Conclusion of the Audi A4 2019
Changes in the design of the lights and indentation lines around the body make the Audi A4 look more fresh. Lattice line design on the front and rear lights may not be the taste of many people. But for us the design of the lamp is quite unique and gives a distinctive Audi identity that has a pleasing DRL LED. While significant changes are the entertainment features with the new Audi MMI on a large 10.1-inch screen. As a luxury sedan of course entertainment features have an important role. Especially at this time the technology on the head unit and smartphone are increasingly sophisticated. Of course Audi doesn’t want its flagship product to be out of date.
