Audi A4 allroad quattro

German carmaker Audi is launching the new A4 allroad quattro, a model that comes with permanent all-wheel drive and increased ground clearance. It features all the innovative technologies like for example a range of powerful and highly energy-efficient engines, Audi Drive Select, the high-tech 5 Tronic transmission and innovative communication and assistance systems. In case you are interested in purchasing it, know that will be available at the beginning of the summer for a starting price of EUR37.100. Viewed from the side, the vehicle amazes with flared wheel arches, angular sills and larger wheels 17-inch wheels in 7-arm design as standard. On the 2.0-liter TDI, the two exhaust tailpipes appear side by side, on the 2.0-liter TFSI and 3.0-liter TDI, they terminate to the left and to the right. The carmaker has created a vehicle body consisting first of high-strength and ultra-strong steel panels, which reduce the weight of the car while enhancing its rigidity, vibration comfort and impact safety. Beside the two front airbags, there are side airbags in the front and optionally, in the rear as well. There is also a head-protection airbag system that stands at the ready. The integral head-restraint system in the front diminishes the risk of whiplash in the event of a rear-end collision. The luggage compartment has a 490 liters capacity and it can be increased to 1.430 liters by folding down the split rear-bench backrest, which optionally features a load-through hatch with removable ski bag. The new Audi A4 allroad quattro has a reversible load-liner, the underside of which has been designed as a dirt-resistant tray. Optional equipment includes a reversible mat, a 12-volt outlet, a strap retainer and a lot more. The Audi Drive Select can be paired with Audi dynamic steering. It consists of a super-imposed gear system, and varies the steering ratio as well as steering assistance in a continuously variable manner. Optional equipment also includes a multitude of attractive features.
