Yet more praise for the excellent redesigned 2009 A4. Autoblog.com just reviewed the 3.2 quattro version, which looks like it may have been the exact same 2009 Audi A4 Automoblog.net reviewed in March, much to the same praise.
Just as everyone else in the automotive world right now, Autoblog was amazed at how good the A4 was, saying it’s “too good for its own good.” They also said that the 3.2-liter V6 in the A4 was good, but would take the “2.0-liter turbo nine-times-out-of-ten.” A good engine, but I like the smoothness and power of the 3.2. Unlike Autoblog, I’m not happy about Audi nixing the V6 next year.
They also stated:
The A4 is “easily in range of the segment stalwart, BMW 335i. We’d be lying if we said the A4 was just as entertaining as the Bimmer, but the security of all-wheel drive, the top-notch interior and the choice of a four-cylinder could easily put the Audi at the top of the list. And given the choice between the two we’d almost be compelled to pick the A4… almost.”
Seeing as how every semi-successful business person working in a downtown skyscraper trying to impress the neighbors has a 3-series, I’d chose the A4 every time.
