2009 Audi A4 Avant: Avant, not Wagon
August 11, 2010
Avant? I had to look it up. According to Merriam-Webster online:
Etymology: French avant- fore-, front, from avant before, from Latin abante
Definition: culturally or stylistically advanced
So there you go. Our long-term 2009 Audi A4 Avant is stylistically advanced, and is perhaps the best small wagon out there. However, it isn't called a wagon because vehicles marketed as such in the U.S disintegrate slowly on the sales floor.
I like our A4 Avant, but prefer the sedan version myself.
