Audi’s presentation of the A4 Allroad at the 2012 North American International Auto Show in Detroit marked the return of the company’s Allroad series in the US automobile market. Audi has stopped the production and distribution of the Allroad series in 2005 due to various reasons. However, the growing needs for this type of vehicle has encouraged Audi to bring this back to the US and try to provide the company’s customers with the option to own an A4 Allroad.
The A4 Allroad is expected to hit the US dealerships this year as the replacement for the Audi A4 Avant. The A4 Allroad takes pride of its single frame grille that makes it look intimidating and capable. In addition to this, the Allroad’s exterior appearance is further enhanced by its side sills and skid plates made of stainless steel. Aside from that, Audi A4 Allroad is also equipped with the aluminum-optic roof rails that serve as its distinguishing feature that makes it different from the A4 Avant.
According to Audi, the A4 Allroad is powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine that uses gasoline. The engine used on the A4 Allroad is capable of producing up to 211 horsepower and 258 lb.-ft. of torque. The engine is mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission that transfers the power generated by the 2.0-liter turbocharged engine to each of the vehicle’s wheels through the company’s Quattro all-wheel drive system.
The A4 Allroad also provides an ample amount of interior space for passengers and cargoes. In fact, its cargo space is about 27 cubic feet when the rear seat is in use and this could easily swell to 50 cubic feet when the rear seat is folded. In addition to this, the A4 Allroad’s seats are made of high-quality materials and this allows the driver and the passengers to seat comfortably while enjoying the ride.
