Audi has announced that the Allroad, its jacked-up all-wheel-drive station wagon, will go back to the U.S. The A6 is the lone Audi Allroad model left that’s available in the U.S. Since that time, Audi had discontinued the A6 Avant altogether, which makes a lower-volume upgrade trim such as the Allroad quite unfeasible.
However, Audi is now working on making the Allroad come back but it will be smaller. It’s likely that the A4 Allroad would be the model that will be revived and will feature the gray bumpers, wider track, and extra ground clearance.
The A4 Allroad is offered in Europe with the 2.0-liter turbo four that’s on the A4, as well as 2.0-liter and 3.0-liter turbo-diesels. It’s also likely that there would also be a 2.0T gas engine. This coincides with the current A4′s mid-cycle facelift.
It’s logical that it will come for the 2014 model year, coming after and mirroring the facelift done on the 2013 A5 model, according to Caranddriver. Those who wonder why the bigger A6 Avant or its Allroad version isn’t available in Europe should know that the U.S. will receive low-volume products from Audi that are halo vehicles such as the TT RS and RS5.
Audi will be launching the new A4 All-Road Quattro with the new improved ground clearance and all-wheel drive technology. This is a compelling choice for people looking for an SUV that’s fun to take anywhere.
Even on rough roads, The A4 is destined to provide comfort and an unparalleled driving experience. Audi’s All-Road Quattro has the latest innovations that brought us the best A4 model. This places the Audi A4 on the same level as the others with this most powerful yet energy efficient model range.
The A4’s driver assistance, multi-media, S-tronic transmission and Drive select technology are all standard features of Audi. The 2.0 TDI variant comes with the twin tailpipes while the 3.0 TDI and 2.0 TFSI has one on each side.
Audi’s latest SUV model measures 4.72m long with a wheelbase of 2.8m, 1.84m wide and 1.50m long. Unlike the former A4 Avant, the All-Road Quattro’s ground clearance is better now at 180mm when unloaded.
Still, the All-Road Quattro’s overall design is quite similar to the A4 Avant. This is evident on the beautiful curves and smooth lines around the exterior surface. The underguards for the front and at the tail end comprise of stainless steel. Meanwhile, the single frame radiator grille in moon-grey is enhanced with chrome accents.
If there is more, the big bumper with large air intakes along with Audi A4’s low roofline is unmistakably coupé. This feature blends flawlessly with the fog light’s chrome that circle around it. The All-Road Quattro model is also offered with the standard Xenon Plus headlamps, daytime running lights and taillights in LED.
The new SUV catches more attention with its angular sills and flare wheel arches with optional stainless steel inserts. The A4 is equipped with 17-inch wheels in standard 7-arm design. All of these get along perfectly with Audi A4’s built-in roof rails and integrated horizontal reflectors at the rear.
The latest Audi A4 All-Road Quattro will be out this summer. Be ready to shell out at least 37,100 euros if you want to take this baby home with you.
