The 2016 Audi A4 will be released in the second half of the next year. The famous sedan will come with some interesting new features, which it will need if it truly wants to stay atop of its competition. The manufacturer seems to be aware of the current market situation, since they decided to offer an essentially better model. The 2016 A4 will come with a new and more impressive style, redesigned exterior and interior and powertrain updates. In addition, it is speculated that the new 2016 Audi A4 will come with a plug-in hybrid setup along with its diesel and gasoline engine options. Therefore, the new model will come with something for everybody to choose from. The 2016 Audi A4 should be a tough competition to all other models on the market, since its new features will be impressive and adventurous. The premiere of the new sedan will happen next summer, while the release should follow shortly after.
2016 Audi A4 Exterior Improvements
The 2016 Audi A4 will come with an improved and much more appealing appearance. Of course, there is nothing wrong with the model’s look at the moment, but to be honest, we are kind of getting tired of the same old, same old design. Each Audi model comes with more or less the same style approach, so the differences are mostly in the body shape or some smaller details. Now, we are not saying that the 2016 sedan needs a thorough and radical appearance change, but it wouldn’t hurt if it came out a bit more unique and aggressive. It seems that the manufacturer agrees with us, since the new model will get a bolder new look. Of course, the 2016 Audi A4 will still resemble the current model, since it would be futile and a bit foolish to reinvent its entire exterior design all over again, but according to the rumors, the sedan will now have a more menacing style. The new 2016 model is said to come with bolder front fascia, restyled headlights and large air intakes. These changes will make the sedan look sportier and stand out from the crowd. In addition, the 2016 A4 could also borrow some styling cues from the Audi Prologue Concept, which had its premiere recently. All in all, it seems that the new sedan will come essentially improved and much more interesting than it currently is.
New Platform & Interior Rumors
The 2016 Audi A4 will also come with a new MLB Evo platform. Thanks to this platform, the new sedan is said to come around 200 pounds lighter than the current model. This will have a great impact on the model’s performance and it will also improve its underpinning, since the same platform is used for numerous other models and has proven to be an excellent choice. In addition, the 2016 Audi A4 should come with an improved interior as well. The information about the new cabin is scarce, but since the manufacturer invested so much effort in the exterior redesign, we expect the interior to be at least as equally interesting. Needless to say, the 2016 sedan will surely feature all the latest technology gadgets and newest systems.
Powertrain Changes & Updates
The 2016 Audi A4 will come with its current powertrain options. The base engine will remain the 2.0-liter TSI four-cylinder mill, while the performance version of the sedan, the 2016 S4 will be powered by a supercharged 3.0-liter V6 TSI unit. Another engine option will be a 2.0-liter TDI four-cylinder diesel engine for those who prefer this type of fuel. The performance of all these engines should be improved, mostly because of the new, lighter body. In addition, there might even be a 2016 Audi RS4. The information about this model is modest at the moment, but some sources claim that it will be powered by a twin-turbo V6 unit instead of the current V8. Whether or not this is true, and will it improve the sedan’s performance is unclear at the moment, so we must wait a bit more for additional specs. As for the plug-in hybrid, the 2016 Audi A4 will use an e-tron plug-in hybrid setup. All of the sedans will use either a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission or a six-speed manual. As for the drive modes, there will be a standard front-wheel drive and a famous Quattro all-wheel drive as an option.
2016 Audi A4 Release & Price
The 2016 Audi A4 will have its premiere next summer. The gasoline and diesel units should be released shortly after the debut, while the plug-in hybrid version will be available a bit later. As for the price, it is too early to make any assumptions, so we should wait a bit more for this info.
