The 2007 A4 3.2 Avant Wagon is a 5-passenger compact wagon that, over the years has emerged as a popular crossover type vehicle. Sporting two trim levels and engines, the 2.0T Avant Quattro, 3.2 Avant Quattro are both 4-wheel drive, one housing a turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine, and the other a 3.2-liter V6. Either engine comes with your choice of 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic transmission.
Compared with last year’s model, the 2007 is roomier, more stylish, and higher spirited. For example, the 2.0 liter 4-cylinder engine develops 200 horsepower (149kW), while the 3.2 liter V-6 powers up to 255 hp (190kW) @ 6500 rpm with 243 lb-ft (328 Nm) @ 3250 rpm. To make a good thing even better, the A4 Avant Wagon also offers a performance-oriented “S Line” option that not only looks good but better equips it for road calisthenics, including 18-inch wheels and beefier 235/40 boots. Depending on whether you are carrying extra passengers or not, the cavernous A4 opens up to hold 28 or 60 cubic feet of cargo space.
Plenty of standard equipment adds value to an already solid automobile, including dual zone environmental controls and air, power locks, standard moonroof on the V6, and CD with 6-disc changer. Option packages help outfit each model with a ton of technological wonders and comfort touches. The Premium Package offered for the 2.0T includes a moonroof, cowhide upholstery and 17-inch wheels. Catering more to your needs on the road, the A4 Wagon offers an optional Convenience Package with a garage door activator, intelligent wipers, a power passenger seat, self-dimming bi-xenon headlights, an event odometer and self-darkening mirrors. Not included in a particular package, are individual options like Sirius satellite radio, satellite navigation, parking proximity alert, plus attractive natural and alloy trim.
The 3.2 liter V6 boasts a fuel consumption of 17 mpg city, 21 mpg highway, while the miserly 2.0L gets 19 mpg city and 27 mpg highway. Unparalleled safety is the goal of the engineers at Audi, and by the looks of the A4 Wagon, their goal is accomplished. The A4 Wagon offers standard front and side airbag protection for passengers as well as driver, child seat attachments (LATCH), 4-wheel ABS, stability and traction control, and security locks. The ride and handling of the A4 surprises and gratifies with agility and power. The 2007 Audi A4 Avant Wagon is a sporty yet practical wagon that adds the fun of high performance to a rather traditional vehicle.
