Audi is set to unveil a new generation of its A4 small sedan at September’s 2015 Frankfurt Auto Show, but we won't see it in showrooms until the 2017 model year as the current model still has some life in it. The current A4 has been with us since the 2009 model year and it’s certainly starting to show its age up against newer rivals such as the BMW 3-Series, Cadillac ATS and Mercedes-Benz C-Class. It’s now soldiering on into the 2016 model year, priced from $36,825 with its $925 destination charge added on.

Unfortunately, there aren’t many changes to the note on this 2016 model, with the only updates worth mentioning being a new three-spoke multifunction steering wheel fitted as standard on the entry-level Premium trim, and Advanced Key and Audi Connect tech features now available as part of the Navigation Plus Package. Opt for the more upmarket Premium Plus, and you now get a Bang & Olufsen sound system included with the Technology Package. Finally, Premium models with the S Line Competition Plus Package feature a new set of 19-inch wheels.

Other models in the A4 range include the sporty S4, which for 2016 is priced from $50,125, once again including destination. No changes are mentioned for this model.

This model is priced from $43,625, including destination, for the 2016 model year.
