Although the common European currency keeps getting stronger against the dollar beating one historical maximum after another, the European automakers still have no problems at selling their cars.
At least, when it comes to such refined street-legal performance vehicles as the 2008 Audi A4 Avant 2.0 TFSI sports wagon, car enthusiasts throughout the world can’t resist its technocratic beauty.
The vehicles will be equipped with WAG’s refreshed TFSI 2.0-liter four-banger.
While the powerplant that keeps this estate going won’t impress anybody with neither with its displacement, nor with the sound that it makes, the engine is still capable of delivering up to 211hp and 258 lb-ft of torque featuring an increase in power of 11hp and in peak torque of 51 lb-ft over the previous version. With all this power available at a push of the pedal, the 2008 Audi A4 Avant 2.0 TFSI takes only 6.5 seconds to jump from zero to 60mph.

Price is yet to be announced, but on the North American market the German car will have to compete against the BMW 3-Series Touring edition, Saab 9-3 SportCombi and Subaru Outback.
