The 2019 Audi A4 to be Unveiled in Detroit

The newest 2019 Audi A4 will be officially unveiled at the Detroit Auto Show. But it is still not completely clear what the model brings . Luckily we have managed to find out all sorts of leaked information related to this model.

All in all, the next generation A4 is going to continue the line of rebuilding. Furthermore, their approach remains evolutionary and not at all revolutionary. The usual way of updating that Audi has is to always left you with only two possible choices. Either you love it or you hate it. The same will go for the upcoming A4 vehicle.

The newest 2019 Audi A4 is certainly a car which you will either love or hate. If you have expected it to be a revolutionary model that will account for many new exasperating changes, then you will not like it so much.

On the other hand if you are a fan of a more subdued update, than the A4 is the vehicle for you. Audi continues in the same manner. That means making changes suitable for an update rather than a new generation model. The vehicle is still very much suitable and looks good as it updates in just the right places.

The 2019 Audi A4 Interior Updates

The interior of the car is where the most changes happen. They have updated the infotainment and also added new, modern gadgets while also dealing with the comfort of the car. The important factor is that the interior has gained a lot more changes than the exterior. It has made this car one of the more comfortable Audi models. And that is speaking a lot.

The interior will also benefit from the dimensions growth as the model will feature a lot more interior space. The exterior, on the other hand, will merely have any updates. It will simply add some sharper corners. This will make the model a bit more aggressive. And with the new shape, it will be a bit more imposing as well.

As far as the powertrain goes, the 2019 Audi A4 will feature the standard slew of engines. This will give you a lot of versatility. But we are still not sure which engines will crossover to the American market. All of them are going to be available for the Euro versions. But there might be a separate one offered for the US fans.

All in all, the release date will probably be unveiled along with the car in Detroit. Nevertheless, we have managed to make a review beforehand to get you ready for the unveiling.

When is the Release Date of the 2019 Audi A4 Expected?

The latest news about the 2019 Audi A4 states that the model is going to be unveiled at the upcoming Detroit Auto Show.  But some sources have unveiled the possible release date by mistake. And it appears that we are looking at a release in 2018.

More precisely the model will gain its release somewhere around the second or third quarter of the year. Maybe even somewhere in between. All in all, the company will make it clear in Detroit. We expect some other announcements then as well.

2019 Audi A4 Price Details

They revealed pricing for the 2019 Audi A4 and all of the three trims with all of the shifting options will become available once the release date is established. The new generation models will get a minor tweak compared to the outgoing version. But it is still an acceptable increase when we look at it.

The FWD S tronic models start with the Premium priced $36,000, the Premium Plus is $39,200 and the Prestige is offered for $45,500. Models equipped with a Quattro S tronic will be offered for $40,500 for the Premium, $43,700 for the Premium Plus and $50,000 for the Prestige. Lastly, the Quattro manual models are sold for $40,500 Premium, $43,700 Premium Plus and $50,000 Prestige.

The Design of the 2019 Audi A4

The 2019 Audi A4 is instantly recognizable as an A4 model. This is mainly thanks to the scarce redesign of the exterior. But it is not a bad thing. In fact, this is the successful formula that Audi has been following in recent years. The shape may have not changed, but the model is coming with some sharper angles and lines. This is the way the recent Q7 and R8 models have been made. Besides making this model larger, they also help it get better aero. This will ultimately lower the drag coefficient to 0.23.

The front end of the car got some new and fresh looking headlamps to go along with the new grille which is also the part of the new car. The grille and the lights look shorter while the headlamps got a different kind of a pattern which extends towards the fenders. The newly made hood combines with the mentioned elements and make the whole thing more aggressive.

The 2019 Audi A4 Rear Updates

The rear has also been updated in a similar manner as the bumper is updated and changed and the taillights also getting a similar treatment as the front ones. The bumper is shorter and the trunk lid is slimmer and helps make the rear end look significantly bolder. Even with some changes to the side skirts, the profile of the car has remained almost identical to the outgoing car.

Besides thigs model, they have also been updating the Avant A4 car. It will differ from the base version by adding the same style updates but making the roof feel much sportier. The wagon version is not going to be able to have the same kind of aerodynamic parameters as the sedan did but will manage to get to around 0.26.

The Avant will also add LED and matrix LED headlamps which are offered as optional for both versions of the 2019 Audi A4 car. Maybe the changes are not as spectacular as you have expected them to be but they will do the trick.

Interior Modifications and Changes

The interior of the 2019 Audi A4 is where all the action happened. In fact, this is where the designers made much effort to refresh the car which has been looking very much dated, compared to the Mercedes moles, for example. They did keep a familiar layout that Audi cars are known for but they managed to make the dash and the center stack much cleaner. The infotainment controls are closer to the center stack and the biggest changes is the addition of a 8.3-inch color display.

The designers also took some cues from the Audi Prologue concept and fitted them inside the A4 vehicle. Namely the steering wheel has been transferred from there and also the MMI controls. The shifter is the same as in the A8 model and the controls are brought down so they could be reached easily. Also the changes have been made for the door panels as the added material makes things a lot more smoother and premium looking. The tactically positioned aluminum inserts are very helpful in achieving this.

Thanks to the improved dimensions, the interior of the 2019 Audi A4 has class leading roominess. It boasts the longest cabin out of all sedans in the segment and also offers plenty of shoulder room as well.

Some standard new features are added LED lighting on the inside with new atmosphere color choices, a new interface for the automatic climate control and lightweight seats. Included this time is navigation, WiFi, LTE connectivity touch capability, and free-text search function. There are also optional head up display features as well as Audi’s virtual cockpit which you may choose and add here.

Drivetrain Improvements and Specs for the 2019 Audi A4

The improved engine lineup will certainly benefit the 2019 Audi A4 car. The Euro version will still have a choice of three gasoline and four diesel engines. The starting model is a 1.4-liter TFSI which makes 148 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. Then comes the 2.0-liter TFSI which is available in two variants either making 187 horses and 236 pound-feet or 248 horsepower and 273 pound-feet.

Then come the diesel options with the 2.0-liter four-banger and a 3.0-liter V-6 ones. There are two variants of the four-cylinder version and it makes 148 horsepower and 236 pound-feet or 184 horsepower and 295 pound-feet. The V-6 model can generate 215 horsepower and 295 pound-feet or 268 horses and 443 pound-feet, depending the version as well.

For now there are no mentions about which model is going to be untitled in America, since the release date in the US is a bit further away, but our bet is that it will come with a 2.0 TFSI or the 2.0 TDI one.

Finally, the transmission choices will come to S tronic, Tiptronic and manual gearboxes and the S tronic transmission is available for the front-wheel-drive models.

0-60 mph and Top Speed

With the improvements made to the engines of the 2019 Audio A4 come some improved specs in regards to acceleration. The model is now capable of reaching 0-60 mph in 6.6 seconds approximately, while the top speed is limited to 130 mph.

Fuel Economy Improvements and Stats

There are no exact details to confirm the fuel efficiency of the 2019 Audi A4 for now. Especially for the American market models. As far as some recently announcements said, the 2.0-liter TFSI is supposed to return with a 49 mpg on the highway. They are adding a new consumption method for it. The smaller 1.4 TFSI will probably make 48 mpg. And the 2.0 TDI, is going to have a 21% improvement compared to before, which comes to 63.6 mpg. The exact details will probably drop after the showcasing in Detroit.

Changes in the Dimensions

The size of the 2019 Audi A4 has been updated and it will gain more roominess on the inside making the whole setup even nicer. The length of the car has grown a whole inch, amounting to a total of 186.1 Inches.

The wheelbase added 0.6 inches which will amount to 111 Inches in total. The height is the part which has been left intact and will remain at 56.2 Inches and the width 72.5 Inches. The changes made will also affect the weight of the car and will help it decrease 33.1 pounds. This is going to help the car perform better. It will also gain improved fuel economy which will be paramount in dealing with the rivaling cars.

Safety Measures for the 2019 Audi A4

Safety is still an important part of the 2019 Audi A4. But details about the improvements are still not available. The most that we have been hoping to get is that they are going to transfer current roster of equipment with some appropriate improvements as well.

Autonomous driving features are rumored to be added here and they may be one of the innovations that Audi cars are going to have in the future. This is a prosperous car which might benefit from adding those and it will certainly help having it. The newest safety equipment will be made public soon.

What About Other Cars in the Segment?

Even with a smallish upgrade to the 2019 Audi A4, this car still remains a contender. But the cars that are featured here are used to the high level of competition which this segment demands.

So models like Cadillac ATS and the Mercedes Benz C-Class. The featured German competitors are going to represent the main focus in the segment like they always do. So needed improvements for the A4 were perhaps plentiful. But even with this kind of an offer, we see the car as a tight competitor in the segment. It is also a vehicle which will oppose these models in a very strong way.

2020 Audi S4 Release Date, Review and Info

Offering a confident, well-appointed cabin, understated styling, and a refined performance, the Audi S4 for 2020 is arguably a top choice for anyone searching for a nimble luxury sport sedan with a little extra kick. Its release date should be expected during the second half of 2016.

Some of the defining features for 2020 include an accommodating backseat, a standard AWD system, a smooth and strong supercharged V6 engine, an uptown interior, a compliant ride, and a dynamic handling. Otherwise, the 2020 S4 returns almost unchanged.

The thrilling and spirited S4 sport sedan is actually a combination of an extra shot of performance and luxury. Adding that to the upscale performance specs gets you a sporty fun. To put the figures into perspective, the vehicle comes with a V6 supercharged engine rated at a dizzying 333 hp, which represents about fifty percent more output than that of the A4.

The car’s performance is taken a notch higher by the dual-clutch automated manual system. More so, Audi also provided the A4 with a sport-tuned suspension system which gives the S4 a multitude of performance upgrades like upgraded brakes, sharp, and nimble handling.

What’s more. It comes with a high-quality interior, commendable ride quality, tons of sporting hardware for the sporting enthusiasts, a relatively spacious backseat, and lots of exterior tweaks. This isn’t a car for everyone though, it is meant for people who are looking for elegance, class, and an appealing ride quality.

More can be said about how the S4 is spectacular, however not everything is a bed of roses. Some of the downsides include an unintuitive MMI layout interface, no USB port, and an optional Bluetooth audio system for the Premium Plus trim.

Enhancing the at-the-limit handling by distribution of torque in between the aft wheels is the available sport differential system. This also helps the cornering line which results in the aft wheels adjusting rapidly.

During our own test drive, the Audi S4 was able to accelerate from 0-60 mph in just 4.9 seconds. That’s actually an impressive sprint to 60 mph but both the C400 and 340i do much better. Sauntering to the same acceleration but in 4.5 seconds is an automated manual system.

2019 Audi Q4 Being Released as Part of Audi’s Latest SUV Fleet

.Audi is getting ready for its next release pallet with the 2019 Audi Q4 spearheading the new lineup of SUVs.  One of the most important factors here is that Audi is trying to improve their offer. They plan to bring us an expanded range of SUV models in the segment.

There are a number of cars which Audi has released or announced  as part of their idea to take over the market. This particular SUV will be set between the Q2 and the Q3 variants, with the latter one released recently. The upcoming projects that come out next include the Q7 and the Q8 models. These are coming out within a year. At the same time the Q4 will get its release date a year after those products.

The idea behind the 2019 Audi Q4 is a perfect one. They conceive it as a stylish alternative to these already offered SUVs. Namely the Q2 and the Q3. They aim is a younger fan base. It will be a perfect vehicle for younger families who have just started and want to have more luxury and a vehicle which will fit their age and lifestyle.

The way this car is conceived is that it will use the same kind of a design and the underpinnings of the newest Q3 model. But the main difference between the two is that it will grow in size. The Q3 has already grown. And the Q4 will add a bit more length to compare with the given model. It will compete in the segment as a much bigger and suitable offer.

We have also managed to find out that the 2019 Audi Q4 will also take on the design of the likes of the TT Offroad concept model. This vehicle has been shown back in 2014 at the Beijing show. The new Audi model will take most of its design cues from this car. So in a way we can get a design from the TT Offroad concept placed on a MQB platform from the Q3. And in that combination we get the new 2019 Audi Q4 vehicle.

As far as the assembly of the vehicle, the newest Audi Q4 will take on a different approach. It does share some elements with the Q3 which is currently assembled at Seat’s Martorell facility. At the same time they are going to move production  to Győr in Hungary in 2018. It will help with the production and the development this way and will give the model enough time to be designed.

The prospect of having a car like the Audi Q4 2019 will expand Audi’s roster and bring it more versatility and added options when it comes to the offer they have for the public. It will also bring a new kind of a style that a lot of the fans will appreciate. Of course, the competition is not too happy to see what Audi is cooking so it remains to be seen what their answer is going to be. For now we are expecting the release date and are reviewing this car for the pleasure of our readers.

When is the 2019 Audi Q4 Release Date?

As much as we were hoping to see the 2019 Audi Q4 model, it will not come as fast some would hope it to be. Audi has already planned out their entire lineup and it will all come out at the designated time period. Their plan of the SUV renewal and expansion has already started with the Q3 model which is the first one to arrive and which has also debuted the new look that the Audi SUVs are going to take. Next in line are the Q7 and Q8 models that have already received their release dates and are supposed to come out within this year. After that it is finally time for the 2019 Audi Q4 to see the light of day.

The model is going to be available by the 2019 model season and more information about when exactly they are planning to release it will be available within the future period. The information is still scarce on this one and it is being renewed and updated day in and day out. So expect the information about the release date to take a more solid form after the already scheduled cars appear.

What is the Estimated Price?

Based on the recent announcements, the 2019 Audi Q4 price tag may only be speculated. It is still far off to really determine how much would the real price be and we are only going to get that once the release date gets closer and is completely determined. What we expect is a price of around £28,000 to start with, and compared to the rivaling cars it is a very solid price. In fact it is a very affordable one if you compare it to all the other models on the market and will probably have an advantage based on the price alone.

But still we will have to wait to see what the acutely pricing is going to be once the vehicle is completely established. For reference sake, the major competitors like the Evoque are priced at £30,600, or the Mercedes GLC-Class cars which stand at £36,380.

How will the 2019 Audi Q4 Design Look Like?

As far as we were able to witness, the 2019 Audi will base Q4 on the latest TT Offroard concept. The details from this car are going to be transferred from the model. They will be added to this car and it will make it look very appropriate and desirable. An important aspect of the design is also the part about the MQB underpinnings which come from the Q3 vehicle.

It makes the look of the Audi Q4 2019 a unique combination of both which are going to this car rather unique but will also give it the usual and necessary Audi features. Based on the pictures so far, the car will probably have a curved roofline and it will also gain a  liftback-style tailgate. The model will probably be available in both coupe and hatch forms but those aspects still remain to be seen.

Assumptions about the Interior of the 2019 Audi Q4

There are not enough information to tell us about the interior of the 2019 Audi Q4. We have some ideas on how they plan to do it. But it is still a little bit vague, because they are still working on it. And there are also probably some changes that might come along the way. The likeliest of choices is that they are going to make the interior in the manner of the latest Q5 car. The interior will most likely benefit from other products that are coming out under the Audi. It is no wonder that we are going to see some similarities between the products that we see now and some that are going to come out soon and the newest Q4 as well.

What we can expect to see on the inside of the latest Audi Q4 2019 is a new instrument cluster which will mainly incorporate digital pieces. There is probably going to be a new navigation screen and more smartphone application and accessible connectivity. The instrument display will have a full-HD option while the gesture function control is a big thing which could make its way here as well. A 9.2-inch touchscreen will be great to use here and we can probably expect it to be added for use.

As far as comfort and other materials, they are working on it. But expect to see a usual kind of a setup that any other Audi has. The quality that the designer is offering is often impeccable. So we are probably going to get a kind of a design that people are going to enjoy and like. But at the same time feel extremely comfortable in.

Powertrain and Possible Specs

The powertrain is an interesting aspects of the 2019 Audi Q4. And there are certain announcements already that tell us which one they may use here. The options mentioned so far are a 1.5-liter four-cylinder petrol engine and a 1.5-liter diesel engine. Unfortunately for now, there are no exact output range news. And we are hoping for them to announce them in the near future. The new range of engines will be followed by some old ones. These had an upgrade. These are of course the current 2.0-litre, four-cylinder petrol and diesel options. They  are already using these under the hood of the existing Audi SUV models.

Probably the most anticipated option is the plug-in hybrid model which they have also announced as being within their plans. This version will help save on fuel. In addition, it will generally provide us with a version which will save fuel. And at the same time it will  provide a range of 31 miles on electric power alone.

Also in the works is a performance oriented version, dubbed the RS Q4, which is going to use a 400bhp 2.5-litre petrol engine. This version might not come out at the same time as the base Q4 models and will probably come out some time later after the initial car.

New Technology

The newest 2019 Audi Q4 will just miss on the newest technology offered by the newest Audi cars. Autonomous driving capability is a big thing now. There are a lot of people showing interest in it. But the technology is still under development. As far as Audi is concerned the only car which is capable of using it so far from their lineup is the Audi A8. This will make its way with Level 3 Autonomous Driving Capability.

Audi has created their own branch which will increase the capacity of this new technology. So they have gone and made Autonomous Intelligent Driving GmbH, located in Munich. They are looking for multiple self-driving solutions which will come out first on the A4 model and will probably come with some future ones. The Q4 is a potential candidate. But we are really not sure if they manage to make it available with the technology now. They are mostly still doing to development. Yet, by the time the company release Audi Q4, we might get to see the latest improvements within this technology.

Dimension and Size Increases

One of the thing which has been reported about the 2019 Audi Q4 is that it will increase its size and consequently the length of the car. The Q3 has already reshaped and change the dimensions so we are expecting the Q4 to expand and go beyond that. This means that we are probably looking at a car which is going to be 4500mm long in total. Compared to the Q3, this is an increase of about 110mm. With the given measurements changes the vehicle will slot perfectly in the roster of new SUVs that Audi is prepareing. It will also make a lot of fans happy. The expanded dimensions also mean more room on the inside and more comfort as well.

What are Other Options in the Segment?

The release of the 2019 Audi Q4 is going to be a very good addition to the SUV segment. But it will also shake the competition a little bit. This model should directly oppose the vehicles that you can find here. And will most likely be a praiseworthy choice. The competition has already brought their models to the table. And since BMW has already come out with its X2 other manufactures have followed suit.

So we also have cars like the Range Rover Evoque and the Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class. These are some of the major models in the segment currently. Audi is the last one to enter the class. However, we see them doing it in style and as probably offering the best choice and offer that the class needs. All in all, the 2019 Audi Q4 is the vehicle to watch out for. It will be a major contender once they release it.
