The new Audi A4 2016 is Audi’s entry in the small executive car market and as far as we’re concerned, it is also one of the best offerings out there. While it doesn’t impress too much with its understated style it surely does impress with one of the best interiors in its class and a selection of very nice engines which not only offer great performance but also good fuel economy. The current model of the car has been around for a few years already so there is going to be a 2016 Audi A4 which is not only going to be a facelift but a completely new model.
