What’s New for ’09
- The 2.0T Front Trak model, pairing the 2.0L Turbocharged 4-cyl. engine with a continuously-variable transmission, joins the redesigned lineup, and is available exclusively in front-wheel drive.
- 4The new 4-cyl., direct-injected turbocharged engine generates increases in both horsepower and torque compared to the engine it replaces while providing improved fuel economy, along with, according to Audi, faster 0-60 MPH (0-97 km/h) acceleration than other key German and Asian competitors in the segment.
- .The redesigned suspension, which makes extensive use of aluminum and more closely mirrors that of the larger A6 and A8, features speed-sensitive, variable-ratio power-assisted steering and standard stability control, which can be deactivated under certain conditions to allow for more spirited driving.
- The vehicle is both wider and longer than the outgoing model, yet features increased torsional rigidity, along with more aggressive styling, lower height, early-sloping roof line and is up to 10% lighter, depending on model.
