Is this the face of the new A4?

2014 Audi A4

The a new Audi A4 is due in 2014 and Auto Express has exclusive pictures of it. Audi hasn't been shy about talking up the next generation A4. Head of technical project management, Alexander Pesch, has said - "The next A4 will move the game on. The jump from today's car in terms of design and efficiency will be really big."

Audi is looking at a light weight strategy for the next A4. Possibly as much as 220lbs have been taken out of the car, thanks to next generation chassis tech being shared between Audi and VW. Lightweight and new power plants could spell trouble for BMW.

As for engines, there'll be big steps forward in hybrid tech, with two petrol-electric A4s likely. First up is a development of the A3 e-tron's front-wheel-drive plug-in system, teaming a 2.0-litre petrol engine with an electric motor integrated into the DSG box.

The S4 will feature a reworked version of the current turbo V6, with around 350bhp, while the flagship RS4 Avant could ditch its 4.2-litre V8 in favor of a smaller turbo V6 offering almost 500bhp. More powerful but less thirsty 1.8 TFSI and 2.0 TFSI petrol engines, plus 2.0 TDI diesels, will again make up the lion's share of sales.
If you're look at a new BMW 2 series, 3 series or 4 series does this make you want to hold off and see what the new A4 is all about?

It won't look like that. They already debuted the next version of their styling with the A6, etc.

It looks pretty good except for the hood. Both the hood and the logo on the hood look like an afterthought.

The 2 horizontal what?
The word "there" can appear as a pronoun, as in “over there".

"Their" is a possessive pronoun. In a phrase like “Susan and Bill's car,” it could be used to to make a new phrase: “their car.”

”They're” is a contraction of “they are.”
“They are” should always be able to replace “they're.”

Extra credit: It's "I'm looking for an M3" not "I'm looking for a M3".
