Audi A4 Exterior Appearance

Sleek Styling

Essentially every piece of exterior sheet metal on the Audi A4 has been re-sculpted to provide this legendary luxury sedan with a bolder look than previous models. Providing a more menacing look up front is a restyled hexagonal front grille which is both flatter and wider than last year. Much like its larger A6 sibling, the updated rear bumper of the A4 features more striking sculpting around the exhaust outlets. Designed to increase visibility while enhancing style, every A4 now comes standard with new LED headlights and taillights. Shoppers can also equip their A4 with an impressive selection of alloy wheels ranging from 17 to 19 inches in size. Both confident and capable, the Audi A4 remains a compelling choice for luxury sedan buyers who are looking to stand out from the crowd.

Performance

Standard power for the Audi A4 comes from a 40 TFSI® (2.0T) 4-cylinder with 188 horsepower and 236 lb-ft of torque with front wheel drive. By choosing the available quattro® all-wheel drive system, drivers will enjoy a 45 TFSI® (2.0T) 4-cylinder with 248 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque on the A4. This potent powertrain can accelerate from 0 to 60 MPH in a blistering 5.6 seconds to help invigorate your commute. For even more performance, an available Sport package features a unique Sport suspension with a 23 mm lower ride height and firmer tuning as compared to the standard suspension. Individual drive mode settings in Audi drive select give you the ability to custom tailor your ride to suit your specific preferences.

Technology

As smart as it looks, the 2020 A4 includes an array of cutting-edge technologies. The Audi virtual cockpit features a fully digital 12.3 inch instrument display, giving drivers the ability to customize information such as audio and available navigation, along with access to available Google Earth™. Helping to eliminate unnecessary distractions while driving, an optional heads-up display projects vehicle speed and navigation information directly onto the windshield. Drivers are also able to connect their Android or Apple smartphone to access apps and media by using the standard Audi smartphone interface.

Advanced Safety

Standard across the entire model range of the 2020 A4 is Audi pre sense® basic and city, offering groundbreaking safety technologies. Audi pre sense® city detects vehicles and pedestrians at speeds of up to 52 MPH while Audi pre sense® basic helps secure the vehicle during unusual or emergency maneuvers. On A4 Prestige models, traffic sign recognition uses camera-based system to help detect speed limit signs and displays the information in the available Audi virtual cockpit. The optional top view camera system (standard on Prestige models) provides added reassurance and confidence when maneuvering the A4 into tight spaces.
