Following the official announcement of the Audi A4 Avant less than one month ago, the estate version of Audi's best selling mid-sized sedan has made its first public appearance at the Geneva Motor Show. With already 33,000 customers waiting for their cars, the all-new A4 range has sold well as it battles head-to-head with Mercedes' recently launched C-class.
The Avant has grown a startling 12 cm from its predecessor (to 470 cm), boosting a spacious luggage compartment of 490 liters. But thanks to its lightweight steel body the A4 has shed roughly 10% of its weight and weighs 1,470 kg (3,240 lbs). As the A4 Avant goes on sale in the spring in Germany and other European markets, the engine selection will be the following:
- 160 hp 1.8-liter TSI - 250 Nm
- 8.9 s. acceleration (0 - 100 km/h) - 218 km/h
- 7.2 liters / 100 km (32.67 mpg)
- 265 hp 3.2-liter V6 - 330 Nm
- 6.4 s. acceleration - 250 km/h
- 9.1 liters / 100 km (25.85 mpg)*
- 143 hp 2.0-liter TDI - 320 Nm
- 9.7 s. acceleration - 208 km/h
- 5.7 liters / 100 km (41.27 mpg)
- 170 hp 2.0-liter TDI - 350 Nm
- 8.6 s. acceleration - 224 km/h
- 5.8 liters / 100 km (40.55 mpg)
- 265 hp 3.0-liter TDI - 500 Nm
- 6.3 s. acceleration - 250 km/h
- 7.1 liters / 100 km (33.13 mpg)*
* = quattro
The entry-level 120 hp 1.8-litre TFSI will be available in the fall and retail at 27,550 euros. The must have option on this car is the "xenon plus" head light system, which includes the already famous LED daytime running lights, consisting of 14 white dots.
