Used Car: 2009 Audi A4 Wagon Review
According to reviewers, the 2009 Audi A4 Avant is a comfortable and sporty wagon to drive. However, other wagons in the class offer more cargo space.
The 2009 Audi A4 Avant comes with a four-cylinder engine, which is paired with an automatic transmission. Overall, reviewers said the A4 wagon is a great car to drive, and that it has enough power to please most drivers. The A4 Avant’s fuel economy rating is 21/27 mpg city/highway, which is high for the class. Like the 2009 Audi A6 Avant, Audi’s Quattro all-wheel drive system is standard. Test drivers liked the A4 Avant’s balanced handling, and more than one critic mentioned its strong brakes.
Reviewers liked the high-quality materials used in the A4 Avant’s cabin, but some also said the back seats could be more comfortable. With 17.3 cubic feet behind the second row, the A4 Avant has less cargo space than many cars in the class. Additionally, some reviewers said that Audi’s MMI infotainment system is difficult to use. Standard features include a 10-speaker stereo with an auxiliary input jack and satellite radio, a sunroof and leather upholstery. Optional features when it was new consist of a navigation system, a back-up camera, a power liftgate, rear park assist, rain-sensing wipers, a CD changer and heated front seats.
Other Cars to Consider
The 2009 Volvo V70 doesn’t come with all-wheel drive, but it has almost double the cargo space behind its second row. Additionally, reviewers liked the V70’s comfortable seats.
The 2009 BMW 3-Series Sports Wagon is one of the few wagons to offer rear-wheel drive, and reviewers loved its responsive six-cylinder engine. The 3-Series Sports Wagon also earned praise for its supportive front seats, just like the V70.
