When the fifth-generation Audi A4 made its grand debut at the 2015 Frankfurt International Motor Show, the world knew that it was in for a great ride. However, amongst the three sleek new models, it was the A4 2.0 TFSI Quattro that caused many heads to nod in approval and eyes widen in appreciation, and it’s not hard to see why. The A4 2.0 TFSI Quattro is definitively a standout, with its five twin-spoke ‘Star’ design cast aluminium wheels and LED headlights with daytime running lights.
Underneath the sporty hood of this rangetopper is a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbocharged engine that delivers 252hp and a maximum torque of 370Nm. Combine this impressive power with Audi’s exemplary quattro permanent all-wheel drive system and you have a sporty beast ready to leap into action on your command. Of course, the A4 2.0 TFSI Quattro truly comes to life on the open roads, effortlessly charging forward from 0 to 100km/h in mere 5.8 seconds before peaking at 250 km/h. It’s at these top speeds that you truly begin to appreciate the all-wheel drive system. Operating with a basic distribution is 40:60 – with 40 per cent of the power going to the front axle and 60 to the rear – the drive torque will be redirected to the other axle in slippery situations. This provides more grip when accelerating, thus ensuring greater safety when navigating in wet weather and on winding roads. With safety ensured, the thrill of handling this steady steed also comes from the seven-speed S tronic dual-clutch transmission that allows you to change the gearshift behaviour of the transmission with the Drive program (D) and Sport program (S) in automatic mode.
To top it off, the sports front seats with excellent lumbar support keep you poised for action while the leather or alcantara upholstery adds that premium touch.
