Audi has just unveiled the facelift version of their successful A4 sedan and, as previously announced, the next logical step is a new generation, but it seems as though we’ll be receiving the new model a little earlier than expected. The new generation A4 is expected to arrive in Europe in 2014 and in the USA in 2015.
In a recent interview with German magazine, Auto Motor and Sport, Audi Design Chief Wolfgang Egger offered up the first details on the upcoming A4, but they only pertained to the vehicle’s exterior design. He said that the future model will receive more muscular styling and improved aerodynamics, as well as an upright "three-dimensional" grille and better defined wheel arches. That’s about it, but we expected this considering rumors have been stating that future Audi models won’t see any significant changes.
As for the engine line-up, the choices will include a 120 HP 1.4 TFSI, a 178 HP 1.8 TFSI, and a 148 HP 2.0 TDI. Rumors have also stated that a hybrid version is possible.
