AWD cars: Audi A4 Premium quattro

4-door, AWD cars ideal for the snow and cold
Audi A4 Premium quattro
  • Audi A4 Premium quattro

  • Consumer Reports score: 76
  • Price:$34,600
  • Mileage:
    • City - 26 mpg
    • Highway - 30 mpg

Although not the most expensive four-door on this list, the A4 is the only luxury model here. Like Subaru, Audi has a rich heritage with the AWD car that it calls "quattro." Audi gave the A4 a makeover for 2013.

Unique to our winter four-door list is turbocharging. The A4 uses a 211-horsepower 2-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine for its giddy up. As priced here, it is bolted to a driver-shiftable eight-speed automatic transmission.

Spacious, with a healthy amount of leather, the cabin reflects the A4's luxury pedigree. Standard is a multimedia interface that oversees the automatic climate control and 10-speaker audio systems.

Unfortunately, you have to opt for the $1,100 convenience package to get Bluetooth and iPod integration. That puts the A4 over the price ceiling. However, a power sunroof, eight-way power front seats, rain-sensing automatic wipers, auxiliary input jack for personal listening devices and satellite radio with 90-day free subscription are standard.
