Check out this used Audi A4, a 1.8-litre turbo-petrol model, available for an extremely attractive price!
Audi is one of the biggest premium car brands in the entire world. The German carmaker is known for manufacturing some of the most luxurious and also some of the sportiest cars around. Needless to say, owning an Audi is a dream for many. Sadly, with skyrocketing prices, this dream doesn’t become reality for most people. Thankfully, there are a few used cars that are as lovely as a new one, but for a much smaller price! One such example is listed below, a used Audi A4 that's going for lesser than what you would pay for a Maruti Swift.
The A4 seen in these pictures was posted on Droom and is available for a mere Rs. 4.8 lakh! To put that into perspective, the base variant of a Maruti Suzuki Swift costs Rs. 5.19 lakh (ex-showroom). Also, a new Audi A4 costs between Rs. 41.49 lakh to 46.96 lakh (also ex-showroom prices), which is quite a lot! The car is listed in Mumbai, so if you’re in or near Mumbai and are looking for a luxury car with good value, this one comes as a steal!
Let’s talk details now. This particular car is a 2006 Audi A4, which makes it a couple of generations older than the current model. It's powered by a 1.8-litre TFSI petrol engine. Regular readers of IndianAuto and fans of the VW group would instantly recognise this as the older version of the same turbo-petrol engine that is available in the Skoda Octavia 1.8! While the Skoda has a higher power output (180 PS and 250 Nm) due to slightly higher boost pressure, this Audi A4 manages to generate 170 PS and 225 Nm. The listing, however, incorrectly states the peak torque at 320 Nm, which was the figure for the 2.0-litre diesel version of the 2006 A4. The transmission on offer here is a 6-speed Tiptronic automatic unit.
The look of the car is quite different from the Audis of today. Where the latest models look sharp, sleek, and sporty, this older one looks more mellow and classy. The front grille is a large trapezoid, extending all the way to the bottom of the car’s face. The headlights are larger towards the centre, and gently taper outside, with a step in the middle. The taillights feature an opposite design, smaller towards the centre of the car and larger towards the ends, with a step in the middle. The allow wheels have a 15-spoke design, and the overall silhouette of the car looks subtly premium. This isn’t a car that would grab a lot of attention, but would still demand respect every time you overtake someone or pull up at a stoplight.
