2009 A6 Avant – Audi’s Largest Wagon

Jan 20

It is no secret that Audi makes the most beautiful Avant (wagon,) but what do you do when the A4 is just a little too small? Well the answer is: try the 2009 A6 Avant on for size. The A6 is #1 in sales for executive vehicles so who would have ever guessed that the Avant would be so appealing to the eye? The wagon pictured at the Portland Audi dealer is powered by Audi’s newest engine, the 3.0T. So not only is it very functional for utility use, but also very fun to drive. The A6 Avant will be on a much more limited production run then its smaller sibling the A4, so if this wagon the vehicle for you then make sure to put your name on the list as soon as possible.

In my opinion, the A6 is screaming for updated styling… I think some design cues from the other models need to be applied. Perhaps more of the aggressive lines and fascia from the 09 A4 need to migrate up, and some of the edgier lines over from the TT.

To me. the front looks bulbous and the rear squatty…

I hope to not offend any owners reading this, just my lowly opinion. To each his/her own. 🙂

Jason, The 2009 A6 model only got a facelift this year from the 2008 model year. The real update was in the powertrain with a the 3.0T supercharged V6 available under the hood. This engine has the best of both worlds, power and fuel economy.

Looks good! The A6 Avant is definitely the best looking estate on the market. We have a 2007 model, and I’ve always thought it is strange how they programed the rear turn signals to use the LEDs instead of the amber bulb which is clearly in there. I see they’ve made a white stripe in them now, maybe they changed it. Just a small detail really.

From Pete Hennighausen on January 23rd, 2009

The tail light “configuration” on pre MY09 cars is due to the US-lighting laws. This was “solved” for MY09 with the newly designed tail lights.

PS – I have a 2008 A6 3.2 Avant, and I love it.

1. Performance

Every part in the machine counts.

With our vehicles being developed from the ground up around the world famous & award winning Quattro All-wheel drive, it is no wonder we are the leader in performance.

With countless victories and developments in Le Mans, Rally racing, Pikes Peak, and touring car championships, we build the most competitive All-wheel drive cars in the world. If you are looking for that unfair advantage, welcome to Audi, you have found it.

2. Safety

Why die, when you can live?

Brought to you by the company that pioneered safety standards and crash testing almost 100 years ago, with Audi there is no compromise in safety.

Available with technical advancements such as side guard head protection, Side Assist, adaptive headlights, three point safety belts and many other award winning safety systems as well as L.E.D lighting.

3. Design

Everyone wants to look good right?

Bold dynamic lines with moving surfaces, coupe like design and an aggressive stance on the road whether moving or standing still.

Audi has set itself apart from the rest of the industry with driver oriented cockpits and the leader of interior craftsmanship, materials and fit and finish. Keep in mind our extensive use of aluminum, space frame technology and low center of gravity give you that true Audi experience inside and out.

4. Versatility

Sometimes abundance is not enough.

If you want it, Audi has it. And if you have heard of it, it is most likely an option. Audi builds the most versatile cars in the world. Four door sedan or sport back, Coupe or Sport utility vehicle, big or small, front wheel drive or Quattro, gas fuel or diesel - and you still have to pick a color.

We build vehicles that will truly win races and pick up the groceries on the way home. If you let an Audi tell you it's story, it will never disappoint or disconnect you from the experience.

5. Value

Yes, fair value exchange does exist.

Whether you go with a new Audi and get a 4-year 50k mile warranty, or the certified pre-owned Audi with the most comprehensive 300 + point inspection and up to 6 years, 100k miles, you will not only get the best car on the market,
you will gain piece of mind!

And really, you can't put a price on that.
