Thinking of leasing a Audi A4 Allroad?

The U.S. News Best Price Program saves users an average of $3,206 off the MSRP, and a lower price equals lower monthly lease payments. That means you could see a savings of $90 a month on a 36-month lease.

 Is the Audi Allroad a Good Wagon?  

Yes, the 2020 Audi Allroad is a great luxury wagon. It boasts a top-notch interior with comfortable seats and an intuitive touch-screen infotainment system. It rates highly for crash safety and is available with many driver assistance features. The Allroad is rewarding to drive too. It carves corners with confidence, it rides smoothly on rough pavement, and its four-cylinder turbo engine supplies plenty of muscle for everyday driving. While the Allroad should have plenty of cargo space for most shoppers, there are some wagons that offer more.

Should I Buy the Audi Allroad?

The Allroad is a fine pick in this class. That said, you may want to test-drive some of its rivals before you buy. The Volvo V60 wagon has a jaw-dropping interior and more standard tech and safety features than the Audi, but its driving dynamics aren’t as crisp. The Subaru Outback clobbers the competition on price and cargo capacity, but its interior materials are less impressive.

Should I Buy a New or Used Audi Allroad?

Audi redesigned the Allroad wagon for the 2017 model year. Aside from gaining standard heated front seats for 2018, the 2020 model is the first to see notable changes since the redesign. The 2020 Allroad features a new touch-screen infotainment system and refreshed exterior styling.

If these updates don’t interest you, consider opting for a used 2017 Allroad, 2018 Allroad, or 2019 Allroad, which are similar to a new Allroad but likely less expensive. Also check out our Used Car Deals page to learn about savings and discounts you can find on used vehicles.

Audi Allroad Versus the Competition

Which Is Better: Audi Allroad or Audi A4?

The Audi Allroad is a wagon variant of the Audi A4 sedan. Both are good options, and choosing between them may be a matter of personal preference. They have the same interior styling, infotainment systems, and four-cylinder turbo engines, as well as many of the same tech and safety features. The A4 is a better value. Prices start at just $37,400, a whopping $7,200 less than the Allroad. On the other hand, the Allroad’s larger cargo area makes it a lot more practical and family-friendly.

Which Is Better: Audi Allroad or Audi Q5?

It’s a similar story with the Audi Q5 SUV. The Q5 echoes many of the Allroad’s highlights, from its rich cabin materials and roomy seating space to its available safety features, punchy engine performance, and composed handling. It offers similar cargo space, and it’s priced about the same as well. The biggest difference, other than styling, is that the Q5 has a higher driving position that provides a more commanding view of the road ahead. If that’s what you want, go with the Q5. Otherwise, the Allroad is still a great pick.

Allroad Interior       

How Many People Does the Allroad Seat?

The Audi A4 Allroad is a wagon with five seats. The front seats are comfortable and supportive, and there’s ample head- and legroom for taller occupants. The rear seats are nicely cushioned as well, and there’s enough space for two adults to sit comfortably. Leather upholstery and heated front seats are standard. Ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, and a heated steering wheel are available.

Allroad and Child Car Seats

The A4 Allroad has two complete sets of LATCH connectors for the rear outboard seats, as well as a tether-only connection for the rear middle seat. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave this LATCH system the highest rating of Good for its ease of use.

Allroad Interior Quality

Like many other Audi vehicles, the Allroad’s interior manages to look elegant and luxurious without verging on ostentatious. The styling is clean and minimalist, and the materials have a quality look and feel. The cabin also does a nice job of muffling road and wind noise.

Allroad Cargo Space

The A4 Allroad has 24.2 cubic feet of cargo space with its rear seats upright and 58.5 cubic feet with them folded down. That’s decent for a wagon, but short of rivals like the Subaru Outback.

Allroad Infotainment, Bluetooth, and Navigation

The Audi Allroad comes standard with a 10.1-inch touch screen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, HD Radio, 10 speakers, Bluetooth, two USB ports, and tri-zone automatic climate control. Available features include navigation, a Wi-Fit hot spot, a smartphone charging pad, satellite radio, a 19-speaker Bang & Olufsen stereo, and a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster.

This touch-screen infotainment system responds promptly to inputs and features sharp graphics and straightforward menus. The screen is within the driver’s line of sight, making it easy to adjust when on the go. There are also physical buttons and knobs for the audio volume and climate control functions, so you don’t have to rely on the touch screen for everything.

If you want the latest and greatest tech, opt for the Audi Virtual Cockpit system. This 12.3-inch screen replaces the standard instrument cluster, and it can be customized to display as little or as much information as you want.

Allroad Performance

Allroad Engine: Good Ingredients

The Audi Allroad is equipped with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 248 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque. A seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and all-wheel drive are also standard.

The engine feels punchy and scoots the Audi around town confidently. Acceleration is pretty good, and going from zero to 60 mph takes about six seconds. There’s also plenty of power for climbing hills and passing other vehicles on the highway. The dual-clutch transmission provides mostly quick and smooth gear changes.

Allroad Gas Mileage: Not Too Shabby

The A4 Allroad gets an EPA-rated 23 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway. That’s about average for the wagon segment.

Allroad Ride and Handling: Smooth Sailing

The Audi A4 Allroad comes standard with an adaptive suspension, and it strikes a nice balance between comfort and sportiness. This setup keeps the Audi stable through tight turns, while also sopping up bumps and dips in the road with ease. The steering is quick, and the brakes provide good stopping power.

The Allroad’s Quattro all-wheel-drive system makes quick work of slick pavement and snow-covered roads. This Audi wagon is no Land Rover, but it has enough ground clearance and traction control aids to manage the occasional dirt road or wooded trail.

Which Audi Allroad Model Is Right for Me?

The 2020 Audi A4 Allroad comes in three trim levels: Premium, Premium Plus, and Prestige. The entry-level Premium trim is a good pick for most shoppers. It’s well-equipped with standard tech features, and it shares the same turbocharged engine and all-wheel-drive layout as the two higher trims. That said, you’ll want to upgrade to the Premium Plus or Prestige trims if you’re interested in active safety features such as adaptive cruise control or lane keep assist, which are not available in the base model.

Audi Allroad Premium

The base A4 Allroad Premium trim has a starting price of $44,600. Standard features include a 10.1-inch touch screen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth, two USB ports, HD Radio, 10 speakers, remote keyless entry, push-button start, a power liftgate, three-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, heated front seats, a panoramic sunroof, an adaptive suspension, and 18-inch wheels. Standard safety features include a rearview camera, low-speed forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, and LED headlights with automatic high beams.

Available features include a $1,500 Convenience package with blind spot monitoring, proximity keyless entry, a hands-free power liftgate, and satellite radio.

Audi Allroad Premium Plus

The midrange A4 Allroad Premium Plus trim starts at $47,700. This trim adds parking sensors, a smartphone charging pad, and a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster (Audi's Virtual Cockpit), plus the contents of the Convenience package.

A number of options are available, including a navigation system and a Wi-Fi hot spot ($1,600), ventilated front seats ($1,450), a heated steering wheel and heated rear seats ($650), and a 19-speaker Bang & Olufsen stereo ($950). The available Driver Assistance package ($1,500) adds adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, and low-speed traffic jam assist.

Audi Allroad Prestige

The A4 Allroad Prestige trim has an MSRP of $53,650. It comes nearly fully loaded, adding a navigation system, a Wi-Fi hot spot, a Bang & Olufsen stereo, a surround-view parking camera system, parallel park assist, traffic sign recognition, a head-up display, and the contents of the Driver Assistance package. Ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, and a heated steering wheel are optional.

The Final Call

The 2020 Audi Allroad is a standout pick in the wagon class. It boasts a strong engine, refined handling, and a roomy interior with posh materials. It’s also packed with easy-to-use tech. It rates highly for crash safety, and it’s available with many advanced driver assistance features. The Allroad may trail nonluxury rivals like the Subaru Outback in total cargo space, but for many buyers, the Allroad’s all-around quality is worth sacrificing a bit of cargo room.

Don’t just take our word for it. Check out comments from some of the reviews that drive our rankings and analysis.

  • "While it might look rough-and-tumble like an SUV, the 2020 Audi A4 Allroad drives like the luxury car it's based on, albeit with a little more ground clearance for traversing snowy roads or rutted dirt driveways. This is the Audi that your wealthy, kayaking, adventure-seeking neighbor would buy if he wasn't convinced he needed a Jeep Wrangler or a Toyota 4Runner. There's a punchy turbocharged four-cylinder engine under the hood and standard Quattro all-wheel drive, so while it can't tackle the Rubicon alongside the Jeep and Toyota, it'll get through severe weather better than a normal sports sedan and offers more than the average SUV. Plus, it looks great and handles dry curvy roads far better, too." -- Car and Driver
  • "It’s an intriguing fusion of SUV/crossover attributes applied to a traditional passenger-car-based station wagon. The allroad has satisfying acceleration, athletic handling, and a comfortable, classy interior. Add to that all-weather versatility and a bit of mild off-roading ability, and Audi’s genre-bending compact wagon becomes a nice alternative to a premium-compact SUV." -- Consumer Guide
  • "The 2019 Audi A4 Allroad elegantly blends the amenities and ride quality of a luxury sedan, the utility and spaciousness of a wagon, and the adventurous attitude of a crossover SUV. Essentially a slightly raised, all-wheel-drive wagon version of the A4 premium sedan, the Audi Allroad is a special car that boasts strong individuality and practicality." -- Kelley Blue Book (2019)
