Re: New A4 in 10 Best? (A4Jetta)
Here is the text:
"Audi's new A4 earns 10 Best honors for its innovative continuously variable transmission alone. This wondrous gearbox, or should we say beltbox, achieves the elusive goal of simultaneously enhancing performance and fuel economy. And it does so unobtrusively, without any intergalactic whines or hums.
This CVT is only available on front-drive A4's, but the four-wheel drive and manual-transmission versions are equally satisfying in their own ways. The new A4's chip-off-the-A6 styling is classy and attractive. Its interior is a skosh roomier in the rear seat and takes Audi's beautifully tailored look to new levels of classic elegance.
Underneath, this latest generation of the A4 employs tauter suspension components than its predecessors, beefier brakes, larger wheels and tires, and a more powerful optional V-6. This hardware, calibrated with Audi's usual deft touch, adds up to the fastest and most sporting A4 lineup we've ever seen.
All that and a revolutionary transmission destined to redefine our understanding of automatics! How could we resist?"
