After its 2017 redesign, we just saw a moderate shakeup in the 2018 Audi A4 with the addition of the Black Optic Plus package and a few new standard features. We anticipate even less changes for the 2019 Audi A4, as we expect it being a carryover. The facelifted Audi A4 has actually been spotted testing under extremely practically no camouflage. Despite looks, there will be subtle styling distinctions and a somewhat improved interior when it goes on sale in the first part of 2019.
2019 Audi A4 Styling
It’s time to obtain the magnifying glass out– unless Audi is concealing a more extreme facelift, this new version will look nearly similar to the existing car. There are changes, if you understand where to look– chiefly, a tweaked bumper with new angled lower grilles. At the rear, there’ll be new exhaust suggestions and a subtle spoiler. Audi has actually favoured not altering the styling too much just recently– check out how similar the facelifted TT will be to the current car. Nevertheless, the A4 is a big seller and a good-looking car already, so there may not have been much point in a more thorough styling change.
2019 Audi A4 Interior
Simply a mid-life refresh is due for the A4’s interior, too. It won’t get the ultra-modern looks of the A6, A7 and A8 just yet– they have the infotainment screen plumbed into the dash, whereas this prototype A4 still has a ‘drifting’ system that rests on the top of the centre console– like in the image above.
That stated, the cabin will provide a range of improvements over the existing car in an attempt to keep the A4 fresh and premium-feeling. Software application updates to the infotainment and Virtual Cockpit systems will offer quicker reaction times and somewhat better usability, while the A4 will be readily 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 cruising, which is thought to enhance fuel economy by approximately 5%. That might not seem like much, however it will also help in reducing the emissions figure and, for that reason, the road tax expense. It’s extremely not likely that Audi will introduce any new engines, but most will be more economical and provide a smidge more power than the present model.
2019 Audi A4 Price and Release Date
Judging by the lack of camo on this pre-production model, the facelifted Audi A4 will be on sale in the very first few months of 2019. The entry-level model will begin with simply above ₤ 28,000. The 2019 Audi A4’s competitors will remain the BMW 3-Series, Mercedes-Benz C-Class, and Jaguar XE.
