New Audi A4 Avant unveiled
Five engines will be launched initially; two petrol engines - the 1.8 Turbo FSI 160bhp and 3.2 V6 FSI 265bhp - and three diesels - 2.0-litre TDI 143bhp, 2.7 TDI 190bhp and 3.0 TDI with 240bhp. It's expected to have increase storage capacity over its predecessor with 490 litres, expanding to 1,430 litres with the rear seats down. Trim levels are available in SE or S line specifications and the option of a six-speed manual gear box, a revised six-speed auto tiptronic transmission or the multi-tronic continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). Options include Audi side assist, which uses sensors to warn of vehicles approaching in mirror blind spots, and Audi lane assist, which guards against unintentional lane changes by activating steering wheel vibrations to alert the driver.
