At the 2015 Frankfurt Auto Show in September, Audi will reveal its remarkable sedan 2016 Audi A4. This is its second model based on Evo MLB architecture.
Redesign of exterior and interior
2016 Audi A4 will come to the market in big style. If we are comparing it with its predecessor, new model will suffer some changes. Engineers of this great German vehicle have decided to improve general performances and fuel efficiency of the car. This is why they have used lightweight materials like aluminum, high strength steel and other light but very strong materials. This way they have succeded to reduce its weight for more than 220 pounds (100 kg). This all means that 2016 Audi A4 will get new platform. This new platform is very similar to Audi’s MLP Evo (Modular Longitudinal Platform) platform. A variant of new MLB Evo architecture is also found under the latest Audi Q7 SUV. With MLP Evo platform 2016 Audi A4 will get longer wheelbase. This way whole cabin will have more space inside. Interior of the vehicle will be equipped with the latest hi-tech entertainment system and safety features from Audi. There will be small screen on top of the dashboard, and the number of buttons has been reduced. In the front of the new, simple and more solid gear shifter will be placed a small MMI controller. New 2016 Audi A4 will share digital instrumental panel and an e-Quattro plug-in hybrid powertrain. Also it will be equipped with high quality materials. Seats will get new upholstery too. Customers will enjoy in this vehicle for sure. As far as the exterior of the vehicle is concerned, 2016 Audi A4 will suffer some changes on the front end. The single-frame grille will be new too with Audi’s emblem in the center, and it will be bigger than before. Headlights will be redesigned too. Those will be powered with LED technology (LED lamps) and Matrix laser lights, with angular shape to give more modern and aggressive look. The air intakes at the bottom of 2016 Audi A4 will be shaped aggressively. Overall, we have to say that new A4’s styling is similar to the new Q7.
2016 Audi A4 powertrain
This new Audi’s model will remain with the front-wheel drive as a standard. All-wheel drive will be offered as an option. We may also see the new e-Quattro system offered in the new A4. When we are talking about engine options for new model, the base one should be a turbocharged 2.0 – liter four engine. This engine is capable to produce 200 horsepower and 207 lb-ft of torque. Second option will be a 3.0 – liter V6 engine with ability to produce around 350 horsepower and 347 lb-ft of torque. In this line-up we should see a frugal turbocharged 2.0 – liter diesel engine. We have also found that for the European market, there will be three engine options for new 2016 Audi A4. We are talking about 1.4 – liter, 1.3 – liter and 2.0 – liter TFSI engines. Together with six-speed manual transmission there should be offered and seven speed manual transmission.
