Audi prices A4 allroad from $44,950

When the 2017 Audi A4 allroad reaches dealership lots this fall, it will start at $44,950, including a $950 shipping charge.

The A4 allroad, which was unveiled at the 2016 Detroit auto show, is one of 20 vehicles Audi AG CEO Rupert Stadler said the brand plans to launch globally in 2016. In addition to the base premium trim, the A4 allroad will be available in Premium Plus trim, starting at $47,950 and Prestige trim, starting at $52,350. Prices include shipping.

The A4 allroad is powered by a 2.0-liter engine that produces 252 hp and 273 pounds-feet of torque. Audi’s seven-speed S tronic dual-clutch automatic transmission is the only transmission offered.

The A4 allroad also features a redesigned five-link suspension with standard active dampers.

Nearly an inch and a half has been added to the A4 allroad’s ground clearance compared with the A4 sedan.

A panoramic sunroof and three-zone automatic climate control are standard.

Standard safety equipment includes Audi’s basic pre sense technology package, which automatically prepares the vehicle in anticipation of an impact by “beginning to close the side windows and panoramic sunroof, pre-tensioning the front seat belts and preparing the brake system for a quicker response during an unexpected or emergency maneuver.”

Audi pre sense city technology is also standard. It can detect cornering and stationary vehicles, as well as pedestrians, at speeds of up to 52 mph and can initiate full braking when a potential collision is detected, Audi says.
