Audi made the A4 look a bit more sporty.
In the wake of the new A8, A6 and A7, you would expect Audi to update their smallest sedan. And indeed they have, with the 2020 Audi A4. The obvious changes are cosmetic, with Audi refreshing the A4’s face and changing up the interior a bit.
There is a more aggressive front end, with new headlights. The LED running lights now run over the top of the headlight assembly, giving it a bit of a meaner look, if you like that sort of thing. The 2020 Audi A4 also has a pronounced crease over the fenders and nearing the trunk. Weirdly, though, it stops at the doors, as they take on more of a smooth appearance.
As for the interior, you may have to strain a bit to see the changes. The one you will notice is the infotainment system. Audi updated the system with a layout similar to Audi’s other refreshed models. It’s also slightly larger, at 10.1 inches. As The rotary dial command knob is also gone, but that is not necessarily a bad thing. Audi positioned the knob in a weird place, I thought, in front of the gear lever, so it’s a bit awkward to use.
Now, you just have to use the touchscreen or rely on voice commands to get around the infotainment system.
Audi has not officially announced the new A4’s arrival in the U.S. yet. However, Audi announced it will offer six turbocharged engine options in European markets. Power output there ranges from 147 horsepower to 341 horsepower, depending on the model. Odds are, we’ll see the same 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that’s in the 2019 model. That engine produces 188 horsepower and 236 lb-ft of torque.
Audi did not announce U.S. pricing information, but the 2020 Audi A4. That said, we don’t expect the price to budge much from the $39,200 the current model starts at. Pricing for the A4 currently runs up to around $47,500 if you get the 45 TFSI Premium Plus model.
