2009 Geneva: 2010 Audi A4 allroad quattro being considered for North America

After unveiling the new 2010 Audi A4 allroad quattro at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show, Audi is considering bringing the A4-based model to the North American Market. According to Peter Schwarzenbauer, Audi AG board member for sales and marketing, consumer interest in SUVs have prompted Audi to revisit the market for all-wheel-drive wagon.

Schwarzenbauer told Automotive News that time may be right for an allroad in the United States. Audi previously sold an A6 version of the allroad quattro in North America from 2000 to 2005.

The 2010 Audi A4 allroad quattro will be available in Europe later this summer with three engine choices including from a 211-hp 2.0L TFSI 4-cylinder and a 170-hp 2.0 TDI diesel.
