    Link to said car? Are you sure they arent pricing that as used?

    The gap above the hood is similar to Lexus LFA, but that doesn't make it any better. The overall front end looks like a Hyundai. I understand most of us are in these cars so we don't look like we're in a STI or a Type R, but this generation will move way too far away from that IMO.
    On the touchscreen note, I'm out of the country for a few, and I'm renting a brand new A6, base model of course, but it has the dual touchscreens, I assume same as this will have, and I hate them with passion.
    First of all you're always forced to navigate between the two screens, when inputting navigation for example. The haptic feedback is really weird, even though it can be turned off. Fingerprint smudges are a constant nuisance, and of course your typical touchscreen issue of attempting to press one thing, hitting a bump, then pressing something else by mistake, then figuring out how the hell to navigate back to what you wanted to do in the first place.
    But at least the cupholders are in a decent place.
    I keep telling myself how lucky I am to have purchased current gen S4 before this shit gets implemented.

    Fun fact the first gen Porsche Cayenne did not have rear cup holders. (Major disappointment after going to Starbucks with it for the first time )

    A buddy of mine posted a link to a German site with a scroller that lets you compare the same angles and visuals between the current body. Thanks to that site, I discovered another difference I hadn't noticed before:

    Audi COMPLETELY got rid of the front and rear fender flares.
    The front and rear quarter panels are smoothed out all the way to the wheel arches. Why would they design such a desirable aesthetic OUT of the car!?

    The flares are gone but they added a buldge that begins right under the mid body line more like the rs4/5 so it's not completely lost

    Itís not out yet. They send cars out all over the world for different types testing. Hot weather, cold weather, harsh city driving environments etc.

    This also looks like base model A4, hopefully a loaded S4 looks better. Still not a big fan though.

    I will say though... the screen was monstrous and I am jealous of the updated MMI. The piano black interior pieces were nice too... I may need to look into that lol

    I donít mind the headlights tho. it's just the hood gap, squished grill and the ugly sensor + silver shape.

    edit: looks like we are back to buying ecodes?

The way the quarter panels are makes the car look odd at that angle. The exhaust looks real, so that's nice to see.

    If this is a preview of the future, I wonder what the B10 will look like? Maybe at that time we'll look back at this B9.75 and think it wasn't so bad after all.

    what an absolute disaster. I have loved my S4's, but WTF is this?



    The B9 in general has been a total blunder. I remember when I was anxiously waiting with my aging B8 S4 for the B9, Audi kept delaying, firing people causing a back log starting with the Q7. Finally Hackenberg started moving R&D, but I really hope this wasn't his vision for the B9...

    Audi's A4 sales are down compared to the Q5. I can't figure out why...maybe cause they look like this...the perk is that there is still the 3-series left out there.

    I had/have the same issue as you. I wanted to skip this horrible IPad Nav so Iíve been waiting to upgrade. Unfortunately now that the B9.5 looks horrendous and has the iPad Nav idk what to do

    This.

    Car Journalists love to call the Audi boring looking, following their cult mantra, but really, Audiís are the cleanest looking cars.

    Too bad Audi is buying into it and attempting to add ďaggressiveĒ looks, S4 will look like a Civic Type-R soon.

    The huge inner door molding that continues the dash line is excessive. It makes the inner door cards look cheap. Something reminiscent of Hyundai/Kia design.





    I'm still pissed about the removal of fender flares. The overall bulging sides just make it look like an overweight and unbalanced bland-sedan. If you cover the entire front end of the car in this picture, I'd guess I was looking at something along the lines of a 2013 Corolla.


    I do like the new hood stamping. So... there's that.
