Cosmetically, the 2021 Audi A4 facelift gets several updates. Upfront, it sports a wider, single-frame grille flanked by new LED headlamps with LED DRLs. The front and rear bumpers have been redesigned. The vehicle gets a sporty look with all the edges and creases. On the sides, it gets 17-inch wheels. The rear end boasts of redesigned tail-lamps and gesture-based boot lid opening.
On the inside, the cabin design of the 2021 A4 facelift remains unchanged. However, it does get a few notable changes. The dashboard has been redesigned. The highlight of the cabin is the new free-standing 10.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay & Android Auto compatibility. The centre control comes with a new touchpad instead of the rotary controls. Furthermore, the vehicle also boasts of other segment-first features. These include the Audi Virtual Cockpit digital instrument cluster, electrically-adjustable seats, 3-zone climate controls, sunroof, wireless charging among many others.
Performance-wise, the 2021 Audi A4 facelift witnesses a change. A 2.0-litre turbo petrol engine replaces the 1.4-litre unit. The 2.0-litre turbo petrol engine churns out 190 bhp power and 320 Nm torque. The motor is further linked to a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox as standard which sends power to the front wheels. Furthermore, the vehicle offers 5 drive modes - Efficiency, Comfort, Auto, Dynamic, and Individual. The A4 facelift will compete against the likes of the Mercedes Benz C-Class, BMW 3-Series, and petrol-only Jaguar XE.
