What Is New for 2006?
The Audi A4 has a couple of new Powertrain choices this season for its V6. Specifically, the V6 is now able to be outfitted with a six-speed guide on all-wheel-drive sedans and wagons. The V6 can also be arranged this year to get a front-drive A4 sedan with all the constantly variable transmission (CVT). The only other important change this season is that the “S-line” title for the game package.
Body Styles, Trim Levels, and Options
The Audi A4 is available as a sedan, wagon (called the Avant) or two-door convertible (Cabriolet). The four trim levels — 1.8T, 3.0, 2.0T and 3.2 — correspond with what sort of motor under the hood. 1.8T (convertible only) and 2.0T models come standard with things such as dual-zone automatic climate control, a power driver seat, an in-dash six-CD changer and, for convertibles, an automated high. Even the 3.0 and 3.2 are likewise equipped, but also have larger wheels, leather seats with a power front-passenger chair and genuine wood interior trim.
Audi provides a lot of optional packages, such as an S-line game suspension package and a Cold Weather package. Whether a different package or as a standalone alternative, an individual may also receive an A4 with a Bose audio system, satellite radio, HID headlights, auto-dimming mirrors and a navigation system.
Powertrains and Performance
About the Audi A4 convertible, you can select either the 1.8T, that has a 170-HP turbocharged inline, or the 3.0, with a 220-HP V6. About the sedan and Avant, you’ve got the choice of the 2.0T, a turbo four with 200 HP, or the 3.2, a 255-HP V6. Quattro all-wheel drive is standard on the wagon and readily available for the sedan and convertible. Sedans and wagons using quattro may be outfitted with a six-speed manual transmission or a semi-automatic automatic. The 3.0 convertible quattro comes just with a five-speed automatic, and front-wheel-drive A4s are only available using the CVT.
Interior Design and Special Features
High-quality stuff, solid construction and a sleek, contemporary design make this kind of car you’ll enjoy every single time you get in. The chairs can be on the side and some of the controls take a while to become used to, however, the general design is just one of the finest in the section. Wagons provide 27.8 cubic feet of luggage capacity with the rear seats up and 60.6 when they are folded.
The 2006 Audi A4 is one of the very balanced automobiles in the entry-luxury section concerning ride and handling. It is comforting in daily driving since the suspension soaks up most bumps and potholes. A4s equipped with all the S-line package supply expanded handling capacities. While the A4 is not as razor-sharp since the 3 Series, the excess grip afforded by quattro could warrant the trade-off for several motorists.
