Codenamed “B9,” the new A4 will ride on Audi’s new MLB modular architecture that will use aluminum and composite material to help the car lose between 200 and 250 lbs. The front end of the new A4 looks to take its styling cues from the recently revealed Q7 with its more angular design.

This same platform, also known as the MLB Evo, will eventually underpin the majority of Audi’s lineup, with the new Q7 being the first vehicle to use it.
Like the current A4, a range of gasoline and diesel engines will be offered with the car along with a plug-in hybrid setup. An A4 Avant and a sporty S4 will also be available, while an RS4 is a likely addition.
The new A4 will debut at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show in September.
