Just compress the suspension a bit to take away its Allroad pretensions and rake its backlight to align better with the previous generation's aesthetic, and you're pretty well there. What you're looking at <em>officially</em>, of course, is the Audi Allroad Shooting Brake, a four-seat E-Tron hybrid showcar powered by Audi's venerable 2.0-liter TFSI four-cylinder (good for 292 horsepower) backed by a 40-kW electric motor and a secondary 85-kW motor acting upon the rear axle to provide low- and moderate-speed drive. The latter also provides through-the-road Quattro all-wheel drive when extra traction and power is called for.<br /><br />All-in, Audi says the Allroad Shooting Brake's ETron powertrain is good for 408 horsepower and total system torque of 479 pound-feet, enough to haul the 3,500-pound German to 62 miles per hour in 4.6 seconds and up to a governed 155 mph. Despite that tidy performance, <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/audi/">Audi</a> says the Allroad Shooting Brake offers robust fuel consumption of 1.9 liters per 100k, equivalent to 124 miles per gallon, with a bladder-busting range of 510 miles.</p>

<p>As previewed last week at the <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/tag/ces/">Consumer Electronics Show</a>, the Allroad Shooting Brake features Audi's forthcoming <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2014/01/08/audi-tt-interior-virtual-cockpit-mmi-video/">Virtual Cockpit technology</a>, which includes a massive 12.3-inch in-cluster TFT screen that provides digital gauges and telltales for the navigation and audio systems, among other features. The latter's information can be controlled by Audi's latest-generation Multi Media Interface (MMI), whose brilliant gesture control pad now sits resident atop an enlarged selector knob between the seats.</p><p><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2014/01/13/audi-allroad-shooting-brake-detroit-2014/" rel="bookmark">Continue reading <em>Audi Allroad Shooting Brake is a TT peep show</em></a></p><p style="padding:5px;background:#ddd;border:1px solid #ccc;clear:both;"><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2014/01/13/audi-allroad-shooting-brake-detroit-2014/">Audi Allroad Shooting Brake is a TT peep show</a> originally appeared on <a href="http://www.autoblog.com">Autoblog</a> on Mon, 13 Jan 2014 20:31:00 EST.
