Audi's A4 with a 'brand new design'

Fri Sep 18, 2015 7:28 am

clicky

not that i'm ever going for one, but thoughts?

i think..
1. Audi is growing over bling led spots and defusing them which is nice!
2. Getting over black interiors, advertising light coloured interiors, again nice!
3. much overdue and old-fashioned dash becoming like the A7 which agin i liked!

I don't know if it's just the angle, but the rear reminds me of Kim Kardashians arse.

Yeah you said it better than me. Low and wide  :))
Funny how they made it bigger but lighter, that's a plus.

All the newer models are having to go with the tighter emission regs, so smaller engines, fewer cylinders and more hair dryers.

Only kit cars and 'low volume' production cars escape.

Once Euro 7 arrives everyone (petrol & diesel) has a pee tank and new type CAT/DPF as appropriate.

Euro 8 may be the proper international 'real world' spec which the motor manufacturers don't want as it forces them to do what they are avoiding - at the cost of approx £220 per car - to clean the emissions up.

Not sure about the amount of chrome 'bling' though.  Otherwise it's not too bad.  Cues from other places though.  The back and side profile has a similarity to the 1 series Coupe, and (apart from the vast grille) the font has similarities to my new Skoda. 

At least Audi are looking at the right part of the VAG stable now.... :P :P

I'd rather have the map display in the middle with a HUD for turns etc than the clutter in the binnacle.  Keep that for warning lights and der egobooster (speedo).
