ZETLAND, AUSTRALIA – Oct 12, 2012: For the first time ever, Audi is launching the spectacularly versatile A4 allroad quattro in Australia. It’s a vehicle that knows no boundaries thanks to its permanent all-wheel drive and increased ground clearance. This brand new member of the A4 family can handle a variety of roads and trails, offering driving pleasure, even on unpaved surfaces.

Naturally, the Audi A4 allroad quattro features all the innovative technologies expected in the A4 model line, including a powerful and highly-efficient 2.0 TDI engine with 130 kW of power and 380 Nm of torque, S tronic transmission, and of course, advanced quattro drivetrain technology. It is the first time that Audi is offering this torque TDI engine in combination with quattro, in Australia.

With increased ground clearance, wider wheel tracks and a special ESP system that detects the driving surface and varies the stability system accordingly, the versatile A4 allroad quattro can take its occupants off the beaten track with relative ease. The quattro all-wheel-drive system can handle sealed or loose surfaces with aplomb, ensuring the driver can enjoy dynamic performance at all times.

Visually, the A4 allroad quattro appears very different to the rest of the A4 model line. The aluminium-look exterior, including roof rails and sill extensions with stainless steel provide the A4 allroad quattro with a dynamic visual presence to match its capabilities. Underbody protection at the front and rear in stainless steel further adds to the A4 allroad quattro’s robust construction.

Power comes from a torquey 2.0 TDI engine that produces 130kW and 380Nm. Combined with the fast-shifting seven-speed dual-clutch S tronic gearbox, the A4 allroad quattro is a strong performer, reaching 100 km/h from rest in 8.1 seconds. Frugal fuel efficiency is also another strong point, sipping just 6.0 litres per 100km.

In Australia, the Audi A4 allroad quattro model is available as a limited edition of 150 units. In order to maintain exclusivity for owners, the volume has been capped for this versatile and vigorous new package. It’s larger sibling, the Audi A6 allroad quattro, has the strongest loyalty following of all of Audi’s models, such is the practicality and performance of this SUV-like estate. The A4 allroad quattro model is expected to find similar strong support Down under. Each vehicle features a very attractive list of standard features. Highlights include 17-inch alloy wheels, Xenon headlights, MMI Navigation Plus, Audi parking system plus with rear view camera and a tyre pressure monitor.
