Audi of America plans to charge $32,700 and $34,500 respectively for the sedan and station wagon versions of the 2009 Audi A4. With the 2009 Audi A4 Avant officially unveiled at the March 2008 Geneva Motor Show, the German car manufacturer effectively completed overhaul of the model range that brings the fattest stream of cash to their bank account.

Going on sale in September 2008, the car will be available for test drives starting on August 10th, but, as far as I know, some dealerships already have both the Avant and sedan on premises, so, if you seriously consider getting one of this controversial babies and just can’t wait to see it in metal and leather, you can at least go to your local AD’s show room, have a look and probably even touch a button or two inside the car.

Audi says that the sedan will be delivered with a choice of two engines and none of which will be a diesel, which is really a pity since their new oil-burners deliver an almost unbeatable combination of power and efficiency that even such overhyped hybrids like Toyota Prius can only dream about.

The entry level model will be equipped with a front-wheel drive and a 2.0-liter, 211hp TFSI engine and the top of the line A4 sedan will get a Quattro system powered by a 3.2-liter, 265hp FSI V6 powerplant.

The A4 Avant model will be available only with the 2.0-liter TFSI engine and the Quattro AWD system. Well, the engine may be small but it’s still capable of getting the car from zero to 60mph in only 6.5 seconds.
