Peter Anderson road tests and reviews the new Audi A4 Allroad Quattro, with specs, fuel consumption and verdict at its Australian launch.

It’s been a busy few months for Audi since the launch of its brilliant new B9 A4. The rave reviews have been rolling in and continued with the release of the Avant wagon variants.

Despite a bulging SUV range - soon to grow even further with the new Q2 and the entirely probable Q8 - Audi still finds enough customers for traditional wagons.

Slightly less traditional wagons like the jacked-up Allroads have also earned their place, with the mid-size A4 Allroad making a return for its second generation this week.
