Audi Malaysia did take longer than usual to bring the new generation Audi A4. The new A4 is 120 kilograms lighter than its predecessor, offering improved performance, fuel consumption, and driving agility. Joining the premium trio from Germany as well as Lexus IS & ES models, Jaguar XE and Infiniti Q50, the Audi A4 is available in three guises - 1.4 TFSI, 2.0 TFSI, and 2.0 TFSI quattro.
Powering the entry level A4 is a 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol four cylinder, which outputs 150 hp and 250 Nm of torque. 0-100km/h sprint and fuel consumption figures stand at 8.5 seconds and 5.2 litres/100km respectively. The A4 1.4 TFSI is priced from RM218,900, with standard features such as 17-inch wheels, 3-zone air conditioning, xenon headlamps, 10-speaker audio system, drive mode selector, keyless entry, and fixed rate suspension.
The Tech pack, retailing for RM25,000, packages the Virtual Cockpit 12.3-inch colour display meter cluster, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, reverse camera, and SD-card navigation system.
The A4 2.0 TFSI has its four-cylinder turbocharged engine tuned to produce outputs of 190 hp and 320 Nm, enabling it complete the century sprint in 7.3 seconds and attain a rated fuel consumption of 5.0 litres/100km. With a starting price of RM248,900, the 2.0 includes LED headlamps, LED taillamps with dynamic indicators, adaptive suspension, and manual sunblinds on the rear doors.
Customers can also opt for the sporty S-Line package which includes sportier looking front and rear bumpers, 18-inch wheels, sports-type front seats and steering wheel, and S-line badges on the door sill and front fenders. The Tech pack in the 2.0 adds adaptive matrix LED headlamps together with items in 1.4 variant’s Tech Pack.
Both of these engines drive the front wheels through the S-tronic dual-clutch transmission with seven ratios and fitted with a wet clutch system.
At the other end of the spectrum comes the new 2.0 TFSI quattro S-Line flagship variant offering an uprated engine tune liberating 252hp and 370Nm to power all four wheels. Capped to an electronically-limited top speed of 250 km/h, the A4 quattro is able to complete the century dash in 5.8 seconds whilst achieving rated consumption figure of 5.9 litres/100km.
The permanent all-wheel drive quattro system by default has a torque bias of 60% towards the rear. The system can shuffle torque as much as 70% to the front and up to 85% to the rear when required.
Priced from RM314,900, the quattro has a different cabin ambience thanks to the leather/alcantara upholstery, complete S-Line appearance package, brushed aluminium trim, and black headlining. The infotainment system also comes standard with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity.
The Tech Pack for the quattro meanwhile packages a 19-speaker Bang & Olufsen 3D Surround sound system, together with the Virtual Cockpit, matrix LED headlamps, and reverse camera.
