quattro all-wheel drive is standard in the new A4 allroad quattro*. Customers can choose from a manual six-speed transmission, seven-speed S tronic or eight-speed tiptronic, depending on the engine.
Audi offers a manual transmission and a new S tronic for the 2.0 TDI. The dual-clutch transmission is standard equipment with the 2.0 TFSI and the 3.0 TDI that produces 160 kW (218 hp). The most important improvements are further reduced friction, low weight, highly efficient oil supply system and dual-mass flywheel with a centrifugal pendulum – enabling very low idle speeds.
Gear changes are executed within a few hundredths of a second and with virtually no interruption in the power flow by changing the clutches. Power flows from the drive shaft to the front-axle differential via a spur gear stage.
This also marks the first time that the eight-speed tiptronic is available in the A4 allroad quattro. It is reserved for the 3.0 TDI with 200 kW (272 hp). The gentle, fast and spontaneously shifting torque-converter automatic with its many gear levels makes it possible to operate the engine at its ideal load point much of the time.
Both automatic transmissions are distinguished by a broad spread of gears. Their lower gears feature short, sporty ratios, while the upper gears are long to reduce revs and fuel consumption. Drivers can choose between the D, S and E modes, and they can change gears manually at any time using either the selector lever or the standard shift paddles on the steering wheel.
