The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has given the Audi allroad a five-star overall crash safety rating. The 2014 and 2015 model years were tested through NHTSA’s New Car Assessment Program and managed to get a maximum rating that is only given to the cars which offer the greatest amount of rollover safety and crash protection beyond the requirements specified in the federal law.
We remind you the Audi allroad returned to United States back in 2013 after a seven-year hiatus and now it has reached the 2015MY which brings a longer list of standard equipment that includes xenon headlights, LED taillights, power tailgate and a three-zone climate control system. The vehicle also benefits from an anti-lock brake system with hydraulic brake assist which can automatically detect emergency braking and will apply full braking force to minimize the distance necessary to stop the vehicle.
Pricing for the 2015 Audi allroad starts at $42,400 and all versions come with a four-cylinder, 2.0-liter TFSI turbocharged gasoline engine developing 220 bhp and 258 lb-ft sent to a quattro all-wheel drive system through an eight-speed Tiptronic automatic transmission. This hardware setup grants the rugged wagon with a 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) run in 6.4 seconds and a top speed of 130 mph (210 km/h).
