Audi A4 is back in Black Edition

Black Edition part of 2018 model year updates

Audi has announced its 2018 Model Year update programme, with the headline addition being a new Black Edition of the A4 Saloon and Avant.

Based on the S Line specification, Audi claims that the Black Edition models receive equipment enhancements worth up to £550 compared to ordering the extra kit individually on an S Line model.

The Black Edition models get privacy glass for the rear windows, acoustic glazing for the front windows, black exterior trim replacing the normal chrome trim, a flat-bottomed steering wheel, piano black trim inlays and 19-inch alloy wheels.

Minor model year specification updates across the range

All new Audi A4 models ordered from May onwards will feature Audi connect Safety & Service, which uses the car’s onboard 4G network to offer emergency call, roadside assistance and service request functions. Audi A4 Sport and A4 S Line models also get upgraded upholstery, heated front seats and other minor trim changes.

All Audi models, from A1 upwards, will now have cruise control and rear parking sensors fitted as standard as part of the 2018 model year. The optional technology, comfort and sound pack contents will now also be applied more consistently across the Audi range.

The A4 saloon and Avant Black Edition models are both available to order at a starting price of £32,350 on-road, rising to £44,350.
