2015 Audi Allroad and Infiniti QX60 – Snow Hill Climb [Video]

What do in a few inches of freshly fallen powder other than put the 2015 Audi Allroad and 2015 Infiniti QX60 through their paces. That means doing some donuts in the field and taking each up a very steep hill.

This a classic TFLcar mashup as these two vehicles don’t compete. The Audi Allroad uses a four-cylinder turbocharged 2.0L engine with 220 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. The power goes to all four wheels via the 8-speed automatic transmission and Audi’s Quattro system.


The Infiniti QX60 is a different animal altogether. Not only is it much larger and has three rows of seats, but it uses a normally aspirated 3.5L V6 with 265 horsepower and 248 lb-ft of torque. All wheels get power via a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT).

How do they handle the snow when wearing all-season tires? Can they make it up the steep hill? Does the traction control system allow for a good donut ability?
