It adds to standard equipment including leather trim, rear parking sensors, an electrically adjustable driver’s seat and automatic headlights and wipers.

The A4 1.8T Sport Edition is priced $5500 higher than the standard A4 1.8T, at $59,900, yet adding the above equipment to the standard car would usually cost close to $10K.

The Sport Edition is alternately available in A4 2.0 TDI guise for $62,390, while the A5 Sport Edition line-up includes the $70,700 2.0 TFSI and $72,500 2.0 TDI coupe and Sportback, and the $83,440 2.0 TFSI and $85,840 2.0 TDI cabriolet.

Equipped with the 1.8 TFSI engine, the A4 musters 125kW of power and 320Nm of torque, and with a continuously variable transmission (CVT) claims 0-100km/h in 8.3 seconds. For the extra $2400 the A4 2.0 TDI gets 130kW and 380Nm, keeps the CVT, and reduces the 0-100km/h sprint to a claimed 7.9 seconds.
