Click above for a high-res gallery of the 2009 Audi A4 Avant.

Audi was nice enough to provide us with some more shots of the 2009 A4 Avant ahead of its official unveiling in Geneva next month. As discussed previously, the new estate gets an extra five inches tacked onto its back end to produce a total of 50-cubic feet of storage in the boot. At this point, Audi will only be offering those of us in the States the 2.0-liter TFSI, whereas sedan buyers can opt for the larger 3.2-liter V6. Disappointing as that may be, Audi was able to shave off ten-percent of the weight on this model when compared to the outgoing version.

Check our original post for all of the details and see the gallery below for 29 images of Audi's new A4 Avant.

      I guess there is no pleasing the US consumer. First they cry about nice interiors, and when audi once again delivers a superb product, along with the proverbial 2 cupholders, it's the electric gremlins that spoil the deal. Judging by the latest survey that americans want cupholders more than anything else in this world, audi might have done this just to please the US buyer. But, alas, he/she cannot be fooled that easily. Now it seems that the electronics and buttons around the shifter are not coffee-resistant, unlike the ones in cadillac and lincoln, which come with a certificate for coffee-proof presurization. I wonder who will the driver of, say, for example a buick, blame for his burned crotch if he spills hot coffee on himslef and then crashes into a tree whilst looking in disbelief at the steam coming off his pants.

        A little word of advice. When you buy a 40K car, don't drink coffee in it. Duh.

      nice val! tell us how you really feel!
      its true what you say though, most of us will find little things to gripe about. truth is that most of us cannot afford these types of cars at this moment. i complained about audi's reputation, liqor about the buttons, but the truth is that no automobile is perfect as they are designed to eventually break.
      i will not own another car until i finish med school and to be able to afford something with the amount of buttons in this audi is a privilege of hard working folk.
      and to finish it if its not the US consumer who is dissatisfied with everything, its the human race in general. hell lindsey lohan is nude in a magazine and people are pissed! what's wrong with society??

      Nice! It looks much more aggressive than the last Avant. Bodes well for an RS4, if only for other than US markets.

      Ahem... Taylor, would that be the "black/gray alcantara with neon yellow double stitching and seat inserts" CTS Coupe interior?

      Busy?

      Anyway, this wagon is hot. The 2.0T is plenty punchy with the six-speed. It just needs an engine note. ANY engine note. And while you're at it, Audi, how 'bout trimming the clutch pedal travel by about 50%?

      I currently drive a 1999 A6 wagon, and I love it. If I was to get a new wagon down the road, I would definitely grab one of these bad boys.

      Looks very aggressively

      I really don't like how all those buttons are by the shifter
      once you spill coffee there once good luck footing up the bill for the electronics - it's not liek Audi is know for top notch electronics quality

      But, I guess next time I buy a car It will be a station wagon - so far the BMW 3-series and C-class are the only two, the G35 will not have a wagon version, so this Audi and the CTS will be the other options, although I want a RWD one, so hopefully the G8 wagon come along as well

      I can't remember another car than this in recent years which DOESN'T have a steeply raked belt/windowline, and that's a good thing. But please, delete those fake front intakes!

      Looks nice but the rear room spacing is pretty bad.
      • 7 Years Ago
      Why would anyone want one of those so-called "crossovers" when you have things like this that pack 50 cubic feet of interior room and looks this good? Please enlighten me...
      • 7 Years Ago
      I dont see it as a crossover, looks like a wagon, similar to a Mercedes I saw recently. Ill call it a wagon. Its not bad looking, but station wagons should have stayed gone.
      • 7 Years Ago
      I dunno, the interior looks a little too busy for my tastes. I still love the CTS Coupes interior most.
