Audi now offers TDI® clean diesel variants of the A6, A7, A8 and Q5, marking the first time Audi features a full lineup of TDI clean diesel vehicles in the U.S. The RS 7, the most powerful RS model ever offered in the U.S., joins the lineup this fall, representing the epitome of aesthetic design, innovative technology and track-tested performance. Also new to the lineup is the high-performance SQ5, the first-ever S variant of any Audi Q model. The R8 model line is now optimized with a new incredibly fast-shifting double-clutch transmission and the all-new R8 V10 plus model.
In addition to new model introductions, highlights of the 2014 Model Year line-up changes are as follows:
2014 Audi A4 Model Line

It also offers a new attractive S line style package, rear split folding seats in the Cold Weather package, and Audi MMI® Navigation.
