The A4 represents the core of the brand – after four years of development, Audi has made the successful midsize model even tauter and sportier. Its exterior is integrated into the brand’s new design language; the large MMI touch display offers the kind of operating experience customers will be familiar with from their smartphone. Many engine options now come with mild-hybrid systems (MHEV) – efficiency and comfort benefit from this broad-based electrification. This also applies to the Audi S4 TDI, with a V6 TDI under the bonnet for the first time, a 48-volt main electrical system and an electric powered compressor (EPC), which lends its beefy acceleration even more spontaneity. This combination of power, torque and efficiency makes it unique in the segment.
Sporty look: the exterior design ?
The midsize model looks even more dynamic and sophisticated thanks to the sportier design highlights. The Singleframe grille is now broader and flatter; horizontal lines emphasise the width at the front and rear and the side view is defined by distinctive muscular styling above the fenders and the lower set shoulder line in between. They form strong contours above the wheels and make the quattro genes outwardly visible. ?
LED headlights now come standard in the Audi A4, with the
top-of-the-line headlights featuring the Matrix LED technology with fully
automatic high beam. The equipment line concept is equally new: basic, advanced
and S line are now available for the exterior, as well as the independent look
of the S models and the A4 allroad quattro. Customers can choose from 12 paint
colours, including a new terra grey option.
In the newly styled interior of the Audi A4 the horizontal lines also convey the overall impression of calm. In the centre of the instrument panel, slightly tilted toward the driver, is the large MMI touch display, the control centre for the new operating system. The new interior packages: design selection and S line interior can be combined freely with the exterior lines and come with numerous colours and materials, while the contour/ambient lighting package adds highlights to the interior in the dark.
With its new MMI system the highly connected Audi A4 offers a user experience similar to a contemporary smartphone. An MMI touch display with acoustic feedback replaces the functions of the previous rotary/pushbut
