This is Audi's new A4 compact executive car, which we will get to see in the metal at next month's Frankfurt motor show.
There are five engine options: 1.8-litre turbo and 3.2-litre V6 petrols, and 2.0-litre, 2.7-litre V6 and 3.0-litre V6 turbodiesels.
Power outputs vary between 143bhp and 265bhp.
Six-speed manual, six-speed automatic and continuously variable gearboxes are available, depending on engine choice.
Audi has aimed the A4 directly at BMW's 3 Series, claiming it is 'the sportiest saloon in the mid-sized category'.
The most obvious difference from the rear-wheel-drive BMW is that the A4 is available in front-wheel or four-wheel drive.
The A4 gets many of the underpinnings from the A5 coupe, including the under-bonnet layout and aluminium suspension.
Buyers can choose Audi Drive Select, which electronically varies engine, automatic gearshift, steering and damping characteristics.
They can also select two sports suspension settings and Dynamic Steering, which reduces the effort required to steer at low speeds.
For the first time, Audi is offering buyers the choice of air-cooled front seats, a Bang and Olufsen hi-fi, a rear-view parking camera and a warning system that tells you if you are too close to the car in front or straying out of your lane.
The A4 goes on sale in February 2008, with prices expected to be revealed nearer its launch.
Our reviews are based on hard data and thorough testing in the real world.
