I am wondering why there isn't much talk about the upcomiong changes to the A4 line happeneing in Feb or next year.
There are a lot of changes happening to the 2005 A6: Upgraded engines, Upgraded interior, New exterior design etc.
Anyone have any info. on possible engine upgrades for the 2005 A4. I imagine they need to change this and take advantage of the new A6 engines based on the threat of the BMW 3 series which is getting a totally new design change as well as a massive bump in horsepower for there base and upgraded engines for there 2005 new model.
There isn't much info on edmunds or autospies, just checking to see what other rumored info is out there.

For the year 2005 the Audi A4 is going to get a facelift. Now word on what will be new, here are a few pics.

That first picture there was like an autospies picture of the next A6.

Does anyone know whether or not Audi plans on doing a refresh on the S4 design as well? What about MMI? I don't want to purchase the S4 and have the model style change over right after I sign the paperwork...

I'm hearing that the A4 will get it's facelift for spring 2005 as a 2006 model.
Naturally the new direct-injection V6 in the 2005 A4 will be present. Not a moment too soon I might add.

Audi is close to finishing its family-wide facelift. Our world-exclusive photographs prove that Ingolstadt’s new company face will be grafted on to the A4 with this autumn’s facelift.
Dominated by the vertical shield grille first seen on the A8 W12 and A6, the new nose is a radical move away from today’s rounded styling. Styling at the back is new, too, with A3 Sportback-inspired ‘stepped’ rear lights. Insiders claim that every body panel is new.
It’s not just new styling, either; Audi is preparing a series of major mechanical and interior changes to keep the A4 apace of the competition, which includes the recently revised Mercedes C-class and Alfa Romeo 156.
New engines are headed by a brace of new four-cylinder diesels, boasting a particulate filter and power outputs of 115, 140 and 175bhp. The petrol engines are all the same as in the A6, with several new V6s.
The cabin will be updated, too, with the arrival of Audi’s simplified multi-function controller, the MMI Multi-Media Interface.
The revised A4 will be shown this autumn, with UK sales due to start in early 2005. Saloon and Avant arrive together.

the new design actually have more emotion and character in it, i mean of ourse the current design is nice and pleasing, but it feels...cold somehow. I received the same pic from a friend, and i gotta admit it looks more appealing to me
btw will there be any upgrade to the engine? im expecting a higher hp of course, along with better low torque acceleration.

My point exactly. With BMW 3 series coming out in June/July of 05', with a fresh new look and 2 new beefed up engines, Audi needs to spruce up there A4 at least with some more horsepower to compete.
I say bring on the new FSI V6 and V8.

I also am liking the new style change. Add some upgraded engine options and they will be a fair bet against BMW 3 Series.
