No Diesel Required: 2017 Audi A4 2.0T Ultra Does 37 MPG Highway

2017 Audi A4 Ultra

With front-wheel drive, a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, and a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, the all-new 2017 Audi A4 Ultra’s EPA highway fuel economy figure is 37 miles per gallon.

Audi says, “No other luxury sedan in its competitive segment offers higher EPA-estimated city or highway mileage” than the new fuel-sipping A4, which the Environmental Protection Agency rates at 27 mpg in the city and 31 mpg combined.

The EPA scores the rear-wheel-drive BMW at 32 mpg city and 42 highway and the 330e at a combined 72 mpge equivalent. Audi presumably excluded these non-entry-level, uniquely powered models from the “competitive segment” definition.

The A4 Ultra, which improves upon the standard front-wheel-drive 2017 Audi A4’s 25/33 mpg ratings, is reduced to 190 horsepower and 236 lbs-ft of torque from the usual A4’s 252 horsepower and 273 lbs-ft.

Non-diesel rivals such as the BMW 320i, Mercedes-Benz C300, and Lexus IS200t have combined EPA fuel economy ratings of 28, 28, and 26 miles per gallon, respectively. Even the Audi A4’s little A3 brother maxed out at a combined 27 mpg in MY2016.

Including delivery fees, pricing for the 2017 Audi A4 Ultra begins at $35,850 in Premium guise — a $2,400 savings compared with the typical front-wheel-drive A4 2.0T — and $39,650 for the Premium Plus.

Audi also uses the Ultra badge on a particularly high-mileage version of the Audi A3 e-tron.
