 August 17, 2016 | HERNDON, Virginia -- Offering a competitive segment-leading EPA-estimated 31-mpg combined fuel economy rating, the 2017 Audi A4 ultra is an efficient entry-level luxury sedan with uncompromising design, technology and driving dynamics.

The A4 ultra leverages a newly revised combustion method and an even more efficient variant of the 2.0-liter TFSI® engine to achieve EPA-estimated ratings of 27 mpg city and 37 mpg highway. No other luxury sedan in its competitive segment offers higher EPA-estimated city or highway mileage.

The 2.0T engine is mated to a seven-speed S tronic® dual clutch transmission, which can deliver 190 hp and 236 lb-ft of torque and sprints from 0-60 mph in 7.1 seconds. To help increase engine efficiency, the A4 ultra’s 2.0T engine utilizes a combustion method with shorter compression and longer-expansion phases. The compression ratio was increased from 9.6:1 to 11.7:1, further improving the engine’s efficiency and allowing for greater power and torque delivery.
