My Take: The Avant is pretty much a fancy word for “Wagon”. If there is a wagon worth getting though, its the A4 (the S4 would be ideal). I’m rather surprised how low the residual value of the Avant is for 36-months. It barely cracks 50% in 36months (based on a 12k mile/yr lease). I guess Audi Financial Services’ low money factor helps keep the price reasonable, but I’m still expecting a $500+ monthly payment plus inception fees.
