The new Audi A4 will launch at Audi Galway, Ballybrit, on Saturday at a starting price of €35,800 on the road,
The new Audi A4 comes with three equipment lines with Xenon headlights featured as standard on all models: Attraction, SE and S Line.
SE prices start at €37,750, featuring additional premium upgrades like twin leather, navigation system and cruise control. S Line additional equipment includes 18” alloy wheels, sports suspension and leather alcantara sports seats, with prices starting at €41,250.
At the front, horizontal lines and the wrap-around hood emphasise the car's width; the dominating element is a broader and lower single frame grille. For the first time, each individual equipment line will have different styled bumpers to further highlight the individual trims. 17-inch 10-spoke alloys are standard on the Attraction line model, while SE and S Line versions upgrade to 17-inch parallel 5-spoke and 18-inch 10-spoke v-design alloys, respectively.
The new Audi A4 will launch with six engines: two TFSI and four TDI conforming to EU6 emissions standards. Their power output has increased significantly over the previous model and ranges from 150 hp to 272 hp, but fuel consumption has been reduced by up to 21 per cent. The A4 2.0 TDI ultra has fuel consumption of just 3.7 litres of diesel per 100 kilometres with CO2 emissions of 95 grams per kilometre.
Thanks to lightweight construction and an intelligent material mix, the all-new Audi A4 is now up to 120 kilograms lighter than the previous model, making it the lightest and most fuel efficient in its class.
The new Audi A4 SE and S Line trims feature an optional technology pack which includes MMI Navigation plus, the Audi virtual cockpit and Audi connect, allowing passengers to go online via an on-board Wi-Fi hotspot with elegant and intuitive controls. For added convenience, the Audi phone box connects smartphones to the on-board antenna while wirelessly charging your phone. With safety in mind, the Audi Smartphone interface allows you to control third-party apps, like Facebook or Twitter, from buttons on the steering wheel or via Audi’s latest “touch-to-talk” voice control system. The pack is priced from €2,500.
Audi’s Vorsprung durch Technik claim is further characterised with the optional business package. From €2,100, the package features driver assistance systems such as adaptive cruise control, Audi lane assist, front and rear parking sensors, and high beam assist for a smoother and safer driving experience.
