The Audi A4 has undergone a mid-life refresh focused on subtle styling updates and equipment changes. Applied across both the saloon and Avant estate variants, the visual changes are designed to give the BMW 3 Series rival a more striking external appearance.
SE and Sport models gain a new front and rear bumper design, more pronounced side skirts and a bespoke finish for the grilles. Avant versions add a roof edge spoiler, while other rear-end modifications include a rear diffuser flanked by a revised finish to the exhaust tailpipes.
SE versions gain a new design for their 17-inch diameter alloy wheels while Sport models now have 18-inch versions.
The more upmarket S Line and Black Edition grades will now employ a 3D-look single-frame front-end design with a honeycomb grille, edged by wedge-shaped bumpers with large air inlets, the design helping to guide some front-end airflow past the now 19-inch wheels. These, too, have been revised, as have the rear tailpipes and diffuser.
