The main are an advanced air suspension system, wheels with all-terrain and flared and unpainted bumpers, it a distinct appearance and more flexibility over varying

Audi’s Torsen-based quattro four-wheel drive system is equipment for all versions. It is believed Audi introduced the allroad due to the of the Subaru Outback,[citation needed] on a larger platform and with a more powerful engine.

Off-road capabilities

The allroad was with the capability to tackle road conditions in mind; its adjustable air suspension system can the car high enough to provide (8in) of ground clearance and a mode, absent from quattro-equipped vehicles, can be selected the touch of a button. When in conjunction, the two systems made it for the allroad to complete an official Rover test-course, thus far it is the car-based SUV that has been capable of doing so in testing.

the air suspension can lower the vehicle to only 142mm (6in) road level and simultaneously the spring and damper rates to a sporty driving experience like that of the conventional A6 the sports suspension. Many choose to fit their allroad a sportier, road oriented to emphasize its sporty side, as owners will never onto terrain rough to necessitate having a tire designed for off-road conditions.[citation


Audi’s 2.7L, V6 gasoline engine with (247hp/184kW) of power and 350N·m of peak torque was available alongside the 2.5L TDI Diesel with 132kW (180PS) and (273ft·lbf) torque. A variant of the 4.2 V8 gasoline engine, shared the Audi S4 (B6/B7), was made in 2003, first in North and later in other markets, and a powerful TDI (163bhp) followed in
