Progress is intense The all-new Audi A4 is a fascinating synthesis of technology and esthetics. All the technology in the brand’s bestselling family has been redeveloped so that it yet again defines the benchmark in the segment. During the development work, high priority was placed on the reduction of CO2 emissions. All technologies were focused on reducing drive resistance.
A good example is aerodynamics: The all-new A4 has the best drag coefficient in its class at 0.23. The new A4 model also has impressively low CO2 emissions of 129 grams per kilometer. Yet the all-new A4 2.0 TFSI is sporty with 12% more power at 190 hp for 140 kW and highly fuel-efficient with 16% less fuel consumption compared to the previous A4. CO2 emissions are as low as 112 grams.
Driver assistance systems and infotainment are of luxury quality. A new generation of four-cylinder TFSI engine with newly developed combustion methods sets benchmarks in terms of fuel consumption, emissions and performance for four-cylinder gasoline engines.
At 4.73 meters long and with a wheelbase of 2.82 meters – interior space is optimised and the all-new Audi A4 stands confidently on the road. A prominent horizontal line on the front and rear emphasizes the car’s width. The flowing design with concise lines communicates the sporty elegance of the brand. The Singleframe grille is wide and low; the LED headlights (including dynamic turn indicators) make technology a visual trademark.
140 kilograms lighter Compared with the previous model, the car’s dimensions have grown but its weight has been reduced significantly by 140 kilograms. The body of the all-new Audi A4 is one of the lightest in its class thanks to an intelligent material mix and lightweight construction.
The all-new Audi A4 is a leader in its class also in terms of noise levels. All occupants enjoy generous space; the smooth lines emphasize the width of the interior. The front of the dashboard features a broad band of air outlets and a large decorative surface. At night, optional discreet contour lighting illuminates the doors and the central console. The quality of workmanship is uncompromisingly high. Colors and materials follow a new line concept allowing customers even more freedom during configuration.
The luggage compartment of the all-new Audi A4 offers roomy storage space of 480 liters. The all-new Audi A4 offers an abundance of intelligent technologies, the use of which is even more intuitive with the new Audi MMI display and control concept. Optional technological highlights of the all-new Audi A4 include the Audi virtual cockpit, the Audi Matrix LED headlights and the Bang & Olufsen Sound System with 3D sound.
Information and fascination: the Audi virtual cockpit and the MMI The focus here is on two innovations. The optional Audi virtual cockpit, a fully digital combination instrument, features a 12.3-inch LCD screen that displays the most important information in brilliant high-resolution graphics, with great detail and sophisticated effects. The MMI control concept in the center console is also a newly designed feature and acts as the main control element. The all-new Audi A4 comes with MMI Radio Plus and Concert radio as standard.
For discerning hi-fi fans, the Bang & Olufsen Sound System with innovative 3D sound is available as an option, which introduces the additional dimension of height. The new Audi tablet can also be used as flexible rear seat entertainment.

Driving dynamics The handling of the all-new Audi A4 makes a great leap forward: on the one hand sporty and performance oriented, but with a focus on comfort at the same time. The suspension and steering filter out disturbances such as an uneven road surface, but communicate to the driver important information such as increases in lateral forces and tracking. This performance is based on the redeveloped five-link axles and the electromechanical power steering – they are exceptionally light. They lay the foundation for dynamic handling and first-class ride comfort while also reducing fuel consumption. Additional options are dynamic steering, which varies its ratio according to the car’s speed and the steering angle, and suspension with adjustable shock absorbers with which the driver can for the first time select between two settings: sports or comfort.
