[size=5]Audi has officially unveiled the 2012 A4 / S4 facelift.[/size]

Looking more aggressive, the Audi A4 adopts a new front fascia with a revised grille, restyled headlights and a modified hood. There's also a new diffuser, revised taillights and a dual exhaust system. For a sportier appearance, the S-line package has a reduced ride height and 18-inch alloy wheels (19-inchers are optional).

Inside, the cabin gains a new steering wheel, revised trim and additional chrome accents. Other changes include an updated infotainment system and buttons for the heated / cooled seats.

Under the hood, the Audi A4 has a variety of engines available. The 2.0 TDI has outputs of 136 PS (100 kW / 134 hp) and 163 PS (120 kW / 161 hp). Another four-cylinder diesel produces 120 PS (88 kW / 118 hp), 143 PS (105 kW / 141 hp) and 177 PS (130 kW / 174 hp). Last but not least, the 3.0 TDI develops 204 PS (150 kW / 201 hp) and 245 PS (180 kW / 241 hp).

On the petrol side, a new 1.8-liter TFSI produces 170 PS (125 kW / 168 hp) and 320 Nm (236 lb-ft) of torque. Other choices include a 1.8 TFSI with 120 PS (88 kW / 118 hp), a 2.0 TFSI with 211 PS (155 kW / 208 hp) and a 3.0 TFSI V6 with 272 PS (200 kW / 268 hp).

Notably, the Audi S4 has a supercharged 3.0-liter TFSI V6 with 333 PS (245 kW / 329 hp) and 440 Nm (324 lb-ft) of torque. It enables the S4 sedan to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 5.0 seconds, before hitting an electronically-limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph). In terms of efficiency, owners can expect to average 8.0 L/100 km (29.4 mpg US / 35.3 mpg UK).

On the handling front, the Audi A4 has a revised suspension and a new power steering system which "requires no energy for straight-ahead motion, thereby reducing fuel consumption by up to 0.3 L/100 km."

The 2012 Audi A4 will go on sale shortly and pricing has "changed only slightly."

It's too bad Volkswagen makes such junk engines. Those Audis are some hot looking sedans.

It is a station wagon :) Well, the one shown here is an allroad, a4 avant is the same except it's just got lower, simpler suspension and it's missing the body kit.

Personal experience?

Besides, the engine is covered under the warranty if you buy new or used certified.
