Audi looks well positioned to continue that momentum with a loaded schedule of key product launches planned for this year, including the A4 sedan, Q7 midsize crossover, A5 coupe and R8 supercar.
Joining that lineup will be the A4 allroad quattro later this year, which Audi of America CEO Scott Keogh says gets 1.4 inches of additional ground clearance compared to the A4 Avant wagon. It also sports more rugged body cladding and Quattro all-wheel-drive. Under the Allroad’s hood is a 252-hp, 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine.
“It combines, really, two great advancements: off-road qualities of an SUV and the driving comfort of the Audi A4,” Keogh said.
