Correct, the CVT box of the current A4 is called Multitronic. The new A4 slated to launch in few months will have a dual clutch box, similar to the one in the current Q3.

This car looks very interesting!! Is it worth buying a 3 series now? Even though the model has been face lifted and looks stunning. A new 3 series will be out in 2019! I am confused whether to buy the 3 now only to have a newer model out after a year. I cannot wait a year to buy a car too.

Go for it!

The deals available on the 3 today make it great VFM - given the upward trend in the segment, expect the new 3 to be at a definite premium given it will come after 2 years.

Compared to it's rivals, it is still right up there in terms of features, performance, and quality - and still the preferred choice in it's segment by driving enthusiasts.
Only con is that the interiors are beginning to look a little dated compared to the C Class, and the A4 - however, if the new 5 series interiors are anything to go by, don't expect a huge leap in the newer generation.

Thank you for the feedback, I am actually really liking the interiors with the carbon fiber trim, the M gear knob, the dark simple interiors. Merc interiors are very nice too!

It may interest you to know that the carbon fiber trims are optional extras. Its almost 50k for the gear piece, 50 or so for the wooden trim on the board and all. Im not too sure on its exact details, but I'm sure the carbon trims are extra. If a car comes pre loaded with it, you can expect the price to be increased. Nonetheless, the 320d is a great car. Only downside is no rear view camera i think and, like you said, is due an update soon.
