      The launch process of the Audi A4 allroad for America has officially begun. This week Audi began launch training with dealer personnel at the Deer Valley Ski Resort in Park City, Utah. Shawn Malizo of Highland Park, Illinois-based dealer The Audi Exchange was in attendance and has filed these impressions to share with Fourtitude readers.

      I've seen multiple references to color matched lowers, but also that they will be matte finish rather than the same gloss paint/clear as the rest of the body. Can Shawn, George, or someone with official info shed some light on this?

      Looks like euro headlights and grill. Any better pics of he rear?

      Also, does the allows have a shorter length than the a4 avant?

      Allroad is 4721mm long, compared to Avant at 4699mm long.

      What seems odd is when measured from outer edge of mirror, the Allroad is 2006mm only wide, compared to Avant at 2040mm. I suspect its a typo, since the Allroad is supposed to be wider, unless the mirrors are different.

      Dimensions are quoted from the UK order guide.

      That's all we've got right now but these were European spec cars with 7-speed S-tronic.

      George, I'm hearing rumors that US allroads will be coming with ADS standard. Can you confirm, deny, or find out?

      Checking on this Blake. BTW, sport seats and sport steering wheel will be optional but S-line trim is not offered with any allroad worldwide.

      Thanks George! FWIW, black headliner appears to be an option in Europe, so hopefully we get that at least!

      I checked in for a firm answer. It is part of the Driver Assistance Package on Prestige. Only dynamic steering is available for allroad. Not dampers or sport diff.

      Asked on this as well. Black headliner for Chestnut Brown interior only for now.

      it wouldn't be cost effective to simply discard the damping feature if one upgraded to coilovers. not having this feature as standard almost makes the decision to upgrade to aftermarket suspension a bit easier.

      george, it appears the allroad vehicles at the autoshows or for test drives are not equipped with opensky panoramic roof. will this still be an option for this particular avant trim level? perhaps your sources can clarify! thx.

      Confirmed. Open Sky on all North American A4 allroads.
