Audi has announced a series of annual updates for the A1, A4 Allroad quattro, Q7 and Q8 models. More specifically, the A1 Citycarver is now renamed Allstreet, the A4 Allroad quatro gets the optional Black Optics Pro package, and the Q7 and Q8 get new color options.
Starting with the A1, the Citycarver’s derivative of the crossover is making its way into Europe although it was discontinued from the UK due to slow sales. The only difference from the previous year is the name – the A1 Allstreet – with the miniature super winch retaining the same equipment and engine options. Prices remain the same, starting at €23,200 ($24,240) in Germany.
This is the first time Audi has used the Allstreet but it probably won’t be the last. As proven by our spy shots, there is a crossover variant of the Audi A3 on the road, which can also be called Allstreet, which distinguishes it from the more capable off-road A4 and A6 Allroad quatro models.

Switching to the A4 Allroad quattro, you get the optional new Black Optics Pro package available for €775 (US$810), which adds gloss black accents around the bodywork. These include the grille, air intakes, windshield frame, mirror caps, roof rails, diffuser, tailgate trim, Audi badges and A4 Allroad lettering. In addition, the fenders are now available in Manhattan Gray Metallic instead of the standard Matte Structure Gray, while shades of Chronos Gray and Distinct Green have been added to the color palette.
Audi did not neglect the large SUVs, the Q7 and Q8. Both models can be ordered in three new exterior colors – Satellite Silver (to replace Silver Fluorite), Waitomo Blue (to replace Galaxy Blue) and Tamarind Brown (to replace Barrick Brown). On the inside, it now comes standard with contrast stitching on the dashboard and features updated interior elements.
