The roads should not decide how you drive. The quattro® permanent all-wheel-drive transfers the power to the front axle or the rear axle based on actual needs. The self-locking centre differential with the single-wheel torque control function enables the car to turn more dynamically and accurately. The powerful engine and the wide wheelbase make the off-road driving steady. The quattro® permanent all-wheel-drive, Electromechanical Power Steering (EPS) and Electronic Stabilisation Programme (ESP) further improve the off-road abilities. The off-road detection system can identify the road features, and adjust the in-vehicle system correspondingly. With a high ground clearance, A4 allroad quattro can cope with all roads easily. You can enjoy the journey on any dangerous roads. All the intelligent technologies aim to make you drive exactly how you feel.
Driving an extraordinary life needs a powerful partner
S tronic® 7-speed dual-clutch transmission
The 7-speed dual-clutch transmission S tronic® enables rapid gear shifting with hardly any perceptible break in propulsive power and is efficient at the same time. With the S tronic® technology, the gear change only lasts a few hundredths of a second and is completed smoothly and swiftly. No matter automatic gear change or manual gear change through the optional shift paddles, the feeling is accurate and smooth. S tronic® not only brings you dynamic driving experience, its high efficiency also reduces the fuel consumption and emission of CO2, ensuring both power and environment protection.
Audi Drive Select
There are up to five driving modes available in the A4 allroad quattro: efficiency, comfort, dynamic, auto and, in conjunction with one of the optional MMI navigation systems, individual mode. The comfort mode is especially suitable for providing the most relaxed driving experience possible on long journeys. The auto mode offers a generally comfortable yet sporty driving experience. For particularly sporty driving, for example on winding roads, there is the dynamic mode. The efficiency mode, however, improves consumption values.
Audi drive select interacts with the engine, the transmission and the steering. If the car has the suspension with a shock absorber or the dynamic steering option, the drive select also affects the above configuration. The engine and gears react more simultaneously or in a more balanced manner to movements of the accelerator, depending on the mode chosen. Moreover, the engine speeds at which gear changes take place are varied. The steering can also be adapted to the driving situation, from sporty and firm to comfortable. If it includes the dynamic steering, you can also choose in the dynamic – direct injection state and the comfortable – non-direct injection state.
quattro® permanent all-wheel-drive
A4 allroad quattro does not fear any dangerous road conditions. It enables the car to turn more dynamically and accurately. The quattro® permanent all-wheel-drive, EPS and ESP further improve the off-road abilities. The off-road detection system can identify the road features, and adjust the in-vehicle system correspondingly. With a high ground clearance, A4 allroad quattro can cope with all roads easily. You can enjoy the journey on any dangerous roads.
If a vehicle has four wheels, why only use two? If the wheels on one axle of the vehicle lose grip on the road and threaten the car to spin, then the power is transferred to the other axle – selectively distributed through the self-locking centre differential. The basic distribution is 40:60 – 40 % of the power comes from the front axle, 60 % from the rear. The benefit is better traction during acceleration and improved safety due to exceptional grip. Combining torque vector, the self-locking centre differential can distribute up to 70% and 85% of propulsion power to the front and rear wheels respectively. It ensures flexibility and brings dynamic, precise and controllable driving experience while providing the maximum traction. Disregarding the technological aspect of the car, what really makes quattro® unique is the driving experience. “Even driving at high speed, the car seems to be glued to the road,” some customers say. We put it like this: quattro® gives you the feeling for the road and thus more safety.
A4 allroad quattro adopts the EPS. You can master the steering accurately even at high speed, and the car will run accurately as if on the rail and bring you a comfortable driving experience. Another feature of EPS is the compact design and low energy consumption. It reduces fuel consumption up to 0.2 liter/100 km, which reduces CO2 emission by 5g/km. A green heart is hided in the elegant body of A4 allroad quattro.
The driver and the passengers need better comfort during a long journey. A4 allroad quattro makes optimal adjustment in all important components to provide better comfort and controllability, including the fine suspension adjustment and shock absorption adjustment. It makes the grip stronger and more accurate while improving the driving comfort. A4 allroad quattro brings a new drive experience with good sportiness and handling on all road conditions.
