2010 Audi A4 Wagon Review
This review was written when the 2010 Audi A4 Wagon was new.
The 2010 Audi A4 Avant is praised for its smooth powertrain and pleasing handling dynamics, as well as its attractive design and elegant interior accommodations. Best of all, its top-notch safety ratings make it a solid choice for families. Not surprisingly, the A4 wagon is a Consumer Guide "Recommended Buy."
Just redesigned last year, the A4 Avant carries into the 2010 model year unchanged -- which is fine by critics, who appreciate its attractive design, luxurious accommodations, advanced safety features and everyday practicality. "This car has style worthy of the Hollywood glitterati and moves that would make Justin Timberlake step back," says Car and Driver. "Fabulous-looking, well dressed, quick on its feet, and with a damn good optional stereo."
While the 2010 A4 wagon ranks at the top of its class, it's not perfect. Reviewers consistently complain that its Multi-Media Interface (MMI) system isn't very intuitive. That, however, is common among German auto brands -- like BMW and its iDrive system. Still, Audi's MMI system has recently been updated for easier use, so it's better than previous iterations of the technology.
Other Wagons to Consider
If you're in the market for a luxury wagon, check out the BMW 3-Series. All-wheel drive is only available for the 328i xDrive trim, but test drivers report that it sets the benchmark for handling in this highly competitive class.

- "Not surprisingly, Audi hasn't strayed that far from the successful formula that has guided the model since its introduction in 1995: Attractive styling, good performance, the optional Quattro all-wheel-drive system and a price on par with its two leading competitors, the BMW 3-Series and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class." -- Orlando Sentinel
- "[T]he 2010 A4 remains an eminently desirable sport sedan/wagon with arguably the nicest interior in this segment." -- Edmunds
