New this year is the 1999 Audi A4 1.8T Avant quattro, a wagon version of the popular sedan. The wagon was previously only offered with the 2.8 engine, but this year comes with the 1.8-liter, 150-hp turbo I4 and 5-speed manual transmission. It is similar to the other 1.8T A4s in terms of its standard feature set (ABS, traction, air conditioning, dual front and front side airbags, leather trimmed knob and wheel, power windows, locks, and mirrors, cruise control), but adds a center console. It also comes standard with a roof rack and a ski bag, which where options on the sedans.
A sports package adds supportive seats and a firmer suspension, while an all-weather package gives you heated seats. A sunroof, trip computer, and steering wheel audi controls are all options. The 1999 A4 1.8T Avant quattro rates well on its all-wheel drive capability, especially in the snow, and the extra storage space, perfect for long trips or outdoor adventures. Drivers feel it is smooth, easy to handle, and comfortable. They wish it had more power and less quality issues. Poor customer service and expensive parts make up the negative comments.
