We already knew that we’d get a new Audi A4 in 2019, but now a leaked Audi product roadmap seems to confirm the car will go on sale in the third quarter of this year.
The new Audi A4 will be one of 18 new or revised Audis coming this year – highlights of which include the new Q4 coupe-style SUV and the all-new A3. While on the surface it may seem like the A4 is only due a mild update, a closer looks suggests changes will be more than skin deep. Read on to find out exactly what that means.
2019 Audi A4 price and release date
The 2019 Audi A4 is expected to land in UK showrooms around August time. The current model starts from £28,000, but the new version will cost a touch more thanks to significant upgrades to the car’s infotainment and mechanical parts. An S line A4 with a sporty body kit, specified with a mid-range engine and Quattro four-wheel drive will likely set you back more like £40,000. For reference, the Mercedes C-Class starts from £29,000, while the new BMW 3 Series kicks off from £33,500, but will be comparatively cheaper as you go up the range.
2019 Audi A4 specs
Although the 2019 Audi A4 might officially be a facelift, the model is in line to get some significant changes, particularly on the inside.
On the outside, the revisions will be subtle, with the refreshed model getting a wider, flatter grille design that’s more in keeping with the look seen on the new A1 Sportback and upcoming Audi A3. As with the front of the car, the back of the A4 gets revised tail lights that are likely to offer a cool start-up function that performs a sequential dance when you lock and unlock the car.
The biggest changes are likely to be seen on the inside though, where the 2019 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. Audi’s Virtual Cockpit looks set to come as standard in the new A4 and A4 Avant. 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 – the 2019 Audi A4 is set to get mild hybrid technology. Made possible by a 48V electrical system, the new 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.
