BRAVING THE BUNDUS IN AN A4: With its raised ride height and additional under body protection, Audi claims it A4 allroad is capable on or off-road cross-over estate.

Audi is set to add to its A4 family in South Africa – the A4 Allroad Quattro.

The Allroad was previously launched in SA in the form of the Audi A6 allroad in 2001. The new model will be launched in February 2013.
The model sports allroad-specific styling, quattro all-wheel drive and S tronic transmission.


In terms of design, the new model has steel underbody protection, a single-frame chromed grille and an off-road specific range of tyres. Ground clearance has been increased to 180mm. An aluminium package adds roof rails, window trims and stone covers.

The engine range is comprised of two four-cyclinder units - 2.0TDI or 2.0T FSI, both mated to an S tronic auto. The 2.0 TDI quattro generates 130kW/380Nm, while the 2.0T FSI produces 155kW/350Nm.
Fuel consumption is rated at six litres/100km for the 2.0 TDI and 7.3 the T FSI.  Auto stop/start is standard on both models.

There's 490 litres of boot space which increases to 1430 with the seats folded. Optional equipment includes a load-securing set and a power rear door.

The allroad model receives all the standard kit from its sedan sibling and adds Audi’s off-road detection, which detects the condition of the driving surfaces and adapts the control characteristics of the ESC system.
The Audi A4 allroad is available to order now though pricing will be released on market introduction in February 2013.
