Audi is all set to launch the facelifted version of the A4 long wheelbase model in the Chinese market and spy shots of the vehicle have emerged on blogs and news websites of the Middle Kingdom.
The Audi A4L is made by the FAW-Volkswagen joint venture. The BMW 3 Series long wheelbase was introduced weeks ago at the Beijing Auto Show using the F30 model and this is like a reflex action from camp Audi.
The A4 has been stretched by 110mm along its wheelbase to provide more space to the rear passengers. The facelifted A4L will be powered by the 1.8 TFSI, which is upgraded to produce 170hp, up by 10 horses, and more powerful engines such as the 2.0 TFSI and the 3.2 FSI.
Prices start from 272,800 Chinese yuan (approx. 23.3 Lakh INR) and stretch up till 578,100 Chinese yuan (approx. 49.3 Lakh INR)
China has a large number of people who love to be chauffeur driven and hence the long-wheel based models of even the smaller sedans like the A4 or 3 Series are very popular there.
