Ever since the Audi A4 was launched in the mid 1990s, it has quickly captured the market and became a favorite of luxury car buyers because of its well-designed cabin, superb handling and optional Quattro all-wheel drive. One of the most loved characteristic of the Audi A4 is its distinctly European sensibility and ambiance provided by its tight panel gaps, top-notch materials and firm, comfortable seating. For 2009, the Audi A4 is redesigned to be a much better car than ever before. It is in fact larger than its predecessors by as much as 2.1” wide, 4/6” long with the track longer by about 1.8” and the wheelbase 6.6”longer. And yet, despite the increase in size, the Audi A4 still retains the agility and good handling that has endeared it to many drivers.
The new 09 Audi A4 also features an all-new engine: 2.0 liter, turbo 4-cylinder with 211 horsepower. Other exciting new features include the new LED daytime running lights introduced in the Audi R8 which has become a trademark feature. There’s also a freshly redesigned interior, lowered wind resistance, lighter and stronger parts and a more spacious cabin. Audi’s engineers made sure the new A4 is truly a far better car to satisfy even the most meticulous client. They even went as far as making the A4’s AC lighter by 20% with 10% less fuel consumption.
There is also an abundance of advanced technology on the A4 such as adaptive cruise control, rear-view camera, blind spot detection system, and Audi Drive Select, a system that allows the driver to dynamically adjust suspension engine response and steering to effectively make the car either a sports sedan or long distance cruiser (or anywhere in between). Now that’s versatility. The Audi A4 is one of the top picks for family vehicles this year.
