 2014 Audi A4 to have cylinder deactivation technology - report
2012 Audi A4 - 26.10.2011

Will be lighter and more efficient than today's model

The Audi A4 has been on the market for a few years, so it comes a little surprise the company is preparing to launch a redesigned model in mid-2014.

According to Auto Motor und Sport, the car will have a dynamic design with a prominent single-frame grille, flared wheel arches and sharper contours. The sedan could also have larger taillights and a more pronounced spoiler.

Unsurprisingly, the A4 will have updated technology which is expected to include a heads-up display and an MMI Touch infotainment system.

Engine options remain shrouded in secrecy, but speculation suggests there will be a 1.4-liter TSI with outputs of 122 HP (90 kW) and 180 HP (132 kW). Thanks to cylinder deactivation technology, the engines could save approximately 0.5 L/100km.

There's also word of a plug-in hybrid variant that will feature a 211 HP (155 kW) 2.0-liter TFSI engine and an electric motor that develops 95 HP (70 kW).
