With a new BMW 3 Series on sale imminently, development of the 2020 Audi A4 is already well underway – that’s despite the car getting a facelift earlier in 2018. Expect changes to this 2020 model to be more significant with a revised interior and new mild-hybrid engines. Keep reading for the car’s price, specs and release date.
2020 Audi A4 price and release date
The 2020 Audi A4 is expected to be launched at the end of 2019 and to go on sale at the start of 2020. Expect prices to rise slightly from the current model that starts from £28,000 for the saloon and £29,000 for the Avant estate. A popular S line model with a desirable mid-range engine, four-wheel drive and an automatic gearbox will be closer to the £40,000 mark.
2020 Audi A4 specs
While the A4 was facelifted in 2018, expect the changes made to the 2020 Audi A4 to be much further-reaching. Despite the heavy camouflage of this test car, it’s clear that the new model will get revised headlights that lose the notch that is incorporated into the lights of the current model. Front and rear LEDs are likely to be standard and you’ll also be able to upgrade to matrix LEDs that’ll have a sequential start-up sequence – as seen on the Audi A6 and A8 – when you unlock the car.
The biggest changes are likely to be seen on the inside though, where the 2020 Audi A4 is set to get the stacked touchscreens first seen on the A8. They make the cabin feel significantly more modern and will feature haptic feedback – to mimic pressing regular buttons – that’ll make them easier to use on the move. The upgraded infotainment package is also set to see the 2020 Audi A4 and A4 Avant get the company’s Virtual Cockpit as standard. It’s a huge screen that replaces the regular dials behind the steering wheel and can transform into a massive map that is great to look at and also makes it very easy to follow the sat-nav’s directions.
While all these revisions will be easy to spot, changes under the skin will be less obvious – that said, the 2020 Audi A4 is set to get mild hybrid technology. Made possible by a 48V electrical system, the 2020 Audi A4 will get a small electric motor that’ll act as a starter but will also be able to boost performance away from the lights and improve fuel economy by around 5mpg.
