2016 Audi Allroad Overview

Is the 2016 Audi Allroad a Good Used Wagon?

The Audi Allroad is a so-so choice among used wagons. It handles corners well, comes standard with all-wheel drive, and fares well in crash tests.

On the other hand, some rivals get better fuel economy estimates, have more cargo space, and offer more comfortable seats. Additionally, the Allroad's reliability rating is below average.

How Much Does the 2016 Audi Allroad Cost to Own?

The 2016 Allroad's five-year costs for gas, insurance, repairs, and maintenance are projected to be around $29,700. You’ll likely pay less with other wagons.

Is It Better to Buy a Used or New Allroad?

The average price of a used 2016 Allroad is about $9,000 lower than the starting price of a new 2018 Allroad. However, the Allroad was redesigned for the 2017 model year, so there are some notable differences between the 2018 and 2016 models. The 2018 Allroad's engine puts out an additional 32 horsepower and gets slightly better fuel economy than the 2016 model. The 2018 has roomier rear seats and more available cargo space. It also offers more tech features, including driver assistance options like Audi's Pre Sense, traffic sign recognition, and lane keep assist. That's a lot of upgrades for the new model compared to the 2016. Still, it's up to you to decide if those features are worth the hefty price increase.

You may also want to look into some other 2018 wagons. The 2018 Volvo V60 is a luxury wagon with a starting price that’s just a few thousand dollars above the 2016 Allroad’s average price. A new V60 offers multiple powertrains; all have much more horsepower than the Allroad's lone engine. The V60 also gets better base fuel economy, and its upscale interior has plenty of tech features and incredibly comfortable seats.

You might also want to consider a nonluxury wagon like the 2018 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen or the 2018 Subaru Outback. Both have more cargo space than the 2016 Allroad and offer some additional features, and their starting prices are under $26,000 for the Subaru and under $22,000 for the VW.

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 one of the best, according to our research. It's rivaled only by Lexus and Infiniti.

2016 Audi Allroad Versus the Competition

Which Is Better: 2016 Audi Allroad or 2016 BMW 3 Series Sports Wagon?

The BMW 3 Series Sports Wagon gets better fuel economy than the Allroad, and it has slightly more cargo space. The 3 Series Sports Wagon has a spacious back seat, agile handling, and a comfortable ride. Factor in the Allroad's middling reliability rating, and the 3 Series wagon becomes a slightly better choice.

Which Is Better: 2016 Audi Allroad or 2016 Volvo V60?

The V60 has more standard and available features than the Allroad, but it is one of the few wagons that offer less cargo space than the Allroad.
