Audi A4 Expert Review

Stefan Ogbac

All 2015 Audi A4 models gain the S line style package, 60/40 split rear seats, three-zone climate control, and headlight washers as standard equipment while a new 18-inch wheel design is optional on all variants. Premium plus models now come with a three-spoke multi-function steering wheel. The Sport Plus package replaces the Black Optic package and adds a three-spoke, flat-bottom steering wheel, and a black headliner. Premium Plus and Prestige models are now available with the S line competition package, which includes black exterior mirrors, and leather/Alcantara interior with piano black inlays. The Navigation package has been replaced with the Technology package, which now includes Audi side assist.

The 2015 Audi A4 is a popular luxury sedan sold in front- or all-wheel-drive configurations. Its high-performance variant, the S4, is one of the fastest cars in its class and offers strong driving dynamics. An A4-based crossover wagon is sold as the Allroad model.

Two engines are available in the 2015 Audi A4: a turbocharged 2.0-liter I-4 with 220 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque in the base model and a supercharged 3.0-liter V-6 rated at 333 hp and 325 lb-ft in the high-performance S4. A manual transmission is offered on all-wheel-drive models while front-drive A4s are only available with a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). All-wheel-drive models have two automatics available: an eight-speed unit on the A4 and a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox on the S4.

Fuel economy is decent with front-drive A4s achieving 24/32 mpg city/highway. Manual-equipped A4s are rated at 22/32 mpg while opting for the eight-speed automatic on all-wheel-drive models drops those numbers down to 22/31 mpg. The S4 is relatively efficient for the performance it offers at 18/28 mpg with the seven-speed dual-clutch automatic and 17/26 mpg with the manual.

Performance is a strong point in the 2015 Audi A4 particularly in the S4, which offers quick acceleration and confident with its all-wheel-drive system, well-tuned chassis, and the available sport differential. Refinement is a strong point on the A4 with a quiet and comfortable ride even at highway speeds where the car remains stable; however, the performance-minded S4 is less livable with a firm suspension that can be harsh over rough pavement.

Interior quality is good, with high-grade maters and plenty of tech features including an available mobile wi-fi hotspot, a Bang & Olufsen sound system, and a navigation system with Google Earth. Build-quality is good, with high-grade materials used throughout the cabin including real wood and metal trims. Seating is good, particularly the available sports seats, which provide good support for long drives and carving up twisty roads.

The 2015 Audi A4 has a five-star overall safety rating from the NHTSA (out of a possible five stars).

UPDATE: In IIHS evaluations, the car received a Good score in four categories and Poor in the small overlap front crash test (Good is the highest possible score).

The 2015 Audi A4 remains a good choice among compact luxury sedans with plenty of available tech features, great driving dynamics, and all-weather capability. In a 2013 First Test, we said that the high-performance variant, the S4, offers exceptional performance and trumps most of its competition; however, its lack of artificial-feeling steering detracts from its driving experience due to it not providing feedback to the driver. Additionally, the S4's firm ride makes it less viable as a daily driver compared to the less powerful but more livable A4. Interior quality has improved since the 2013 model year refresh, with better materials and new tech features such as Google Earth for the navigation system.

However, in a comparison test among five compact luxury sport sedans, we noted that while the interior is high-quality, it "isn't particularly interesting to look at." Seating, on the other hand, is comfortable in both the A4 and S4 with well-bolstered and supportive seats.

2015 Audi A4 Review : Run-out round up

With the impending release of the 2016 Audi A4 range, we take a last look at the outgoing Audi A4. It's still a vehicle worth considering, especially if you can snag a run-out bargain.

  • Excellent engine and transmission
  • comfort and quality inside the cabin
  • quattro grip is exceptional and ride is near on perfect around town
  • Infotainment system is starting to age, especially with the advent of virtual cockpit in other Audi models
  • second row is bigger than the competition but can still be tight with tall occupants up front




2015 audi a4 runout 12

Having recently driven the all-new 2016 Audi A4 at its international launch in Italy, you might expect me to suggest you wait for the imminent arrival of that new model (late November 2015) before laying down your hard-earned dollars on an A4. While the new A4 is an evolutionary improvement and an undoubtedly impressive all-rounder, there’s still some life in the old dog yet so to speak.

A week behind the wheel of the 2015 Audi A4 2.0 TFSI quattro reminded everyone at CarAdvice of two things. Firstly, it hammered home the point that the 2.0 TFSI quattro model remains the pick of the A4 range, and secondly it also highlighted the reality that the new model has by no means rendered the outgoing A4 redundant.

Read our launch review of the new 2016 Audi A4 range here.

The A4 has always been an important vehicle for Audi and a figurehead of what the German brand stands for. Globally, the A4 is Audi’s most popular vehicle. In Australia, the rabid crush to get onto the SUV ownership bandwagon means the Q5 takes that title, but the A4 is still a long-time favourite among Australian buyers who need or want a quality mid-sized sedan. There’s good reason for that too, the A4 delivers a potent mix of practicality, comfort, quality and performance, depending on which model within the extensive range takes your fancy.

We’ve taken a close look here at the model variant we think is the pick of the A4 range, the 2.0 TFSI quattro. If you’ve got a hankering for an Audi A4, now might be the time to go to work on your dealer too. Dealers certainly won’t want the old model sitting round taking up space, when the new one arrives on the showroom floor. We did some quick research in the CarAdvice office and found some compelling drive away pricing in a variety of dealers around the country.



The Audi A4 sedan range starts from the following prices:

  • 1.8 TFSI: $55,500
  • 2.0 TFSI Ambition: $57,100
  • 2.0 TFSI S Line: $65,000
  • 2.0 TDI Ambition: $59,900
  • 2.0 TDI S Line: $67,800

The Audi A4 wagon range adds:

  • 1.8 TFSI: $58,500
  • 2.0 TFSI Ambition: $62,900
  • 2.0 TFSI S Line: $70,800

Don’t forget these prices are the manufacturer recommended guides and you need to add the raft of drive away pricing on top, but there’ll be some bargains to be had well below these quoted prices if you’re a smart shopper.

As tested, our 2.0TFSI quattro is fitted with a sunroof ($1731.00), heated front seats ($538.00) and has the convenience key option costing $962.00. That brings the as-tested price to $63,131 plus on road costs and dealer charges.

Back to the 2.0 TFSI specifically though… The direct injection turbocharged two-litre engine pumps out 165kW between 4500-6250rpm and 350Nm between 1500-4500rpm. It’s a heady combination when paired with the excellent seven-speed S tronic gearbox, and the A4 gets from 0-100km/h in 6.4 seconds.

The ADR fuel figure for the A4 is 6.7L/100km – not bad when you consider how nimble and responsive the A4 can be under the right driving conditions. On that subject, the standard quattro drivetrain helps the A4 use every bit of power and torque as efficiently as it can. Around town for our review we saw figures 8.5-9.0L/100km range without trying to be too efficient or frugal.

The other side of the coin with the 2.0TFSI though is performance on hand when you desire it. The engine delivers its power and torque low down in the rev range, especially the torque peak which rolls on from a low 1500rpm. It’s the perfect combination around town. You can get the A4 off the mark quickly, you can get up to the speed you want quickly, and roll on overtaking is a cinch too.

The A4 is the kind of car that is genuinely enjoyable at mundane speeds such is the punch of the engine and the way the drivetrain transfers power to the wheels. Put it this way, in this class, you’re never left feeling like the 2.0TFSI is underpowered or short of grunt. The quattro drivetrain makes use of every available shred of power too.

The A4 has always had a slight weight disadvantage (around the 115kg mark) compared to its most obvious foe, the BMW 3-series, with the quattro drivetrain probably making up most that deficit. Despite that though, the obvious advantages of all-wheel traction, especially in wet or slippery conditions more than outweigh - no pun intended - the marginally more portly overall package.

Take a seat in the A4’s cabin and you’re immediately reminded of how well a properly designed and laid out cabin can age over time. The 2015 A4 doesn’t have the avant-garde whiff of Audis new, nor does it feature the clever and user-friendly virtual cockpit system that has impressed us in TT and R8. It does however deliver every piece of information you need, it does so clearly and the major driver interfaces between vehicle and controls are exceptional. One of Audi’s strongest selling points of late has been a premium cabin feel and there’s no doubting the presence of it in the current A4.

The driving position is close to perfect, visibility is excellent and you’ll be comfortable no matter which one of the four main seats you occupy. We found getting comfortable behind the wheel to be impressively easy. The combination of clever physical positioning, and just the right range of adjustment makes the A4 a winner in the ergonomics stakes. The steering wheel adjustment especially, is expansive enough to accommodate drivers of all heights.



Importantly, the cabin is also spacious, so while the A4 slots into the compact luxury sedan segment, it’s by no means compact internally. The second row delivers more legroom than you expect, although if the driver is particularly tall, the passenger behind them will be a little cramped. It’s not a deal breaker though and we’ve previously found the A4 to be slightly roomier than its competitors.

We’ve always liked the Audi’s MMI system and while it’s ageing a little now, especially with the advent of virtual cockpit, it’s by no means a poor system. The buttons and controls are simple to use and the general ergonomic layout is right on the money.

The A4 gets a 60:40 split backrest for the rear bench and a 480-litre boot, which is more than spacious enough for this segment. The folding backrest lets you carry longer luggage like skis or bicycles as well.

The A4’s around town ride quality and bump compliance is exceptional. It has that typical Audi sense of being carved from a single block of granite and that feeling translates through to the ride, which is beautifully insulated no matter how poor the road surface you’re bombing over. It simply adds to the feeling of quality, and it’s one of the signatures of an expensive European vehicle that can be lacking when the ride is tuned more toward sporty handling than ride compliance.

Despite its ability to iron out surface imperfections with ease, the A4 is capable of handling beyond your expectations too. Head for a twisty country road and the A4 can really hook in, with surety and plenty of grip. You’d have to push the quitter system well beyond it’s limits to ever feel unsafe behind the wheel of the A4.

Ultimately, the Audi A4 especially in 2.0TFSI quattro guise, is a reminder of just how enjoyable medium sedan ownership can be. It’s a segment that has always delivered a mix of practicality and driving enjoyment when you get behind the wheel of a well sorted European example.



While there’s a new Audi A4 just around the corner, there’s no reason not to consider a run out model if you’re on a budget. The current Audi A4 will do everything you need it to with style and composure.

Audi A4

German compact executive car model

For the high-performance versions of the Audi A4, see Audi S4 and Audi RS 4.

Motor vehicle

The Audi A4 is a line of compact executive cars produced since 1994 by the German car manufacturer Audi, a subsidiary of the Volkswagen Group.

The A4 has been built in five generations and is based on the Volkswagen Group B platform. The first generation A4 succeeded the Audi 80. The automaker's internal numbering treats the A4 as a continuation of the Audi 80 lineage, with the initial A4 designated as the B5-series, followed by the B6, B7, B8, and the B9. The B8 and B9 versions of the A4 are built on the Volkswagen Group MLB platform shared with many other Audi models and potentially one Porsche model within Volkswagen Group.[2]

The Audi A4 automobile layout consists of a front-engine design, with transaxle-type transmissions mounted at the rear of the engine. The cars are front-wheel drive, or on some models, "quattro" all-wheel drive.

The A4 is available as a sedan and station wagon. Historically, the second (B6) and third generations (B7) of the A4 also included a convertible version. For the fourth generation (B8) and onwards, the convertible, along with a new coupé and 5-door liftback variant, was spun-off by Audi into a new nameplate called the Audi A5.

The first generation Audi A4 (known internally as the Typ 8D) debuted in October 1994,[5][6] with production starting November 1994 and European sales commencing in January 1995 for the 1995 model year. North American sales later began in September 1995 for the 1996 model year.[7] It was built on the Volkswagen Group B5 (PL45) platform, which it shared with the fourth generation Volkswagen Passat (B5, Typ 3B). It had a front-mountedlongitudinal engine and front-wheel drive. Many variations of the A4 were also available with Audi's quattrofour-wheel drive system. The A4 was initially introduced as a four-door saloon/sedan; the Avant (estate/wagon) was introduced in November 1995 and went on sale in February 1996.

Development began in 1988, with the first design sketches being created later that year. By 1991, an exterior design by Imre Hasanic was chosen and frozen for November 1994 production by 1992. The interior design was later finalized in 1992, with pilot production commencing in the first half of 1994. Development concluded in the third quarter of 1994, preceding November 1994 start of production.[8][9][10][11]

A wide range of engines were available in European markets, between 1.6 and 2.8 litres for petrol engines; and a 1.9-litre diesel engine available with Volkswagen Group's VE technology, capable of achieving a 90 PS (66 kW; 89 bhp) or 110 PS (81 kW; 108 bhp). The 2.6 and 2.8-litre V6 engines which had been carried over from the old 80/90 proved popular, although in North America, the 2.8-litre engine was the only V6 that was available there until 1997. A 2.4-liter version was developed especially for the Thai market, where import duty jumped from 60 to 100 percent on cars of over 2,400 cc displacement.[12]

The Audi A4 was the first model in the Volkswagen Group to feature the new 1.8-litre 20v engine with five valves per cylinder, based on the unit Audi Sport had developed for their Supertouring race car. A turbocharged 1.8T version produced 150 PS (110 kW; 148 bhp) and 210 N⋅m (155 lb⋅ft) torque. Moreover, a quattro GmbH special edition of the B5 1.8T was later available in Germany and Europe, for which the engine's power output was raised to 180 PS (132 kW; 178 bhp) and 235 N⋅m (173 lb⋅ft). Five-valve technology was also added to a reengineered V6 family of engines in 1997, starting with the 2.8-litre V6 30v, which now produced 193 PS (142 kW; 190 bhp), followed by a 2.4-litre V6 which was a downsize from the previous 2.6 litre, 150 hp engine, but with a power increase to 165 PS (121 kW; 163 bhp).

Audi also debuted their new tiptronic automatic transmission on the B5 platform, based on the unit Porsche developed for their 964-generation 911. The transmission is a conventional automatic gearbox with a torque converter offering the driver a fully-automatic operation or manual selection of the gear ratios.

The B5 marked Audi's continued move into the midsize luxury car segment, having started this trajectory notably with later model years of the preceding Audi 80/90 B4. Despite initial mechanical problems, overall build and assembly quality were lauded both by the automotive press and within Audi and Volkswagen, and at the time, parent company Volkswagen declared the B5 the company-wide build quality benchmark for all its other models.

Facelift (1999 –2001)[edit]

Sedan (facelift)

Avant (facelift)

The Audi A4 B5 saw nearly constant minor changes and alterations throughout its seven-year run. Moreover, a significant facelift was introduced for the 1998 B5 model year at the 1997 Frankfurt Motor Show, with sales beginning in Europe in early 1998. The 2.8-litre 30-valve V6 engine replaced the 2.8-litre 12-valve. A 2.5-litre V6 Turbocharged Direct Injection (TDI) diesel engine with 150 PS (110 kW; 148 bhp) was standard on the Quattro. A six-speed manual gearbox was available, as well as the new high-performance Audi S4, now part of the A4 lineup (the previous S4 had been an Audi 100). Cosmetic updates included new rear lights, headlights, door handles, and another minor exterior/interior changes.

In mid-1998, the 1.8 20vT engine available outside Europe had its power output raised to 170 PS (125 kW; 168 bhp). The previous KKK K03 turbocharger, although fundamentally unchanged, received revisions on the turbine side to prevent cracking due to heat.[citation needed] The 12-valve V6 was replaced by the 30-valve unit which had been available in Europe for two years.

A further facelift took place across the A4 and S4 platform in February 1999 as a 1999.5 model; changes were largely cosmetic but affected many components, such as both front and rear bumpers, the front and rear lights, the center console, and door handles.[13] This facelift was known at Audi as a Grosse Produktaufwertung (Major Product Upgrade), as was also signified by facelift cars now carrying the denomination "8D2".

In 1999 Audi also debuted an even higher performance RennSport model (rennsport literally translates as racing sport), the RS4 Avant, like its predecessor RS2, available only in the Avant bodystyle.

Safety[edit]

In the Euro NCAP safety and crash tests, the Audi B5 A4 received 3 stars for front- and side-impact protection, but the last star is flagged to indicate that the driver may be subjected to a high risk of chest injury in the side impact.[15]

Derived hybrid version[edit]

In 1997, Audi was the first European car manufacturer to put a hybrid vehicle into mass production, the third generation Audi duo, then based on the A4 Avant.[16][17]

The next A4, internally designated Typ 8E, debuted on 10 October 2000, now riding on the Volkswagen Group B6 (PL46) platform. The car's new styling was developed under Peter Schreyer between 1996 and 1998, inspired by the Bauhaus design language of the C5 (second-generation) Audi A6 introduced in 1997. The 1.6-litre base model powerplant remained unchanged, but most other petrol/gasoline engines received either displacement increases, or power upgrades. The 1.8-litre 20-valve Turbo was now available in two additional versions, with 150 PS (110 kW; 148 bhp) or 180 PS (132 kW; 178 bhp), this one with a standard six-speed manual gearbox, while the naturally aspirated 1.6-litre inline-four engine and 2.8-litre V6 were replaced by 2.0-litre, and all-aluminium alloy 3.0-litre units, still with five valves per cylinder, the most powerful of which was capable of 220 PS (162 kW; 217 bhp) and 300 N⋅m (221 lb⋅ft) of torque. The 1.9 Turbocharged Direct Injection (TDI) engine was upgraded to 130 PS (96 kW; 128 bhp), with Pumpe Düse (Unit Injector) (PD) technology, and was now available with quattro permanent four-wheel drive, while the 2.5 V6 TDI high-end model was introduced with 180 PS (132 kW; 178 bhp) and standard quattro. This generation of quattro consisted of default of 50:50 front to rear dynamic torque distribution. A Bosch ESP 5.7 Electronic Stability Programme (ESP) system, with anti-lock braking system (ABS), brake assist, and electronic brakeforce distribution (EBD) were standard across the range.

The Avant was introduced in June 2001 and arrived in European showrooms in September 2001.[citation needed]

For 2002, Audi increased power in the 1.8 Turbo engines to 183 PS (135 kW; 180 bhp) and 190 PS (140 kW; 187 bhp) – the 190 PS variant designated by a red 'T' on the boot lid. Available with four wheel drive and in the 2.5 TDI intermediate version to 163 PS (120 kW; 161 bhp). A 2.0 engine with Fuel Stratified Injection (FSI) was also available. A year later, Audi reintroduced the S4, now powered by a 344 PS (253 kW; 339 bhp) 4.2 L V8 engine, as well as an A4 Cabriolet convertible variant (Typ 8H), finally replacing the 80-based Audi Cabriolet which had been discontinued in 2000. It included an electro-hydraulic operated roof, which lowered in under 30 seconds and incorporated some styling changes, such as body-coloured lower bumper and sill panels, which later found their way to the saloon version. The Audi A4 Cabriolet version was co-developed and manufactured by Karmann[18]

Audi introduced a continuously variable transmission developed by LuK, named multitronic, which replaced the dated conventional automatic transmission on front-wheel drive models. There have been widespread complaints from consumers around the world that the transmission box is prone to electronic glitches as well as mechanical problems.[19][20]

Borrowing from the Audi A6, the boot was redesigned to remove the extension of the top edge with a smoother fold line. The rear light assemblies now formed part of the top line, these styling cues were eventually borrowed by other European as well as Asian manufacturers.[21]

A sport package named 'Ultra Sport' was introduced in the North American market shortly before the B6 was replaced by the B7. It included aluminium interior trim and door sills, "S line" steering wheel, front and rear spoilers, side skirts, and quattro GmbH designed 18-inch RS4 alloy wheels.

Safety[edit]

The Audi A4 (B6 & B7) passed the Euro NCAP safety and crash tests, and was awarded the following car safety ratings:[22]

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) awarded both the B6 & B7 a "Good" rating in the frontal crash test; the B7 was not retested since the front portion is structurally the same.[23]

SuccessorAudi A5 (for A4 cabriolet)

Audi introduced a revised A4 in late 2004, with the internal designation of B7. Although given a new platform designation, the B7 was essentially a heavily facelifted and revised version of the B6, with revised steering settings, suspension geometry,[specify] new internal combustion engine ranges, navigation systems and chassis electronics (including a new advanced Bosch ESP 8.0 Electronic Stability Programme (ESP) system). The front grille assembly changed to a tall trapezoidal shape in the same manner as the C6 (third-generation) Audi A6; however, the dashboard and interior were virtually unchanged from the B6 aside from minor detailing.

Audi's internal platform nomenclature uses PL46 (passenger car longitudinal platform, size 4, generation 6) for both B6 and B7 chassis. The Typ 8E and Typ 8H internal designations are also carried over from the B6 A4 range, but now have an additional identifying suffix – 8EC for the saloon, 8ED for the Avant, and 8HE for the Cabriolet.

The engine lineup received many additions. The 2005 introduction of Fuel Stratified Injection (FSI) on the 2.0 TFSI and 3.2 V6 FSI petrol/gasoline engines, as well as other refinements, increased power output to 200 PS (147 kW; 197 bhp) and 255 PS (188 kW; 252 bhp), respectively. These engines both use a four-valve per cylinder configuration. The prior 5-valve design was incompatible with the FSI direct injection system (due to the siting of the fuel injector, now discharging directly into the combustion chamber). The 2.0 Turbocharged Direct Injection (TDI) diesel engine now combined Pumpe Düse (Unit Injector) (PD) technology with 16 valves, while the larger 2.5 TDI V6 diesel was superseded by a 3.0 V6 TDI, offering a 204 PS (150 kW; 201 bhp) model during the year 2005 which was upgraded to a 233 PS (171 kW; 230 bhp) model in 2006. A 2.7 V6 TDI was added later.

Torsen T-2 based quattro permanent four-wheel drive remained as an option on most A4 models. Audi retired its 5-speed manual transmissions in favour of a new Getrag 6-speed. As before, multitroniccontinuously variable transmission (CVT), now with selectable 'seven-speeds', was an option on front-wheel drive models, whilst a conventional ZF6HP 6-speedtiptronicautomatic transmission was an option on the quattro four-wheel drive models.

In addition to the Audi S4, which carried over the powertrain from the B6 S4 – Audi reintroduced the quattro GmbH developed Audi RS4 (RS for RennSport) to the lineup, for the first time on the saloon/sedan and Cabriolet body, and with a naturally aspirated, but high-revving 4.2-litre V8 FSI engine. Another notable[according to whom?] inclusion on the RS4 is the latest generation Torsen T-3 Quattro 4wd system, which uses a 'default' asymmetric 40:60 front-rear dynamic torque distribution bias. This new asymmetric center differential was initially only available on the RS4 but was added a year later on the S4. The remainder of the B7 A4 range still used the T-2 50:50 default dynamic split center diff.

A variant, developed by quattro GmbH, was first introduced in May 2005, named "Audi A4 DTM Edition". It was inspired by Audi's race cars of the 2004 Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters and was reintroduced in 2006 as a regular option. The 2.0T FSI engine received revised software mapping to the ECU, which increased the output to 220 PS (162 kW; 217 bhp) and 300 N⋅m (221 lb⋅ft) of torque. It was available with front-wheel drive, or Quattro four-wheel drive.

The B7 Cabriolet model arrived later than the other two body variants, being first shown in late 2005 and with sales beginning in February 2006. New on the Cabriolet was an entry-level 2.0 TDI version, which was not offered with the Multitronic CVT gearbox. The Cabriolet version was produced by Karmann until February 2009.[25]

In 2007 Audi introduced a version of the B7 named the 'Special Edition', which built on the S-Line specification and also included the black optics pack, the RS4 style 8J X 18 '7-arm double-spoke' design alloy wheels, Two-tone Graphite/Black Volterra leather, 3-spoke sports leather/Alcantara multi-function steering wheel with gear knob and hand brake handle in Alcantara with silver stitching, ventilated cross-drilled front disc-brakes, black tailpipes and black roof rails (Avant model only). It also had a power increase of 20 PS, giving an output of 220 PS on the 2.0T model.

According to 2007 Swedish vehicle inspection data, the Audi A4 Avant with diesel engine is the most reliable vehicle available on the market, with vehicle inspection rejection rate of 0.0% in three-year-old category.[26]

SEAT Exeo[edit]

Main article: SEAT Exeo

When the successor B8 A4 range was introduced, the B7 series A4 was restyled and rebadged as the SEAT Exeo in 2008 with changes to the front and rear plus interior trim from the A4 Cabriolet. The entire Audi B7 A4 production line from Audi's Ingolstadtplant was dismantled and sent to Volkswagen Group's SEAT factory in Martorell, Spain.[27]

Audi released the first official pictures of the B8 series A4 in August 2007 and unveiled the car to the public at the September 2007 Frankfurt Motor Show. Saloon/sedan and Avant (estate/wagon) models are offered. The Avant was unveiled to the public at the March 2008 Geneva Motor Show. For North America's destined models, the B8 continued in production for the 2016 model year, while Europe began deliveries on the 2016 B9 model.

The B8 A4 is built on a variant of the Audi Modular Longitudinal Platform, a platform that is also used in the Audi A5coupé. While prior A4 chassis were limited in wheelbase due to the relationship between the engine, transmission and front axle, the MLP allows for a reduced front overhang, resulting in a greater wheelbase length without the same increase in overall length.[33] This effectively redistributes the centre of gravity slightly rearwards, improving handling by better balancing vehicle mass between the front and rear axles. The estimated static front:rear weight ratio of the B8 A4 is approximately 55:45, depending on body style and engine. The relocation of the steering rack in front of the axle also improves handling over previous A4 platforms.[citation needed] Key to the implementation of MLB is the novel mounting of the differential in front of the clutch. This is achieved by driving the flywheel/clutch remotely by means of a 'top hat' shaped drive plate, between which the differential lay shaft passes, whilst power transmission to the final drive is via an inclined transfer shaft which runs the length of the transmission unit. Whilst the platform retains Audi's "overhung" engine mounting position, the front axle is now 152mm further forward than the previous B6/B7 generation platform.[34] The transfer shaft, however, has the effect of creating a large "bulge" on one side of the transmission tunnel, which on right-hand drive versions forces the pedals to be badly offset, which has attracted criticism from the British motoring press in particular.

The B8 A4 has increased in wheelbase by 160 millimetres (6.3 in) and in length by 117 millimetres (4.6 in) over the prior B7, which has allowed for increased rear seating legroom. Although the overall dimensions have increased, the curb weight has dropped some 10%. The boot (trunk) has also increased to 480 litres (17.0 cu ft) for the saloon (sedan) version. The A4 Avant will have a maximum capacity of 1,430 L (50.5 cu ft) with the rear seats folded down.

Reception has been mixed, with praise for the Audi A4's increased size, giving it best-in-class rear legroom and trunk space in the compact executive car segment.[35] Its inline-4 2.0 TFSI engine, while efficient providing plenty of torque, was considered lacking and less refined compared to 6-cylinder engines of lighter rivals who posted faster acceleration times. However, the Audi S4sports sedan has been well-received for its V6 3.0 TFSI engine's power and efficiency.[36][37][38]

The B8 A4 was facelifted in early 2012.

During a model, cycle changes are made to integrate new technologies and to keep the model competitive. These changes are referenced based on the model year (MY) of the car. In Australia, the B8 has undergone 2 revisions leading to three variants, the B8, B8 MY10[39] and B8 MY11.

The quattro permanent four-wheel drive system uses the latest Torsen T-3 centre differential, with a default 40:60 front to rear asymmetric torque distribution ratio (used first on the B7 RS4) as standard. (Previous A4 Quattro models split torque with a default front:rear 50:50). The additional torque bias applied to the rear wheels helps mimic the driving dynamics of rear-wheel drive cars.

Audi was reported to stop offering 3.2L V6 models in 2010 model year,[48] but still offers them as of August 2011 (Germany).

All petrol engines use Fuel Stratified Injection (FSI), and all diesel engines use the common rail fuel delivery (with a pressure of 1,600 bars (23,000 psi)), with piezoinjectors of their Turbocharged Direct Injection engines.

With the 2012 facelift (the B8.5) came additional 163ps TDIe and TDI Ultra engines, the latter requiring the addition of adblue allowing for cleaner running, both of which fell into the lower emissions tax bracket for the UK, yet presenting a significant performance improvement over the base 136ps and mid-range 143ps models.[49]

Transmissions[edit]

In 2009, Audi announced the seven-speed S-Tronicdual-clutch automatic transmission as an option for A4 in the UK and European markets.[50]

All A4L models include Speed 8 multitroniccontinuously variable/manual transmission, except for A4L 3.2 FSI quattro, which includes Tiptronic automatic transmission.

Volkswagen settled a class-action lawsuit in 2013 involving the failures of the CVT transmission in its Audi A4 and A6 automobiles for model years 2002–2006.[51]

Equipment[edit]

Standard equipment on the B8 A4 includes:

  • LEDdaytime running lights (on some models);
  • MMI system (Multi Media Interface) (multi-mode interface of driver information and entertainment systems); (3rd generation MMI expected in vehicles produced from week 22 of 2009). Standard system (Audi Concert/Symphony models) does not include navigation or Bluetooth connectivity (or Bluetooth audio streaming - applicable to 2012 facelift onwards, B8.5 models)
  • Electronic hand brake
  • Speed sensitive power steering ('servotronic' – on some models)

A4 TDI concept e (2008)[edit]

It includes a common rail 1,968 cc (120 cu in) TDI diesel engine rated at 120 PS (88 kW; 118 hp) and 290 N⋅m (210 lb⋅ft), a stop-start system and regenerative braking. It can achieve a fuel consumption of 3.99L/100 km (58.95 mpg[57]) and CO2 output of 105 g/km. It can accelerate 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in 10.7 seconds, with top speed of 206 km/h (128 mph).

Other features include electric motor-based power steering, revised aerodynamics, low-rolling-resistance 225/45R17 tires, and electric actuation of the rear brakes.

The car was unveiled in Paris Motor Show.[58]

Facelift (2012–2015)[edit]

Avant (facelift)

Sedan (facelift)

Allroad quattro (facelift)

The facelift model Audi A4 came in 2011. It features redesigned LED headlamps and taillights, front air dam with fog lamps, and closely set twin exhausts. Interior changes include Bluetooth connectivity for audio streaming (nav equipped models only) and a redesigned ignition key. Controls for air-conditioning, infotainment, and power windows gain chrome clasps. Other detail interior changes include larger steering column stalk switches first seen in the D4-series Audi A8 and a simplified layout for the HVAC control panel – for example the temperature setting for the heated seats is now directly set by a single button and is no longer controlled using the MMI dial. The A4 includes a radio with eight speakers as standard, while the MMI navigation system with voice dialogue is optional. A new "Drive Select System" allows drivers to choose comfort, dynamic, individual, or efficiency modes for fuel-efficiency. The power output of the 1.8 TFSI engine is 170 BHP and 320 Nm of torque – up 10 BHP and 70 Nm from the previous versions. Electromechanical power steering is standard.

In Europe, the wide range of Audi A4 saloon and Avant estate are available with the 1.8 TFSI, 2.0 TFSI gasoline engine, as well as 2.0 TDI, 2.0 TDIe, and 3.0 TDI diesel motor. Trim levels are Attraction, Ambition, and Ambiente. In the UK, the A4 range is offered in SE, SE Technik, Technik, S line, and Black Edition model grades. All-wheel-drive Quattro is offered in most engine and grade combinations.

For North America, the facelift model Audi A4 sedan is only offered with a 2.0 TFSI gasoline engine. Model grades are Premium, Premium Plus, and Prestige. The Avant was discontinued, leaving the Allroad Quattro as the only station wagon body style. For the 2016 model year, the A4 and S4 continued in B8 production. The B9 A4 would not reach the North American market until the 2017 model year, while the S4 variant would not be available until the 2018 model year.
