How It Drives

Audi is a manufacturer of luxury automobiles, so it should come as no surprise that the 2010 A4 drives and handles well. A lot of this has to do with the refined suspension that is featured in the vehicle, as well as the offering of frontwheel drive as a standard feature. Another key in the A4s drive and handling is a special feature that redistributes the weight of the vehicle so that it has a center of gravity that is more in the back than it is in the front. This improves vehicle handling and balance due to a more even distribution of weight between the front and the back axles compared to previous A4 models.
