Since the debut of the B9-generation Audi A4, it’s been one of the very best all-around executive sedans in its class. It might not be the sportiest (Alfa Romeo Giulia), nor is it the most luxurious (Mercedes C-Class) but it’s an excellent combination of both. It was starting to get a bit old this year, though, with newer competitors becoming fresher and more modern. So Audi gave it a bit of a facelift to make sure it stays competitive in the segment.
In this new video review from Car Buyer, we get a comprehensive look at the new Audi A4 Facelift and all of the changes made. For starters, it gets a bit of a new look. A new grille features a honeycomb pattern insert, while also featuring the three little vents above it that have been featured in all newly facelifted Audis. It also gets new headlights, which now lack the little notch in them and also feature little eyebrow-like light bars. Out back, A6-like taillights complete the look.
On the inside, the Audi A4 gets a mild update but one that makes a big difference. Replacing the old MMI screen and swivel wheel is the brand’s new Touch Response MMI screen which lacks a swivel wheel altogether. It’s a big upgrade for a car whose tech was starting to get a bit old.
Aside from those updates, though, the Audi A4 is about the same as it was before. It’s a capable, comfortable and all-around nice executive sedan. It’s not going to light your hair on fire, nor will it double as a luxury limo, but it’s hard to beat as an everyday driver, especially now that it has such upgraded technology. It’s the middle-man between sport and comfort. If that’s what you’re looking for, and you like the A4’s new look, it’s the right car for you.
