2021 Audi A4 vs Audi A4 allroad Exterior

Differences: Shape & Size

The key difference between these two models is the body style. Both vehicles are built on the same underlying chassis, so they're basically identical in overall height, width and length. But with its station wagon-like body and upright rear hatchback, the 2021 Audi A4 allroad® gives you more than twice as much cargo room. The ideal companion for camping trips, road trips and day trips to the beach, the 2021 Audi A4 allroad® promises some extra versatility. The regular 2021 Audi A4 is a sedan with a sleeker shape and a smaller trunk.

You can tell the 2021 Audi A4 allroad® was built for more adventure thanks to a few unique features you don't find on the standard Audi A4 like built-in aluminum roof rails and a more rugged body kit with stylish, protective skid plates.

Differences: Performance

Entry-level 2021 Audi A4 models generate 201 standard horsepower from a turbocharged engine. You can also upgrade to a more powerful version of that engine delivering 261 horsepower.

By contrast, the entry-level Audi A4 engine isn't available at all on the 2021 Audi A4 allroad®. All new A4 allroad® models get the 261 horsepower engine as standard -- so you have more gumption for steep slopes and heavy cargo. Maybe best of all, the 2021 Audi A4 allroad® also features standard adaptive suspension damping. The firmness of the suspension will adjust based on the current road conditions and your driving needs. For a quieter, sportier ride on smooth pavement and a more controlled, more comfortable one over bumpy dirt roads and rough asphalt.
