2014 Audi A4 to be Lighter, More Stylish

Audi engineers are hard at work on the 2014 A4, planning to make the sedan lighter and more stylish to further differentiate it from the upcoming A3 sedan.

The German automaker is hoping to shave around 220 pounds from the A4’s weight with the body losing around 110 pounds thanks to the use of aluminum, magnesium, and plastic components. Inside, the interior will be more luxurious than what is offered now and will come with a more advanced infotainment system.

The 2014 A4 will also come with a plethora of engine choices including a plug-in hybrid variant that will join the lineup a year after the car is launched. Reports have engine choices to include a 1.4-liter TFSI with 150 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque, two 2.0-liter TFSI offerings with 177 hp and 255 hp, multiple 2.0-liter TDI choices with 122 hp, 136 hp, 150 hp, and 190 hp. Lastly, a pair of 3.0-liter V6 TDI engines will be offered with either 218 hp and 272 hp.

As for the plug-in hybrid, it’ll pair a 2.0-liter TFSI engine with Audi’s e-quattro system. The goal is to allow the A4 plug-in hybrid to travel up to 31 miles on electricity alone.

    If that is what it looks like, that isn’t more stylish at all. It is more humdrum and plane. More like the cookie cutter Camry that is infesting all the roads in the US. Too boring to look at. Shame on you Audi. PLEASE, try again.
