The 2021 Audi A4 will be a petrol-only model
The 2019 A4 was discontinued earlier this year, due to BS6 regulations springing into action. Audi is about to bring in more features to its luxury sedan, the A4 in 2021. The new A4 can be booked either through Audi’s website or at dealerships against a payment of Rs. 2 lakh.
The design updates on the new A4 will include a wider single-frame grille, a new set of headlamps with daytime running lamps, reworked front and rear bumpers and restyled tail-lamps.
On the inside, the cabin design isn’t wholly updated though it has a few minor upgrades done compared to the previous model. The new A4 gets a bigger free-standing 10.1-inch touchscreen. The new A4 gets physical buttons and knobs for climate control, rather than the secondary display seen in the bigger siblings.
According to the dealers, the new A4 is likely to come in two variants; Premium Plus and Technology. The Technology trim will come with all the bells and whistles including the 10.1inch touchscreen, Audi’s virtual cockpit digital instrumentation, all-LED headlamps, ambient lighting, multi-zone climate control, etc.
It seems Audi has ditched the 1.4L turbo petrol from the previous model. The new car will be powered by a new 2.0L turbo-charged petrol engine producing 190hp. Power will be sent to the front wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic box. A4 will not be offered with a diesel engine this time around.
Although there are no words on the prices yet, we expect it to start around Rs. 40 lakhs (ex-showroom). Once launched, the new A4 will go against the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, BMW 3 Series and the Jaguar XE.
