. These changes were made taking into account feedback from customers of the leading brand markets, Germany, China and the United States.

New features include a wider grille, a new headlamp design with new graphics of LED daytime running lights and clamshell-style bonnet, larger wheel arches and a flatter roof. At the rear the new Audi A4 receives a new graphism of the headlamps and in the case of the sedan version, a bootlid placed higher than the previous model.

The new A4 is slightly larger than the previous generation: it is 41mm longer at 4726mm, 32mm wider at 1842mm and 1427mm with 13mm lower than the Mercedes C-Class. By using the MLB platform, the new A4 has a wheelbase of 2820mm, 12mm longer than the previous generation. Still the Audi sedan had its weight reduced by 120kg through the use of reinforced steel and aluminum in bodywork structure in various panels, including the roof.

With the increased size Audi also managed to increase the interior space which can improve the model's comfort levels. Moreover, the brand also introduced new seats, which according to Audi are 9kg lighter than the previous model.

The range of engines of the new A4 will include three turbo four-cylinder petrol engines, two diesel four-cylinder and two V6 diesel. All of them will meet the EU6 standards of CO2 emissions and, according to Audi, offer 25% more output, they are also 21% more efficient compared to the previous generation.

One new feature is the 1.4-liter four-cylinder petrol engine with 150hp. This will be the base version of the new range A4 and takes the A4 1.4 TFSI up to 100km/h in 8.9 seconds at a top speed of 210km/h. Consumption is indicated at 4.9l/100km with CO2 emissions of 114g/km.

The four-cylinder 2.0 engine will be available with two different outputs: 190 and 252hp. The most powerful version can reach to 100km/h in 5.8 seconds in sedan form and a top speed of 250km/h. In the Avant variant the acceleration is accomplished in 6.0 seconds. The consumption of the sedan front-wheel drive version combined with a dual-clutch S tronic transmission will be 5.7l/100km, with CO2 emissions of 129g/km.

With 190hp the same engine reaches 100km/h in 7.3 seconds and a top speed of 240km/h in the sedan variant and 7.5 seconds to 238km/h in the Avant variant. The consumption of the sedan is announced at 4,8l/100km with emissions 109g/km while the Avant version gets 5.0l/100km and 114g/km.

The diesel range will comprise a quartet of versions, three of them based on the same four-cylinder engine equipped with the new AdBlue exhaust injection system. The base version will have 150hp and allows the vehicle to accelerate from 0 to 100km/h in 8.6 seconds and reach a top speed of 219km/h in the sedan variant and 9.0 seconds on the Avant variant. Consumption is set at 3.8 and 4.0l/100km respectively, while CO2 emissions are 99 and 104g/km. The most powerful version with 190hp is also quite efficient since it has an average consumption of 4.1 and 4.2l/100km on the Sedan and Avant variants, but still can reach 100km/h in 7.7 and 7.9 respectively and a top speed of 237 and 231km/h.

This engine will also have an ultra version receiving changes to the exterior design that improve the car aerodynamically, allowing increased efficiency. With an average fuel consumption of 3.7l/100km and emissions of 95g/km it will be, according to Audi, the most efficient vehicle in its class.

The top-end engine of the range is the 3.0 V6 diesel with two outputs, 218 and 272hp. Both A4 Sedan and A4 Avant variants of 218hp have an average fuel consumption of 4.8l/100km with 110g/km CO2 emissions. 272hp versions will be able to accelerate from 0 to 100km/h in 5.3 and 5.4 seconds respectively, with a top speed of 250km/h. The announced consumption is 4.9 and 5.1l/100km, with CO2 emissions of 129 and 134g/km.

Also part of the range is the new Audi A4 g-tron version with 170hp which can be driven using natural gas and Audi e-gas.
