Audi’s A4 range received a minor update earlier this year, but the firm is now readying a more extensive facelift package for the 2020 model year.
Spied winter testing ahead of a reveal in the first half of 2019, this A4 Avant prototype sports some light disguise, but visual changes already obvious include a set of reprofiled lights and bumpers, a wider and lower grille and, at the rear, a new diffuser design. The changes have been conceived to bring the A4 into line with the newer models in Audi’s range, such as the A6.
More extensive changes are expected inside, with the A4 likely to move to Audi’s latest dashboard design demonstrated by the latest A6. This will ditch the current car’s rotary dial control for the infotainment system in favour of a dual-touchscreen layout, splitting the climate controls into a lower touch capacitive display, with the multimedia and navigation functions operated by a larger upper screen.
