PGA Cars, the authorized distributor of Audi in the country, has just launched the fifth-generation Audi A4.

It may look similar to the previous model, but Audi is not one to drastically change the design of its cars from one generation to the next. While the profile is retained, the lines are more prominent, particularly the shoulder line. The A4 sports new LED headlights, taillights and daytime running lights, matched to a Singleframe grille that looks wider and lower.

The most noticeable change in the fifth-generation model is the dimensions. It’s larger all around, yet lighter by up to 120kg, through extensive use of lightweight materials. Aerodynamics has also been improved—the A4 has a drag coefficient of just 0.23Cd, the best in its class. The new car’s appearance is capped off with 19-inch 10-spoke V design alloy wheels wrapped in low-profile 245/35 Hankook tires.

Inside, it’s what you’d expect of the brand: a well-designed and functional cabin. The minimal approach appears to have been simplified further despite all the tech-savvy features.

Speaking of tech, the Virtual Cockpit 12.3-inch TFT display, which is seen on the TT and the Q7, is now featured in the A4. The MMI control, used to sift through functions on a 7-inch multimedia screen, has been refined. The interface has an integrated trackpad, where you can spell out what you’re searching for.

Propelling the A4 is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbodiesel engine, delivering 150hp and 320Nm. It’s coupled to a seven-speed dual clutch gearbox. It can reach a top speed of 220kph. The weight savings will also boost fuel economy, which is already good to begin with.

In the handling department, the Audi drive select has been enhanced. The suspension is also newly developed.


The A4 2.0 TDI S Tronic is priced at P3.84 million. Any takers?
