Speaking about the launch, Rahil Ansari, the Head of Audi India commented: "It is never an easy task to design a successor to a bestselling model, but that is precisely what makes the whole process so very exciting. With the all-new Audi A4 35 TDI, we are yet again setting the bar a notch higher."
"The all-new Audi A4 35 TDI is a groundbreaking synthesis of technology and aesthetics. The technology available on the earlier Audi A4 has been redeveloped so that it yet again defines the benchmark in the segment With a tremendous response received on A4 30 TFSI, we are now introducing A4 with a diesel which is even more powerful than the previous generation A4."
The new Audi will compete with the BMW 3 Series and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class in India.
