Audi A4 35TDI launched in India: Specifications, pricing and features
You now get a 2.0-litre four cylinder TDI engine inside an Audi A4 that produces 190bhp of power and has been developed to deliver better fuel economy.
Audi has announced another model of its Audi A4 luxury sedan in the form of a diesel variant called A4 35TDI. The new model builds on its predecessor and adds a new engine option to the already popular A4 lineup with prices starting from Rs 40,20,000 (ex-showroom Delhi).
The new engine option adds to the petrol lineup launched in September 2016 and brings a couple of improvements over its previous diesel successor.
The design remains the same as the new Audi A4 with the same sporty elegance and LED headlights along with dynamic turn indicators. It features the same lightweight construction along with an interior that once again is identical to what you get on the petrol A4 including the Audi Virtual Cockpit.
What has changed is the powertrain. You now get a 2.0-litre four cylinder TDI engine that produces 190bhp of power and has been developed to deliver better fuel economy. The 190bhp combined with the 120kg weight reduction lets the new A4 35TDI accelerate from 0-100kmph in just 7.7 seconds with a top speed of 237kmph. The engine is mated to an S tronic transmission and is front wheel drive.
"It is never an easy task to design a successor to a bestselling model, but that is precisely what makes the whole process so very exciting. With the all-new Audi A4 35TDI, we are yet again setting the bar a notch higher. The all-new Audi A4 35 TDI is a groundbreaking synthesis of technology and aesthetics. The technology available on the earlier Audi A4 has been redeveloped so that it yet again defines the benchmark in the segment. With a tremendous response received on A4 30 TFSI, we are now introducing the A4 with a diesel engine which is even more powerful than the previous generation A4. Whether its efficiency, drivability or high-class infotainment, the new Audi A4 35 TDI once again raises the bar in its segment,” said Mr Rahil Ansari, Head, Audi India.
Audi India said that it would launch its EV by 2020 but expressed apprehension due to no policy.
