings the cowl lower and opens up the field of vision over the dash. The stitching that runs down the seats is a subtle nod to a classic German pattern from the Eighties, too.

Audi's forte in the past generation of cars has been in interior detailing, and the new A4 is more composed and better-integrated than the prior car. The steering-wheel hub is smaller, but the Audi ringed logo is larger, leaving more room for thumb controls on the dished spokes. A strip of vents divides the dash horizontally, but the wide middle swath is there for continuity--it's not a functioning air vent.  A big TFT screen is fixed on the dash, a little more deeply integrated than before. And on our test car, a rich-looking open-pore wood was paired with caramel-colored seats and a black cloth headliner--it's a handsome combination that Audi does particularly well.

TV Show "Top Gear" on BBC Puts Audi to the Test

"There's an almost Olympian strength to the four interlocking rings on the Audi badge, and it's in no way misleading. Whether you love the stoic Germanic styling of these cars or not, you can be in no doubt you're buying a level of solidity that even the Japanese can't beat. But they're pricey and not dynamically flawless." -Top Gear, BBC

Do You Remember "The Fox"?

The Fox by Audi


by Petrolicious Productions / 25 Jan 2013

Though it was voted "Car of the Year" by three journals when it came out, the now-rare Audi Fox seems to have fallen through the cracks among vintage car enthusiasts-it definitely isn't the most popular of Audi models. The Fox was built in-house in Germany and debuted as the Audi 80 in Europe in 1972, where it received critical acclaim. When it came to Australia and the United States in 1973, it was marketed as the Audi Fox.

The Audi Fox was significant, because it helped revive Volkswagen, which had been in a financial down swing since the end of the 1960s. The Audi 80/Fox helped set the stage for a range of successful front-wheel drive, water-cooled cars like the Golf, Jetta, Passat/Dasher and Scirocco.

During the 1970s, art director/designer Helmut Krone (1925-1996) was behind the look of the Audi brand (as well as the Volkswagen "Think Small" advertising campaign). For the Audi Fox advertising campaign featured below, Krone created a very smart, fun, and beautifully designed campaign for Audi, which highlights all of the positive aspects of this little car. It's too bad the European markets, who knew this car as the Audi 80, missed out on this fun campaign.
