The A4 is dead, long live the A4! Audi has replaced its long-in-the-tooth 3 Series rival with a totally brand new model. Is there more than meets the eye to this similarly-styled replacement? AOL Cars heads to Venice to find out.

What is it?
It's the brand new Audi A4 – yes, honest! It might have familiar styling, particularly in picture form, but don't be fooled: this is an all-new, totally redesigned car.

Audi has started completely from scratch, taking the new modular platform on which the Q7 also sits, and comprehensively cutting off the kilos from the old A4's kerb weight to help give the model a more nimble feel.
