This is a great catch

Surprising that Audi testing the A4 in India at such an early stage, just like the Q7 was spotted testing in India much before international reveal.

Yeah! Well had problem uploading the derriere Shot. Here you go I guess they will launch it soon after it gets launched in the international market.

Take a close look at the exhaust/muffler tips placement.

This dual exhaust config was there in the 6cy 3L Diesel & 3.2 FSi (Petrol), compared to the 4cyls having a twin muffler tips like we see here > http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/intern...ml#post3712213 (Scoop! Next-gen Audi A4 (B9) caught on camera)

This clarifies there's a big engine under that mules bonnet

Well then probably the 2L TFSI will have the dual exhaust config.

Spoke to my sales rep at Audi, he assures me that the new A4 won't hit India before Diwali 2016 and is willing to give it in writing. Which is why he is pushing me to get the current gen.

Will send him the link to this thread and let's see what he says. Diwali 2016 sounds too far for an Audi loving market such as ours.

December 2015 launch (and Diwali 2015, if so!) would be very likely and at the very latest Auto Expo 2016 - right next to the Jaguar XE.

It's going to be unveiled at this year's Frankfurt Motor Show. I'd say it will make it to India in the first half of 2016. Not like there is any major localisation; once Audi runs out of kits for the current A4, they couldn't sell it even if they wanted to.

Whatever you do, please buy the new A4 only. The current one has been in production since 2007 and is rather long in the tooth. It will be a 10 year old model next year!

Is that a chrome lining around the car? If so, why?

I hope the 3.0L engine makes a comeback for the A4. If so, it would be the sole car to have a bigger diesel engine in its segment.

I don't like the direction Audi's designs are going in. First, the dead-gorgeous R8, now the decent A4. They need to change the main accents, and give a sportier stance. Just my thoughts.

I too don't like the silver lining on it's shoulders.

And why on earth don't they have rear wheel drive A4's ? The all wheel drive models are only on their top spec variants and that will be too expensive anyways.
