New Audi A4 allroad quattro 2012 Teaser [HD] (Option Auto News)
New Audi A4 allroad quattro 2012
Audi will initially offer three different engines for the A4 allroad quattro: a gasoline unit and two diesel engines. All three are turbocharged with direct fuel-injection as per the TFSI or TDI principle. They are impressive for their excellent performance, impressive pulling power, smooth running, and high fuel efficiency.
The 2.0 TFSI -- voted "Engine of the Year" on four consecutive occasions by an international panel of experts -- incorporates three high-end technologies in this latest stage of its evolution: FSI direct gasoline injection, turbocharging, and the Audi valvelift system, which Boosts pulling power by variably controlling the Exhaust valves' lift. Direct fuel injection and turbocharging have been a successful combination at Audi for years, as the R8 racing car has demonstrated with its triumphs at the Le Mans 24 Hours and many other events.
High compression ratio: Ensuring excellent efficiency
In the high-volume engine as well, this technological twosome is a perfect solution. Injected at a pressure of 150 bar in the 2.0 TFSI and then swirled by flaps, the gasoline vaporizes and thus removes heat from the combustion chambers -- this in turn solves the conventional turbocharging problem of engine knock. This facilitates a compression ratio of 9.6:1 for excellent efficiency.
The 2.0 TFSI, which delivers power from a displacement of 1,984 cm3, provides additional high-tech features. All components have been designed to minimize friction and the oil pump works very efficiently. The crankcase weighs just over 30 kilograms (66 pounds). Two balance shafts contribute to excellent refinement, and the intake camshaft can be adjusted by 60 degrees.
The turbocharger and its Intercooler have been optimized for sporty responsiveness and a high efficiency ratio. Between 1,500 and 4,200 rpm, the four-cylinder engine delivers 350 Nm (258.15 lb-ft) of torque to the crankshaft. Peak output is 155 kW (211 hp). In conjunction with the S tronic dual-clutch transmission, the 2.0 TFSI propels the Audi A4 allroad quattro to 100 km/h (62.14 mph) in just 6.9 seconds, and to a top speed of 230 km/h (142.92 mph). On average, it consumes a mere 8.1 liters of fuel per 100 km (29.04 U.S. mpg).

New AUDI A4 Avant 2012 Driving Scene [HD] (Option Auto News)
The Audi A4 -- in sedan and Avant form -- is a winner in the mid-size
category. Its available engines offer strong performance coupled with high
efficiency. They are every bit an expression of the brand's technical
expertise as are the sporty handling and the numerous convenience and
infotainment features taken directly from the full-size category.
The A4 is a customer favorite. This past spring, the five millionth model
built since the A4 designation for the model series was introduced in 1994
rolled off the assembly line at Audi's Ingolstadt plant. The readers of
auto, motor und sport named the A4/A5 model series best in its category in
the voting for the "Best Cars of 2011."
Body and interior
The Audi A4 is a spacious automobile. Its body, comprising mostly
high-strength and ultra high-strength steels, is rigid, lightweight and
safe. The sedan offers a trunk capacity of 480 liters (16.95 cu ft).
Capacity with the rear seat backs folded down (a standard feature in the
quattro versions) is 962 liters (33.97 cu ft). The A4 Avant offers 490 and
1,430 liters (17.30 and 50.50 cubic ft), respectively.
The interior offers all of the classic strengths of the brand, with
uncompromising fit and finish and logical, intuitive controls. When
equipped with a navigation system, the A4 features a color monitor and the
MMI operating system. Audi offers the luxurious climate-controlled comfort
seats as an option for the driver and front-seat passenger. Small fans
provide six-speed ventilation to the seat cushion and back.
The A4 model series has a particularly broad engine lineup with 13
powerplants. All of them feature direct-fuel injection and, with the
exception of the most powerful 3.2 FSI engine, are also turbocharged.
The V6 and the 2.0 TFSI feature different versions of the Audi valvelift
system, which uses two-stage variable valve lift to increase torque. A
start-stop system is standard with many of the engines; all come standard
with a recuperation system.
The most efficient model in the A4 lineup is the 2.0 TDI with 100 kW (136
hp). In the sedan, the four-cylinder diesel producing 320 Nm (236.02 lb-ft)
of torque consumes just 4.4 liters of diesel per 100 km (53.46 US mpg) on
average, a CO2 equivalent of just 115 grams per km (185.07 g/mile). The
model features the know-how from Audi's modular efficiency platform.
Two other particularly environmentally compatible engines join the 2.0 TDI
in the A4 lineup. A sophisticated purification system in the A4 3.0 TDI
clean diesel quattro largely eliminates nitrides of oxygen so that the V6
diesel satisfies all U.S. emission standards and also the future Euro 6
standard. The A4 2.0 TFSI flexible fuel is also designed for operation on
bioethanol E 85.

► 2012 Audi A4 Allroad OFFROAD
With its permanent all-wheel drive, the A4 allroad quattro is equally at
home on road and off. It is somewhat larger, particularly in height, than
the A4 Avant on which it is based. It offers 180 millimeters (7.09 in) of
ground clearance, and distinctive design details underscore its powerful
character. Here, too, the trunk holds from 490 to 1,430 liters (17.30 to
50.50 cu ft) of luggage. Optional features include a load-securing set and
an electromechanical rear hatch.
The Audi A4 allroad quattro is available with a choice of one gasoline and
three diesel engines. The 2.0 TDI with 105 kW (143 hp) combines the
recuperation system with the start-stop system. Like the 2.0 TDI with 125
kW (170 hp), it is available only with a six-speed manual transmission. The
seven-speed S tronic is available as an option for the 2.0 TFSI and the 3.0
