Default 2012 Audi A4 Facelift - Now unveiled!

Quote:
Audi recently unveiled the A5 facelift and now it's time for the A4 to go under the knife.
Sporting heavy camouflage, the prototypes feature a new grille, modified bumpers and restyled lighting units. The overall styling tweaks are minor, but give the model a closer resemblance to the A5 and A6.
Engine options will likely carryover, but the 3.2-liter FSI will likely be replaced by the new supercharged 3.0-liter TFSI V6 with 272 PS (200 kW / 268 hp).

The car in front is the estate version whereas the other car is a sedan. They were testing both.

No string of pearls but a cohesive line of LEDs. Will look as good or better be rest assured.

I am sure that I have seen this car on Mumbai roads last week but, the camouflaging is very very confusing for anyone to identify the car, unless it has stopped at a signal. The only way I guess we could identify is by looking at the steering badge.

Mind to check the start date of that thread and this

I'll make it easier. That was started on 3rd September 2011, that is exactly a month after I started this on 3rd August 2011. So which one needs to be merged?

Arrow Re: 2012 Audi A4 Facelift - Revealed!

Audi has officially unveiled the 2012 S4/A4/A4 Avant facelift.

Quote:
Looking more aggressive, the Audi A4 adopts a new front fascia with a revised grille, restyled headlights and a modified hood. There's also a new diffuser, revised taillights and a dual exhaust system. For a sportier appearance, the S-line package has a reduced ride height and 18-inch alloy wheels (19-inchers are optional).
Inside, the cabin gains a new steering wheel, revised trim and additional chrome accents. Other changes include an updated infotainment system and buttons for the heated / cooled seats.
Under the hood, the Audi A4 has a variety of engines available. The 2.0 TDI has outputs of 136 PS (100 kW / 134 hp) and 163 PS (120 kW / 161 hp). Another four-cylinder diesel produces 120 PS (88 kW / 118 hp), 143 PS (105 kW / 141 hp) and 177 PS (130 kW / 174 hp). Last but not least, the 3.0 TDI develops 204 PS (150 kW / 201 hp) and 245 PS (180 kW / 241 hp).
On the petrol side, a new 1.8-liter TFSI produces 170 PS (125 kW / 168 hp) and 320 Nm (236 lb-ft) of torque. Other choices include a 1.8 TFSI with 120 PS (88 kW / 118 hp), a 2.0 TFSI with 211 PS (155 kW / 208 hp) and a 3.0 TFSI V6 with 272 PS (200 kW / 268 hp).
Notably, the Audi S4 has a supercharged 3.0-liter TFSI V6 with 333 PS (245 kW / 329 hp) and 440 Nm (324 lb-ft) of torque. It enables the S4 sedan to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 5.0 seconds, before hitting an electronically-limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph). In terms of efficiency, owners can expect to average 8.0 L/100 km (29.4 mpg US / 35.3 mpg UK).
On the handling front, the Audi A4 has a revised suspension and a new power steering system which "requires no energy for straight-ahead motion, thereby reducing fuel consumption by up to 0.3 L/100 km."
The 2012 Audi A4 will go on sale shortly and pricing has "changed only slightly."

The silver reminds me of Jetta!

It was high for Audi to reveal it since its competition already have their newbies out.

And hope they stick to the 170bhp version since even the Passat has a 170bhp engine.

What a dampner, was quite looking forward to this one, but by the looks of it all they seemed to have done is come out with a honey i shrunk the A6 a bit edition. The charisma and character of the B8 A4 is lost. Can't see this one being a future classic. Also i think Audi has done us a great injustice by not bringing the S4 or the Quattro option on the TFSI in India, hope the new ones at least come with the same, would save face a bit.
