Audi is currently working on a next-generation A4 sedan which will ride on the automaker’s new MLB Evo architecture. We’ve already seen pre-production photos of the A4 testing ahead of its debut, and CarScoops has caught the car out once again, this time undergoing some cold weather testing.
The new A4 will be 200 lbs lighter than the outgoing thanks to the use of high-strength steel and lightweight aluminum, and should also have improved driving dynamics as a result. The car will also have several new Audi technologies including its LED Matrix lighting system, an available e-quattro plug-in hybrid powertrain and Audi’s virtual cockpit.
Audi’s 2.0-liter TFSI turbocharged four-cylinder engine will find its way under the hood of the next-gen A4, along with 1.4- and 1.8-liter turbo fours. Both 1.6- and 2.0-liter diesels should also be on offer in select markets, along with a 3.0-liter V6 TDI and a 3.0-liter TFSI gasoline engine.
More information on the new A4 should become available following its debut either at the Geneva Motor Show in March or the Frankfurt Motor Show in September.
