New Audi A4 to open innings with 1.4-litre TFSI engine

New Audi A4 to open innings with 1.4-litre TFSI engine

Audi will launch the 2017 A4 later this year and will first offer it with the 1.4-litre TFSI petrol engine. This four-cylinder motor produces 147bhp/250Nm and will get a seven-speed S Tronic transmission. The car will be called the 30 TFSI when it is launched.  

The move comes as a surprise as we were expecting them to bring the A4 with its new 2.0-litre TFSI that produces 188bhp and 320Nm of torque. This engine has replaced the 1.8-litre TFSI across the VW umbrella and it seems possible that they are working on implementing the update for both Skoda and Audi models both of which are produced at the same factory in Aurangabad. We can expect them to launch the A4 2.0-litre variant sometime in 2017.

This will be the fifth generation for the German automaker’s sedan. Derived from the Audi 80 model and for a long time Audi’s entry-level model, this is now the mid-level sedan and slots into their hierarchy above the A3 sedan. It is expected to be priced in the range of Rs 32 lakh to Rs 41 lakh. We have already driven the car and here is the first drive review.

In addition to these petrol models, the A4 will later on also be offered with a 2.0-litre diesel engine that produces 150bhp/320Nm of torque. The only transmission option will be a seven-speed S Tronic transmission.
