We recently talked about the new Audi A5. Now, Audi showed the updated version of A4, which will amaze demonstration halls in Europe in January 2013.
In Europe, the refreshed A4 will be sold in the back sedan, station wagon, alload Qttro and sports versions S4. Audi says that S4 will be able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km per hour in just five seconds, while the maximum speed will lie around 248 km per hour, and fuel consumption will be only 8 liters per 100 km.
Having measured forces against the new versions of the BMW 3-Series and Mercedes-Benz C-Class, the converted A4 receives several changes in design, revised engines for the European market and small internal alterations.
External changes include:
– The new front with large lush front headlights with converted LED running lights, which now look like a continuous strip.
– More contours on the hood.
– A new grille of the radiator, which is painted in gray on versions with four cylinders and black on models with six cylinders.
– Updated bumper with fog lights in the form of a trapezoid.
– New lights appeared from behind with altered LED graphics.
– New rear bumper with paired chrome exhaust pipes.
Inside, Audi offers new steering wheel projects, a higher quality dashboard and a central tunnel finish, a reviewed gearbox lever and an updated MMI navigation system.
