Keeping in mind the launch of the BMW 3 series in India, Audi India has preponed the launch of its New Audi A4 to May 3, 2012. The New Audi A4 was expected to glide through Indian roads early next year. The luxurious sedan has been given a complete makeover. The new Audi 4 has been introduced with a major exterior and interior styling. The front facia seem to have adorned with maximum number of changes.  The curved lamps of the predecessor have been replaced by new edgier headlights.  The rear end changes include an all new LED graphics lamp and a refreshed bumper. The jaw of the car is also more streamlined with all new bumpers and grille. The interiors, as always give you an air of sophistication. By getting a new way of operations, the Multimedia interface system has been simplified along with new LED elements. As far as comfort is concerned, nothing less than high level of luxury can be expected from the new Audi A4. The new Audi A4 will be launched in India, in both petrol and diesel model. Not only limiting the makeover to the change in designs, new engines have been introduced. In the international market, the German car maker offers a total of 6 diesel and petrol engines that have forced induction as well as Audi’s patented FSI direct injection technologies. In India the New Audi A4 will be launched with 2.0 L turbocharged petrol engine and 2.0 L diesel engine, though the 1.8 L TSFI unit will be missing. The petrol engine coming to India will deliver 18 bhp of power, whereas the diesel unit will produce 158 bhp. The Audi’s Quattro all-wheel drive technology, which provides superior traction and handling and a balanced drive no matter the road condition, would be found with all engines except the 1.8 petrol motor. The FWD variant of the 2.0 L diesel engine may also be launched in India in order to offer a highly fuel efficient model in the country. Sports differential with torque vectoring will come with the variants that are powered by V6 engine in order to improve their handling. Consumers will even get options in the gearbox which will be the six-speed manual, the Multitronic CVT gearbox, and the seven-speed DSG unit called the S-Tronic. An eight-speed automatic will be available in some markets across the world, but might not make it to Indian shores. Addressing fuel problems, the new Audi A4 has been launched with electromechanical steering systems. The new A4 also gets automatic start/stop, brake energy recuperation and other features that make it consumer power only on demand. This makes it 11 per cent more fuel efficient than the outgoing A4.
