Audi has updated its popular A4 saloon and Avant (estate), giving the model a fresh new look and a revised range of engines.

Up front, the car receives newly designed air intakes and a grille that is wider than before. Different trim levels get different looks, too; SE and Sport models get horizontal grille slats, while the allroad quattro estate model receives vertical chrome slats. Meanwhile, performance-oriented S Line and S4 models get a honeycomb grille instead.

The air intake above the main grille also takes inspiration from the one found on the range-topping R8 supercar, as well as the A1 city car.

LED headlights are now fitted as standard to all Audi A4 models, though these can be upgraded to matrix versions as an optional extra.

The interior of the car remains largely unchanged over the car it replaces, though the main infotainment screen has been increased in size, and is now touch-operated – so the dial in the centre of the car that used to control the system has been removed.

In terms of engine choices, everything but the 190hp 2.0-litre and 230hp 3.0-litre diesel powertrains now feature mild hybridisation.

   

There are two new 2.0-litre diesels with 136hp and 163hp, as well as three additional 2.0-litre petrols with either 150hp, 190hp or 245hp. All get mild-hybrid technology.

The S4 model, meanwhile, ditches its old 3.0-litre turbocharged V6 petrol in favour of a 347hp 3.0-litre turbocharged diesel, again with a mild hybrid system.

The new Audi A4 range will go on sale in September, and full prices and specifications are expected to be released closer to that date.
