My guess would be that the new Audi A4 will become a really important player in the premium mid-size sedan class, even though the competition from the new Mercedes C-Class and the BMW 3-Series is pretty tough. So Abt got to work and created this, the AS4 tuning program for the A4. And they sure did a pretty good job, ’cause it looks great. Exterior mods include new front skirts, new side wings, new rear spoiler and new rear skirt with quad exhausts integrated.
And that’s not all, because Abt also worked on the performances and offers two performance kits, the Abt Power and the Abt Power S. First, there’s the 1.8-litre turbocharged TFSI engine, which develops 160 hp in the production version, but power output is increased to 200 hp and 310 Nm of torque with the Abt Power S kit and 240 hp with the Abt Power S kit. Then, there’s the 143 hp 2.0 TDI unit, which develops 170 hp (Abt Power) and 200 hp (Abt Power S). The 2.7 TDI develops 190 hp (Abt Power) and 230 hp (Abt Power S), while the 3.0 TDI now produces 300 hp with the Abt Power S performance kit.
