Audi has released several images of their new A4 allroad ahead of the wagon's official debut at the Geneva Motor Show next month.
The new wagon features many of the all-terrain styling cues of its bigger brother, the A6 allroad, such as flared wheel arches, angular sills, stainless-steel underbody guards, and the company's trademark single-frame grille. Other exterior design features include chrome trim around the front fog lights, standard 17-inch wheels, LED daytime running lights, and a roof rack.
At launch two diesels and one petrol engine will be offered, thankfully all three feature forced induction and direct-injection. Petrolheads get Audi's 2.0 TFSI engine which is rated at 155 kW (211 bhp) and 350 Nm of torque. Performance figures for the engine include a 0-100 km/h time of 6.9 seconds, a top speed of 230 km/h (142.92 mph), and an average fuel consumption of 8.1 liters per 100 km (29.04 mpg US). On the diesel side there is a 2.0 TDI with 125 kW (170 bhp) and 350 Nm of torque as well as a 3.0-liter V6 TDI engine which cranks out 176 kW (240 bhp) and 500 Nm of torque. With the 2.0 TDI the A4 allroad runs from 0-100 km/h in 8.9 seconds, hits a top speed of 213 km/h (132.35 mph), and averages 6.4 liters of fuel per 100 km (36.75 mpg US). The range topping 3.0 TDI takes 6.4 seconds to reach 100 km/h, tops out at 236 km/h (146.64 mph), and consumes an average of 7.1 liters of fuel per 100 km (33.13 mpg US).
Helping to enhance the allroad's all-terrain credentials over the standard A4 Avant is a 20 mm increase in track, an increased ride height, and offroad detection technology which alters the car's stability program to allow for more wheel spin. However, missing is an the adapative air suspension like it's A6 allroad big brother.
Inside, the wagon features Audi's stellar A4 interior which mixes modern design with high quality materials. With all the seats up the wagon boasts 490 liters (17.30 cubic feet) of luggage room but that increases to 1,430 liters (50.50 cubic feet) when the rear seats are folded down. Optional equipment includes a two-piece panoramic glass roof, three-zone climate-control, and a sound system from Bang & Olufsen.
Look for the A4 allroad to be in dealerships early this summer with a basic price of €37,100.
