The Avant IS shorter but not by quite that much!  Here is an extract
from a post I made just over a year ago when I compared the A4 sedan
and Avant while back in merry old England...

   Now on to the A4 Avant.  What a disappointment!  I was expecting the
   Avant to address some of the space problems I have with my sedan, but
   the rear seats are exactly as tight in the wagon as the sedan, and
   the trunk area (when the cover-blind is drawn) is actually SMALLER
   than the sedan - approx 2 inches shorter (according to Audi's
   brochure) and narrower due to the sides being filled-in more than
   the sedan trunk.  Of course, you do have more height to play with, but
   only if you dont mind folks seeing what you've got back there!
