Audi A4, the elegance, charm and emotional sport, an important part of the Audi brand. And now the project has become more clearly defined and hits on all models – sedan, Avant, Allroad Quattro and S4.
The new look accentuates the horizontal lines on the forehead. The hood is bent, the upper corners of the grid inner cone, and the cross rib and Audi rings are highlighted three dimensions. The grille is painted gray, glossy black on the six-cylinder models or in combination with S line exterior package. The bumpers are redesigned with their striking air inlets angular, their schedules revised and flat front fog lamps. Audi A4 allroad quattro is distinguished by its chrome grille and horizontal applications by the round fog lights.
The lights have changed, slightly wavy on the bottom and internal reorganization. Xenon plus are available on request, Audi. LED daytime running lights are narrow, optically homogeneous band will remain open in the vicinity of Xenon lens. Adaptive light with dynamic and static cornering lights are available on request.
The tail lights reflect the shape of the headlights, xenon and in combination with LED strips are more homogeneous. The bumper diffuser insertion has been redesigned, with the exhaust system always ending with two exhaust pipes.
There is a choice of 15 body colors, including four new shades. The sedan and Avant, the S line package offer abroad, while the front also includes a roof spoiler.
The amendments changed the dimensions of a few millimeters. The Audi A4 sedan and each has a length of 4.70 meters (15.42 feet), while the A4 allroad quattro and S4 are 4.72 meters (15.49 feet) long. The wheelbase for all models are 2.81 m (9.22 ft), and the width is 1.83 meters and 1.84, respectively (6.0 and 6.04 meters). The height varies between 1.41 and 1.50 meters (4.63 m and 4.92), depending on the version of the body.
The interior of the Audi A4 has also been refined. Audi offers a wide range of new steering wheel with chrome bright and advocacy with Sports leather steering wheel also has a flat edge lower. The steering arm and the ignition key has been changed. Applications to high-gloss chrome trim and elegant control adds elegance inside.
Finishing operations developed makes it even easier and more intuitive. MMI Navigation Plus system now has four instead of eight buttons, with a script function included in the volume control dial. Other improvements include the operation of the automatic transmission, effective climate control, Audi drive select and the multifunction steering wheel. The seat heating and air conditioning is now operated directly on the respective buttons.
A high level and quality of work is as much a matter of taking over Audi in different colors so sure. All interior colors – except for black – is again a co-ordinated. Range of coatings has been revised, with thin leather Valcona change in nappa leather. A new cluster trim piece has been adapted for the interior color, when the lists are available in aluminum Trigon, walnut brown, fine-grained and natural ash. Particularly striking Beaufort inlaid oak veneer.
The interior of the S line sports package is available in black, refined, high quality applications. 18-inch wheels or optional 19-inch wheels and S line sports suspension that lowers the body 30 millimeters (1.18) complete the package. Audi exclusive line and options for more individualized Audi exclusive offers.
The trunk of the Audi A4 sedan still has its 480 liters – 962 liters with the rear seats folded (16.95 and 33.97 cubic feet). A4 Avant A4 allroad quattro and has 490 liters and 1430, respectively (17.30 and 50.50 cubic feet) with Audi offers an optional power liftgate for both models.
Transmission System The new Audi A4 sets new standards. Consumption levels have been reduced by 11 percent on average, despite the increased power and torque of most engines. In the saloon and Avant each, Audi offers a TDI six and four petrol engines with 23 possible combinations of engine-transmission. All engines are turbocharged direct injection systems: the Start-Stop and recovery is the norm.
TDI engines pulling power combined with an efficiency of pioneering four-cylinder versions with significant changes. A new centrifugal pendulum absorber type (on 2.0 TDI 100 kW, 120 kW or 130 kW with quattro) in the dual-mass flywheel makes the engine runs even more refined and quiet at low speed, even before savings and increased of 0.2 liters per 100 km.
The most economical variant of the family model is the Audi A4 2.0 TDI with 100 kW (136 hp). At Sedan, this engine only 4.2 liters of fuel per 100 km (56.0 mpg U.S.) on average – the equivalent of only 112 grams of CO2 per km (180.25 g / mile). The new A4 2.0 TDI with 120 kW (163 hp) is also optimized for maximum efficiency, control, with 4.4 liters of diesel per 100 km (53.46 mpg U.S.). This corresponds to 115 grams of CO2 per km (185.07 g / mile). Both engines are available for the sedan and Avant.
In addition, three other four-cylinder diesel engines available – with 88 kW (120 hp) 105 kW (143 hp) and 130 kW (177 hp). They can also be ordered from the allroad quattro, outside the entry-level version. Three V6 TDI units complete online. The 3.0 TDI 150 kW (204 hp) (not for the allroad quattro) is the most powerful six-cylinder engine in its class worldwide; A4 Sedan it consumes on average only 4.9 liters of fuel per 100 km ( 48.0 mpg U.S.). The second variant, the 3.0 TDI generates 180 kW (245 hp), with a particularly clean diesel version.
Audi A4 series also features the latest state of the art technology in gasoline engines. A new pic of the family TFSI is the new 1.8-liter engine available for the sedan and Avant. The four-cylinder engine delivers sporty battery with a power of 125 kW (170 hp) and 320 Nm (236.02 pounds ft) of torque. The average consumption of the Audi A4 sedan is limited to 5.6 liters per 100 km (42.0 MPG US), or 134 grams of CO2 per km (215.65 g / mile). This is a decrease in consumption by 19 percent over the previous engine.
The new 1.8 TFSI engine has many innovations in the control of its valves and lift, in the novel thermal management system, the injection system, turbocharger and the integration of the exhaust manifold to the cylinder head. The engine weighs 3.5 kilograms (7.72 pounds) less, and the internal friction is greatly reduced.
The motor gasoline is the entry-level 1.8 TFSI with 88 kW (120 hp). The 2.0 TFSI – the only spark-ignition engine is also on the Audi A4 allroad quattro – delivers 155 kW (211 hp). Above the line is the 3.0 TFSI in two variants. The Audi A4 V6, to follow a little later, delivering 200 kW (272 hp). Audi S4 in the sport at the top of its power is an impressive 245 kW (333 hp).
The wide range of powertrains is typical of Audi. A six-speed manual transmission is standard on the sedan and Avant models with front wheel drive, most of the variants offers continuously variable multitronic as a possibility. The quattro versions with manual or (as the 2.0 TDI 130 kW (177 hp)) the seven-speed S tronic on board. Audi A4 allroad quattro uses a manual or S-Tronic with all versions of the engine.
The innovative thermal management system shortens the heating phase of the manual transmission, among other things, reducing friction losses. All transmissions are characterized by easy operation and precise, high efficiency and wide dissemination of gear – long ratios in the gear reduces fuel consumption, while the shorter ratios in the lower gears for the benefit of the dynamic .
Quattro permanent four-wheel drive is standard on the Audi A4 Allroad Quattro, available in sedan and Avant and 2.0 TDI with 105 kW (143 hp). Family using A4 self-locking center differential here. Shot on a regular basis especially to transmit the report engine torque to the rear wheels 40-60. If necessary, re-allocation takes place as soon as possible. Full torque vectoring feature the work of the center of the difference between good race brake applied, so that the handling even more precise and safer.
In alternative V6 quattro Audi offers the sport differential as a complement, the loan maximum precision and high traction for A4 cornering at the limit handling. The device delivers high-end active power between the rear wheels as needed.
The chassis of the Audi A4 is impressive with a precision sport, comfort and safety of high quality. The mountains of the control arm rear suspension and damping characteristics were further refined. Most components of the five-arm front suspension and trapezoidal rear suspension arms are made of aluminum.
Electromechanical power steering is new in all models in the series. Gear ratios for direct contact to transmit the exact street, dragging a little fight actuations the edge of a slippery uneven. Electromechanical power steering does not require any energy to right to move forward, which reduces fuel consumption by up to 0.3 liters per 100 kilometers. This corresponds to reducing CO2 emissions by up to 7 g / km (11.27 g / mile).
Another feature upscale Audi A4 gives a special status in its class is the Audi drive select. The basic package, the driver can pass characteristic of the accelerator, the crossing points in automatic transmissions, power steering and automatic climate control four modes “comfort”, “auto”, “dynamic” and “efficiency”. If there is an integrated navigation system, it is extra “individual” mode is also included.
In addition, the modules are optional – Adaptive Cruise Control, Adaptive Cruise Control, sport differential, suspension shock absorbers control and dynamic control. Using a planetary gear overlap, gear ratio is continuously adjusted according to driving speed, time limits for processing of small interventions to compensate for understeer and oversteer.
All FWD models of the unit based on the Audi A4 electronic stabilization program (ESP) with electronic limited slip differential. The driving dynamics of the system improves handling and safety for a minimum start-up interventions to the front wheel braking, which is subject to a reduced burden on the inside of the curve. The brake wheel of fortune – with ventilated discs front and rear in many variations – provide excellent stopping power and can be modulated with precision.
All variants of the Audi A4 assembly line-style aluminum wheels. Depending on the engine version, which is 16 or 17 inches in size, optimized rolling resistance 205/60 and 225/50 are in series. The A4 3.0 TFSI has 18-inch wheels with 245/40 tires series. Line options varies from 19 inches with 255/35 tires series. Four of the 18 wheels are available for new designs. The A4 allroad quattro offers four independent models.
Audi offers well-developed family support A4, to make driving even more relaxed. Standard on all variants is the driver information system with the new recommendation to break – it detects and draws attention to the driver of differences in driver behavior on the basis of the typical movements of the address and other parameters.
The control system maintains the adaptive cruise Audi A4 with a constant distance from the vehicle ahead at speeds between zero and 200 km / h (124.27 mph). If the threat of a rear-end collision is imminent at speeds below 30 km / h (18.64 mph), the system will perform a full stop. Audi Lane Assist actively helps the driver maintain its course. A camera detects lane markings, and the system makes minor corrections to management if necessary. Audi side assist monitors the area behind the Audi A4 by radar and record all vehicles in the blind spot, for example.
Saudi infotainment system offers a complete set of state of the art infotainment systems for the series A4. The chorus CD radio with eight speakers is standard, while the MMI navigation plus system with large color display hard drive, 3D graphics and DVD player is high end. Voice Command and Option Digital Audio Broadcasting, further improvements of the system.
The additional premium to MMI navigation plus system is a Bluetooth car phone online. Audi connect via the system provides special services in the car, such as voice-activated Google search for POIs and navigating with images of Google Earth, Google Street View. Audi traffic information line, a second such service, provides the operator with the latest news on congestion on the road. WLAN hotspot, another feature of the Bluetooth car phone online which gives passengers in the Audi A4 to surf the Internet and send e-mails they want with their mobile devices.
The Audi S4
Audi S4, available in sedan and Avant, using the line of more efficient engines – 3.0 TFSI with 245 kW (333 hp) and 440 Nm (324.53 pounds-ft) of torque. Average consumption is only 8.0 sedan liters per 100 km (29.40 mpg U.S.) – an impressive performance: Audi S4 5.0 seconds to accelerate from zero to 100 km / h (62.14 mph) and reaches a Maximum speed is electronically limited 250 km / h (155.34 mph).
Modified Audi S4 is a recognizable change in the headlights, bumpers, air vents and colors. Interior also includes minor changes in appearance. S sports suspension and 18 inch wheels for S4 showed a superior grip.
