The Audi Allroad is one of the most popular vehicles produced by the German car manufacturer, and it has been available to the public since 1999 in one form or another. Generally, when one of the already established car models of the company displayed the name “allroad Quattro”, it meant that the car is indeed an Audi all road – a car able to go off road and still maintain its usual performance.
For the first time in 1999, the company released under this name a semi-offroad version of its popular A6 model, the Audi A6 Avant (wagon), generally known as an A6 allroad. The wagons had been one of the most successful lines of cars produced and sold by Audi USA for many years (especially years such as 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004), because of their reliability and relatively easy maintenance available for a decent price.
Afterwards, the subsequent generations of A6 cars, released in 2006 and 2012, have all been renamed “Audi A6 allroad quattro”, and since 2009, this spec has been available for the Audi A4 Avant as well. Named an Audi A4 allroad quattro, just like its predecessor, the model has known various sub-models as well.
The B8 was one of the first Audi A4 allroad models to be released in 2009 and it’s still available today, accompanied by various other A6 models such as the C5 (1999-2005), C6 (2006-2011), C7 (2012-present) and so on.
Audi Allroad 2014 – What to expect if you want to buy it
The vehicle world is looking very pleased with the new 2014 Audi allroad: according to reviews, it combines the power of a diesel motor with the durability and practicality of an Audi A4 hatchback which any nostalgic may remember from back in their day. The hatchback was initially one of the A3 Audi models, and it quickly became so popular that the company subsequently released it in the a4 version as well. It was a 3 door model which became iconic for the late 90s as far as popular cars were concerned.
Returning to the Audi Allroad 2014, it’s good to note that its most praised qualities are the neat interior, the sturdy wagon stance of the car, as well as the power it delivers effortlessly. If from 2001 to 2005-2006 the A6 and A3 were the most popular models for the offroad spec, we are pretty confident that the 2014 model will become the number one choice for years to come. It’s family-friendly, it can take a few hardships and it still maintains its aspect of a station wagon.
Therefore, when searching for a good Audi allroad for sale, whether you’re interested in a new one or a slightly used one, do consider the newer models as well, starting with the most recent one from 2014. Another popular alternative wich would basically offer you the same benefits off road and out of urban areas is the new Audi S4 (sports Sedan), or the Audi A8 4.2 TDI (Quattro), which were very popular in 2012 and 2013.
The S4 2015 model is currently all the rave on car forums and the lucky owners have placed their orders in advance for a chance to get their own.
Maintenance and availability of parts for Audi Allroad models
According to most reviews done by both experts and car owners, the range of Audi allroad models is a good choice for everyone looking for a sturdier car which they can take outside urban landscapes occasionally. Not only that the car completes its task without any major problems – as long as you don’t want to take it over the mountains, since the allroad models are still just semi offroad in their specs and capacities – but any review will also point out at how easy it is to find good parts to replace the ones that no longer work when the car needs repairing.
There are countless aftermarket parts stores that can offer your car parts both new and used whenever something in your vehicle needs replacing. Audi is one of the most popular brands with such stores or car shops or a salon, so you can expect to find a large variety of Audi parts for sale with them. All you need to do is enter the shop and say “my Audi a4 wagon needs a boost and some spare parts”, and then just sit back and let the guys there work their magic.
For example, the Audi A4 wagon TDI is one of the go-tos for many car mechanics and engineers. Most Audi parts available as spares are compared to this basic model and all the other versions seem to be modeled around it as well. Also, another thing you should know if you’re considering tuning up your car considerably, is the fact that nowadays you can upgrade the power and capacities of your car at an almost limitless level, keeping only the main shell or exterior of the car you originally owned.
While no one is suggesting anything so drastic, we do however suggest that you take into account the Audi trim levels when you’re preparing for a car purchase. The trim levels, Premium, Premium plus and Prestige, reflect the detail and desirability of the features displayed by the car’s outer line. Usually, all the Audi models are available in at least 2 trim levels, depending on how expensive the car is (the fancy models usually only come in the Premium plus or Prestige trim lines).
The Prestige line usually offers all the perks of the Premium plus line, with optional advanced options available for order. That means that getting your car with a more advanced trim line (ideally, the Prestige one) makes it just perfectly customizable afterwards on the exterior as well, not to mention how much you can upgrade the interior power of the car as well by having a serious talk with one of the employees from a good car shop.
In conclusion, there are wonderful things to be done with an Audi allroad car, and its quality of being the perfect balance between an urban car and a sturdy off-road vehicle makes it ideal for a bit of adventure and versatility.
