Multiple prototypes are caught in action, revealing four-cylinder and V6 soundtracks.
We’re on the cusp of seeing the sixth-generation Audi A4. It’s certainly time, as the current model debuted in 2015 for the 2016 model year. Amid sedan sightings, we’ve seen occasional Avant test vehicles out and about in both A4 and S4 trim. This time, instead of snapping photos, our spy crew clicked record for some video footage.
Multiple prototypes are spotted here, all wearing the same level of camouflage wrap. We don’t see any hard coverings beneath, but placeholder taillights are still in place. A couple of vehicles feature a single-exit exhaust with twin tips, one of which emits a clear four-cylinder sound as the driver pulls away. Another test vehicle sporting dual exhaust at the corners also makes an appearance. We believe this is an S4 Avant, further supported by larger black wheels with big brakes behind them. And when it pulls away, the sound is more in-tune with the 3.0-liter V6 used in the current S4.
