The car is going to have similar details that have been added to a couple of sedans that Audi has already released. The car sticks to its previous style and tries to make if work for the new model year like this. Some would say that it is a “love it or hate it” type of a vehicle and that it is better than you turn immediately to its competition if you want a largely redesigned car. But this version of the A4 is all business as usual and comes a combination of sportiness and elegance that graces the top of the line Audi cars.

The most significant change that the Audi A4 receives is its size. The car has been growing in its proportions even since the 1994 model. After then, each car has become larger and larger and the fifth generation A4 is no exception. A larger car with some interesting and updated interior features and a bit of an engine boost as well, that is what the new 2016 model of the A4 has got going for it and the detail specs analysis and the further mentioned of the details you can read bellow in the review.

The car has received a similar updates,  that  Audi Q7 and R8 have gone through as well. With a minor update the Audi A4 is a very good vehicle with some great looks and characteristics. The vehicle designed in the same was as before and uses the complete setup that was present in the previous car. As the design has not changed, the proportions of the car have. The automobile was redesigned with some larger proportions and has grown a bit from the previous car design. It also features some sharper lines which add to the aggressiveness and the aerodynamics of the vehicle. Audi is calling this car the most aerodynamic car in its lineup and with a measured drag coefficient of only 0.23, it can certainly be one.

The front apron has a similar look and retains the fog lamps in the same place as before. The grille and the headlights are as fresh as they could be as they have been remodeled and redesigned to have a sharper look and a new pattern. The hood has also gone through some changes but only slight so it might seem as something insignificant to the untrained eye. The rear is also almost identical as before. It does have a new rear bumper and a slightly shorter and slimmer trunk lid. But the redesigned taillights provide it with a much better and fresher look. The entire update to the image of the car make it seem a bit aggressive than before and gives it a new tone to the exterior feel to the car.

As the exterior does not come with many updates, the inside of the 2016 Audi A4 vehicle made sure that it got the better part of the 2016 update. As the competition has grown larger in its interior offers, so did Audi decided to provide a much better setup this time. The design is still a classic Audi one which you would expect to see from any type of an Audi vehicle, but there are some new parts that you can call new and innovative. The dahs and the center stack are much cleaner now and have a more logical layout. The added 8.3 inch color display screen is a welcomed new addition and a helpful one while the infotainment controls have been placed closer to the center console and are much more reachable than before.

The steering wheel is also completely new and the same goes for the MMI controls. The shifter is similar as in the A8 vehicle but goes pretty well for the setup of the A4 as well. The door panels have also been added this time and provide the car with a more upscale look compared to before. All of the controls have been positioned a bit lower which account for a much useful layout and as they are much more reachable than before and do not affect your driving. There is also an added air vent to the dahs which makes it seem wider, while the aluminum inserts improve the overall look of the cabin. With the larger design of the car there also comes a lot more interior spacing which adds more comfort and pleasure in driving with the new Audi A4 car.

This was an opportunity in the entry-level mid-size crossover that Honda saw and capitalized upon.

The 2016 Honda HR-V interior is downright impressive even for its base LX trim. The interior is devoid of gimmickry as plenty of cozy materials and amenities have been provided.
