The fifth generation of the Audi A4 was officially presented in 2021 year. The debut site was the international Frankfurt Motor Show. The production of the currently offered Audi A4 is carried out in Germany (Ingolstadt).
It should be added that the German car is produced in two main body styles: a sedan (factory marking 8W2 and a station wagon (factory marking 8W5). For the latter, an off-road version of the Allroad with all-wheel drive Quattro was also created.
Prices from Russian dealers for the Audi A4 sedan equipped with a 16-valve CVKB 2.0 TFSI engine with a capacity of 150 horsepower, paired with a front-wheel drive DSG preselective robot , for the basic set of Advance, start at 2 million 900 thousand Russian rubles or 39 800 US dollars in equivalent.
The German model has a conservative design that will appeal to a large audience of The traditional silhouette has been enriched with elements typical of the latest Audi corporate styling trends, including the distinctive headlights, wide chrome grille, narrow tailgate lights and clearly marked fenders.
Order prevails in the cabin, as in other well-known models of the Volkswagen Grou42 concern. The quality of the materials does not disappoint.
Even after 150 thousand kilometers of run, you will not find visible traces of car operation, however, if the owner takes care of the car. Scratches appear mainly in the center tunnel, where the hardest plastic is.
The clock can be analog or digital (in more expensive versions or for an additional fee). Both the first and the second are highly readable. Nearby is the multimedia screen, which is integrated with the keypad located next to the gear lever, which makes the screen easier to use.
It is not surprising that the Audi A4 is already a representative of the "D" segment, although spaciousness is not the strongest side of the model. Simply put, the same Volkswagen Passat or Skoda Superb (full-fledged representatives of the "D" - class) offer customers much larger salons. As we know, the Audi A4 B9 is a premium class that fights for the buyer not overhead, but with quality. Each front seat configuration provides maximum comfort.
At the back, two people up to 180 centimeters tall can easily fit and make a comfortable journey, moreover, over a long distance. The doorway in the second row could have been a little larger, of course, but the Germans decided to leave everything as it was in the Audi A4 B8.
For reference, note that the Audi A4 sedan offers 460 liters of useful volume in the luggage compartment.
In turn, the station wagon offers 505 liters, which is not much more, but the trunk has a regular rectangular shape, which makes it easier to transport bulky goods. In both body styles, folding rear seats can be counted on as standard (basic).
As for the engine, the basic power unit is a gasoline 16-valve turbo engine 2.
0 TFSI CVKB series with a capacity of 150 horses. For all other fans of gasoline units, the same 2.0-liter TFSI in a chip version is offered, the power of which is brought to 190 horsepower. The 2.0 TFSI engine variant with 190 horses is considered by the mechanics to be the best solution - it is a compromise between high performance and economy of movement.
A more powerful version of the same engine with 249 horsepower offers even better dynamics, but already consumes almost 20% more fuel. Is it worth paying extra for it? This is a matter of individual preference.
For your reference, we note that the Audi RS4 variant is an offer for those who like strong sensations.
The stripped-down 6-cylinder engine of the CYRB series accelerates the car very well, but it requires the utmost care when servicing and greatly increases the maintenance costs during the operation of the car. Therefore, this is an offer for wealthy enthusiasts. It is worth adding here that the RS4 is only available in a station wagon and Quattro all-wheel drive.
The cornerstone of the TDI engine family in this model is of course the 2.0-liter DETA turbo diesel engine, which is also found in the latest generation of the Audi Q5 urban crossover. The fuel consumption of a diesel engine is only 5 to 8 liters of diesel, regardless of the version.
The version of the Audi S4 based on the powerful 3.0-liter diesel engine (3.0 TDI) with 286 horsepower, of course, is an offer for the most demanding supporters German model. It provides better performance, but also consumes more fuel and requires an individual approach during the interservice service (for reference: the same 3.0 TDI is also installed on the latest generation of Audi A6).
The Audi A4 3.0 TDI is a kind of compromise between conventional motors and the best TFSI in the RS4.
The powertrain line of the new Audi A4 is simply thought out flawlessly and has no shortcomings in terms of reliability.
These are designs that have been offered over the years and have undergone many upgrades to improve reliability and sustainability. The approximate resource of 2.0 TFSI gasoline units before overhaul is about 300 thousand kilometers, and diesel turbo engines 2. 0 TDI / 3. 0 TDI can walk up to 400-450 thousand kilometers.
In conclusion, we note that the new Audi A4 B9 model 2021/2022 is the most conservative premium model in its segment. The car is discreet in style, but well made and spacious enough in the cabin. The durability of the power units with which a thoroughbred German is equipped does not cause any complaints from most auto mechanics.
