2017 Audi A4 Allroad Coming This Fall In USA, Priced From $44,950

The new 2017 Audi A4 Allroad will reach US shores this fall with a single powertrain option.

Unlike their EU spec models, Audi is offering the new A4 Allroad only with a turbocharged 252hp 2.0-litre TFSI engine, mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox in the US.

Since Audi will not bring the regular A4 Avant stateside, the new Allroad will be the only wagon of choice. Its standard Quattro all-wheel drive system is new and allows for proactive control of its torque distribution, improving not only grip but fuel efficiency as well.

Ground clearance is 34mm (1.3in) higher than that of the regular A4 saloon, while there is also a new off-road driving mode added to the ‘Audi Drive Select’ system (comfort, auto, dynamic, individual, and offroad).

Being an Allroad also means that the body now wears some extra cladding, along with aluminum roof rails and underbody guard to show off the car’s “off-road character”. A set of 18in alloy wheels is offered as standard.

The redesigned five-link suspension comes with adaptive dampers as standard in order for the new A4 Allroad to offer the best possible comfort both on and off road. Other than that, we’re pretty much looking at a normal A4, meaning all the bells and whistles we know from the regular model like the Audi Virtual Cockpit, the cutting-edge connected infotainment system and a long list of driver assistance systems, are all there.

Prices start at $44,950 for the Premium model with the range-topping Prestige costing $52,350.

    neat and brilliant…but I cant stop my self from saying that that side profile is a bit bland …

      It’s an AUDI afterall.

    Looks good. Continues to be an upscale alternative to the Subaru Outback. I wonder if BMW or Mercedes will take a bite out of the raised rugged wagon market.
