2009 Audi A4 Avant: Clear is the New Clever

I disagree with Scott Oldham's recent complaint about the 2009 Audi A4 Avant's instrument panel.

I look at the compact screen between the tachometer and speedometer and think what a great job Audi did putting eight separate pieces of information into such a small space, while making it look uncluttered and totally readable.

In one glance I know how many miles I've traveled, how much fuel I have left, time, date, ambient temp, odometer and trip miles, plus selected gear and radio station.

And all without pushing a single button.

Perhaps our editor in chief needs some new specs.
