Great Wagon

2009 Audi A4 Salsa - Newport Beach, CA 12/26/2011

Had wanted a sporty wagon for a number of year and finally got it. Originally wanted the Outback turbo, but they stopped making it. Same for the BMW 5 Series Wagon, the A6 Wagon and the Passat Wagon. I was left with looking at a BMW 3 series wagon, the A4 Avant, the Jetta Wagon and the Acura TSX wagon - the new Subaru Outback has gotten too SUV like and while its very practical, the handling/driving experience has gone downhill. The Jetta was just not upscale enough and the TSX is front wheel drive, a bit underpowered and a very difficult back seat to get into. Both the 3 Series Wagon the A4 are hard to find and the 2012 A4 Avant is the last year Audi will make it (it's being replaced with an A4 Allroad for 2013). Anyway, test drove both cars and really like the A4 Avant - a bit larger and better gas mileage. But I really liked the look of it better, was able to get a very good deal on it with very attractive financing. I got a Monsoon Gray/Blk with Premium Plus and NAV. It's a beautiful wagon (a friend described it as "sexy"). Handles really well with very good - though not great - power. Power is the only category that the BMW had the advantage. I've only got about 2,500 miles on the Avant, but I really love driving it. My only complaints are that I wish the rear area was a bit bigger for my dog and that the MMI NAV system is not particularly intuitive to me and I'm going to need to spend more time with the manual and practicing things.

First Audi Experience

2009 Audi A4 Shimi - Orlando FL 07/27/2012

Excellent choice I was looking at Mercedes C and E Class (E class was a little over what I was wanting to spend) - Cadillac CTS, BMW 3 series and for the value the A4 gave me more of what I was looking for. Sharp vehicle inside and out lots of fun features, great performance and pick up for a 4 cylinder turbo engine, also great on gas. Would have loved the A6 but a little more than I wanted to spend as this is my second car. I would strongly consider the A6 over the E Class and BMW 5 Series for my next purchase. Audi has come a long way and after doing all my research and speaking with friends who own shops/mechanics they say that Audi is a safe buy when it comes to reliability. Again very comfortable, smooth ride, great accessories, Audi Symphony Stereo all great quality. Large trunk space for at least 2-3 sets of golf clubs and plenty of space for the driver vs some of the competition.

Audi A4 Convert

2009 Audi A4 NotMyNewCar - Southern California 10/23/2011

Stunner on the road, but underpowered as a machine. In city/hwy mix, haven't gotten more than 21mpg, around 20 mostly, on premium gas. Convert has limited head room, and despite many seat settings, none seem all that comfortable. Back seat is unusable, even for kids. Real lack of interior storage space. Uses oil as if it is leaking out, ("usual, with turbos", what?!). Carry two quarts in my trunk. This car is on lease, around $600 a month, with additional mileage. I am looking forward to returning it and pocketing the difference in the cost of my next car. Most cars start out as "my new car", become "my car" after the bloom is off the rose and finally becomes "my *** car". I am at that stage now, after 30 months of leasing. This car is like the experience of being married to a beautiful but contentious spouse. Performance ultimately undermines appearance.

2009 Audi A4 Overview

With a comprehensive redesign, the Audi A4 is a different car than i was when the 2008 model year came out. The outside is sleeker and wider now, and the inside is roomier, allowing for a higher level of comfort for the driver and passengers. A 6.3" longer wheelbase made for more comfort for rear-seat passengers, allowing for adults to fit much more easily than in past models. In short, Audi listened when its customers said they loved their cars but . The changes were much-needed, and the company delivered.

2009 Audi A4 History

Audi has been a strong company for years, and when they started bringing their cars to American soil they offered sporty lines and sleek options.The 2009 model offered:

  • An extra inch of rear-seat legroom
  • The option of a 2.0L turbocharged engine
  • A V6 version without the turbocharger

How It Drives

The Audi A4 drives the way one would expect, with class and style, but also with that sports car feel that the company provides. The handling is strong and the steering is responsive, giving the 2009 A4 a great feel. Both the four-cylinder and the six-cylinder versions of the A4 have their advantages, with the V6 being a bit heavier. However, drivers will not really notice the extra weight in the way the car handles. The four-cylinder matches the six-cylinder in acceleration due to the turbocharger, and is identical up to 80 mph, where the V6 gains an advantage due to the higher level of horsepower.

Used 2009 Audi A4 Value

The V6 version of the 2009 Audi A4 had an MSRP of $35,850, while the four-cylinder version was priced just over $16,000 lower. That is a considerable difference, and the used value of the vehicles reflects that. Audis hold their value well, and a 2009 A4 can be purchased for around $25,000 for the V6 version, and around $13,000 for the four-cylinder option.

Design & Performance

The sleek design of the 2009 Audi A4 gives drivers all the comfort and sports car feel they crave, providing plenty of strong performance to appreciate. The four-cylinder and six-cylinder options both offer strong acceleration, with 211 and 265 horsepower, respectively. The variable valve timing that was added to the 2009 model is an upgrade from the 2008 version, adding horsepower and torque to the engine. That, coupled with the sophisticated lines Audi always strives to provide, has made the 2009 A4 model a great choice for a sporty feel that melds with elegance.

Powertrain & Engine

The strength of the A4 is in the powertrain and the engine, where many give the advantage to the four-cylinder option. The torque is higher than what is offered with the V6 model, and the only difference in speed and power is in excess of 80 mph. Since most people do not drive that fast, at least very often, there is no solid advantage to purchasing the V6. The Audi A4 offers:

  • The choice between four-cylinder and V6 engines
  • 211 horsepower or 265 horsepower based on engine choice
  • 258 lb-ft of torque on the 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder
  • 19 mpg for the four-cylinder and 22 mpg for the V6

Body Style & Interior Comfort

In the past, Audi had struggled with providing a comfortable, roomy interior for the driver and passengers. The 2008 A4 really only accommodated children and very small adults in the back seat, but the longer wheelbase and extra inch of rear legroom in the 2009 model has helped change that. The rear seat is now adult-friendly, which is a game changer for Audi and what the company can offer its customers. Some of its options include:

  • Cloth or leather for personal choice and comfort
  • Elegance while retaining a sporty feel
  • Sleek lines to turn heads
  • A weight balance that makes the car intuitively easy to handle

Audi has long been known for its quality and style over the years, and the 2009 A4 is no exception to the rule. With the changes that were made to it from the 2008 model year, it is a better, more well-rounded car for consumers to enjoy.
