The new Audi A4 has been spotted testing in Mumbai yet again, ahead of its national launch in the coming months. Now in its fifth generation, the all-new B9 A4 first went public at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show in September last year, and is already on sale in Europe.
Based on the VW Group’s MLB Evo platform, the new Audi A4 is bigger, wider, lighter and more efficient than its predecessor, apart from being more technologically advanced. Internationally, the new Audi A4 is available in both saloon and estate (Avant) body-styles.
The 2016 Audi A4 will be powered by a choice of 7 all-new, or heavily revised petrol and diesel engines, available in 4-cylinder (TFSI & TDI) and 6-cylinder (TDI) guises. Amongst all, destined for India should be the 2.0-liter TFSI, turbocharged, petrol, four-cylinder and the 2.0-liter TDI, turbocharged, four-cylinder diesel engines.
The 2.0 TFSI is rated at 252 horsepower and 370 Nm of torque (190 hp/320 Nm in Ultra guise), while the 2.0-liter TDI makes 190 horsepower and 400 Nm of torque. Both engines will be mated to a seven-speed, dual clutch, S Tronic transmission.
