After its 2017 redesign, we only saw a mild shakeup in the 2018 Audi A4 with the addition of the Black Optic Plus bundle and a few new standard features. We expect even fewer changes for the 2019 Audi A4, as we expect it being a carryover. The facelifted Audi A4 has been spotted testing under extremely nearly no camouflage. In spite of appearances, there will be subtle styling differences and a slightly 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 hiding a more extreme facelift, this new version will look nearly similar to the current car. There are changes, if you know where to look– primarily, a modified bumper with new angled lower grilles. At the rear, there’ll be new exhaust tips and a subtle spoiler. Audi has actually favoured not altering the styling too much recently– have a look at how similar the facelifted TT will be to the present car. Nevertheless, the A4 is a huge seller and a handsome car already, so there might not have been much point in a more extensive styling change.
2019 Audi A4 Interior
Just 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 model A4 still has a ‘drifting’ system that sits on the top of the centre console– like in the image above.
That said, the cabin will offer a variety of improvements over the existing car in an effort to keep the A4 fresh and premium-feeling. Software application updates to the infotainment and Virtual Cockpit systems will use quicker response times and slightly better usability, while the A4 will be readily available with extra security technology.
2019 Audi A4 Engines and Driving
Anticipate the new A4 to provide mild-hybrid capabilities that can shut the engine down while coasting, which is thought to improve fuel economy by up to 5%. That might not seem like much, but it will likewise help reduce the emissions figure and, therefore, the road tax costs. It’s highly not likely that Audi will present any new engines, but most will be more affordable and use a smidge more power than the present model.
2019 Audi A4 Price and Release Date
Evaluating by the absence of camouflage 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 start from just above ₤ 28,000. The 2019 Audi A4’s competitors will remain the BMW 3-Series, Mercedes-Benz C-Class, and Jaguar XE.
