The front of the new Audi A4 is dominated by a broad, low single-frame grille with a stressed plastic lattice structure, while the contoured bonnet is a powerful statement, and the upper edges of the fenders encompasses almost. A distinctive light graphic drawing meanwhile the headlights with their distinctively jagged bottom. At the top of the housing - - A light guide, which forms two acute angles, the daytime running lights and the flashing light emits from. "Xenon plus" units are series. In addition, Audi offers LED headlights and matrix LED headlights.

The main beam of the matrix LED headlamps produce 12 LED. Provided by the camera on the interior mirror with information on their LED controller as required individually from time to time or it dims addition in each of 64 stages in order to illuminate the road always similar to daylight, without dazzling other road users. In cooperation with the optional "MMI Navigation plus", the cornering light is thanks to the predictive route data already active before the steering angle. Likewise, cool: the dynamic flashing light that runs from the inside outwards in the direction which strikes the driver.

Sporty looks stretched side view of the new Audi A4. The low roofline begins with limousine sink morning on Avant she runs into flat D-pillars. The standard roof rails is finished in black. Just like a sports car, the exterior mirrors are sitting on the door sills. The wheel arches are curved to muscular.

Natural gas drive (CNG):

Audi A4 Avant g-tron (170 PS): The available from the end of 2016 Audi A4 Avant g-tron is the second model after the Audi A3 Sportback g-tron, which the customer can operate with natural gas (CNG). The 2.0 TFSI engine comes to 170 hp and 270 Nm of torque. The tanks for the gas drive sit under the rear section and save 19 kg gas.

The gas consumption of less than 4 kilograms per 100 kilometers in the average mean extremely low fuel costs for the customer. In the NEDC the dual-mode g-tron model runs on natural gas over 500 kilometers. If the pressure in the tank at about 0.6 kilograms of gas remaining quantity is less than 10 bar, the engine management system automatically switches to petrol mode. So in addition more than 450 km will be added.

Dynamics: For front- and all-wheel drive significantly improved

The exemplary handling dynamics is an essential trait of the Audi A4, the give pleasure both on winding passages and with a high level of comfort to be the perfect companion on long journeys. These properties are not precise acting electromechanical steering and the new chassis. In addition, the driving dynamics "Auto" lets every situation "Audi Drive Select" with the modes "Comfort", "Dynamic" and "Efficiency" adapt, which influences the characteristics of power assistance and pedal as well as the optional controlled chassis.

In the petrol of permanent all-wheel drive quattro for the 2.0 TFSI with 245 hp in the diesel from the 2.0 TDI with 190 hp can be had. At most 3.0 TDI with 272 hp all-wheel drive is standard. The self-locking center differential directs during normal driving 60 percent of the torque to the rear axle and 40 percent to the front. If the system redistributes the forces reach up to 70 percent to the front and up to 85 percent to the rear.

As a partner for the drive operates the advanced torque vectoring, which is now active on all surfaces. When cornering at speed, the software function brakes the inside front wheel (the front-wheel drive) or both inner turning wheels minimal (when all-wheel drive) before they can slip through. The procedure is performed even when the driver is just a gas. By the difference of the driving forces, the car turns easily into a curve - the self-steering behavior remains neutral longer, the driving behavior is more precise, more agile and more stable.

The sport differential, optional for the top TDI from 2016 available, optimized handling and distributes the torque via two superposition stages active between the rear wheels. With a fast pace, the system pushes the car literally into the corner, so it eliminates any approach of understeer. His management integrated Audi in the normal working of the driving dynamics system "Audi Drive Select." In conjunction with a navigation system in addition to the mode comes to individual, in which the driver can adjust the individual systems according to his wishes. The sport differential is designed to appeal even faster than its predecessor.

Premiere: Two different suspensions with damper control

For the first time, the driver can choose between two dampers with sensitively responsive chassis systems with damper regulation an alternative to the standard tuning. One is stressed a sporty and designed for more dynamic driving style, the other balanced comfortably.

new Audi A4 B9 2016

Sensors measure the movement of all four wheels, as well as the accelerations in the longitudinal and transverse direction. Accordingly, the characteristic of the damper is adapted to the road conditions and the driving situation. Increased driving dynamics with even greater comfort are the result. During suspension with damper regulation is the comfort version, the body 10 millimeters compared to the standard suspension. In the Sport variant it will be 23 millimeters.

The factory Audi A4 drives in the baseline at 16 or 17-inch lightweight alloy wheels (depending on engine), with the new Lines "Design" and "Sport" are also mounted 17-inch cast aluminum wheels. The offer optional wheels ranging from 18-inch cast aluminum-flow-forming wheels (standard on the "S line" -Sportpaket and in the "Design Selection") up to 19 inch diameter.

Even with the wheel brakes, the technology is widely spread out. The A4 TDI engines use when up to 163 hp and the 190 hp TFSI to the front axle 16 inch floating-caliper brakes. The top engine versions with delay especially lightweight aluminum fixed caliper brakes in 17-inch format.
On the front axle, the ventilated discs at up to 338 millimeters in diameter. At the rear axle an electromechanical parking brake is integrated, which brings new support and start-up functions. The Electronic Stability Control (ESC) presented evolved in many areas. In dynamic mode, the engine intervention is largely deactivated and braking intervention weakened slightly.
