2009 A4 Overview

2009 Audi A4 3.2 Quattro - Click above for high-res image gallery Like nearly every other automotive outlet on the planet, we've become increasingly enamored with Audi's recent product portfolio. From the A3 to the S8, the Q7 to the R8, with all the accolades Audi's received you'd think the crew from Ingolstadt simultaneously cured cancer, rid the world of nuclear weapons and deflected a meteor destined to bring about the next ice-age. But as the praise flowed, Audi's volume model – the A4 – grew tusks that would rival a walrus. The original A4 (B5) debuted when Boys II Men was near the top of the charts and its duo of follow-ups (the Audi B6 and B7, not the trio from Philly) were more technical reworks than thorough overhauls. But a funny thing happened in the process. As the sheet-metal evolved and the interior became a benchmark, underneath, the A4 turned into a credible sports sedan. With the engine migrating closer to the firewall, the all-wheel drive system nearing perfection and the available drivetrains offering a combination of tractability and fuel efficiency, the A4 could be all things to all people – enthusiasts included. So when developing the "all-new" A4, Audi knew it had to hit every note in pitch-perfect harmony. Our First Drive proved that many of the A4's foibles had been left in the past, but until we lived with one for a week, the jury was still sequestered in a hotel, living off an $11 per diem.

Say what you will about the massive grille affixed to modern Audis, its rare that a singular design element has been employed so seamlessly and effectively on such a wide range of vehicles. The gaping maw looks pleasant on the A3, imposing on the Q7 and absolutely sinister on the R8. Matched with the new angular headlamps, LED eyeliner and the subtle protrusion of the front diffuser, the new A4's fascia is both aggressive and elegant. And it needs to be. The profile is as bland as unsalted butter and the rear, particularly when viewed dead-on, is a frumpy rump that contradicts an otherwise taut design. Inside, everything we've come to expect from Audi is available in spades, beginning with the seats. Our tester's thrones, both fore and aft, are comfortable places to spend endless hours on the road, and the biggest complaint levied on the outgoing sedan – it's absolutely abysmal rear leg-room – has finally been addressed. Boasting a 6.6-inch longer wheelbase, a stretch of 4.6-inches in overall length and an additional 2.1-inches in width, there's no bad place to sit in the B8 A4. Manning the helm, we secretly wished Audi would have equipped the A4's tiller with a three-spoke design rather than …
