Visually, the 2021 Audi A4 is certainly a handsome-looking car. It comes with a completely revised front end, which gets a newly designed bumper and a wider single-frame grille, offering an aggressive look. The LED headlights are completely new and the LED daytime running lights too get a new pattern, differentiating it from the previous model. The car also looks slightly sportier, with all the edges and creases, but the 17-inch wheels look pale in comparison to the overall look of the car.
Step inside and you'll see that the new A4's cabin too gets its fair share of updates. The car gets a redesigned dashboard with a new infotainment system, and the overall fit and finish inside the car is also very premium and is in line with what you would expect from a car in this segment. The party piece here is the new 10.1-inch MMI screen. Yes, it is an all-new unit and of course, it does get smartphone connectivity in the form of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
