2009 Audi A4 And Avant Get More Powerful Engines For Wagon Maximizing

We could barely contain our excitement when we saw the first pictures of the 2009 A4 Avant, a fine wagon if there ever was one. Audi has now released details on the power lineup for the US market and, while diesels aren't in the picture yet, we will be getting an upgraded version of the 2.0 TFSI inline-four good for 211 horsepower and 258 lb.-ft. of torque. That's enough juice to carry the entry-level A4 to 60 mph in 6.5 seconds.

The optional 3.2-Liter V6 will still be in the picture, but it is important to point out that the increase in torque (51 lb.-ft. to be exact) means the turbocharged four puts out more torque for less money. A steptronic gearbox is also an option when the vehicle goes on sale this October. [Source: Audi via World Car Fans]
