Which Model Year of the Audi Allroad Is Best?

The 2015 Allroad is part of a generation that debuted for the 2013 model year and ended with the 2016 Allroad. For 2014, Audi increased the engine’s horsepower from 211 to 220 and added standard Bluetooth. Audi added a standard power liftgate to the 2015 Allroad. There were no major changes for 2016.

Changes throughout the model years are minimal, so you could opt for a 2014 Allroad and still get a fairly similar vehicle to a 2015 model. Shoppers looking for more features and horsepower should consider the fully redesigned 2017 Allroad. Some of its advantages over the previous generation include a revamped Quattro all-wheel-drive system and the addition of a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. For this model year, the Allroad also gained support for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, as well as a larger infotainment screen.

What Does Audi's Certified Pre-Owned Warranty Cover?

Audi offers a certified pre-owned program for cars five years old or less and with fewer than 60,000 miles. Qualifying vehicles bought under the new-car warranty period have coverage until five years from the vehicle’s original in-service date, with no mileage limitation. Certified pre-owned Audis purchased after the four-year new-car warranty has ended receive an additional one-year/unlimited-mileage comprehensive warranty. This is not an extension of the new-car warranty. The two warranties differ in important ways, so read Audi’s warranty page carefully. Audi CPO models must pass a 300-plus-point inspection.

Among luxury car manufacturers, Audi’s CPO program is about average, according to our research. You’ll find better programs from Infiniti, Lexus, and Jaguar.

2015 Audi Allroad Versus the Competition

Which Is Better: 2015 Audi Allroad or 2015 BMW 3 Series Sports Wagon?

The 2015 BMW 3 Series is available in a wagon body style called the Sports Wagon. Like the Allroad, it has a potent turbocharged engine and a refined interior. Despite those upsides, we suggest the BMW over the Audi. Though the Allroad has a better reliability rating, the 3 Series Sports Wagon has an even more enjoyable ride and earns better fuel economy estimates. The BMW also has more cargo and passenger space.

Which Is Better: 2015 Audi Allroad or 2015 Subaru Outback?

The 2015 Subaru Outback is a good alternative to the Allroad on account of its significantly larger cargo area and rear seating space. Both cars have standard AWD, but the Outback’s engine is weak compared to that of the Allroad, and this Subaru has a poor reliability rating. However, the Outback has superior fuel efficiency and a substantially lower average list price. Picking between these two comes down to personal preference.

2015 Allroad Performance

How Does the 2015 Audi Allroad Drive?

The Allroad maintains a composed ride, and its standard all-wheel drive gives it plenty of road grip in inclement weather conditions.

The layout of the standard MMI infotainment system isn’t the most intuitive, and the control knob is located on the dash. With the upgraded version of the system, the controls are located between the front seats, making it easier to use. That said, both systems have quick response times and sharp graphics.

The Allroad comes standard with a 6.5-inch display, a 10-speaker audio system, satellite radio, and Bluetooth. Available features include a 14-speaker Bang & Olufsen audio system, navigation, voice control, the upgraded MMI infotainment system with center console controls, and HD Radio.
