The Audi A4 allroad has been caught testing in the US. When will it hit US roads?
So how exactly do we know this A4 Allroad is particular to the North American market, and not simply the same version currently sold in Europe?
Luckily for us, one of our intrepid snappers got a photo of the cabin and a speedometer in miles per hour. Other hints include amber side-marker lights (a U.S. legal requirement) and a U.S.-size license plate holder on the front grill which is almost, but not entirely, hidden behind this car’s European plate. Considering this car’s lack of camouflage, and the fact that the A4 Allroad is already on sale in other markets, we expect to see the car during next month’s Detroit Auto Show.
The most likely powertrain combination will be the 211-bhp 2.0-liter 4-cylinder, mated exclusively to Audi’s 7-speed dual-clutch S tronic automated manual gearbox. Quattro all-wheel drive will be standard and the A4’s electronic stability program (ESP) will gain an extra “off-road” mode.
