I dunno bout you guys, but I think this looks great! it's more like a facelift though and that disappoints me, but I think the changes are good enough to make it look even more special on the road.

Just imagine what the S-line will look like, then the S4, then the RS4. I think it'll look great!

i like the b5 and b6 designs the best.

b7 was ok.

b8 isn't doing much for me. front is kinda cool though.

i´m a bit disappointed, i have expected more. the new a4 looks very ordinary and not entirely new.
from the upcoming facelift the e90 family won´t get problems with the new audi...the e90 stays the best choice in this class
in my opinion^^

with the exception of the front bumper and embellished rear spoiler (and supposed improved driving dynamics), I'd take the B7 all day long.

New seats and steering wheel look terrible.

Is it me or does the rear look similar to the 135i?

It looks a little better than the current A4. It won't be much of a performer tough.

Looks good - but I don't like the front LEDs, their shape is weird.

The chasis of the car is entirely new and now sits on the new modular platform shared with all new Audis (including the A5 and upcoming A6), so underneath the relatively mild exterior redesign is an entirely new car. The AWD will be split 40-60 front-rear.

The interior is now very close to the current A6/A8/A5. I guess Audi is going for the "same-look-different-size" mantra that was popular in the late 80s early 90s with MB and BMW.

Just wait for the new RS models. Cant wait to see the new RS6 then RS5 and finally RS4 (which wont be revealed for a long time). I have sources that have given me details about the engines and power ratings. All I can say is wow...
