The A4 is a relatively new nameplate produced by the German automaker Audi since 1994. The A4 has always been a line of compact luxury cars underpinned by the parent company Volkswagen Group's B-platform. Yes, Audi became a fully-owned VW subsidiary in 1966. 

Audi has produced the A4 line of compact executive cars across five generations, starting with the B5 Series to the current and final fifth-gen B9 (MLB platform), to the upcoming B10 generation. Audi offered the A4 as a replacement for the popular Audi 80, which explains the B-numbering designation, a continuation of the Audi 80 lineage. The B9 shares underpinning with other VW models riding on the company’s MLB platform. 

Although many Nigerian drivers shun Audi for reasons including the complex electrical and mechanical system that prove particularly challenging to the average local technician, the 2023 Audi A4 is a stunning luxury sedan designed with both style and function as the watchwords. 

The new A4 is the ultimate definition of a sports sedan equipped with a wide range of features making it a top choice for drivers looking for a comfortable, high-performance executive compact car that can handle all their driving needs. Below is everything you need to know about the new 2023 Audi A4. 

The 2023 Audi A4 Exterior Design

Starting with the exterior, Audi did an impressive job of blessing the 2023 Audi A4 with a sleek and sporty look that is sure to turn heads wherever it goes. It's just as well that the A4 is incredibly attractive. That's because Audi needs bucket loads of comeliness and attractive features to lure Nigerian shoppers into investing in the brand. 

It’s no secret that the German brand is among the brands many Nigerians choose to give a wide berth due to their typical high maintenance cost. It doesn’t help that most Audi cars run on premium fuel, something we doubt you can find in Nigeria. In fact, let us know any day you find a gas station in Nigeria that offers gas options. 

Sadly, the 2023 Audi A4 runs on premium unleaded gasoline with an octane rating of 91 or higher. In Nigeria, our cars drink a single unified grade of between 87 and 90 octane rating, mainly imported from the USA. 

It sounds like we're digressing, but it's important to note that you can run your car on a lower octane fuel than required but at the risk of the engine running poorly as well as damage to the engine and emissions control system over time. 

With that said, it’s rather hard to ignore the sharp lines and bold curves that give the 2023 Audi A4 a sense of aggression and power, perfect for drivers who want to make a statement on the road. The front grille is large and imposing, with the iconic Audi logo proudly displayed in the center. The LED headlights are sharp and modern, providing excellent visibility even in the darkest conditions.
