2016 Audi A4 Review

The latest edition of Audi A4 has undergone some updating.

Audi A4 2016 Exterior

The exterior styling of the 2016 Audi A4 B9 is based on the one
of the ATS. It is smooth, sleek and dissolute. It has quite
subtle trimmer headlights and a plain-looking grille. Larger
fog lamps build more muscle at ground level.

The biggest change in comparison to its predecessor is that the
Premium trims with the S line competition + package
will feature 19” 5 V-Spoke wheels. Also, the A4 is from now on
available in Misano Red pearl effect paint. Traditionally
will be built in Sedan, Avant and allroad version as well.

2016 Audi A4 Interior

The cabin of the 2016 Audi A4 is made of aluminum or some
“warmer” wood.

As for the seats, they are still high-quality seats wrapped in
leather, still as comfortable. Sport seats are optional for the
passengers. The rear seat is placed low to the ground and
provides plenty of knee room and shoulder room. The trunk is
disappointingly small.

The controls are more user-friendly since the last year’s
rearrangement. Audi still hasn’t made a rearview camera
standard, but blind-spot monitors and adaptive cruise control
are available. Some exotic features distinguish between the
Standard and the Premium trim.

Standard comes with the usual features such as satellite radio,
Bluetooth, the Multi Media Interface (in charge of navigation
systems, Google Earth and Google Street View mapping).

The Premium trim includes a standard three-spoke multifunction
steering wheel, available Advanced Key and Audi connect as part
of the Navigation plus package. A Bang & Olufsen Sound
System has also been added to the Technology package on Premium
Plus models.

Engine and Specs

Under the hood, the new Audi A4 2016 has a turbocharged
2.0-liter, 4-cylinder delivering 220 horsepower. It’s paired up
with one of two transmissions: front-drive cars get a CVT with
the best gas mileage, whereas all-wheel drive cars come with a
choice of a 6-speed manual and an 8-speed automatic
transmission.

The 8-speed automatic has a sport shift mode, however it lacks
paddle-shift controls.

When it comes to acceleration, it is strong on all-wheel-drive
models, with the fuel economy on the highway being reasonable.

Audi also has plans to introduce 3.0-liter TFSI and TDI
engines, like the ones shown in Vienna last year (but these
will likely be available for the US market only).

Price and release date

The release date of Audi A4 2016 still remains unknown, but
rumor has it the vehicle will be unveiled in September at the
Frankfurt Motor Show. The pricing will be somewhere in the
neighborhood of the previous model – $36,000 for the Standard
model, making it one of the cheaper models in its class.
