The 2016 Audi A4 Will Offer More Performance and TechnologyThe 2016 Audi A4 will soon be on sale here at Audi Exchange for our Chicago and Highland Park, IL area drivers. The new upgraded model will be lighter and full of technology. The next generation of the compact luxury car should get fully reengineered for this new model year, so read on to find out more about what to expect from the new version!
The new 2016 Audi A4 will ride on an all new platform called the MLB Evo architecture. The new chassis will use high strength steel, aluminum, and other materials, in order to drop over 200 pounds, compared to the existing Audi A4. This new platform will also aim to improve handling, ride-quality, and cabin noise. An added benefit of lower weight is that the car will require less power to be faster and more efficient overall.
In numerous markets, the 2016 Audi A4 family should be available with turbocharged four-cylinder engines of varying sizes - from 1.4L to 2.0L - but we're only likely to see the 2.0L four-cylinder here in the United States. The A4 will also most likely be available with TDI turbodiesel and V6 variants to provide a wide array of different configurations to suit drivers' needs. We also expect the performance oriented S4 and RS4 versions to roll out as soon as next year. Audi has released no output, performance, or fuel economy figures for any of the next generation models yet, but we're also expecting a few plug-in hybrid models to be sold under the e-tron label, though details are scarce.
Since the 2016 Audi A4 is still far from production, we don't know much about the feature details yet. We expect that the new A4 will come with sophisticated safety, communications, and entertainment options, though, like all Audi models.
