All-new Audi A4 Avant: first live shots

Snapshot: Here is a better look at Audi’s brand new A4 Avant (B9) with its fresh and sharpened up design.

Audi took the wraps off the new A4 Sedan and Avant last month, but they only showed some digital images and videos, without releasing any real live shots of the cars. Now, they have published some actual pics with the more practical wagon version which surprisingly is 1 mm shorter than the sedan. It’s also 7 mm taller while the width has remained the same. Unsurprisingly, the shape of the body makes the Avant less aerodynamic than its Sedan sibling as the Cd of the wagon stands at 0.26 whereas the sedan has a 0.23 drag coefficient.

Set to be offered in a rich array of 15 body colors, the A4 Avant seen here wears a Tango Red hue which suits the premium compact wagon very well in our humble opinion. It should be mentioned all the Avant versions will have black roof rails as standard along with a roof-mounted rear spoiler that you don’t get on the Sedan.

This B9 generation is larger compared to the outgoing B8 model but even so Audi’s engineers have managed to shave off as much as 120 kg from the car’s weight. For example, the Avant comes with an aluminum-made trunk while those nodes in the D pillar’s upper ends are also made from the same lightweight yet sturdy metal.

Those who buy the A4 Avant are mostly interested in the capacity of the trunk and will be happy to hear it has grown by 15 liters to 505 liters compared to the old model. If this isn’t enough and you need to carry more voluminous cargo, the rear bench - which has a 40:20:40 split - can be folded to boost capacity to no less than 1,510 liters which should suffice in most cases.

Audi will start selling the new A4 family later this year in Europe and will bring it to India sometime next year.
