Second generation Audi A4 was launched in India back in September 2016. Back then, the German automaker continued offering the new model only in petrol variant as the new 2.0-litre diesel engine is reportedly built for Euro VI-compatible fuel which is yet to be introduced in the country. Due to recalibration, the company claims that the engine is now compatible with the lower grade BS IV fuel in the country and will be launched next month in India.   

Audi A4 diesel variant will be powered by the new EA288 engine that claims to generate 187bhp of power, which is about 15bhp more than its predecessor. The vehicle will come mated to S-Tronic seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox along with a six-speed manual option which is also likely to be offered. The current 1.4-litre turbo-petrol engine generates around 148bhp of power.   

As for the interior, as seen in the upgraded petrol version, the upcoming diesel variant will also get the new interior with new dashboard layout and panels. The vehicle will get a large TFT display on the centre along with other interesting set of features like dual zone climate control, rear AC vents, advanced MMI infotainment system and much more. Post launch, the new model is expected to compete against the likes of BMW 320d and the Mercedes C220 d.
