2016 Audi A4 Review

This ninth-generation A4 clearly applies the same ‘if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’ design principals that its super sports sister brand Porsche uses on the 911.

Get up close though and the changes become a little more obvious. The new A4 gets the latest single-face grille, which also appears on several other models, including the latest Audi A3, TT and Q7 SUV and looks cleaner and more sophisticated than the previous open-mouth styling.

The 2016 A4 is also slightly longer and wider, offering more overall space inside the cabin. There’s a new, more masculine clamshell-style bonnet that rounds out to a stronger character line running down the entire length of the car.

The rear profile centres on the rear spoiler stamped into the boot lid, which adds to the A4’s tougher all-round stance, along with sleek new Adaptive LED headlamps – standard across the entire A4 range.

Despite the increased dimensions and longer wheelbase, lightweight construction methods mean the new A4 is up to 65 kilograms lighter than its predecessor. The body itself is one of the lightest in class and weighs 15 kilos less than the previous model.

In fact, everywhere you look there’s weight-saving engineering in play. The mounts for the front MacPherson struts are highly integrated aluminium castings that reduce the weight by eight kilograms compared with the same components made of sheet steel.
