Audi July 2012 Sales up 28%
A4 and Q5 sales continue to dominate Audi sales in the US

2012 Audi A4 - $32,500 to start with an at best 25 mpgUS combined from its direct injected and turbo charged 2.0L mill.
The interior of all Audi A4 models offers convenience for drivers and passengers. Craftsmanship is evident in the leather seating surfaces, including the newly available fine Nappa leather covered door armrests and in other materials such as brushed aluminum or available wood inlays. To add to the sport feel, Audi offers available sport contoured front seats with adjustable thigh support.
To put the Audi A4s size in perspective, it is about the same size as the B-Segment Chevrolet Sonic with a passenger/cargo volume of just 91/12 cu. ft. respectively.
