Audi Allroad is somewhere between a wagon and an SUV

Crossover vehicles are all the rage these days, providing the utility of a sport utility without guzzling the gas like one. Audi’s all new Allroad was unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show this week, and it is said that this car bridges the gap between the company’s Q7 SUV and A6 Avant wagon.

You’ll get Audi’s trademark Quattro four-wheel-drive system found on its A6 line, but achieve greater ground clearance thanks to the adjustable air suspension. You could not ever imagine off-roading in a station wagon, but the Allroad can, well, handle all roads, even where there aren’t any.

You have your choice of a 2.7-litre V6 turbodiesel (available in six-speed manual or automatic), or a 4.2 litre V8 gasoline unit (automatic transmission only).

Top Gear is reporting a UK launch date of this September, with prices starting at £30,000 (~$52,600 USD). No word yet on whether this will come to North America, nor what, if any, changes would be made before that happens.
