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 emphasize the width at the front and rear. The side view is defined by the distinctive muscles 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; the top-of-the-line headlights feature 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, not to mention the independent look of the S models and the A4 allroad quattro. Customers can choose from 12 paint colors, including a new terra gray option.
In the calmly styled interior of the Audi A4 the horizontal lines also convey the overall impression. In the center of the instrument panel, slightly tilted toward the driver, is the large MMI touch display, the control center 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 colors and materials. The contour/ambient lighting package adds highlights to the interior in the dark.
Perhaps the biggest news is the expansion of electrification throughout the A4 line. In European markets, Audi will offer six turbocharged engines ranging from 148 horsepower (110 kilowatts) to 342 hp (255kW), and three of those powertrain choices will feature 12-volt mild hybrid systems. That sort-of includes the new diesel-powered S4 – we say that because the higher-spec Audi actually incorporates a 48-volt mild hybrid setup with its 3.0-liter turbocharged oil burner. Thusly equipped, Audi says the S4 will reach 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.8 seconds and top out at an electronically limited 250 km/h (155 mph). As you might expect, the diesel S4 is only offered in Europe.
