Audi A4 goes longer for Chinese market

A4080113

Audi has just introduced a special long-wheelbase version of its new A4 only for the Chinese market, joining the long-wheelbase A6 that has been available in China since 2000.

The Chinese crave a little extra length, but this is the first time a vehicle in this size class has been elongated. Labeled as a premium car in China, the Audi A4L’s wheelbase is 2.36 inches longer than the standard A4, most of the extra legth is added to rear-seat legroom. The A4L will be built in Changchun, China and will feature a special chassis designed to cope with sometimes-rough Chinese road conditions. Engine options will be the 180-hp 2.0 TFSI four-cylinder and the 265-hp 3.2 FSI six-cylinder. The Audi A4L will debut at the Guangzhou Motor Show on November 18, and should be in Chinese dealerships by January 2009.
