With the launch of Audi A4 in the mid 90’s, the German car maker made quick progress in attaining the global recognition to the A4. The best of the car was the well-designed cabin, all fresh interiors and wonderful handling and the option of 2-wheel drive or 4-wheel drive with Quattro technology. The most characteristics people love in the car is the European design and sensibility, inner ambiance which are provided by the panel gaps, first class materials, and comfortable seating. Audi redesigned the A4 for 2009 year which was one of the best cars than ever before. The redesigned car is much huger in all aspects than its predecessors. The width was increased by 2.1 inches and length was increased by 4/6 inches. The wheelbase was increased by 6.6 inches longer. Even with changes in its physical design, Audi A4 remains the best choice for many drivers as it still maintains the same old good handling and nimbleness.
The 2009 version of the Audi A4 also features new version engine – a 2.0 liter, turbo-charged 4 cylinder engine which develops a whooping 211 Hp. The other new features that have been added to the newest model include a set of audi bc racing coilovers. Also a set of daylight LED lights that were formatted from the Audi A8 car, which has now become another trademark for Audi. With the addition of lighter and stronger parts, more resistance to the wind and more spacious cabin, Audi A4 is sure here to stay for a quite long time. Audi’s engineers have made great progress by reducing the AC consumption by 20%, which in turn decreased the fuel consumption by 10%.
Apart from the interiors, Audi has made many changes by adding on few extra technological features. They introduced the Adaptive cruise control system, blind spot detection, a rear-view camera, and the Audi drive select, which allows the driver to choose dynamically the suspension system and steering, to make it more usable as a cruiser or either as a sports sedan. In a recent survey conducted, many have voted Audi as their top choice as a family car and the second runner up was the bc racing is300 vehicle that was presented by lexus in 2015.
With the launch in UK market with the saloon segment, Audi has planned to launch their Avant version into the UK markets next April. With the release of this version, the availability of the Audi A4 Cabrio will be reduced. The plans are to introduce a convertible version of the Audi A5 coupe in place of the Cabrio. Also, Audi has made it clear that it will not build more than 1 RS model. So the RS4 may be delayed for some time now. Audi has launched a new model of the life cycle, and they would like to wait for at least two more years before launching the RS series.
But there can always be a change in the plan. Replacing the popular A4 Cabrio with the new series A5 will result in no more sales of the RS4 Cabrio, an important model that has been high in sales in the US markets. Nonetheless, there are small similarities and differences between the models, which you can decide on based on personal preference.
