Compared to the blitz that surrounded the of the Audi A5 coupe, it almost as if Audi is trying to keep the of its all-new A4 Avant Quattro a This latest A4 Avant from Audi’s newest and is bigger, lighter and more than the outgoing car. But for the of us, we can’t recall hearing one about this new and improved

The Audi A4 has long been one of our cars, and the only way we knew the new car was out was when the 2.0 Avant Quattro up on our doorstep.

While the bulk of the 2009 A4 is all new, the 2.0-liter turbocharged banger is carried over the last-gen car. As good as the is, Audi has found room for and found a way to lower its fuel by 10%. This engine’s 258 of torque comes in at a very 1,500 rpm, and the torque remains flat throughout the

If you didn’t know better, swear that the 2009 A4 Avant was packing a much engine.

Of course, this engine’s to fool you with its size depend on which transmission mated to. Our test car came Audi’s six-speed Tiptronic transmission, and to be honest, we felt it neutered the engine.

To improve economy numbers, this box shifts up early, and often. off the line is decent, but the authoritative we used to associate with the has gone missing. Even if we the gear lever down a into “sport” mode, the A4 still seems hesitant to its more wild side. not all bad, though: switching the over to full manual will give one the ability to wring out and enjoy the engine.

just too bad that our test car come with paddle

We had to read Audi’s press to learn that the 2009 A4 was more than a refreshed fascia. The chassis and sheet are all new, but design traits the pill-shaped silhouette and shield-like return. The only visual to alert one to the fact that is, in fact, the ’09 A4 Avant are the narrower head and taillights.

our test car being a base we didn’t get the cool LEDs in the making it a bit harder to distinguish the new car the old. But hey, we did get standard aluminum wheels.

As always, the of the Audi A4 is a nice place to be. designers seem to have a set of French curve templates designing the new car’s interior, in a cabin that doesn’t as cold and Germanic as the ’08 Our test car’s tan leather surfaces and bright wood also added to the overall of warmness.

Like every other we’ve been in, it’s to find the perfect driving in the 2009 Audi A4 Avant, and behind the wheel of the car truly is a joy for who enjoy the process of driving. The A4 Avant’s cabin is and thanks to the larger wheelbase, the area is actually spacious and now.

But not all is perfect in the A4. Audi’s Multi Interface (MMI) is now standard, and to BMW’s iDrive. it’s not that intuitive to use. We know how the controls are laid out in equipped with navigation but in our nav-less test car, two on the center console control from the sound system to the

Functions aren’t clearly on the buttons that do exist; you to stab at a button that you will do what you want, at the screen to see if you hit the right one, hit another button to choose a twist the knob to the function you back out of the menu, and then do it all again because you changed the settings of the stereo when you wanted to do was turn on the heater. sure one would get used to it a few months.

We’re also sure one eventually get used to a daily in the stomach after a few weeks or so; doesn’t mean it will be desirable. Still, the rest of the car is so we won’t let an otherwise small with the MMI sour us on what is, in the a truly fantastic car.
