Audi A4 2.0 FSi Turbo

Broadcast dates : 12th June 2005
18th June 2005

Itís indicative of Audiís acceptance as a premium brand today that even the relatively subtle updates to the new modelís bodywork have made a big impact. And beneath the sheet metal, the changes run deep.

The compact multi-valve four-cylinder petrol motor provides tremendous mid-range punch, and also has the ability to spin to six-thousand eight-hundred revs effortlessly.

It features Audiís ground-breaking direct-injection technology, where fuel is fed directly into the combustion chamber.

Right now Audi cabins are the ones to beat. An absence of gimmickry, and beautifully trimmed.

Thereís none of the squirrelly feeling one sometimes gets at high speed with a front-wheel-drive car over undulations. And the two-litre turbo A4 is capable of very high speed.

Driving more sedately, the A4 impresses with its impeccable ride quality. Itís performance-orientated in a subtle way and the well-designed suspension complements the stealth-car persona perfectly.

That emphatic grille hints at its potential. But, hey! Audi has arrived. Thereís no need to get in anyoneís face.
