Most car manufacturers are busy trying to change the look of their vehicles and make them look sportier, sleeker with stylish build. While Audi is no different, the company has retained the classic design for their 2017 A4 sedan which is a wise move.
While a big bunch of car enthusiasts and buyers are turned off by the fact that the car looks almost the same as its older models, those who value nostalgia and conventional design would definitely opt for it without complaining. The 2017 Audi A4 sedan is built on the well-known MLB Evo architecture. At first glance, it may look all the same, but the designers have integrated some minute style changes to it so as to make the car stand out from its predecessors.
The shape of the headlight and the grille play an integral role in making the sedan look sportier than ever. The Bi-xenon headlights with a clamshell hood and single frame grille are some of the notable changes that you could find in this new sedan. It is also bigger in size because of the increased wheelbase measured at 2.82mm. With the help of lighter and sturdier materials, the manufacturer has managed to make the model 265 pounds lighter than the outgoing model.
It is constructed using an astute combination of aluminum and magnesium. The former is used in the front and the rear suspension, which gives it an amazing comfort level even on rocky roads. The magnesium alloy is used for the components used in the transmission as well as the rear seat structure which contributes to the decreased overall weight.
The 2017 Audi A4 sedan will be available in three different engine variants, including two gasoline models and a diesel engine. The vehicle will be powered by a two liter turbocharged four cylinder engine, one capable of delivering 190 horsepower while the other is much powerful rendering 252 horsepower. The third model features a diesel engine with 190 horsepower and 296 lb feet of torque.
Audi uses a seven speed automatic transmission system with dual clutch features. Buyers can choose between a front wheel drive model and the Quattro all-wheel drive. The interiors boast of an impressive 3D surround sound system from Bang & Olufsen, 8.3-inch screen, smartphone compatibility, HUD, Wi-Fi features, LTE support and every latest technology that you could find in the world today. In terms of tech, this is a geek’s paradise on wheels. The model launches in the U.S. in 2016.
