It wears an appealing Tango Red paint and judging by the badging on the back it has a 2.0 TFSI four-cylinder turbocharged gasoline engine teamed up with a quattro all-wheel drive system and a dual clutch seven-speed S tronic gearbox. Audi will be offering this engine with 190 bhp and 320 Nm along with a beefier version rated at 252 bhp and 370 Nm.
Other motors set to be offered in the new A4 include an entry-level 1.4 TFSI with 150 bhp and 250 Nm along with a more efficient 2.0 TDI developing 150 bhp, 320 Nm and 190 bhp, 400 Nm while the beefier 3.0 TDI has 218 bhp, 400 Nm and 272 bhp, 600 Nm.
As you would expect to see from a car featured in a promotional clip, this particular A4 Sedan (B9 generation) has all the bells and whistles as it has been equipped with the fancy 12.3-inch customizable digital instrument cluster and also has that expensive optional Bang & Olufsen sound system. LED headlights are also part of the package along with leather-wrapped S line seats, a granite gray trim on the dashboard and illuminated side sills featuring the “S” logo.
While the exterior design seems overly familiar, let’s not forget the new A4 is bigger than the model it replaces as it is now 25 mm longer, 16 mm wider and has a 12 mm stretched wheelbase. Depending on configuration, the compact premium sedan from Ingolstadt has lost up to 120 kg and it’s now more practical compared to its predecessor since trunk capacity is up by 15 liters to 505 liters with the rear seats in position and if you fold them down you get 1,510 liters.
Audi will show off the A4 Sedan and its more practical Avant sibling next month at the Frankfurt Motor Show, with sales in Europe scheduled to commence this fall while India will get the cars sometime next year.
