[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="36643"] words: Bill, photos: Tuan Pham Word came out yesterday that the 2020 Audi A6 allroad will make its way to U.S. shores and one of its 1st appearances will be at the exclusive Audi Club Nationals 2019 event (there's still time to sign up for the Audi Oktober Concours & Tech Talk on Saturday Oct 19th to see the A6 allroad and meet Tom Kristensen). Naturally with this news, I decided to see what OG allroad was out there for sale. The last...

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="32569"] words: Bill, photos: Audi Canada You can feel the excitement in the air...the anticipation...the potential for disappointment. Audi USA has been teasing us with #WeVantAvants social media blitz for the last several days including this video: [embed]https://youtu.be/WbPkiOYg860[/embed] So what does all this mean? Will we finally see another Avant reaching the States soon? Today is the day...or so the internet tells me (& the end of the...

Audi A6 allroad Spied Testing. Will It Come to USA?

Many were surprised last week in Geneva when the A6 allroad didn't make a showing. Audi instead chose to show an all-electric lineup on its Geneva show stand, leaving the A6 allroad to bow another day. Could that day be New York? Recent tweets from Audi USA have us wondering. What you see here are some of the latest spy photos of an A6 allroad test mule. This particular car was caught cold weather testing in Sweden. While it wears cladding, you can clearly see the allroad cues on this obvious...

Audi USA Summons Avants via Twitter. Oh Boy!

Just in case you don't watch Twitter, you'll be forgiven for having missed this tweet. Even still, Audi USA has made a most interesting post about sixteen hours ago. It's about Avants. Eyebrows raised yet? Here's the tweet. — Audi (@Audi) March 8, 2019 Now, we're not experts on summoning circles, but we've been around the block a few times regarding Audi and Avants. No joke. We've circled their headquarters in our allroad seeking out Euro spec long roofs they might be hiding on numerou...

Motor1.com: New Audi A4 allroad Spied For The First Time

source: Motor1.com The beefy A4 will either be a 2020 or 2021 model. We know Audi has a major facelift coming for the A4. We caught our first glimpse of the camouflaged sedan and wagon last month, and now spy photographers captured the elusive allroad model testing in the snowy white north. At a quick glance this could almost be mistaken for the A4 Avant we saw previously – the camouflage pattern matches, as well as the wheels and even the location for the photos. There are some ke...

Motor1.com: New Audi A1 allroad Spied Getting Snowy With It

source: Motor1.com A little bit of ground clearance and some tweaked body panels set it apart from the standard A1 hatchback. The last time we saw the forthcoming Audi A1 Allroad it was in a decidedly warmer climate, turning laps at the Nürburgring. Testing has obviously moved north – way north – for cold-weather evaluation and low-traction performance on snowy roads. No doubt Audi is putting the Allroad’s Quattro all-wheel-drive system through its paces... Read the ...

Cousin Rivalry: Audi allroad vs Volkswagen Alltrack

words: Bill Cho, video: The Fast Lane Car A couple of weeks ago, The Fast Lane Car dragged the allroad against a Porsche Boxster. This time, they have a proper challenger- the Volkswagen Alltrack. They not only drag the two, they take them out on the trail. I'm all for wagon vs wagon battles because that means more new longroofs are being made and that's a good thing. In this battle amongst cousins, who will win? The wagon loving public will win, that's who.   [embed]https:...

Drag Race: Porsche Boxster vs…B9 allroad?

words: Bill Cho, video: The Fast Lane Car I've seen some odd drag races like the SQ7 vs Ford Focus RS but this one might take the cake. The Fast Lane Car drags a 2018 allroad against a 2006 Porsche Boxster. Obviously it's not a serious race and the guys are just having some fun. The Porsche has a 236hp 199b-ft flat six with RWD and a 5 speed manual transmission. The allroad is a 252hp 273 lb-ft 2.0 liter turbo with quattro and a 7 speed S tronic transmission but it weighs 3,825 lbs...al...

Defining OEM plus with this Incredible Audi A4 allroad

  words: George Achorn, photos: Nicholas Caron I’m just going to say it. OEMplus is an overused term. Originally coined to describe automotive modifications primarily using OEM parts to create something the factory could or should have built, it tends to be more loosely used as any modified car that’s cleanly built. Were it applied more strictly, few modified cars would pass the test… though we suspect this A4 allroad (B9) built by Jaron Brass of the ACNA Golden Gate Chapter...
