Automakers are going north at the moment. That’s because they are seeking cold and snowy places to check out the durability and capability of their future models. One of many testing prototypes we’ve spotted is Audi’s updated A4 Allroad. The impressive wagon will receive a major facelift before it arrives late this year as the 2020 Audi A4 Allroad.
The refreshed A4 Allroad definitely gets a slightly updated grille, which seems to be positioned a bit lower than before. The prototype also shows the restyled fascia with redesigned driving lamps at corners. The camouflage most probably hides more angular air intakes. In addition, the wagon will keep the same wheels, yet they will be coupled with new fenders. In the back, the testing model shows new taillights and rectangular exhaust tips. These set of lights at the roof are for testing purposes only of course, although we won’t mind to see them when the production version arrives.
Irrespective of the fact that we are talking about the updated model, the wagon will get a number of new details inside. Audi will not skip the opportunity to integrate the new infotainment screen in the center stack. They’ve done that already with the A6 and A7, so why would the automaker skip the A4 Allroad? In addition, the car will lose some buttons without any doubt. Instead of them, the automaker will add more touchscreen surfaces. The 2020 Audi A4 Allroad will come fitted with more advanced electronic driver aids, so you can expect some new semi-autonomous functions.
The refreshed wagon will keep its suspension untouched. It will be the same with ground clearance and powertrain options. More precisely, the off-roader will continue to offer one petrol and three diesels. Potential buyers will be able to choose between a 2.0-liter four-cylinder TFSI engine with around 250 hp, a 180 hp 2.0-liter diesel, and a 3.0-liter oil-burner that’s available with 215 hp and 268 hp. All-wheel-drive is standard of course, while most of the options come coupled with a seven-speed automatic gearbox. More precisely, just the topping diesel gets an eight-speed ‘box.
