Audi’s smallest sedan is a little bigger for 2009 with the Audi A4. More than two inches wider on a wheelbase that’s six inches longer than previous models, it’s sure to make an impact on and off the road. The new specifications make it the largest in its class, qualifying the age-old adage that bigger is better. Among other improvements for ’09 are a completely redesigned interior, a more spacious trunk and better fuel economy. What’s best, the new engine and transmission were revamped with an emphasis on speed and triptronic shifts, ensuring that speed demons will be clenching more than just the wheel when driving full speed ahead.
