2019 Audi A4 Allroad Quattro – Superb Ride Comfort And Good Offroad Qualities. 2019 Audi A4 Allroad Quattro – Drive, Interior And Exterior. Subscribe.
Thanks to its quattro all-wheel drive and ground clearance raised by 35 millimeters (1.4 in) the Audi A4 allroad quattro combines superb ride comfort and good offroad qualities. With the optional allroad-specific suspension with damper control, comfort and dynamism can be enhanced further. It differs from the A4 Avant through details such as the underbody protection or the wheel arch trims and also by its 12-millimeter (0.5 in) larger wheels and its wider track – six millimeters (0.2 in) wider at the front and eleven millimeters wider (0.4 in) at the rear.
Automatic transmissions come standard with the Audi A4 allroad qattro a suspension with damper control provides an alternative to the standard suspension. As on the A4 Avant, the luggage compartment has a capacity of 495 liters (17.5 cu ft) – this increases to 1,495 liters (52.8 cu ft) with the rear seats folded down and cargo loaded to the roof. The rear hatch and the luggage compartment cover are electrically operated as standard. With the additional offroad mode on the Audi drive select dynamic handling system, the driver can choose from six profiles in the A4 allroad quattro.
A compact, air-cooled lithium-ion battery with a capacity of 0.5 kWh, which is located under the luggage compartment floor, acts as an energy management center. The mild-hybrid system on the S models has the potential to reduce customer fuel consumption by up to 0.4 liters per 100 kilometers.
An eight-speed tiptronic and the quattro permanent all-wheel drive make up the drivetrain. If desired, an optional sport differential is available to actively distribute power between the rear wheels. In this way, more power can be directed specifically to the wheel on the outside of the bend when cornering at speed, which combats the tendency to understeer early on. The S sport suspension is standard. With its S-specific setup it provides a sporty driving sensation. This can be enhanced even further with the optional S sport suspension with damper control. Inside and out, a host of design details point to the unique position of the S models – from the exhaust tailpipes to the S mode in the display of the optional Audi virtual cockpit.
The Audi A4 models and the S4 models with a TDI engine and sporty new look can be ordered in Europe from May 2019. The A4 allroad quattro will be available in the early summer and both models will be in the dealerships from fall 2019. In Germany, the base price for the A4 Sedan 35 TFSI with 110 kW (150 hp) and S tronic is 35,900 euros. Customers can order the S4 Sedan TDI starting at 62,600 euros. It comes standard with popular options from the Audi A4 Sedan valued at approximately 6,400 euros when compared with the A4 Sedan 45 TDI quattro tiptronic with 170 kW (231 hp). These include LED headlights with dynamic rear indicators, S sport suspension with tautly tuned suspension and damping, 18-inch wheels, power-adjustable front sport seats with Alcantara leather and embossed S logo, and sportily contoured bumpers. Customers can also order the Audi A4 edition one, a special edition starting at 53,300 euros.
Audi offers the S4 and the S4 Avant with the 3.0 TFSI in markets outside Europe. The turbocharged gasoline direct injection engine has an output of 260 kW (354 PS) and produces a hefty torque of 500 Nm (368.8 lb-ft) from 1,370 to 4,500 rpm. The V6 accelerates the S4 Sedan TFSI from zero to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 4.7 seconds on the way to an electronically governed top speed of 250 km/h (155.3 mph). The standard sprint takes two tenths of a second longer in the S4 Avant TFSI.
The sportily balanced suspension ideally harmonizes with the character of the Audi A4. Customers can choose between the standard setup and the sport suspension. There are also two adaptive suspensions. One option is the comfort suspension with damper control, which reduces the ride height by 10 millimeters (0.4 in) and offers superb ride comfort. The other is the sport suspension, either with or without damper control, which is lowered by 23 millimeters (0.9 in). With its even more dynamic basic setup, it underscores the sporty character while maintaining comfort. Both controlled suspensions are integrated into the Audi drive select dynamic handling system. The same applies to the steering, with dynamic steering, the automatic transmission and the throttle valve available for customers as an option. Audi drive select allows the driver to determine which of up to five profiles these systems use.
