SPIED: Audi A4 Allroad Facelift caught winter testing

Audi A4 allroad quattro

We’ve already seen the facelifted version of the Audi A4 sedan, which brought about some new headlights, a slightly revised front fascia and some new exhausts. Now, though, we’re seeing some spy photos of the upcoming Audi A4 Allroad facelift (pre-facelift car shown above) and it looks exactly as we’d expect it to. (We don’t own the spy photos but they can be seen here)

In these photos, we can see a camouflaged Audi A4 Allroad doing some winter testing. Don’t mind the rood-mounted lights, as they’re just for winter testing and won’t be available on the actual car. Though, they do look cool.

Aside from those roof lights, it looks as we expected it to. So it has the new facelifted A4’s headlights, which lack the little notch in them, and its new grille and whatnot. As with all Allroad models, it also gets a slightly taller ride height and some black plastic body cladding. Those new headlights also seem to get the new indicator lights as the new Audi A1, as do the taillights.

Out back, it has the new trapezoidal exhaust tips as the standard A4 sedan facelift, which we’re not sure if we like better or not. Either way, it’s as expected.

Under the skin, it’s likely going to be identical to the Audi A4, with a 2.0 liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox and Quattro all-wheel drive. Although, A4 Allroad models get the Quattro Ultra version of the system, which is front-wheel drive for most of the time and doesn’t switch to all-wheel drive until necessary. Which has always seemed like an odd choice for the Allroad, considering it’s designed to go on, well, all the roads.

We’re not sure when the Audi A4 Allroad facelift will debut but it should be soon, considering the facelifted sedan has already hit the road.
