More powerful, more efficient, more intelligent – Audi’s all-new A4 saloon and A4 Avant feature numerous premium technologies which set higher benchmarks for their class.

They will be available to order in UK in late summer ahead of first customer deliveries of the saloon towards the end of the year and Avant early 2016.

The car’s dimensions have grown but its weight has been reduced by up to 120kg and it is up to 21% more fuel efficient. Thenew models also have low CO2 emissions with the 2.0 TDI ultra turbo diesel below 100g/km.

Seven turbo engines will be available from launch – three TFSI petrol and four TDI diesel with increased power outputs from 150PS to 272PS. All engines combine high efficiency with outstanding responsiveness and refinement, particularly the two 3.0 TDI six-cylinder engines.

The 190PS 2.0 TFSI ultra uses a new combustion method that makes it especially efficient. A g-tron version will be launched in some markets which can use natural gas or the sustainably produced Audi e-gas as fuel.

The six-speed manual transmission, seven-speed S tronic (now also available for front-wheel drive) and eight-speed tiptronic gearboxes have been redesigned.

Redeveloped suspension and the electromechanical power steering improve ride and handling. Options include dynamic steering and suspension with adjustable shock absorbers with which the driver can for the first time select between sports or comfort settings. Both suspension settings are included in the drive select driving-dynamics system, which is standard equipment in the UK.

The A4 is a leader in its class also in terms of noise levels. All occupants enjoy generous space with the smooth lines emphasising the width of the interior.

The A4 Avant’s 505-litre boot, the biggest in this class. rises to a maximum 1,510 litres. An electric luggage compartment cover and electric tailgate are standard with sensor control for opening and closing the tailgate optional.

The new A4 offers an abundance of intelligent technologies with highlights including a 12.3in virtual cockpit with high-resolution graphics seen on the new TT, matrix LED headlights, smartphone interface, Bang & Olufsen Sound System with 3D sound, Audi phone box with wireless charging, head-up display and new driver assistance systems and Audi connect services.

Standard equipment is even more comprehensive including 17in alloy wheels, Xenon headlights with LED daytime running lights, smartphone interface, drive select, three-zone climate control and seven-inch colour MMI (multimedia interface) monitor.
