The current Audi A4 hasn’t been quite popular and among the best-selling in the market. However, although it hasn’t been officially confirmed yet, it seems that before this model shows its brand-new next-generation after 2020, it will first hit the market soon with some minor styling makeover. Perhaps, the 2019 Audi A4 will have more luck than its predecessor.
When it comes to exterior of the 2019 Audi A4, the carmaker will obviously tend to solve some of the earlier issues. However, the fans shouldn’t hope for some drastic measures. Instead, the new A4 will undergo some subtle changes and improvements in terms of styling. It has been said that this model will keep its current architecture and wheelbase. On the other hand, you can expect bigger dimensions, which promises more spacious and comfortable interior as well. Besides that, the wider A4 will have to provide better stability and handling. We have noticed that most of its exterior features have been borrowed, or inspired by some other Audi models. For instance, the wider hexagonal grille that the A4 will get has been compared to the one seen on the A6. The new A4 has also been compared to the A8 in terms of lighting system. Namely, you will notice that its full-LED headlights show some sleeker design. The whole vehicle appears sportier and more aggressive than its predecessor.
The interior of the 2019 Audi A4 will show a classy and spacious cabin with plenty of improvements. The German carmaker will pay special attention to materials and gadgets. The standard model will use leather and other high-quality materials. You can definitely expect some great luxury and comfort inside the new A4. This model will offer the LED ambient lighting as well. The center console will reveal an 8.3-inch touch-screen display with the latest infotainment system as features such as navigation, automatic climate control, Wi-Fi and other kinds of connectivity.
The 2019 Audi A4 will offer more than one engine option under its hood. It will come in both gas and diesel versions, but the diesel ones probably won’t be available in the US market. The base model should come with a 2.0-liter inline-4 that delivers 190 horsepower and 236 pound-feet of torque. The other such option hits 252 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque. The new A4 will also offer a 1.5-liter TFSI petrol engine with 150 horsepower, but not in the US. For other markets, this model will also include a 1.5-liter TDI with 136 and 183 horsepower and the 3.0-liter V6 with 300 horsepower and 354 pound-feet of torque is expected as well. The mild-hybrid and all-electric versions have also been speculated.
