Audi had only launched the petrol variant of the new A4 in India, which is priced between INR 38.1 Lakhs and INR 41.20 Lakhs. It is powered by a 1.4-litre TFSI petrol engine that develops 110 kW (150 PS/147.45 hp) and 250 Nm of torque, paired with a 7-speed S-Tronic gearbox as standard. Its claimed fuel efficiency of 17.85 km/l.

The 35 TDI variant packs the familiar 2.0L four-cylinder turbodiesel engine that produces 140 kW (190 PS) and 400 Nm of torque in the European specification, which is also paired with a 7-speed S-tronic gearbox as standard. Expect the average fuel mileage to increase compared to its predecessor (17.11 km/l), thanks to weight savings brought by the new MLB Evo platform.
