By Jonny Lieberman – MotorTrend All-new for the 2017 model year, the 2021 Audi A4 is a midcycle refresh of the sports sedan. But some refreshes are milder than others. The sheet metal of the A4, and its S4 sibling, is ever so slightly tweaked. The infotainment and digital dash screens are new, too.
By Miguel Cortina – MotorTrend We are big fans of more power and less gas.
