- Mid-life facelift means that the body shell will remain same
- Gets tweaked headlamps, tail lamps and bumpers
- Interior layout will remain same but will get upgrades
Test mules of the new facelifted Audi A4 have been spotted testing internationally as the German car maker readies itself to refresh the sedan. The current generation of the Audi A4 was launched globally in 2015 and had made its way to the Indian car market in 2016.
With the new C-Class already in and the new-gen BMW 3 Series nearing its debut, Audi isn’t the one who wants to be left back. The current-gen car already has the hexagonal grille which is unlikely to be changed but the bumper will get a few sharper cuts to add a touch of sportiness. It will get a new set of alloys, reworked tail lamps and new trapezoid exhaust tips.
Snapshots of the interior haven’t surfaced yet but it is said that the layout will remain the same, including the floating tablet screen. The new-gen A6 and A8 get the touchscreen integrated into the dashboard, but that will ideally arrive in the next-gen A4 by 2021-22. It will continue to get Audi’s virtual cockpit display and all the bells and whistles that the current-generation car enlists.
Since there aren’t many changes, Audi might reveal the A4 facelift as early as in the Q4 of 2018 and bring it to the market in early 2019.
