The A4 range
Expressive. Powerful. Unique.
The new Audi A4 allroad quattro
The new A4 allroad quattro represents exclusive off-road character. It combines extroverted design with maximum functionality, occupying a unique position in its sector. The strongly flared wheel arches and increased ground clearance make the A4 allroad quattro the perfect companion for gentle off-road terrain. The clue’s in the name: the all-wheel drive quattro system means the driving experience is more dynamic, has more traction and feels great on almost every surface.
The Audi A4 allroad quattro makes its presence felt. The horizontal lines and contrasting wheel arches radiate power. Lots of details, such as the radiator grille with vertical chrome slats, the distinctive front and rear bumpers and the jagged headlights, put the finishing touches to the exterior design to give it that exclusive off-road character. There are 15 exterior colours to choose from for the A4 allroad quattro, including five as a full paint finish.
The equipment in the Audi A4 allroad quattro is bound to impress with its pioneering functionality. The sensor-controlled luggage compartment unlocking system makes loading the boot even more comfortable. The standard fully-folding rear seat back creates extra space in the interior. In the normal position there are 505 litres of storage space, with the rear seat back folded down there are 1,510 litres available when loaded up to the roof.
Take a seat and breathe deeply. The A4 allroad quattro’s interior architecture emphasises lightness and width with its consistent horizontal alignment. The low dashboard and integrated air vent band follow the same principle. High-quality materials for seats and trim finishes provide the necessary comfort.
On request, Audi is offering the interior lighting package with ambient lighting in 30 different shades. The extensive range of colours and high-quality materials for seats and trim finishes is characteristic of the A4 series. The focus of the innovative cockpit is the new MMI operating concept with turn/push controls, including MMI touch, the up to 8.3 inch MMI display and the, fully digital 12.3 inch Audi virtual cockpit. The new voice control also processes inputs from everyday language – for example: “I want to phone Peter Miller.” A head-up display rounds off the list of features.
The Audi phone box connects mobile phones to the car antenna and charges them using the Qi inductive power standard. The Bang & Olufsen Sound System with 3D sound and a total of 19 speakers provides an extra special sound experience. The Audi tablet offers flexible rear seat entertainment.
The luggage compartment offers 505 litres of storage space, or 1,510 litres with the rear seat back folded down and when loaded up to the roof. The electric luggage compartment cover and the electric drive for the tailgate come as standard. Sensor control is optional.
Engines and transmissions
Powerful and versatile.
The engines in the Audi A4 allroad quattro.
Higher performance, lower CO2: with the latest generation of TDI engines, you can feel the advances in technology and efficiency.
The TDI engines
The 2.0 TDI with 1,968 cm3 displacement is initially being offered in two performance models. The TDI has 140 kW (190 hp) and 400 Nm at 1750 to 3000 rpm. The TDI engine accelerates the A4 allroad quattro to a top speed of 220 km/h.
The eponymous all-wheel drive quattro comes as standard on board the new A4 allroad quattro. More dynamic, more traction and a great feeling on nearly every surface and with a seven-speed S tronic transmission.For the 2.0 TDI, The main improvements are even more reduced friction, low weight, a highly efficient oil supply and a centrifugal pendulum on the dual-mass flywheel – which enables very low idle speeds. The gear change takes just a few hundredths of a second by shifting between clutches, so that traction is hardly interrupted. The power flows from the output shaft through a spur gear to the front axle differential.Automatic gearboxes boast the latest state of the art and are characterized by a large gear spread. The lower gears are short for a sporty feel, while the higher gears have a long transmission ratio to reduce revs and consumption. The driver can choose between D, S and E modes, and change gears manually at any time with the gear selector lever or with the standard shift paddles on the steering wheel.
Audi’s all-wheel drive quattro represents the pinnacle of dynamism, traction, driving safety and directional stability. Its purely mechanical operation means it responds instantaneously. The advanced torque vectoring, which is active on all surfaces, works in partnership with the quattro drive system.
Compared to the Audi A4 Avant, the 23 mm higher chassis stand height and larger wheels give it 34 mm more ground clearance. That makes the A4 allroad quattro at home both on the road and on gentle off-road terrain.As an alternative to the standard suspension, suspension with damping control is available. Sensors measure the movement of all four wheels as well as longitudinal and transverse acceleration. The damper characteristics then adjust to suit the road conditions and driving situation. This ensures enhanced driving dynamics with even greater comfort and good off-road ability. The basic suspension settings can be adjusted by pressing a button in Audi drive select.The Audi drive select driving dynamics system comes with yet another mode in the A4 allroad quattro. Alongside the familiar settings – comfort, auto, dynamic, efficiency and individual (only in conjunction with navigation system) – an offroad mode is also available for driving off the beaten track. It adjusts the engine and transmission control, the steering, the optional adaptive chassis and all relevant driver assistance systems for optimum performance in gentle off-road terrain.
The front axle is an advanced five-link axle. It offers optimal comfort at the same time as a high level of agility. Compared to its predecessor, the developers have reduced its weight by five kilograms.
Audi is also using a compact new design for the electromechanical power steering, saving 3.5 kg compared to its predecessor. It gives the driver more direct feedback from the road conditions and provides improved steering precision. Dynamic steering with a variable steering ratio is also optionally available.
At the rear, a five-link axle replaces the trapezoidal-link axle of the previous model. By using intelligent materials, Audi has reduced the weight of the axle components by another seven kilograms.
Fascinating infotainment and intelligent assistance systems are a clear sign of innovative mobility in the Audi A4 allroad quattro: the Audi virtual cockpit and optional Bang & Olufsen sound system with 3D sound are both examples of the high-end technology on offer. The assistance system’s highlights include adaptive cruise control with Stop & Go function and traffic jam assist. It controls start-up and braking and supports steering at speeds of up to 65 km/h.
Driver assistance and safety systems
All the A4 series’ driver assistance and safety systems are also available for the A4 allroad quattro. Highlights include the adaptive cruise control with Stop & Go function and traffic jam assist. It controls start-up and braking and supports steering at speeds of up to 65 km/h. The A4 allroad quattro can tow up to 2,100 kilograms on an eight percent gradient. Additional new features include predictive efficiency assist, parking assist, rear cross-traffic assist, exit warning, collision avoidance assist, turn assist and Audi pre-sense systems.
Superior driving experience
Go your own way: with the all-wheel drive quattro, even the standard equipment is superior. More dynamic, more traction and a great feeling on nearly every surface. In addition, you can always achieve your desired handling characteristics by customizing with Audi drive select: alongside the familiar comfort, auto, dynamic, individual and efficiency modes, an offroad mode is also available for driving off the beaten track.
