After the premiere of the new Audi A4 Sedan and A4 Avant models in 2015, Audi is further expanding the bestseller family in the most important market segment. The Audi A4 allroad quattro, which was presented at the Detroit Motor Show in January 2016, combines high levels of driving comfort with excellent off-road qualities, making it unique in its segment. Thanks to quattro all‑wheel drive and the increased ground clearance, it continues driving where the road stops. The high-torque TFSI and TDI engines of the Audi A4 allroad quattro offer enhanced driving performance along with improved efficiency. The TFSI and the five TDI engines deliver maximum output of between 110 kW (150 hp) and 200 kW (272 hp), which is up to 20 kW (27 hp) more than with the previous model. The quattro permanent all‑wheel drive is standard equipment with the second generation of the A4 allroad quattro.
Two new Audi SUVs are to be launched in 2016: The compact Audi Q2 debuted at the Geneva Motor Show. This completely new model will be produced at the main plant in Ingolstadt. The Q2 is the 13th model series at Audi and will provide a new entry into the world of SUVs. A few months later, the second‑generation Audi Q5 will drive off the assembly lines at the new Audi plant in San José Chiapa, Mexico. Both models feature extremely efficient engines and modern infotainment, a high degree of versatility and the brand’s typical design.
A generation change is also coming up in the second half of the year 2016 for the Audi A5 coupe series – for both the two‑door version and for the five‑door Sportback. These models will reinterpret the successful concept of the first generation with a synthesis of classical coupe proportions and modern lines, exceptional driving dynamics and a high level of everyday practicality. Audi A5 customers will have access to the full range of driver‑assistance systems and connectivity functions, which are currently also available for the Audi Q7, Audi R8 and Audi A4.
