Engine and transmissions?

The major change of this new A4 lurks beneath its bonnet. It comes with a punchier 2.0-litre turbo petrol that makes 188bhp and 320Nm of torque, mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, with all the power being channeled to the front wheels. No diesel engines will be on offer from hereafter.
