The Audi Q4 E-tron is back for its second year as the brand’s least-expensive electric crossover model. Though it splits the difference size-wise between the Q3 and Q5 models, the Q4 E-tron appeals to a different audience altogether with its all-battery powertrain.
What’s New/Key Changes From Last Year
For 2023, the Q4 E-Tron’s only change is the addition of standard Audi Connect security and assistance functionality.
The Q4 E-tron comes in a single trim powered by dual electric motors for all-wheel traction.
Among the Q4 E-tron’s standard features are 19-inch wheels, LED headlights/taillights, a power tailgate, passive keyless entry, heated front seats with driver’s power adjustments, three-zone A/C, leather upholstery, a panoramic roof, and heated steering wheel. Infotainment functions are handled through a 10.1-inch touchscreen with smartphone interface, satellite radio, and a 10.25-inch digital driver display.
The Q4 E-tron’s safety suite comprises forward collision mitigation, pedestrian detection, front and rear parking sensors, blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and lane departure warning.
A premium package adds auto-dimming/power-folding side mirrors, power passenger seat, an auto-dimming interior mirror, sport front seats, navigation, traffic sign recognition, wireless phone charging and an integrated garage door opener.
The tech package builds on the premium pack with a heated windshield, matrix LED headlights with washers, automatic high beams, adaptive cruise control, traffic jam assist, park assist, and an upgraded stereo. You can also add the tech pack’s driver assist features on their own in the advanced driver assistance package.
Audi’s energy consumption estimates are 2.4/2.7 Le/100 km (city/highway), with a promised 380 km of driving range.
With the Q4 E-tron, Audi goes up against the Tesla Model Y, Ford Mustang Mach-E, Cadillac Lyriq, Genesis GV60, Mercedes-Benz EQB, and Volvo XC40 Recharge.
