v533399ixzhjzye.jpg"We will build one car in three different sizes."  It's good to know that Audi, the world leader in design, subscribes to SDP (sausage design philosophy). As we can see from the first press shots of the new Audi A4 wagon, the new A4 wagon looks a lot like the sedan with extra space in the back. (Although Audi hasn't officially announced it, rumors has it that the second row of seats will fold down to enhance cargo space.) Audi is also pleased to announce the arrival of its new "Audi Music Interface." As you might expect (nobody expects the unexpected from Audi), AMI owners can connect their iPods to the car's stereo system. This puts Audi's entertainment options on a par with the Ford Focus (does it have voice control like the Focus? I don't think so). Other "news:" Audi will be building the A4 wagon with a torquey 3.0-liter diesel stumping-up 240 horses and 370ft.-lbs.of torque. Is that engine coming to the U.S.? Let's put it this way: if there had been any such announcement, you'd have heard me proclaiming it from my house in New York. Which you can't, because I'm asleep from boredom with the new A4 wagon.
