Packed with practical features and luxury touches, the 2008 Audi A4 Avant Wagon is powered by a 2.0L 200hp 4-cylinder engine which develops 207 ft-lb of torque @ 1800 RPM. Stylishly understated yet thoroughly roadworthy, the Avant Wagon is engineered to weather the storms and navigate any road. Whether you opt for the base A4 Wagon or go for the premium trim, all Avant Wagons have consistently exceeded all safety and performance criteria they face.
If you are hauling cargo, passengers, or both, the well-balanced Avant Wagon is as agile as a bobcat and sturdy as a grizzly bear. The interior of the A4 will impress the most jaded car critic with its numerous standard features, including: tilt and telescoping steering wheel, air conditioning, sunroof, and power windows. The luxurious upholstery and stylish wood and alloy accents add a level of richness not seen in any other wagon. Add an FM/AM radio and CD changer for an outstanding compliment to the car’s ambiance.
To carry precious human cargo, Audi backs up its luxurious packaging with concomitant safety features including: front driver and passenger airbags, and side curtain torso protective airbags. The 2008 Audi A4 Avant Wagon has passed the NHTSA criteria for frontal crashes with a 4-star rating. For side crashes, the Avant Wagon front seat tests earned 5 stars and for rear seat tests, 4 stars. When it comes to defensive driving, the Avant Wagon puts an amazing amount of control in the driver’s hands with the almost supernatural capability of electronic stability control.
At the risk of overstatement, we are impressed with the 2008 Audi A4 Avant Wagon from all viewpoints. Maneuvering the large Avant Wagon through traffic or on a winding road is smooth and effortless with Audi’s phenomenal 4-wheel drive. We doubt you will ever challenge the A4’s anti-lock brakes the way we did, to attempt to put the A4 into a 4-wheel power slide. We were also surprised and pleased at the Avant’s gas mileage, 22mpg city, 30mpg highway, putting the icing on the cake.
