The 3.2-liter V6 engine has been dropped from the lineup. Other than this, changes for 2010 are limited to some reshuffling of content. Bluetooth and Homelink are now packaged together as optional equipment on Premium models, while Premium Plus and Prestige trims gain LED taillights. Prestige models feature standard 3D navigation and the Bang & Olufsen premium audio system is now optional on the Premium Plus.
When it comes right down to it, the A4 Avant Wagon makes so much more sense than the A4 sedan. The shape does not detract from the A4's stellar handling or straight-line performance, nor does it add much weight to the overall design. The Avant Wagon is stylish enough not to be confused with (or ridiculed by association with) those wood-sided station wagons of the past, and the added storage space inside is augmented by additional storage capacity on the elongated roof. With its standard quattro all-wheel drive, the A4 Avant can do everything except tow a trailer and go off-roading, although we're quite sure some Audi loyalists have attempted both. One can't even argue with the A4 Avant's premium price as its closest competitors, the Volvo V50, BMW 3 Series and Subaru Outback, all fall within the same range.
