Audi revealed today the facelifted version of the A4, one of its most popular models that will hit the showrooms in January 2012 in Europe, while the United States market will get it in June or July as a 2013 model. As you can see form the photos, the 2012 Audi A4 comes with a new set of headlamps, just like the revamped A5, more lines on the hood, a new six-corner single-frame grille (painted gray on the models powered by four-cylinder engines and black on six-cylinder models), a restyled bumper with new trapezoid-shaped fog lamps, a new rear bumper with twin chrome tailpipes, and new taillamps featuring the LED technology.
Under the hood, we find the brand new 1.8-liter four-cylinder TFSI delivering 125 kW (170 hp) and 320 Nm (236.02 lb-ft) of torque.
The average consumption in the A4 Sedan is limited to 5.6 liters per 100 km (42.0 US mpg), or 134 grams CO2 per km (215.65 g/mile). The entry-level gasoline engine is the 1.8 TFSI with 88 kW (120 hp). The 2.0 TFSI engine delivers 211 hp, while the top of the line 3.0 TFSI delivers 272 hp and 333 hp on the S4 (same as before).
Regarding the diesel engines, the well-known 2.0 TDI engine delivers 100 kW (136 hp) and has a fuel consumption of only 4.2 liters of fuel per 100 km (56.0 US mpg) on average – a CO2 equivalent of just 112 grams per km (180.25 g/mile).
