The Audi A4 is one of the best-selling entry level luxury sedans globally and is due for a major revamp soon. It’s arch rival, the 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class is already here and Audi’s urgency to launch the new A4 is imaginable. The 2015 Audi A4 has just been caught on camera on a trailer when it was being transported. Audi usually wraps its cars in brown camouflage in the initial days of testing and you can still easily make out that the car will come with an all new exhaust, a revamped side profile and all new wing mirrors.
The car will be based on the MQB platform, pretty much like a lot of other cars launched by the Volkswagen group of companies. The car will be built with the help of ultra-high strength steel and aluminium which will help Audi make the car about a 100 KG lighter, thus increasing the performance and fuel efficiency. The car will become lower up front and will increase in length with LEDs making their way to headlamps as well as the tail lamp cluster.

The car will get a slew of engine options to make it an attractive proposition to a wide range of car buyer. The car will get a 1.4 TFSI model as an entry level variant which will develop a maximum power output of around 140 BHP. This will be joined by another petrol motor, a 2.0 litre TFSI unit which will churn out about 220 BHP and will be the top of the line variant. The oil burner, the 2.0-litre TDI motor will be available in a wide range of states of tune between 140 BHP and 190 BHP.
Audi might also launch a plug-in variant of the car which will be propelled by the 2.0 litre diesel motor teamed up with an e-quattro electronic motor. The car will be about 4701mm in length, 1862mm in width and 1437mm in height. It will come with an upgraded MMI infotainment system with the rear view mirror coming with a display unit as well. Audi will be giving its entry level luxury sedan all it has to make it worthy enough so that it can give a tough competition to the likes of the BMW 3-series, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class and the recently launched Volvo S60.
