Next-generation Audi A4 - codenamed as B9 - has been spied testing and this time the spy-shots are clean as a whistle. Audi has been testing the new A4 rigorously for quite a longer time as the first set of spy-shots came around a year ago. This time, the production version of A4 sedan has been clicked by our friends at World Car Fans, albeit camouflaged. However, headlamps and tail-lamp cluster - both of which flaunt LED technology - can be seen quite clearly despite the camouflage.
The Ingolstadt-based automaker has been paying special attention towards the suspension system in the 2015 Audi A4, and if some media houses to be believed then it might sit lower than the current model. And, unsurprisingly, it would be quite bigger than the ongoing model as the company already sells the A3 sedan, which is compact in size and Audi intends to maintain a safe gap between the two. Underpinning the second-gen MLB platform, it would be offered in both petrol and diesel fuel trims. Moreover, Audi is also working on two hybrid versions - petrol-electric and diesel-electric - of the car, alongside an A4 e-quattro model, which would have a combustion engine with two electric motors.
Talking about the petrol engines, Audi A4 would have 1.4L, 1.8L and 2.0L TFSI engines. In addition, a new 3.0L TFSI mill would also be offered with the range-topping gasoline variant. On the other hand, the diesel variants would be powered by the conventional 1.6L and 2.0 TDI units. Quite similar to the top-of-the-trim in petrol guise, diesel trim's high-end variant would be available with a newly-developed 3.0L TDI powertrain. All the aforementioned engines would be linked to a 6-speed manual transmission, which would transfer the power to the front wheels of the sedan. Also, an optional 9-speed nine-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive quattro setup would be on offer.
New Audi A4 is expected to make its global debut at 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show in September, while reaching India around mid 2016.
