no need to count touch-ups to make the difference between this new version of the Audi A4 and the previous one. Even without the pack “S Line”, the A4 has traded his look of wise family sedan against curves and more sports. The rear shield, which uses two exhaust outlets, oversized, participates to the strengthening of the dynamic side. The ribs that decorate the sides are in the same spirit. About the front, the grille is wider and flatter. The lines are more stretched evoke the Audi A5. The new optics, they remind us of the city A1.

Despite these elements which refer to other models in the range, the A4 keeps its own personality and the result is, in our opinion, quite successful. With its new system MMI, the Audi A4 wants to provide a user experience similar to that of a contemporary smartphone. The TFT display screen high-resolution measuring 10.1 inch. In addition to the recognition of the dangers and signs online, and service “on street parking”, of the information on the signal lights are now available.

network with the urban infrastructure, the vehicle receives information from the central computer of the traffic lights via a server, so that the driver can adjust his / her speed until the green light next. The instrument displays just one look recommended after the analysis of these data, but also the time remaining until the next green light when the driver patient at a red light. The digital key “Audi connect” option allows the owner to lock/unlock the vehicle and start the engine using an Android smartphone compatible.

If you’re lost in the middle of all these new technologies, it is good to know that the German manufacturer offers a test phase of one month to try out a service before you commit. The experience can then be extended in the course of the road: a month, a year or permanently. At its launch, the Audi A4 will leave the choice of six turbocharged engines. Their power ranges from 150 hp (A4 35 TFSI) to 347 hp (S4 TDI). Subsequently, the two diesel groups will complete the range: the 30 TDI and the 35 TDI, which will develop respectively 136 hp and 163 hp.

Depending on the version chosen, we will provide a manual gearbox, S Tronic seven-speed gearbox or Tiptronic eight-speed, opt for a transmission to the front wheels or in full, for the benefit of a mild hybrid or not. In addition to the suspension of “standard”, two versions of adaptive are available: the comfort suspension with controlled damping, which reduces the body height by 10 millimetres, and the sport suspension with or without controlled damping, lowering the vehicle of 23 millimeters.

Three versions of the Audi A4 stand out from the pack, starting with the”edition one” proposed on the occasion of the launch. It is available in wagon or sedan with three engine choices: the 2.0 TFSI with 245 horsepower, the 2.0 TDI of 190 hp and the 3.0 TDI of 231 hp. The exterior design is inspired by the pack “S Line”, supplemented by some elements such as the “black pack”. Regarding the interior, the guests will be able to choose between the packs, “design selection” and “S Line”.

Available only as a station wagon, the A4 Allroad Quattro plays the baroudeuses with its underbody protection, the borders of the passages of the wheels, as well as its flat tires high. Adorned with 35 millimetres, this version features a suspension “all-terrain” option, and also has a mode of conduct “all-terrain” for the trips off the bitumen.

Finally, the model sports S4 has also been completely revised. If the former version, which was rather in the discretion, it asserts high and strong its temperament and muscular. With its aerodynamic appendages, its chrome elements, and its honeycomb grille, it could easily be confused with a radical version RS. Unfortunately, this sports personality exacerbated cache something to compensate. If on other markets, the S4 retains its V6 biturbo petrol, the Europe, and the reduction of CO2 will have to be content with the diesel engine borrowed from the SUV SQ5.

The Audi A4 and S4 are already available for order, and will arrive in dealerships in the fall of 2019. Regarding the fares, the entry-level 35 TFSI starts at 35,900 euros, when the sporty S4 application 62 600 euros minimum.
