Theophilus Chin has decided to implement a floating roofline design on the recently unveiled 2016 Audi A4 Avant. He calls this a “buttlift” taking into account all of the digital manipulations have occurred at the back where the blacked out D pillar gives the premium compact wagon the impression it has a floating roofline.
Some people have criticized Audi for making the new A4 Avant look a lot like its predecessor even though underneath the familiar skin is basically a brand new car. This virtual interpretation makes the car looks lightly more interesting and it would probably bring more customers into Audi’s dealerships, but it’s high unlikely they will offer something similar in the future.
We remind you the brand new 2016 Audi A4 Avant will go on sale in Europe this fall, shortly after makings its first public appearance in September at the Frankfurt Motor Show. It’s up to 120 kg lighter than the old car even though the proportions have increased a little bit. The wheelbase has grown by 12 mm so the interior cabin is more spacious, especially for those sitting in the back. It’s also more practical as the trunk’s size has grown to 505 liters with the rear seats up and to 1,510 liters once you fold them down.
