Audi Is Preparing An Updated Version Of Its A4
An updated version of one of the most popular Audi models, the A4 sedan, has been shot by spies when passing road tests. Until the end of 2018 the new car should go on sale.
Despite the fact that popularity of sedans in Europe drops and buyers increasingly choose SUVs, Audi A4 sales remain at a high level. The new version of the model can only strengthen consumer interest.
On the eve of the debut of the refreshed A4, and this may happen at the Paris Motor Show this year, spy photos show the rival of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class and BMW 3-Series will be not much changed externally, judging by a little camouflage. New front and rear bumpers, as well as new headlights are expected.
More innovations are in the technical part. First of all, we are talking about 48-volt mild-hybrid technology. Its integration does not require large costs for reengineering.
Probably Audi will abandon the current 1.4-liter four-cylinder turbo engine in favor of a more powerful 1.5-liter VW Group’s unit. It is also expected to increase power and fuel efficiency on the 2.0-liter petrol and 3.0-liter diesel engines.
The car manufacturer will also update the rest of the family models: a wagon, the A4 Allroad and hot S4 and RS4.
