if you are still confused to find a car, do kuati was present and a new look are the Audi A4 Allroad Quattro, which had just been introduced into more affordable than Australia.Allroad A4 A6 Allroad, which has sold over 10 tahun.Audi said an edition A4 Allroad limited and only 150 will be coming to Australia.A4 Allroad is a wagon version of the Audi A4 is fitted with some extra equipment and body reinforcements and finished off with a diesel engine and all-wheel drive.It all tente not cheap. There is one model costs $ 69,990, which represents a premium of $ 7,000 compared to the Audi Q5 SUV.

And while this new Allroad has more ground clearance than Avant, and is equipped with front and rear skid plates, it is better suited to handle gravel roads or dropping the kids off in the grass near the football field rather than for any serious off-road excursions. However, with its fulltime all-wheel drive, we can easily appreciate the security that will give you when dealing with steep mountain roads with tight corners and switchbacks, (and no fences in many places) while the winter snow. With a ground clearance of 180mm, which is less than the Q5 but 37mm 20mm more than the A4 Avant, the A4 Allroad provides enough space above ground for light off-road work like the odd trip or a trip to the snow.

Allroad has a slightly different footprint A4, with a 23mm-19mm front track wider and wider rear track, which no doubt contributed to the positive handling characteristics.A4 Allroad put up with some off-road duty, and no party stainless steel front plate, but no other changes.machineMachines are only available for the A4 Allroad is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo diesel engine, which produces 130kW and 380Nm. It is connected with the transmission of dual-clutch seven-speed automatic and no manual option.

Allroad comes in three trim levels: Premium, Premium Plus and Prestige. All use the same intercooled, direct-injection 2.0-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged. This engine makes 211 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. Gas mileage listed at 20-mpg city and 27 mpg highway-on premium fuel. Audi claims 6.6 seconds from zero to 60, but it did not feel like it on our test drive. And at times on our mountain driving, Allroad felt really sluggish when traveling uphill, even using the paddle shifters on the second and third gear to keep above 3000 rpm where the power starts.

We did not experience the same feeling with the A4 sedan, so we can only guess that nearly 400 pounds of weight added that the Allroad sedan that carries over to blame. We would love to see another 25 horses from the 2.0-liter engine. Because of that, we had no complaints when accelerating on level ground, or more slowly passing traffic. though the rise is higher than normal and the official fuel economy figure is 6.0 liters per 100 km, benefit from stop-start system that automatically kills the engine at idle.

8-speed manumatic transmission is very good. Sport Mode encourages a shift points up higher on the tach dial, and the Tiptronic mode provides the ability to hold each gear, and it is programmed to shift soon and crisp up and down. Smooth and sleek are two words that best describes the unit. Brakes feel strong, with good pedal feel, and there are no signs of fading when used hard on the mountain downhill runs.Allroad has the same independent suspension and electric power steering as a base A4. Responsive steering with just enough feedback. The suspension is tuned more for comfort than sporty. There are a lot of body lean when pushed hard through the twisties, but a lot of grip from the 19-inch tires and all-wheel drive system with stability control gives the driver the confidence to push the car hard.

InteriorThe interior is almost identical to the A4 Avant, Audi Like the others, looks smart and well designed, with alloy-look trim parts and shiny black dashboard elements. Black leather-faced seats (vinyl used for the sides and rear) as the standard black roof liner.There's adequate legroom and headroom for rear seat passengers and two adults can sit comfortably in the back. Technically, the A4 Allroad has five seats, but the middle seat in the second row is the company so absurdlyStandard gear includes keyless entry and start, eight airbags (including rear side airbags), xenon headlights, roof rails, satellite navigation and an electric cooler bag that fits neatly in the boot (connected to the 12v socket).

Audi A4 Allroad run permanent AWD system, not unlike the other A4 Quattros, but the car has electronic intelligent assistance systems that identify slippery surfaces and adjust the braking and electronic stability control intervene accordingly.

Allroad is one of the few vehicles 2013 Audi Connect telematics suite to use. For a monthly fee, Audi Connect customers can utilize the built-in 3G connection that turns into a wireless hotspot Allroad rolling up to 8 devices, and to allow local search Google via the MMI. Also available is a link to the satellite data for real-time traffic and weather info.

along with the CD / DVD controls, layout and design are well thought out and well executed. And in a nod to European sensibilities, there's even an ash tray and lighter. Everything seems to be where you want it, and where it should be. The entire interior is both stylish without looking fussy or overdone.

This includes the $ 1500 17-inch alloy wheels fitted to our test car, $ 2,760 19-inch rims, $ 1650 metallic paint, panoramic sunroof $ 2850, $ 1400 Bang & Olufsen sound system, aluminum trim $ 400, $ 850 wood grain trim Grains, automatic closing tailgate $ 1050 and $ 700 heated front seats.
