2020 Audi A4 Family Getting A Proper Facelift After All (Video)

New video footage of the 2020 Audi A4 Sedan, Avant and its Allroad sibling show the prototype models undergoing winter testing in northern Europe. (Update 3/11/2019)

Even by Audi’s standards, the changes made to the A4 lineup last summer were very modest.

Besides the subtly refreshed bumpers, the addition of new alloy wheels, and some equipment upgrades for S-line models, the A4 sedan and A4 wagon remained virtually unchanged. For most people, the modifications looked more like a 2019 model year update rather than a mid-cycle makeover.

As it turns out, that was actually the case. These new spy shots confirm the fact that the A4 will be given a proper facelift soon. Two Audi A4 Avant prototypes spotted in Sweden undergoing winter testing had their entire lower half covered in camouflage.

That fact alone points at some comprehensive styling updates coming our way. The grille is significantly updated gaining a pointier appearance, while the headlights seem to be totally new. The DRLs integrated into the headlamps have a different design as well, as does the front bumper.

On the sides, the fenders look slightly more muscular to give the car more presence and are an homage to the legendary Audi Ur-Quattro.

Compared to the front, rear end updates are less obvious, with the lower part of the bumper gaining a more aggressive appearance as well as rectangular tailpipes. The taillights seem to be unchanged but Audi will probably fit new ones as the development continues.

Bigger changes will take place inside, as Audi is expected to give the car a dash layout inspired by the current A6 as well as the latest tech available. Powertrain changes are also in the cards for the facelifted Audi A4 but it’s too early to talk specifics. The refreshed model will debut in late 2019 and arrive in dealerships in early 2020.

      A5 won’t get the same treat as the A4 because sales numbers are pretty nice.

  • That refresh might be an improvement (?) in styling, but I can see they are keeping that stupid tablet-like display on top of the dashboard – getting rid of that and having a display like the latest Audis (A6, A8, Q8) would be a real improvement.
