The 2019 Audi A4 model year update has been unveiled. It’s a mid-life update for the German automaker’s premium sedan and will go on sale in Germany from Q3 of 2018. The biggest change to this India-bound car is the face that now includes an updated grille and chrome inserts on the fog lamp housing. It’s the second element that really gives the car a major update in the looks department.
This updated A4 also sees the S line competition equipment package making its debut. This sees the blade in the front bumper and the stone-chip guard strip in selenite silver, an RS rear spoiler on the A4 Avant and, among other things, the new Turbo Blue paint finish.
The four rings logo is in the lower section of the rear doors, in either silver or black, depending on the exterior paint colour. The equipment package also provides customers with sporty technology features – Audi Sport 19-inch wheels, red brake callipers, sport suspension and LED headlights.
In the interior, the S line competition builds on the S line black interior package, supplementing it with RS carbon inlays, a three-spoke multifunction steering wheel and black partial leather sport seats. Alternatively, customers can also opt for S sport seats in magma red or in other colours.
This updated A4 in sedan guise is expected to come to India in Q1 of 2019 and will be offered in both petrol and diesel engine options. The car will be locally assembled at Audi’s facility in Aurangabad. The A4 competes against the BMW 3 Series, Jaguar XE and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.
