An upscale, smaller car, the Audi A4 nimbly straddles the line between sporty and refined. It's easy to see why it makes Bankrate's list of best sedans for retirees. Audi enjoys a reputation for high-quality interiors, and this applies to even the smaller cars in its stable. Leather seating, automatic climate control and rain-sensing wipers are just a few of the luxury features in every A4.
"Quattro" is Audi-speak for all-wheel drive. Not only does AWD provide more stability in foul weather, but it improves handling on dry pavement as well, giving senior drivers peace of mind. Go is derived from a 211-horsepower 2-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine. As priced here, an eight-speed driver-shiftable automatic transmission ushers power to the wheels.
Consumer Reports rated the A4's front-seat comfort, ride and cabin quiet as "very good."
