This is a prototype of the 2020 Audi A4. The sedan is definitely getting some changes for the next year, though, since it hosts camouflage just in the ends the car will likely receive just a mild refresh. Moreover, the completely redesigned model has been introduced some in 2015, so it’s too early to talk about any drastic changes.
According to the newest reports, the 2020 Audi A4 will likely get a new front fascia with totally new and more angular air intakes. The carmaker may also reconsider some small updates of the grille, as well as refreshed headlights, while the rear end hosts the completely new trapezoidal exhaust tips. Today’s model, on the other hand, uses oval pipes.
Although we were not able to see what’s going on inside, we are pretty sure that the compact sedan is going to get a totally new dashboard. The updated A4 will have to integrate the infotainment touchscreen in its center stack, so it needs to do something with the dashboard. Of course, the German car manufacturer will also update electronic driver aids, so the car should become essentially better from the current model.
It’s not clear what Audi plans to do with sedan’s powertrain lineup. Though, we are sure that the car is going to keep its 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4 untouched. Meaning, the base version will get 190 horsepower and 236 lb-ft of twist, while the topping model should be able to squeeze 252 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque from the same mill. Judging by the latest reports, the manufacturer will kick out the current 3.0-liter TDI. On the other hand, they will add the 2020 Audi A4 e-tron without any doubt. The version will combine the aforementioned 2.0-liter engine with a 115 HP e-motor.
The refreshed A4 will be introduced in early 2019, so the sedan should become available next summer.
