memory seats are standard, if I understood the launch video correctly.

A4 also comes with 150bhp and 190bhp versions and I would think the launch price of $160k is for the 150bhp version

Watch the launch video.

Thanks. I just watched the launch video. You are right - the entry level A4 comes with 150bhp, and it's the higher trim (non-quattro) that comes with 190bhp. That makes a lot more sense.

As for the memory seats, the video features the higher trim (190bhp) model, so it's not clear whether the memory seats comes with the 150bhp model as well. It would be good if it does, as many lower-end brands, eg, Kia, already come with memory seats. The launch price of $159,000, is also more than $10k above what the outgoing pre-facelift model was selling, so they should offer more.

Actually why don’t you surf the sgcarmart website and see the brochure? You will have your answer there. (Spoiler: yes memory seat is standard).

Those spec sheets are updated so usually they are right.

hi guys, I just took over a A4B9 that came with original Audi 19" rims. Need to replace my tyres.

Any recommendations for good tyre shops and tyres?

GY AS5? 

I think current prices very reasonable.

Hi Bros/Sis, 

May I know if there are any major issues with the A4s from year 2017 to 2018? I believe could be the 1.4 or 2.0 engine

Maintenence cost compared to C180? 

Thanks for helping.

Guys, why the new A4 mild hybrid listed at 2.0 turbo.. output figures so low? 148BHP 270NM.

A 1.4 or 1.5 turbo (non mild hybrid) can make those figures nowadays.

Keep cost down to offer more competitive pricing? There is 190bhp version too, but cost more naturally

I was told $147K before the recent coe bid for this base model with low output figures. 

What I'm curious is the technology behind, I had the 1st Gen B9 A4 with 1.4T (150BHP 250NM) before. Normally most 2L NA out there already making 135-145 BHP.. this one has electric motor + turbocharger but only combined to give 148BHP.

I think it is all about cost and profit. 

Want 190bhp, just top up

Otherwise, just settle for 150bhp, and can still get the badge and build quality.

Understand that the motor is supposed to help with the speed pickup, but dunno about real world performance, might be very good for city driving.

At least, now all trim levels can get memory seats, Iirc.

The new A5 base trim also comes with the 150bhp outpu, btw

All for the sake of emission in Europe. All engines with mild hybrid and detuned. Else Kenna fined by EU!

Seems higher than the outgoing model, presumably due to the hybrid system.  Not sure if it is for the 150bhp, 190bhp or average value
