E the designers had the largest possible loading volume in the In contrast to a chic exterior, apparently not on your note when designing the new A4 Avant: The elegant silhouette of the station wagon is paired with an acceptable 1510 liters maximum trunk volume - 80 liters more than its predecessor. On the other hand, the weight is getting smaller: Depending on the equipment, the A4 Avant is said to have slimmed down by up to 120 kilograms.

Audi A4 Avant: Agile loader

The new Avant is much more relaxed in the hand , the freshly tuned electromechanical steering is much more communicative than before, the A4 turns willingly and without any tendency to understeer. The two diesel variants 2.0 TDI with 190 hp and the three-liter TDI with 272 hp are available to try out. Both are no longer coupled to a manual transmission. A seven-speed dual clutch transmission (S tronic) is responsible for the division of the torque in the 2.0 TDI and an eight-speed automatic transmission (Tiptronic) in the 3.0 TDI.

In addition to these two engines, there is also the 150 PS Diesel, which is also available in an ultra version - Audi calls the most efficient model in each series 'Ultra'. There are also the two two-liter petrol engines with 190 and 252 hp, other versions will follow, including a natural gas variant (G -tron) and a plug-in hybrid.

The change from the continuously variable multitronic gearbox to the modern dual-clutch transmission is a clear step forward. The transmission shifts quickly and imperceptibly, works smoothly with the four-cylinder diesel, the runs just as smoothly as it is quiet.Together with the comfort suspension with damper control (surcharge: 980 euros), the result is an extremely cultivated, mature driving impression - the new A4 looks a class more mature than its operations r. Incidentally, an impression that solidifies when you switch from the 2.0 TDI to the 3.0 TDI.

Audi A4 Avant: Full assistance package

The prices of the 3.0 TDI start at around 52,000 euros, But that's not the only reason why the question arises when driving the A4 whether you still need an A6 if the space is not so important.

The A4 is state-of-the-art when it comes to assistance systems and infotainment, has practically everything that is also available in the larger and more expensive Q7, including partially autonomous traffic jams, efficiency assistants or the collision warning system and emergency braking assistant.

All of this is also available in the cheapest A4 Avant variant, the 150 PS TDI (from 36,900 euros).
