The B9 will replace a model that has been in production since 2008 and was never well received. Unfortunately, we can't expect a major revolution in terms of design since the A4 will look pretty much just like the Q7 and TT. A larger hexagonal grille can be seen from underneath the camouflage, while the profile has a single well-defined line going through the door handles.
The overall proportions of the model appear unchanged, but the front overhang has been shortened, likely in order to increase legroom for front passengers and improve handling. Using the aluminum pressing machine we mentioned, Audi is going to construct its executive compact lighter and stiffer. A new engine range will be introduced, and some of the mills will be downsized.
According to some reports, the smallest available will be a 1.4-liter turbo TFSI available in multiple stages of tune. The bulk of sales, however, will come from a variety of 2-liter diesel, one of which will also be combined with electric power to make the first-ever A4 e-tron.
Just like its rival from Mercedes, the C-Class, Audi's sedan will be available with more gears than ever, 9 to be more precise. It's believed that this and other measures could make the B9 generation about 15% more economical on average.
