Come on, just look at it.
The US might not get the Audi A4 Avant, but the country does get the automaker’s interesting twist on a vehicle that mixes a wagon and a crossover together—the Audi A4 Allroad. Revealed at the Detroit Auto Show, the new A4 Allroad is based off of the A4 Avant wagon but has a host of upgrades that make it the ideal choice for off-roaders. With more ground clearance, all-wheel drive as standard and a new version of the "Audi Drive Select" that adds a new off-road mode, this all-white wagon is ready for some mud.
In addition to the new mode, the A4 Allroad has larger wheels and a five-link suspension setup at both ends providing 1.3 inches more ground clearance. While Audi has given the wagon a more luxurious look, the rugged characteristic of the vehicle is highlighted by a new rear bumper, flared fenders, roof rails and underbody guard plates. Other than these changes, the A4 Allroad is the same as the new A4. Power will range from TFSI and TDI engines producing from 150 to 272 horsepower and can be matched to a six-speed manual, seven-speed dual-clutch, or eight-speed automatic transmission. US pricing and availability have not been released yet.
