The Audi Allroad, based on the mid-sized A6, is essentially a jacked-up version of the standard wagon with protective plastic side cladding and a quattro all-wheel-drive system. The car is designed for those individuals who want off-road capability but aren’t willing to upsize to full-on SUV. To expand its product portfolio, Audi is now considering adding a smaller A4 Allroad to the fold.

New features the A4 version could adopt if it enters production include pneumatic air suspension, a dual-clutch transmission and a new 2.0L turbodiesel engine. Power levels would range from 143hp and 320Nm of torque to 170hp and 350Nm of torque. A range topper could also be launched with 204hp and 400Nm of torque available.

The only official word on the A4 Allroad’s existence, according to AutoBild, is that it’s still under consideration. However, given the success of the A6 Allroad an A4 version is very likely.
