Audi’s rugged allroad wagon is back in America with some major changes, following a hiatus of the previous A6-based models. The new allroad is based on the latest A4. but shares a family appearance with the A6 allroad that will not be coming across the pond in its latest generation.

The realignment of the allroad brand also includes dropping the A4/A6 badges from the official lower-case names. It is a tedious distinction but one also shared by the deliberately-lower-case quattro GMBH tuning division of the luxury automaker. The latest allroad replaces the standard A4 Avant in U.S. price lists.

Naming tweaks aside, the new model is quite handsome and packs a torque-rich turbo four-pot engine in place of the previous model’s 2.7-liter twin-turbo V-6 option. The latest allroad also loses a few features from the original model, namely the adjustable-height suspension that really increased the older model’s versatility but easily adds $5,000 to the build cost.

When lowered, the old allroad had a more aggressive appearance than even the RS6 Avant due to its huge fender flares and flashy aluminum graphics front and rear. The only fly in the ointment was the two-tone bodywork that used unpainted grey plastic for the fenders and sills.

The new Audi allroad goes a long way toward refining the style of the allroad. It offers a large, luxurious interior and some of the most sought-after tech solutions of any car on the market.

The allroad was always a wagon for people who didn’t like following the normal SUV route. This continues with the latest model as it competes for consumer attention with Audi Q5 small SUV. Other thorns in its side include the GLK350 Mercedes-Benz and the BMW X3 .

What the allroad delivers is a far more car-like experience paired with light off-road capability. Is this butch wagon enough to lure drivers away from boxy small SUVs?

Exterior

The exterior of the allroad is pretty gorgeous from all angles. While seeming like little more than a badge-and-stickers job in theory, there are numerous exterior tweaks that effectively position the allroad as the range-topping A4 variant and just below the American-market S4 sedan.

There are numerous changes to the A4 Avant in conversion to allroad specification, particularly on the front. The allroad replaces the black crosshatch grille pattern for a more distinguished design, featuring thin, tightly-packed chrome vertical slats with the same chrome-trimmed shield grille.

The front and rear scuff plates are anodized aluminum and the grey-plastic fender flares start in the lower front bumper. These pieces are far more aggressive than the painted surfaces on the A4 Avant and bulge out below the fog lamps in a striking way. The grey plastic sills also flare out to protect the paintwork from rocks or other road debris scars.

One interesting feature for the new allroad is an available fully painted body, fenders and sill package when the car is ordered in glacier white, phantom black or ice silver. Despite sitting very high off the ground, the wide tracks and painted trim creates a look that is arguably tougher than even the famed Audi RS models.

The allroad reinforces its practical-but-stylish credentials with matching polished aluminum roof bars that are taller than typical Avant spec but still well-integrated into the shape and coming as standard with no noisy crossbars.

Lastly, Audi’s LED driving lights and taillights are both optional on the allroad. Non Xenon-Plus-equipped cars get basic halogen headlights without the new internal headlight LED graphic that links the allroad to other top A4 -based models like the RS5 .
