In this era of ongoing economic malaise, even those with a taste for German luxury are often finding themselves having to cut back. Or perhaps, they just need something a bit smaller than the A8, 7-series or S-class, yet still befitting of a luxury garage. For those of you, Audi offers up its mid-sized A4. Less than a year ago Audi introduced a completely redesigned A4 to the US market. The latest edition of the A4 is built on an all-new platform that addresses of the complaints of past models and makes this a much more credible competitor to BMW's iconic 3-series.
The A4 is available in two different body styles, a four door sedan and the example that we drove, an A4 Avant. Avant is Audi terminology for what Americans typically call a station wagon. In Europe, this body style is often referred to as an estate, touring car or shooting brake. Whatever, you call it, ever since Audi introduced the 100 Avant in the '80s its wagons have been among the most handsome on the road, and this latest A4 is no exception. Learn what the A4 Avant is like to live with after the jump.
