2009 Audi A4 Avant: Behind the Scenes

July 21, 2010

A month ago today we published Corvettemageddon, a generational comparison test of these beasts. But there were some key players behind the scenes that you didn't get to see. One of the more instrumental roles (camera car) was filled by our 2009 Audi A4 Avant. And yes, that is the A4 in the background.

Take the jump backstage.

Our recently departed Audi S5 also participated. But the A4's rear hatch and smoother ride made it more practical from a photography standpoint.

Strategically (and safely) wedging one's body into the A4's rear hatch area allows for shots like this.

Some days on the job are better than others. So now comes the hard part. Which one of these would you choose?
