A trio of latest generation 2.0-litre TDI engines characterised by frugality and refinement is now available for the Audi A4 following the recent introduction of a third, 170PS version of the highly regarded common rail piezo-injected four-cylinder unit. The new Audi A4 2.0 TDI 170PS slots in to the Saloon and Avant ranges above the recently introduced 120PS and 143PS versions and is available in front-wheel-drive and quattro all-wheel-drive forms priced from £24,600 OTR.
With an output of 170PS, and 350Nm of torque delivered via a six-speed manual transmission from just 1,750rpm, the front-wheel-drive A4 2.0 TDI 170PS combines the ability to touch 62mph from rest in 8.3 seconds and continue to 143mph with 53mpg-plus economy potential and low CO2 output of 140g/km.
The new unit will be available in combination with SE or S line specification, each offering features including three-zone climate control, a 180-watt Concert CD audio system with 6.5-inch colour display and automatic headlight and wiper operation. Xenon headlamps with the LED strip daytime running lights that are now synonymous with Audi are reserved for the more performance oriented S line versions with their exclusive S line body styling and sports interior.
Audi UK has enjoyed an exceptionally rapid rise to prominence in the premium sector. Since 2000, when just over 43,000 Audi models found homes in the UK, the brand has consistently broken its annual sales records year-on-year, and in 2007 successfully passed the milestone 100,000 sales barrier. It is continuing to perform exceptionally well in a declining market by extending its reach into important new segments with strong offerings such as the A3 Cabriolet, A5, RS 6, Q7 and R8, and by consolidating its presence in its traditional heartland with core models like the all-new A4 and A4 Avant
