This is the best driving car I have ever owned. I had the 2006 A6 Avant and traded it for this. The 2.0T is so much smoother and shifts so much better. The A6 had a jumpy start unless you squeezed the gas peddle just right and when going up hill it would stay in 2nd too long, sounded like a rocket. The A4 2.0T Quattro is much quieter and smoother to drive. The loss in space is unnoticeable to me, it has plenty of space.
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.
I've always been a fan of powerful vehicles, and for the price, this car can't be beat! It's quickness is unparalleled, and it is fast. Needless to say I am a fan of luxuriously fast cars, I didn't really know what I was getting myself into until I sat behind the wheel on the interstate. I love this car, because I honestly feel like I purchased a vehicle that was made for me.
