All-new Audi A4 Allroad to go on sale Summer 2016

Published 11 January 2016

Audi has announced the all-wheel drive Allroad version of the A4 Avant, which will go on sale in the Summer and is expected to cost from around £33,000. It has 34mm greater ground clearance over an ordinary A4 Avant and features an off-road setting in the Audi Drive Select menu, along with beefier styling.

The engine range includes one TFSI petrol option producing 252PS and 370Nm of torque, with official economy of 44.1mpg and emissions of 147g/km. Alongside this there will be diesel variants with outputs ranging from 150PS to 272PS, in capacities of 2.0-litre or 3.0-litre.

Economy figures for the 150PS diesel are to be confirmed, but the 190PS variant promises 128g/km of CO2 and economy of 57.7mpg when equipped with an automatic transmission. All variants have all-wheel drive as standard, with six-speed manual, seven-speed S Tronic and eight-speed tiptronic transmissions available depending on engine.

The Allroad rides 34mm higher than a standard A4 Avant thanks to 23mm higher suspension and larger alloy wheels. Audi says the Allroad is at home on road and on “light terrain”, so don’t expect spectacular off-road ability, rather better traction in poor conditions and better capability on rough tracks.

To aid in offroad situations there is a specific setting in the Drive Select menu. This adjusts throttle response, steering, transmission control, driver assistance systems and, if specified, adaptive suspension to better suit the surfaces like mud or gravel.

The A4 Allroad shares much of its cabin design and equipment with the Avant, including an 8.3-inch touchscreen or 12.3-inch Virtual Cockpit system, first seen in the TT. New equipment includes a trailer assistance system that can automatically reverse trailers in a straight line, or at a preset angle chosen by the driver using the MMI controller.
