Audi UK Launches Sportier A4 Model, Offers New Power Levels and Higher Performance at Reasonable Fuel Consumption Rates.
New A4 has added S Line to its moniker in the United Kingdom. S Line, available in all A4 models, takes the SE model spec to the next level. SE has apparently, been the sporting kit choice of the British for a very long time. S Line gives the cars an understated aggression by for example, the following changes: suspension rides 30mm lower than in the standard car, it has extended body side skirts, takes 18-inch 5-spoke wheels, sports a multi-function steering wheel and sporty brushed aluminium inlays.
At the same time, Audi UK has added a new 1.8TFSI engine to the A4 lineup, a completely new engine to the old workhorse that was found in just about every VW Group product of old. This 1.8 TFSI makes a heady 120 bhp/ 89kW. Therefore its 0 – 100km/h time comes to 10.5 seconds, with a top speed of 130 mph/ 209km/h and average fuel consumption figure of 39.8 mpg.
Audi’s CVT solution, the Multitronic gearbox makes its debut in the new A4 as well where it’s mated to a more powerful version of the 1.8TFSI (here we go again) that produces 160 bhp/ 119kW. A combined figure of 37.2 mpg is achievable for this unit. OTR pricing for the new engine starts at £19,890/ €26,757 and S Line starts at £23,490 /€31,596.
