“The A4 is arguably the best-looking of the new Audis” - Car and Driver, 2006 Audi A4 review, December 2004
Tested in Arizona's Sonoran desert by the journalists at the Driving.com web magazine, Audi's then-new 2006 A4 demonstrated it had a lot to offer. Their take?
On its mechanical underpinnings: “More than its redesign, it's the new A4's technologies and mechanicals that are being 'upped' to compete against its compact-sized, premium-segment rivals….”
On its power: “The larger motor, a naturally aspirated 3.1-litre, V6 that made its debut in the new Audi A6 last fall, delivers 255 horsepower and 243 ft.-lb.. of torque at 3,250 rpm.”
On its performance: “For everyday driving, and through the twisting, wicked turns of Tucson's Saguaro National Park, the four-banger is more than spirited. The FSI technology lessens the amount of throttle required to accelerate — just a tap of the foot propels the A4.”
On its Tiptronic® transmission: “Though it's rare that I opt for an automatic, I easily caved in to the ways of the six-speed auto (equipped with Tiptronic manual-shifting mode).”
On the interior: “Audi's interiors have long been an industry favorite in quality and fit and finish — not much has changed. For 2006, the steering wheel design mimics the shape of the grille, and dual cup holders get updated.”
That's a lot to like.
Offered here is a 2006 Audi A4 Quattro Avant in Dakar Beige Metallic over beige. Sold new at Maple Hill Audi in Kalamazoo, Michigan where it has been owned since by the same individual, the A4's odometer reads 74,112 miles. That's fewer than 5,000 miles per-year on average since new. The car is very well-equipped including Navigation Plus, Technology Package, Premium Package, Audio Package, and Cold Weather Package among other options. (Please see the included factory window sticker---shown in the photo gallery--for a full list of standard and optional features.)
The exterior metallic paint on this A4 Avant (Audispeak for “station wagon”) is in exceptionally well-maintained condition. Gloss, color, and even application; virtually showroom-new in appearance. Body panels—including the lower front valance and the tailgate—are free of dings, dents, scuffs, or other damage. Chrome and brushed-metal body trim—on the window surrounds, grille, and roof rails—has been properly cared-for and retains original condition. (To best assess the quality of the paint and trim finishes, be sure to view the close-up photographs of the car in the accompanying gallery.) Cabin glass (including on the power sunroof) and all lighting lenses are pristine, free of cracks, fading or other damage. Factory 5-(split-)spoke, 17-inch alloy wheels with Audi-logo center caps are mounted with Continental® 235/45 all-season tires. (Delamination is noted on wheels and center caps.) All factory badging—including 4-rings logo emblems front and rear, and model and engine designations on the tailgate—remains properly in place.
Inside, Audi's well-deserved reputation for quality materials and industry-leading fit and finish is on display everywhere. Beige leather seat upholstery is clean and free of any damage. Matching door trim is similarly well-preserved. Genuine burled-wood trim, on the console, dash, and door trim is especially pleasing and free of damage. A darker brown steering wheel frames the instrument cluster in a like-color dash. All graphic markings on the instruments and control surfaces are sharp and unworn; gauge lenses are clear. The shift lever for the Tiptronic® automatic transmission is mounted on the console. The factory audio unit (with glove-box-mounted cd changer) remains in place. Beige carpeting covers the cabin floors and continues into the cargo area. Virtually every interior surface retains its near-original look and feel.
Under the hood, the 3.2-liter, direct-injection, 255-horsepower V6 is centermost in a very clean and orderly engine bay. All components are properly in place and no modifications are noted. Viewed from below, the car's chassis is straight and free of damage. Only expected light surface rust on untreated is noted. The car's below-engine protective panel remains mounted.
The Audi's original factory-mounted build and identification tags remain mounted. Its window sticker and original documents are included in the sale.
