Default Scoop! Next-gen Audi A4 (B9) caught on camera

Next gen A4 has been spied for the first time wearing a significant amount of camouflage.

The test mule seems to be having a lower front and a longer rear, while the exterior mirrors have been entirely redesigned. Also note the line above the door handles seems to be closer to the window frame.

New A4 will adopt an upright "three-dimensional" front grille along with better defined wheel arches.

Expected reveal sometime in 2015

I can see that the headlamps are near to what BMW had don't with their 3 series - starting from the grille.

The hood has become longer and the car looks lower also.

The Next Gen A4 will probably be based on the Volkswagen group MQB modular platform, just like a Golf or Skoda Octavia.

Quote:
Rumor has it that extensive use of aluminum and ultra high strength steel will increase the rigidity of the car and shed up to 100 kilos lighter, offering a curb weight of about 1,330 kilograms.
Also it suggests that the engine range available from launch will start with a 1.4-liter TFSI rated at 150, which will be offered with cylinder deactivation.
A bigger 2-liter TFSI will also be available with around 220 hp. A number of 2.0 TDIs will make up the bulk of sales, with outputs ranging from 140 PS to 190 PS.
Finally a plug-in version combining a 2.0-liter TSFI engine and an e-quattro electric motor will also be offered.

New Audi A4 coming in 2015, to be lighter and have more luggage capacity than the current car and could be lighter in the range of 100kg as compared to the current base Audi A4.


The fifth-generation Audi A4 will feature three body styles -- a sedan, a wagon and an Allroad variant which would follow later. The next-generation A5 coupe, Audi RS5 coupe and Sportback models will follow in 2016.

Quote:
The next Audi A4 will get distinguishing features such as a 3D-effect single-frame grille, new-style trapezoidal LED headlamps, and bumpers with a heavier crease and a prominent shoulder line running along the length of the car. The new Audi A4 is expected to feature sharp creases on all of its bodywork. The new Audi A4 will remain close to the current car in terms of dimensions; luggage capacity is expected to increase thanks to better packaging.
Engine line-up will include a wide range of four and six cylinder petrol and diesel units. Most of the engines on offer will feature cylinder deactivation tech.

Latest report suggests the A4(B9) launch has been delayed to make modifications to its styling, suspension and assistance systems.

Now the expected launch is pushed to summer 2015

Your opinion has been noted by Audi. They have postponed the launch for styling too.

In addition to your comments on styling , a plug-in hybrid model is being asked to be adapted as soon as possible and requested changes on the carís chassis and driver assistance systems.

Cheers!

Now spotted @ the Nurburgring;

Scoop! Next-gen Audi A4 (B9) caught on camera-b9.jpg

Before there are any questions why this car looks exactly like the current A4, answer remains simple as its a development mule. Development mule’s often test new technology in an old body, meaning they look like old models but actually they’re completely new

Really surprised to see such a goofup at the end of Audi.
The rear looks a lot like the facelifted A8 rear end.
