Here’s a quick look at the new 2017 Audi Allroad. It’s our German friends longroof answer to the crossover question.
Here for the new model year, Audi has swapped in a revised 2.0-liter turbocharged four cylinder engine, which is now good for 252 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque.
The ride height is slightly raised.
There’s underbody protection.
Throw in more aggressive tires and some mud flaps and we’ve got a $53,000 ($44,000 base price) trail runner.
Yes, we didn’t venture out into the deeper parts of the trail but I know that we could’ve. How? You’re going to have to wait for the video where we torture a Volkswagen Golf Alltrack to find out.
(Spoiler: It handled said “torture” just fine)
[Disclaimer: Audi tossed me the keys to the 2017 Allroad and included a tank of fuel. I had to wash the mud off the car before giving it back, while it was raining outside. I had to go wash a car… while it was raining. I still didn’t get all of the mud, sorry Audi.]
