Well, it’s hard to tell but looking from this picture, it seems that Audi is trying to become a key competitor again in car’s middle class. Thanks to the guys at Autowerk.nl, here is front shot of this new Audi A4 that is scheduled to debut at the Frankfurt Auto Show next month. The car’s dynamics have slightly improved but I still think it’s behind the G37 or the BMW 335i coupe.

The Audi A4 is 4.7 meters long and 1.83 meters wide, the base engine is the 1.8L TFSI with 160hp. Also, the 3.2L V6 gas engine produces 260hp. Several diesel engines are available as well, 2.0, 2.7 and 3.0L.

I’m anxious to see what the test drives will reveal about this new Audi A4 and then we can judge if it actually compares to the BMW 335i. From its looks, I can certainly say that it will be appealing to the Audi fans and the car fans in general, and if the handling will live up to the expectations, then Audi might have drawn a lucky card.

Bottom line is that I like better than the new Mercedes C-class.
