Distinctly sportier A4 saloon and Avant models take to British roads this month
The special Audi division tasked with designing exceptional performance cars such as the RS 4 and RS 6 has now turned its attention to the latest A4 range, creating a new Sport specification which can be ordered for all saloon and Avant variants from this month.
- New A4 Sport models developed in conjunction with Audi specialist high performance division quattro GmbH now available to order
- Updated Sport option pack replaces previous Sport option for all saloon and Avant models and costs £1,400
- Revised version of 1.8 T four-cylinder petrol engine with 190PS replaces 163PS version from this month
- Tax-beating EU4 compliance for 163PS and 180PS versions of 2.5 TDI engine
The new quattro GmbH A4 Sport models carry a price premium of £1,400 over their standard equivalents in each case. They are marked out by a striking new look courtesy of body coloured front and rear bumpers, an extended front valance with enlarged air intakes and integrated fog lights, side sill extensions, a restyled rear bumper and a subtle rear spoiler. 17-inch ‘Five Spoke Star’ alloy wheels continue the performance-oriented theme, as do sports suspension, sports front seats with electric lumbar adjustment, a sports leather steering wheel and leather trimming for the gear knob and gaiter. Six-cylinder versions also gain rear electric windows and aluminium window trim strips.
The revised A4 Sport models can realise the potential suggested by their new look, thanks to a wide choice of powerful and sophisticated four and six-cylinder petrol and TDI engines. Highlights of the petrol range include a responsive 3.0-litre alloy block V6 with 220PS, an advanced direct injection 2.0-litre FSI four-cylinder delivering 150PS with outstanding economy and emission control, and a recently updated, 190PS version of the popular turbo charged four-cylinder 1.8 T engine.
