Between a Volvo S60 and the A4. One fully loaded with safety feature, versus a bare metal stripped of any safety features, and not even a memory seat,  but carries  the German badge. 

Which will you chose?

Audi A4. Not just because of badge but day to day living with actual buttons and direct access to aircon setting is important. Volvo all very swee but to adjust aircon have to jump thru many steps. Build quality of Audi is very good IMO. I don’t find my A4 bare, I find it pretty well spec but horses for courses so features that works for me may not be so for others.

Is it T4 momentum? If so I don’t even think it has a reverse cam and you need to add it?

I’ve test driven the S60 and A4. S60’s drive pales in comparison. FC is not good. The infotainment can be hard to use. For eg, to off the stop start you need to press a few times before reaching the option.

True that it has adaptive cruise control, lane keep etc. But how often do you use it vs normal driving? Also, I felt that the steering was light and feedback wasn’t great. Those additional features r great but the most impt in the end is the comfort, drive, and ease of use on a daily basis.

If you have test driven both then you should be able to feel the difference.

By the way the new A4 coming will be tuned down to 150bhp. Price might be close but power less. 

Are you sure new A4 will be detune ? Not much differ frm B9 spec i was told, same 188bhp ,just have electric mild hydbrid motor

How does Jap drive like?
How does Audi drive like? Is there a difference btw fwd and Quattro?

Coming from honda civic turbo, i thought civic was smooth, but A4 more smoother and quiet. More composed and relaxing to drive. Feel solid than civic. Quattro is good, but driving in Spore ,fwd is enuff, save on fuel, just dont take corner like a mad man

given Audi plant shutdown, quite possibly the current A4 maybe on extended life span.

$145k some weeks back. A4 is cheaper as PA is clearing stock. 

Maybe should wait for the new A4 then decide 

Anyone knows what is the latest price for A4?

The Audi factory is already manufacturing the new model and no more producing the current model liso

What were getting over here are leftover stocks of the old model

I won't kancheong spider rush to buy the old model. COE is gonna drop. Ppl more worried abt job & economic survival than a badge. All this BS from SE abt detuning of new model is exactly that

question is whether the new model will be priced similar to the current or will there a be a significant jump.  

if price is similar, then will the specs be even more bare-bones than the current?

Barring any inside info, only time will tell

For reference, the current promo is $139999 with cat B at $30012

The new A4 is 150bhp. Just that should enable it to be priced near to the current one. Maybe abit more. It has mild hybrid too, for better or for worse (battery warranty) 

The old one only left a few units for sale if wanna get it.

I reckon there will be a price increase initially when it's new, throw in some features that other premium cars have, then the price will gradually come down, but the features will also be reduced to the more bare bones versions we are used to. 
It still sells well, so Audi knows what matters to the buyers.

that’s normal for all conti marque

during the initial launch, always come up with all kind of tok kong black edition, shadow edition, one edition, first edition, premium edition, high trim to milk customer. 

once the model is available for 1yr+ ... all back to basics bare bone ... 

you pay what you get ... and in spore is always pay more for less because of arf, coe and taxes ... just suck it up

Rather than NEW, it is just FL B9.  Right?
