The estate version of the A4 Saloon is set to arrive at our showrooms in 2016. The model provides all the dramatic looks and advanced technology of its recently-released saloon counterpart, whilst its extra length offers increased space for passengers and luggage. Out on the road, moreover, the estate corners smoothly and pulls away confidently, thanks to its finely tuned suspension and gearbox – not to mention its range of excellent petrol or diesel engines.

Innovation is the driving force behind the estate’s exceptional safety protection. All models arrive with rear parking sensors, which sound an alert as you approach an obstacle when reversing.
They also incorporate Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Audi’s active technology suite. A standard feature that is often reserved for range-topping models is the pop-up bonnet.
It automatically lifts the bonnet away from the engine block when a pedestrian collision is detected, to keep everyone safer.
The S line is fitted with bespoke front and rear bumpers and side skirts, as well as other unique style cues to separate it from the other models.
Within the body is extra evidence of supreme Audi craftsmanship. Aluminium inlays combine with leather upholstery and ambient interior lighting to set the mood for the journey ahead.
As a popular vehicle among family buyers, the A4 Avant offers ample space for five inside, including adult passengers.
The boot is generously sized, too, and holds up to 505 litres of cargo when the rear bench is occupied.
The vehicle’s stretched shape is exaggerated by its low-slung stance.
It crouches over alloy wheels which are fitted with low rolling resistance tyres on the SE and Sport models.
These two variants and the top-of-the-range S line are each equipped with their own exterior styling pack.
SE includes a Titan Black grille with chrome inlays while the Sport features a Twilight Grey matt grille.
No compromises have been made when it comes to the estate’s reliable engine family.
The flagship unit is Audi’s burly 3.0-litre V6 TDI quattro tuned to produce 268bhp. Via the quattro all-wheel drive system, the engine’s 600Nm of maximum torque is channelled to both axles for impressive forward momentum.
Among the diesels is a 2.0-litre ultra powertrain which has been engineered for optimum economy. The 148bhp 2.0-litre ultra with six-speed manual transmission ‘sips’ fuel on the road to return as much as 70.6mpg combined.
Four TFSI petrol engines are further options when specifying the car, including a 2.0-litre with quattro technology.There is plenty more technology in the A4 Avant to control with your hands rather than your feet.
One significant example is the Audi Smartphone Interface which brings mobile content into the vehicle. Many functions can be operated through the MMI controller as part of the MMI Radio Plus system. Information on the status of navigation, audio, telephone calls and more is shown through the seven-inch display. Voice commands can also be used to scroll between actions and select functions.
