The Audi A4 vs. the Toyota Camry near Savannah


We're Putting the Outstanding Audi A4 to the Test

Against the well-known Toyota Camry to prove that luxury driving is more than just nice leather & fancy tires. The Audi brand has a reputation for excellence on the track, excellence on the road, and excellence in design and craftsmanship. Audi believes in thrilling, gripping performance and leading, not following, the curve when it comes to technology. On this page, we're comparing the Audi A4 with the Toyota Camry

Why Should You Buy a Luxury Sedan Over Something More Basic Like the Toyota Camry?

The A4 is for everyone, but as you well know, not just anyone can drive one. When it comes to the vehicle you'll be driving day in and day out, why wouldn't you treat yourself to something special, something rewarding, and yet, still practical and useful? Driving is a fixture of our modern reality, and if you're going to spend time behind the wheel or stuck in traffic, it might as well be on bolstered, leather-upholstered seats with a premium sound system to keep you company. Buying a luxury sedan is more than just nice leathers and a sweet spec sheet, however-when you buy something as elegant and powerful as the Audi A4, you start to look forward to the little drives, to your morning commute, to road trips, even. There's a certain pride of ownership that comes with a luxury sedan, a satisfaction behind the wheel that cant' be found in a hum-drum sedan.

There's nothing arrogant about a luxury vehicle, especially not something as sophisticated and subtle as the A4, and it's important to acknowledge your own success, treating yourself-just sometimes-as well as you treat everyone else. In a luxury sedan, you'll find premium materials, cutting-edge technology, rewarding performance, superior craftsmanship, and sophisticated design; we're not saying you can't find one or some of those things in an average sedan like the Toyota Camry, but good luck finding them all in perfect balance and harmony, as they are in the A4 and throughout the entire Audi lineup. It's why discerning drivers from Hardeeville, Hilton Head Island, Bluffton, SC, Savannah & Garden City, GA choose Audi once and then choose Audi for life.

2018 Audi A4 vs. 2018 Toyota Camry:

Some folks might ask why we're taking the time to compare a luxury performance sedan like the 2018 Audi A4 to a standard full-size sedan like the 2018 Toyota Camry-are people shopping for an Audi A4 really also considering the Toyota Camry, after all? The answer is Yes!. We're not here to knock the Toyota Camry-just to tell you how the Audi A4 does it better and why it's still a better option than the well-regarded and successful Toyota Camry. We focused this comparison on the 2018 Camry's top-tier trim, the XSE V6 in order to keep things comparable and competitive. So, without further ado, onto the breakdown:

  • Power, Efficiency, & Performance:
    • No one likes driving an underpowered car, feeling it lag as you press on the accelerator, slowly climb up to speed, and then put along. In the 2018 Audi A4, you won't ever feel like that thanks to an available 252-horsepower 2.0-liter TFSI® inline-four, which also sees 273 pound-feet of torque, making it not just powerful but responsive and quick off the line. This engine is paired to a S tronic® 7-speed with a quattro® all-wheel drive (AWD) setup, and all together it sees 24/34/27 mpg city/highway/combined. Power and efficiency in perfect harmony, with an AWD system to boot. The Camry can't say the same..
    • The 2018 Toyota Camry, in its highest trim level, offers a 301-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 that metes out just 267 pound-feet of torque. This gets paired to an 8-speed automatic with a strictly front-wheel drive configuration, the culmination of which is 22/32/26 mpg city/highway/combined. Would you trade that much efficiency for a few more horses and a less satisfying pound-foot ratio?
  • Superior Traction: This one might go without saying, but Audi is known world-wide for its incredible quattro® all-wheel drive (AWD) system, which delivers power to the wheels that can best use it, resulting in superior traction, scrupulous performance, and an incredible sense of confidence behind the wheel. The 2018 Audi A4 offers you the quattro® system, however, you won't find an AWD system anywhere to be seen in the 2018 Toyota Camry.
  • Check Out These Warranties: Toyota likes to brag about dependability, and we're not saying it's unreliable, we're just saying that that 2018 Audi A4 comes with a 48-Month/50,000-Mile Basic Warranty, whereas the 2018 Toyota Camry comes with a 36-Month/36,000-Mile Basic Warranty; we're also saying that the 2018 Audi A4 offers 144 Months of Corrosion Perforation protection, while the 2017 Toyota Camry only offers 60 Months; and we're also saying that the 2018 Audi A4 will give you 48 Months of 24/7 Roadside Assistance protection, but the 2018 Toyota Camry will only offer you 24 Months. What you do with that information, however, is up to you!
