Photos of the new Audi A4 facelift, both Avant and sedan, have already surfaced before and we’ve already seen plenty of both. However, this is the first we’re seeing any video of either car and they just so happen to be caught playing in the snow together. In this new spy video from Motor1, we see both the Audi A4 Avant and sedan facelift, wearing heavy camouflage, doing some winter testing and they both look good.
It’s one thing to see photos of a car and it’s another to see video; watch it move about and go through its environment. Here, we can see that the new facelift does make the A4 look better. At the front, it’s cleaner and sharper, thanks to its new headlights, that lack the current car’s little notches, and its slimmer grille. It also gets taillights more similar to those of the Audi A6 and they look much more premium than the current car’s.
What’s interesting is that the Audi A4 Avant in this video seems to have a sort of honeycomb pattern in its grille, which looks very good but is typically reserved for Audi Sport models. And we know this isn’t the Audi RS4 Avant because it has simple rectangular exhausts, normal wheels and too high of a ride height. So we wonder if the standard A4 will be getting the more aggressive grille.
We’re also hearing that the A4 facelift will be coming with some significant interior changes as well. While we don’t know what sort of changes will be made, we can have a guess. It’s likely that it will get Audi’s new generation of Virtual Cockpit, with its crisper graphics and faster processing speed. It could also get a new steering wheel and some new trims and what not. But another big change that could happen is the switch to Audi’s new Touch Response MMI.
Now, it’s not going to get the dual touchscreen setup seen in the Audi Q8 or A7 but it could get a similar setup to what’s in the Audi Q3. In that car, it gets a single touchscreen for the infotainment system but physical knobs and buttons for the climate controls. This would make a lot of sense for the A4, as Audi wouldn’t saddle its volume selling car with old-school tech while cheaper and newer cars like the Q3 came out with better tech. Though, we’ve heard nothing official of the sort, so don’t get too fixated on that. Pure speculation on our end at the moment.
Overall, though, this new Audi A4 facelift, both Avant and sedan, look better than before and we’re excited to see them in the flesh.
