Audi made a few important changes on the refreshed A4 for 2019. The mid-cycle refresh will not include just the regular model, though. Pretty much the same changes will also happen on the sporty variant. We know that thanks to spy shots of what appears to be the 2020 Audi S4 Avant. The amazing wagon has been spotted camouflaged a few hours ago, and here’s what we think it’s going to happen:
Exterior changes for the 2020 Audi S4 Avant
The prototype features camouflage all over the body, but this doesn’t mean that the German automaker intends to change everything. On the contrary, most of the styling changes for the 2020 S4 Avant will happen at its ends. The mighty wagon definitely hides a new and lower grille, which seems to be wider as well. In addition, the carmaker will replace today’s teardrop elements with a new headlight design, while the rear hatch should include new graphics for taillights and nothing else. Of course, Audi will add several new exterior colors and most likely restyled wheels.
The refreshed cabin should feature the redesigned dashboard with a new infotainment screen which is going to be repositioned. So far, the display was on top of the dash, but the 2020 Audi S4 Avant is definitely moving the feature in the center stack.
Must have more power
Today’s S4 Avant comes paired with a 3.0-liter turbocharged V-6 capable of producing 354 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque. The updated sporty wagon will probably be fitted with the same yet improved option. How come? Well, the biggest rivals from Mercedes and BMW get 390- and 380-hp systems, so Audi must act in order to stay competitive. However, we highly doubt that the automaker can squeeze off more than 375 from the mill. In any case, the option will continue to use an eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel-drive.
According to our sources, the refreshed S4 Avant will be introduced in late 2019.
