Audi is preparing for the launch of the new generation of the A4 which would be available in sedan, Avant, S4, RS4 and Allroad versions. Based on the many spy photos of the A4, our associates Jean Francois Hubert/SB-Medien have created a new render illustrating precisely what the A4 Avant will look like.
Audi is known for its evolutionary approach to exterior design, with each generation looking much like the previous one. However, while the new A4 will remain instantly recognizable as such, it will become sexier and sportier thanks to Audi’s new design identity.

Compared to the outgoing A4 which was facelifted in 2019, the new generation will have a shorter and wider Singleframe grille, a more sculpted bumper with taller air intakes and more aggressive headlights with LED graphics. inspired by the e-tron GT. The coating on the profile will be cleaner, and the rear shoulders more pronounced than before, reminiscent of the RS 6 Avant. Other new features include the new hood line that no longer touches the headlights and the slightly sportier window line, as seen in our previous renders created by Josh Byrnes.
Inside the cabin, we expect a technological overhaul, with a digital cockpit borrowed from Audi’s EV models. That means the widely used 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster could be joined by a much larger touchscreen for infotainment, bringing more connectivity features to the A4. Audi will also equip the model with its entire ADAS suite, especially in the high-end versions.

Dubbed Audi’s latest ICE-powered model in the segment, the A4 will ride on an upgraded version of the MLB architecture. Engine options would include a 2.0 TFSI mild-hybrid gasoline engine and a more efficient plug-in hybrid powertrain with increased EV range. Audi will continue to offer the A4 with a quattro option that will be standard in the crossover-style Allroad.
The S4 was spotted in testing with a V6 TFSI which will likely get some sort of power assist in the new generation. As for the RS4 performance flagship, it’s expected to feature a plug-in hybrid setup, similar to the upcoming Mercedes-AMG C 63 rival and unlike the pure-ICE BMW M3 Touring. For those who prefer BEVs, the automaker will also offer the all-electric A4 e-tron which will be a different model, sharing its PPE architecture with the larger A6 e-tron.
The new Audi A4 is expected to debut before the end of the year, with a market launch in 2023. Rivals will include the new generation of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class which debuted last year and the BMW Series 3 recently unveiled. Both also come in more practical wagon bodies that retain their popularity as an alternative to bulky SUVs.
