After its 2017 redesign, we just saw a mild shakeup in the 2018 Audi A4 with the addition of the Black Optic Plus bundle and a couple of new basic features. We expect even less changes for the 2019 Audi A4, as we expect it being a carryover. The facelifted Audi A4 has actually been spotted screening under very nearly no camouflage. Despite appearances, there will be subtle styling differences and a slightly improved interior when it goes on sale in the very first part of 2019.
2019 Audi A4 Styling
It’s time to get the magnifying glass out– unless Audi is hiding a more radical facelift, this new version will look practically identical to the current car. There are changes, if you know where to look– primarily, a fine-tuned bumper with new angled lower grilles. At the back, there’ll be new exhaust ideas and a subtle spoiler. Audi has favoured not changing the styling excessive just recently– check out how comparable the facelifted TT will be to the existing car. However, the A4 is a huge seller and a good-looking car currently, so there might not have been much point in a more extensive styling change.
2019 Audi A4 Interior
Just a mid-life refresh is due for the A4’s interior, too. It will not get the ultra-modern appearances of the A6, A7 and A8 just yet– they have the infotainment screen plumbed into the dash, whereas this prototype A4 still has a ‘floating’ system that rests on the top of the centre console– like in the picture above.
That said, the cabin will provide a range of improvements over the current car in an attempt to keep the A4 fresh and premium-feeling. Software application updates to the infotainment and Virtual Cockpit systems will use quicker action times and slightly much better functionality, while the A4 will be available with additional safety technology.
2019 Audi A4 Engines and Driving
Expect the new A4 to offer mild-hybrid capabilities that can shut the engine down while coasting, which is believed to enhance fuel economy by approximately 5%. That might not seem like much, however it will likewise help in reducing the emissions figure and, therefore, the road tax costs. It’s highly not likely that Audi will introduce any new engines, however the majority of will be more cost-effective and provide a smidge more power than the existing model.
2019 Audi A4 Price and Release Date
