The Audi A4 Allroad quattro wagon is now on sale in Australia, giving adventurous drivers a versatile low-riding alternative to the ubiquitous SUV and a more affordable version of Audi’s own larger A6 Allroad.

Audi says it will bring just 150 A4 Allroad wagons to Australia in what it labels a limited edition run, although admits more may be ordered next year if the initial allocation sells out quickly.

Available in just one trim level, the Audi A4 Allroad is priced from $69,900 before on-road costs – making it $9000 more than the 2.0-litre diesel-powered front-wheel drive A4 Avant and $7700 more than the equivalent Audi Q5 SUV, and a significant $48,000 less than the all-new third-generation Audi A6 Allroad.

The Audi A4 Allroad is powered by a 2.0-litre TDI diesel engine producing 130kW of power (4200rpm) and 380Nm of torque (1750-2500rpm). A seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission sends power to all four wheels via Audi’s quattro system, shifting the 1705kg wagon from 0-100km/h in 8.1 seconds, while using just 6.0 litres of fuel per 100km.

Differentiating the A4 Allroad from the standard mid-sized A4 Avant is a chrome-slatted grille, grey plastic wheel arch flares, front and rear stainless steel underbody protection, silver roof rails and seven-spoke 17-inch alloy wheels.

Other standard exterior features include front and rear fog lights, xenon plus headlights with LED daytime running lights and a smart key with keyless entry and start.

With a ground clearance of 180mm, the Allroad sits 37mm higher than the A4 Avant, giving it extra flexibility for journeys off the beaten track.

The standard wagon’s 490-litre boot capacity carries over to the Allroad, and the rear load space expands to 1430 litres with the back seats folded flat.

The cabin features three-zone climate control, a sports steering wheel with paddle shifters, cruise control, front and rear parking sensors and a rear-view camera, electric front seats with leather upholstery, and floor mats.

The infotainment system boasts a 10-speaker sound system, seven-inch display screen, hard drive navigation, 20GB music storage, two SD card readers, voice control and Bluetooth phone connectivity with audio streaming.
