The new model adopts all the traditional Allroad styling cues, including beefed-up bumpers with prominent protection plates both front and rear, vertical chrome slats within the grille, additional cladding within the wheel arches, beefed-up sills underneath the doors and roof bars fitted as standard.
Among the engines to be made available from the outset of UK sales are 161bhp and 187bhp versions of Audi’s widely used 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel engine, with both developing peak torque of 295lb ft.
In combination with an optional seven-speed S tronic dual-clutch automatic gearbox, the lower-powered engine has claimed combined fuel consumption of 57.6mpg and average CO2 emissions of 128g/km, while the higher-powered unit comes with a 0-62mph time of 7.8sec and a 137mph top speed.
Shortly after the A4 Allroad quattro’s introduction, they will be joined by a third version of the engine developing 148bhp and 234lb ft.
Also available will be Audi’s turbocharged 3.0-litre V6 diesel with either 215bhp and 295lb ft or 268bhp and 443lb ft, the latter of which is claimed to spirit the new A4 Allroad quattro from 0-62mph in just 5.5sec on the way to a limited 155mph top speed while providing combined consumption of 53.3mpg and CO2 emissions of 139g/km.
