For years the Audi A4 has dominated the entry-luxury sedan segment with its well-rounded feature set and compelling looks. The athletic performance of the car has also made it a favorite among-st driving enthusiasts whereas luxury interiors and Audi’s renowned infotainment features have made it a darling for first time luxury car buyers in India. Audi has also kept the model fresh by offering periodic updates to the styling and features of the A4, which gives the car its iconic status as a cutting edge, upmarket product.
So, what’s new in the Audi A4 this year, let’s find out.
Audi A4: New Features
There is a new black optic plus package available for the all-wheel drive Premium Plus and Prestige models. The package blacks out the Audi A4′s exterior, including the front-grille, window surrounds, wheels, rear spoiler, and mirror housings. It also adds a sport steering wheel, glossy black trim and subtle red upholstery stitching inside the car.

The base Premium trim of the car now gets heated front seats as standard while the Premium Plus models get blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert as a standard feature. The top-end Audi A4 Prestige now has more advanced active safety gear, which includes adaptive cruise control, auto high-beam and traffic sign recognition.
In terms of comfort, the A4 is quite ahead of its competition. A slim dashboard makes the A4′s cabin feel more spacious and airy and the A4 retains the class leading space and comfort offered by its rear seats, so it’s a win-win on the comfort end.
Audi A4: Performance
Apart from the standard engine setups, the fuel-economy focused 2.0 litre turbocharged inline-four cylinder engine introduced in select Audi models last year is now available in all three trim levels with front-wheel drive.
The A4 has very responsive acceleration and remains composed at highway speed. The handling as mentioned above has been a shining feature of the A4s since their launch and the new model continues that tradition. The 6-speed manual takes the crown for racy performance and more powerful braking.
Audi A4: Which trim should you buy?
The mid-range Premium Plus is our personal favourite, as it offers a very good balance between the performance, comfort and tech features. If you love to cruise at highway speeds, avoid the detuned ultra engine and get an all-wheel drive with six-speed manual transmission. You can also opt for an updated navigation and telematics package which adds, an 8.3-inch infotainment display, navigation and Audi’s virtual cockpit digital gauge cluster.
