Next gen Audi A4 to unveil weeks before 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show
Audi has disclosed that next gen Audi A4 will be revealed weeks before public debut at 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show. The event which is one of the largest and most significant for global automakers, is scheduled for mid-September, 12th to be precise. Which means, new Audi A4 (B9) will be unveiled by late August or early September, 2015.
Next gen Audi A4 sedan is expected to be based on second generation (Modularer Längsbaukasten / Modular Longitudinal) MLB platform, and shed some weight compared to outgoing model despite probably gaining some length.
Based on a Spanish media report published last month, 2016 Audi A4 will have a long list of powertrains, including three 1.4 TFSI engines, three 2.0 TFSI motors, one 3.0 litre TFSI power house, one 1.6 TDI mill, three 2.0 TDI units, one 2.0 TDI e-tron hybrid variant and one 3.0 TDI version.
Soon after the 2016 Audi A4 sedan rolls out, the Avant avatar will make its presence, followed by new A5 family in Coupe, Sportback and Cabriolet body types. Finally, when the Audi RS4 variant shows up, chances are, it will ditch the naturally aspirated 4.2 litre V8 engine for a new 6-cylinder twin-turbo motor.
India launch of the new A4 will only happen in 2016. Once launched, it will compete with the Mercedes C Class and BMW 3 Series. Price will range from Rs 35-40 lakhs.
