The Prologue Allroad concept provides a hint at the future styling of models, like the A4 and A6 Allroad. The Prologue Allroad takes the Avant concept, but its design is slightly modified for rougher terrain. It has a higher ride height, flared wheel arches and beefier bumpers. The Prologue Allroad rides on massive 22-inch wheels with a five-arm design.

The interior features a new display and operating concept. Across its full width, the front of the instrument panel is designed to be a display surface which integrates three touch displays. Aluminum frames surround the driver displays to the right and left of the steering wheel. The front passenger can configure infotainment options using a widescreen display fully integrated into the instrument panel. The passenger can swipe to send these to the right driver display or to the Audi virtual cockpit future behind the steering wheel.

One cool feature is the “butler” software program that identifies the passengers as they get in based on their smartphones and adjusts the seats and climate control system according to their preferences. The system also makes suggestions for music and route planning according to the owner’s preferences. The Easy Slot system in the center console connects the phones with the onboard infotainment system and charges them inductively.
