The Audi A4 Wagon has made a remarkable comeback with not much change from its old, 2006 model. The changes made for the A4 Wagon are to standardize its features to make it competitive in the market. Audi also offers several upgrades on this year’s model.
The 2012 A4 Wagon is basically an entry-level type of luxury car that comes with a single-engine option: a four-cylinder 2.0-liter turbocharged engine. This makes the A4 Wagon quite an option of oddity, knowing that there are other competitors in the market for entry-level cars that have engines that come in a six-cylinder form. However, the A4 Wagon proves that its four-cylinder engine is competitive enough being that it can catch up with the speed and fuel efficiency that six-cylinder engine equipped cars can provide. The handling of this car is remarkable and it maintains equilibrium with its combination of sportiness and comfort.
The strongest aspect of the A4 Wagon is actually its cabin, which is built for comfort and luxury. Audi made sure that the best materials are used to give its artistic and lavishly contemporary interior look. Consumers are assured that it is built with genuine materials to provide great comfort. For people who enjoy loud music, there are sound system options available for and added cost, as well as other upgrades, like a sophisticated MMI navigation system. The A4 Wagon has enough space for luggage and other personal belongings. However, consumers who would need more cargo space might want to consider getting the A4 Avant Wagon; an upgraded version of the A4 Wagon.
The 2012 Audi A4 Wagon comes in different levels of trim: the Premium, Prestige and Premium Plus. The standard 17-inch wheels made out of alloy are included in the premium trim as well. It also features a sunroof, automatic wipers, as well as headlights, fog lamps, leather upholstery and more. With the Premium Plus and Prestige trim package, consumers would enjoy having more sophisticated features included such as an Audi Multi Media Interface that is a dash mounted, sound scheme that comes in 10-speaker form and can be enjoyed together with its CD/DVD player. There is also an audio jack for headsets and a satellite radio to make sure you are up-to-date on the latest news.
With regards to the engine performance, the Audi A4 Wagon’s is just enough, with 211 horses under the hood and 258 pound-feet torque. There is not much of an option with the engine since it only comes with the Quattro or the automatic.
The 2012 Audi A4 Wagon is an ideal choice for an entry-level luxury car. Its main features are adequate enough, especially with its steering and suspension. So, consumers should think twice before having add-ons installed, since its basic standard trim is just right for its main base.
