Audi Allroad Returns to US After 7 Years

Audi Allroad Returns to US After 7 Years

For the 2013 model year, Audi will re-introduce the allroad which has been absent from the U.S. market since 2005.

Built on the A4 platform, the utilitarian car will be powered by a 2.0T inline four capable of 211 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque through an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Built to handle gravel roads, snow and other conditions that give low-sitting cars trouble, the allroad gets an extra 1.5 inches of ground clearance and has a one-inch wider track. Stainless steel front and rear skid plates, a unique grille, set of bumpers, side sills, roof rails and rear diffuser further set the car apart.

Inside, the car also offers a navigation system with integrated Google maps, voice recognition, real time fuel prices and WiFi for up to eight devices.

When the Audi allroad goes on sale, it will start at $40,695 including an $895 delivery fee, though the most expensive model carries an MSRP of  $49,695.
