    What Car? Car of the Year / #Audi-A4 / #Audi / #Audi-A4-Saloon-3.0-TDI-B9 / #2016

    The Audi A4 not only topped the billing in its category for Best Compact Executive, but was also voted overall Car of the Year in the recent What Car? magazine’s annual awards presentation event, staged at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London on Wednesday, January 13.

    The magazine’s road-test team singled out the mid-range Audi A4 Saloon 3.0 TDI (218 PS) quattro Sport model, writing: ‘Audi deserves congratulations for the new #Audi-A4-B9 . It brings new standards of refinement, interior quality and technology to the compact executive class.’

    The team went on to applaud the benefits the new A4 reaps from a multitude of cutting edge aerodynamic, aero-acoustic and operating efficiency measures which are brought into especially sharp relief in the V6 versions: ‘With fuel economy and CO2 emissions barely any worse than those of smaller-engined models, the A4 3.0 TDI (218 PS) is the most impressive car we’ve tried of late. It’s only fractionally less efficient than the 2.0 TDI 190 model (officially and in the real world), and delivers the sort of creamy performance and whisper-quiet driving manners that would shame some luxury limos. Put simply, it feels more like a baby A8 than a 3 Series rival.’

    ‘Choosing this year’s winner was anything but easy. The brilliant Skoda Superb came mighty close and Mazda’s latest MX-5 also made the final round of voting. However, when we considered the strength of the competition the A4 had to overcome just to top its class, it simply had to win. It brings new standards of refinement, interior quality and technology to the compact executive class.


    ‘We reckon the 3.0 TDI 218 is worth the relatively small premium over the 2.0-litre diesels for its superior refinement, comfort and effortless performance. Whichever version you choose, though, you’ll be getting an outstanding car’.

    The A4 3.0 TDI quattro 272 S line also took the award in the category for Best Compact Executive over £35,000.

    Audi is now the only car manufacturer to have won the coveted What Car? Car of the Year trophy more than once in the past 10 years, with the A1 and A3 winning the main prize in previous years.

    The impressive showing for Audi, which began with a total of 14 category nominations, also included the Coupé class (£25,000 to £35,000) award for the latest TT 230 Sport while the A3 Cabriolet 1.4 TFSI 150 Sport Nav took Best Convertible (£20,000 to £35,000), the A3 Sportback 2.0 TDI 150 SE Technik was Best Family Car (more than £19,000) and the Q7 3.0 TDI quattro 272 SE was Best Large SUV (more than £40,000).

    New #Audi-A4-B9 unveiled #2015 . The fully re-engineered #Audi B9 A4 looks like another winner for Audi fans… After months of speculation, Audi has unveiled the next generation #Audi-A4 – and it looks fantastic. A ground up redesign, the new B9 is packed with innovative features, new engines and technology.

    Based on the new #MLB-Evo platform, the design has evolved, but without losing the A4’s character. Everything has been sharpened up and the front end features the new ‘family’ wide grille and aggressive lights. It looks purposeful and sporty in both saloon and avant guises.

    The new platform has allowed Audi to save 120kg over the previous model, while adding 21mm to the length for increased head and legroom inside.

    Inside, there’s a new, well laid out, high-quality dash, new seats, #MMI tablet-style display, steering wheel, plus new trim options. The 12.3in virtual cockpit, first seen in the new TT, is also available as an option – a stunning piece of kit.

    The new A4 is also packed with technology, including Piloted Driving, which allows the advanced adaptive cruise control to increase or decrease speed according to the sat nav to maximise fuel efficiency. There’s also traffic jam assist, which will guide the car through traffic at up to 40mph, plus allow for hands-free driving at speeds of up to 8mph.

    Seven new or revised engines are available, all of which boast much improved CO2 and MPG figures, but for us, it’s the 272bhp 2.0 TFSI and 268bhp 3.0 TDI V6 that excites most. Both units should produce rapid performance – and that’s before the tuners get involved. The question is, what engine will the future S and RS versions have? Our sources have confirmed that the S will retain the 3.0 supercharged V6, while the RS will get a new 3.0 biturbo unit, which sounds like a dream for tuning fans.

    The A4 is one of the corner stones of Audi’s line up. From the B5 to the recent B8.5, they’ve proved very popular, so the new model had to be right. We think they’ve nailed it. The 2016 A4 goes on sale later this year, with prices expected to start from around £28k.
