About Audi Allroad
As one of the first vehicles to bridge the gap between wagons and SUVs, Audi Allroad was built by the German automobile manufacturer Audi AG, part of the Volkswagen Group between 2000 and 2016 but is put into production again since 2017 as a crossover wagon. Originally introduced to fulfill the Audi lineup, Allroad was commonly seen as A4 Allroad and A6 Allroad. Competing against the Volvo V60 and BMW 328, Allroad is priced above the Q3 and Q5, but below the Q7 crossover. Now, Allroad is in its third generation.
The second-generation Audi Allroad was produced from 2013 to 2016 and was introduced to North American market for the 2013 model year. The differences between the Allroad and the base model are a wider track, higher ground clearance and adjustable air suspension. Built based on the Audi A4 sedan, Allroad came in three trim levels: Premium, Premium Plus and Prestige. As a well-equipped vehicle, Allroad got a long list of standard features including 18-inch wheels, a panoramic sunroof, leather upholstery, automatic climate control, Bluetooth phone connectivity and iPod integration. During this generation, Audi Allroad was powered by a 2.0 L turbocharged I4 rated at 220 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. And this engine sent power to Quattro all-wheel-drive system via an 8-speed automatic transmission. Current Allroad debuted at the 2016 Detroit Auto Show for the 2018 model year. Now, Allroad gets power still from the 2.0 L turbocharged I4 engine, but which could generate 252 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. Power is sent through a 7-speed S Tronic dual-clutch automatic transmission to four wheels and three trim levels are also carried over from previous generation.
