PGA Cars Inc., the distributor of the Ingolstadt-based luxury carmaker, has launched the all-new (B9 generation) A4 sedan.
Bigger and lighter than before, the all-new Audi A4 tries to balance sportiness and comfort in one vehicle. While many may think the A4 just underwent a facelift, it is actually an all-new model from the ground up. The exterior has seen a careful update, mainly up front with the redesigned Audi “singleframe” grille, sleeker full LED headlights with the ever so obligatory LED daytime running lights.
At the back, and the spot-the-difference game is ever so strong. The LED tail lights receive a new graphic design, and the trunk carries a much more stronger rear design thanks to a integrated spoiler design.
Inside is where the most changes are at. Audi really does make the best interior designs in our opinion, and it’s a perfect execution of minimalist design, where less is more. The supremely elegant and modern design is complemented by the brand’s perfect use of materials such as aluminum and/or wood, leather, and suade. Audi’s excellent MMI (Multi-Media Interface) is offered as standard, albeit in the less powerful version with a 7-inch screen instead of the bigger 9-inch option. Navigation is fitted as standard, and info can be fed through the 7-inch screen, or through the 12-inch Virtual Cockpit which is standard, replacing the analog gauges found in the previous models.
Powering the Audi A4 is a 2.0 TDI diesel engine, whereas the 1.4 TFSI and 2.0 TFSI petrol engines will come at a later date. The 2.0 TDI engine is all-new, and is not part of the emissions scandal that has plagued the Volkswagen Group worldwide. It produces 148 hp and 320 Nm of torque, and is sent via a 7-Speed S-Tronic Dual Clutch Transmission towards the front wheels. This combination enables the A4 to sprint from 0-100 km/h in 8.7 seconds, all the way through a top speed of 220 km/h.
The Audi A4 2.0 TDI is priced at P3,850,000
