Aravind Jayachandran, I'm a huge petrolhead, an automobile engineer, a massive fan of Ferrari, and loves collecting die-cast models for inspiration.
Expected to go on sale in India this year.
The latest generation of the Audi A4 was caught testing with no camouflage, courtesy of IAB Reader Sheriyar Shaikh. The car is expected to go on sale this year. Note that Audi India has not confirmed the A4 for the Auto Expo.
Following its world debut at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show, the 2016 Audi A4 test mule spotted bares little-to no camouflage on the exterior.
It measures 4.73 meters in length and 2.82 meters in wheelbase, and the Audi A4 boasts of a best-in-class drag coefficient of 0.23 Cd. Thanks to “an intelligent material mix and lightweight construction”, the overall weight has gone down by 120 kg compared to the currently sold A4.
Internationally the Audi A4 comes with four-cylinder TFSI engines (1.4 TFSI and 2.0 TFSI), four-cylinder TDI diesels (2.0 TDI), and a range-topping six-cylinder TDI diesel engines with a maximum power output of 272 hp. Power output ranges from 150 hp in the base 1.4 TFSI variant to 272 hp in the 3.0 TDI quattro Tiptronic. Going by what is already on offer, expect only the 2.0- and 3.0-liter units in the Indian-spec A4.
As for interior features, Audi has introduced the Virtual Cockpit instrument display as an optional equipment for the A4, an improved Audi MMI infotainment software with an 8.3-inch display, Bang & Olufsen Sound System with 3D sound, an Audi phone box with wireless charging, and a head-up display.
