The longitudinal orientation of the front engine along with the trans axle type of transmission comprised the layout of the automobile. The A4 also has striking similarities with the sedan range. The convertible versions of the later generations turned out to be a variant species of the Audi A5 and were successful in replacing the coupe segment. The manufacturing units of Germany, China and Japan are responsible for the assemblage of the vehicle parts. The front engine of the car makes use of the four wheel driving method.
The body types of the various models of the same range differed widely. The sedan had the most elegant and classy appearance and was the first to come into the limelight. It became popular amongst the car lovers especially after featuring in the Frankfurt Motor Show. The Avant was revealed to the public through the General Motors Show in Geneva. The A4L with its long wheelbase gained momentum in the Chinese car market. The launching models possessed the 2.0 and 3.2 FSI and generated an average horsepower of about 180. The Quattro model had a much higher ground clearance with a distinct grill radiator. Roof rails and a stainless steel body are its outlining features.
Daytime LED lights, a multimedia interface that keeps the driver connected with all forms of entertainment systems, an electronic hand brake and a sensitive power steering are the technological equipment on board. There is also the lane departure warning method that provides the lane assists. The adaptive cruising controls and the headlights are some of the alternative options.

Present Facelift and engine
The Audi A4 Avant 18t featured in the Frankfurt Motor Show. The 30 valve V6 engine with a capacity of 2.8 litres was replaced with advanced 12 valve engines that were of the same capacity. The diesel engine made use of the direct injection technology and were turbo charged. It generated about 148hp as a standard. The mechanical gearbox was a part of the accessories line up. The rear lights, door handles, headlights and subtle changes in the interior are all part of the modification that was made to the recent models. The turbine turbo charging technique was also changed in order to minimise cracking caused by heat. Most of the cosmetic changes impacted the other components of the car like the centre console and the bumpers. While the petrol engine vehicles of the series used the fuel injection method, the diesel engines were directly injected with fuel. The different engine specifications imply a significant difference in parameters like maximum power, torque, top speed and emissions.
