Audi is due to reveal an all-new Audi A4 next year, equipped with hybrid power, a new design and a revamped interior. We’ve spied the forthcoming Avant estate model during cold-weather testing in Sweden, revealing cleaner, evolutionary styling over the current A4.
The front end has been mainly decluttered with a sharper set of headlights and a narrower radiator grille, sitting above a neat lower grille arrangement. There’s a pair of slim vertical cutouts below the headlights, too, while a smooth bonnet replaces the a lot more heavily styled item of the outgoing A4.

The surfacing along the side of the automobile is cleaner than before, too, without the razor-sharp creases of recent Audi models. This Avant estate features a steeply raked rear window and an integrated roofing spoiler for a sportier look – the rudimentary tail lights of this pre-production automobile will be replaced by a set of LED units for the final car.

The cabin will get a extensive rethink, too. We’re expecting a new dashboard with even fewer physical controls and a redesigned centre console with new toggle gear selectors, as the next A4 will probably only be available with an automatic gearbox.
