2013 Audi A4 Allroad Replaces the Old A4 Avant
Audi A4 is one of the best selling cars coming from the house of the German car maker Audi AG. The brand just never sits back and relax and circulates the newer things further. So, for this year, they have got the newer 2013 Audi A4 Allroad which will be replacing the regular A4 wagon or the A4 Avant. This is one of the most sought after car when it comes to allroads. The A4 has seen great success all over the world. Speaking about its business figures, one can say that the American market has not caught up with Audi A4 as this is an allroad whereas most Americans prefer SUVs from this German car maker. Audi stopped making A4s for America but now it’s launching this glory back expecting some change in the mindset of the buyers for good for the German car maker.
It can be assumed that the 2013 Audi A4 Allroad has a hell of a power for a vehicle of this segment. It competes with others with quite an elan when it comes to performance. The new A4 Allroad is much faster than the older versions, thanks to the state of the art technology and some changes that the German car maker has incorporated in the new version of the car. The car is powered by a smaller 2.0 liter four-cylinder engine that can generate 211 hp of maximum power and 258 pound feet of torque. The engine is one of the most smoothest TFSI engines. The 258 pound feet of torque comes at just 1500 rpm and stays until 4200 rpm. The car comes with the all wheel drive as a standard. The power is transmitted through an eight speed auto transmission technology with manual shift control technique. Expect the car to go from 0 to 60mph in around 6.6 seconds. The car is not only fast rather it is much more fuel efficient as well. The steering now uses electric power assist enhancing the fuel economy.
The exterior of the new A4 Allroad are also on the better side. The car it is replacing had a lower driving level. On the other side, Audi A4 comes with a higher ride height which is exactly 1.4 inches. The overall height is increased by 2.5 inches. Also the new Audi A4 is 0.7 inch longer and 0.5 inch wider than the older version. The ride quality of 2013 A4 Allroad is becoming better with the higher ride level but the cornering of the car would be the area that will be negatively impacted. The car also comes with the 19 inches wheels although, the standard equipment comes with 18 inches wheel base. The lower bumpers have a matte like feel which increases the luxury quotient towards the positive side.
Moving towards the interiors, Audi A4 manages to keep the reputation of Audi as it is. It not only manages to impress the onlookers but is also very much comfortable and ergonomically designed. The seats use great and elegant material which gives it a luxurious feel as well as it is very comfortable. The biggest boost is the usage of fine quality material all over the inside which tends to attract the buyers quite a lot. It does have all the standard Audi amenities which are needless to mention in this review.
The target launch of the 2013 Audi A4 is around the summer of 2012. That is when the actual price of the car would be announced and it would be rather under than $40,000 which is much lower than the A6 Allroad. People will now have an option to buy a feasiible Allroad as previously the allroad option was only available as the A6.
