Thirty-four millimetersÂ of ground clearance. That’s what separates a standard A4 Avant wagon (which we can’t get here in the States) with the new Audi A4 Allroad quattro. That, and a bunch of plastic lower-body cladding.
Apparently, American consumers can’t handle the low step-in of the standard Avant.
The flared wheel arches are what we’ve come to expect from any Allroad variant, and look quite handsome. Audi has changed up the corporate grille for the Allroad, as well, with chrome vertical slats rather than the horizontal strakes found on the sedan.
At least for the European market, a wide range of gasoline and TDI engines are offered. No word on what we will get Stateside, though the 2-liter gas turboÂ andÂ 272 horsepower,Â 3-liter V-6 are fair bets.
