Sporty look: the exterior design. The midsize model looks even more dynamic and sophisticated thanks to the sportier design highlights. The Singleframe grille is now broader and flatter; horizontal lines emphasize the width at the front and rear. The side view is defined by the distinctive muscles above the fenders and the lower set shoulder line in between. They form strong contours above the wheels and make the quattro genes outwardly visible.
LED headlights now come standard in the Audi A4; the top-of-the-line headlights feature the Matrix LED technology with fully automatic high beam. The equipment line concept is equally new: basic, advanced and S line are now available for the exterior, not to mention the independent look of the S models and the A4 allroad quattro. Customers can choose from 12 paint colors, including a new terra gray option.
In the calmly styled interior of the Audi A4 the horizontal lines also convey the overall impression. In the center of the instrument panel, slightly tilted toward the driver, is the large MMI touch display, the control center for the new operating system. The new interior packages: design selection and S line interior can be combined freely with the exterior lines and come with numerous colors and materials. The contour/ambient lighting package adds highlights to the interior in the dark.
With its new MMI system the highly connected Audi A4 offers a user experience similar to a contemporary smartphone. An MMI touch display with acoustic feedback replaces the functions of the previous rotary/pushbutton control on the center tunnel console. The high- resolution TFT display measures 10.1 inches. Its graphics are deliberately clean and cut-down; the menu structure with its tight hierarchies is tailored to user expectations and facilitates ease of use. The MMI search is based on free text input and returns hits rapidly. The natural- language voice control, another function of the new system, understands many of the phrases used in everyday speech.
