The 2009 A4 Avant is quite a bit but the new MLP chassis has decreased overall by ten percent. There is also new 2.0-liter TFSI engine delivers more power and with a ten percent fuel boost. Quattro all-wheel comes standard.

What’s Not to

We would like the choice of a engine and DSG, as featured on Audis like the A3 and the TT. Also, options can quickly take the A4 well into the pricing

The Drive:

DriverSide Driving

One of the main criticisms of previous A4 was that the engine, sitting far of the front axle, upset the balance. This was the direct of the previous generations’ architecture. has fixed the problem with the model, moving the engine over the front axle to a superior front-end balance. The new holds the corners better the model it replaces, especially due to its weight.

Audi Drive Select is a option – and long option – that engine, suspension, transmission and characteristics. The system is showcased a … dynamic steering that turns the A4’s rack faster at slow and requires less input to sharp turns. The optional has three modes; comfort, and dynamic, the last of which stiffens the steering, providing feedback from the road.

The weight and size difference the A4 Sedan and Wagon is negligible at and the Avant and Sedan provide sporty and Teutonic-feeling rides.

Engine and Drivetrain

The A4 comes a completely reworked 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine producing 211 and a massive 258 lb-ft of torque. six-speed tiptronic automatic and Quattro all-wheel drive comes standard and is the only available. We hope a Diesel option makes it over the in the future.

Interesting Vehicle and Options

You should check the box for the Audi side assist which uses radar to detect vehicles in the A4’s spots and warns drivers of the by illuminating a warning light on the view mirrors. Add this to the active cruise control that uses radar to the distance to the next car and you have one of the wagons on the road.

Key Technology Evaluation

Audi’s bearing Multi-Media Interface uses an integrated color to control functions such as control and the sound system, as as optional navigation. The headlights are now by sleek, S5 /R8 -style LED running that have the added of reducing daytime running energy consumption by 95 percent.

Evaluation/Gas Mileage

Audi A4 Avant

Official EPA aren’t available yet, but has promised efficiency increases. The ULEV-II 2.0 TFSI engine 20 mpg city and 28 mpg highway, and Audi is an increase of 15 percent fuel which should result, we can in a combined cycle of 24-25

A Closer Look: Vehicle


The A4 Avant surrounds you in a comfortable interior that a high level of techno While Audi has been a in interiors, the last generation A4 was a little long in the tooth. The new A4 upon the previous models but a level of luxe sophistication is as easy to use as it is beautiful for an entry-level car.

We hope the Red Silk leather is an option too.

As a of its increased length and wider the 2009 A4 Avant has a lower and sportier look. The side build off of the A4 Sedan and incorporate a protruded line, which the Avant a nicely stylized The front-end is all massive trapezoidal and S5 LED lights.

The Avant looks like an A4 sedan, which is a great as Audi decided to leave the on the drafting table.

Market and Pricing

The A4 won’t be on sale in America until mid-September and official pricing is still established. But Ingolstadt assures us pricing won’t be too far afield the 2008 model. The A4 Avant is in a segment, fraught with European competitors like the 9-3 SportCombi. Volvo V70 and XC70. Passat Wagon and the BMW 328xi.

We the A4, with new 2.0 TFSI engine can its own and, in fact, beat its in a head to head challenge.

What We Think

Audi on selling around 20,000 A4 in the U.S. for 2009, which to us, is a While we like the Audi Q7. in its V6-guise, the Avant makes a lot sense in today’s day and age. The of sleek and sporty with of use is a surefire winner, but try telling to the American buying public. If good comes out of the latest gas we hope it’s a newfound of elegant sport wagons.

The would seem a whole lot crowded if a large percentage of Moms switched from the SUV to this sleek, new Audi.
