2017 Audi Allroad Interior Review

Note: This interior review was created when the 2017 Audi Allroad was new.


Interior: 8.1

The interior of the 2017 Audi Allroad features an elegant design and premium materials. Comfort and space for passengers is plentiful all-around, including in the back seat. Cargo volume is about average for the class. The standard infotainment system is intuitive to use and features sharp graphics and quick responses.

  • "The 2017 Audi A4 Allroad shares much of its interior with the A4 sedan, which received high praise in our evaluations. Materials quality is excellent, even for this luxury class, with sturdy design and construction." -- Edmunds
  • "Audi knows how to design an interior, and the A4 Allroad reflects top-shelf soft-touch materials, real burl walnut trim and Audi's MMI with one of the best multifunction controllers in the business." -- New York Daily News
  • "We'd be hard pressed to think of an interior that Audi has screwed up recently, and the latest A4 has a particularly good one that translates well to the Allroad." -- Autoblog


The 2017 Audi Allroad seats five on standard leather upholstery with eight-way power-adjustable front seats. Other optional features include heated front seats, ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, front sport seats with four-way lumbar adjustments, and a heated steering wheel.

Passenger room is ample in each of the Allroad's seats, and the cabin itself feels very spacious. Tall passengers will have enough headroom and legroom in the back seat. The seats are all comfortable as well and provide good support up front.

The LATCH car-seat system in the Allroad hasn't been specifically reviewed, but the related A4's system earns praise for being easy to use. Both systems are similar with three top tether anchors that are easy to locate and attach to the car-seat straps. Lower anchors are easy to find as well, and it requires very little force to hook the connector straps.

  • When the back seats are in place, they're plenty comfortable for two adults, with ample head and knee room. Fitting three would be a squeeze, but it'd be doable over a short distance." -- Car and Driver
  • "Most of the Allroad's interior measurements remain identical to the A4 sedan, which likely means it will feel as spacious. When evaluating the sedan, we commented that the cabin felt more like a midsize luxury sedan, with an abundance of space for front and rear passengers. Six-footers could easily fit in the rear seats, and the Allroad even gains an advantage with slightly more headroom." -- Edmunds
  • The good news inside of the Allroad is that it's basically identical to the A4 sedan. That means the front seats provide plenty of support and room, and back-seat passengers receive an extra 2.5 inches of legroom compared to last year, though this is still no stretch limousine." -- New York Daily News

  • The updated [infotainment] system with a new scroll wheel is better than previous ones we've tried, and the touchpad is more responsive without being overly sensitive to inputs. The center 8.3-inch … screen is clear and bright, and the system is simple enough to adjust while sitting in the driver or passenger seat." -- Autoweek
  • "The sharp infotainment screen is placed high atop the dash, keeping more of the driver's attention on the road. The MMI system takes some getting used to, but after a short time, operation becomes second nature. The same can be said of the available virtual instrument panel that adds a distinct high-tech edge to the cabin." -- Edmunds
  • "The whole thing is powered by an Nvidia quad-core processor for smooth animation and crisply rendered text and graphics throughout all operations. It wouldn't be an exaggeration to say that Audi is offering the best designed, most fully featured and most usable cabin technology on the road today. And, if you still don't like what the automaker has to offer, standard Android Auto and Apple CarPlay allow drivers to bring their own tech into the cabin. Phone-based navigation, audio streaming and communication software can all be projected onto the center display and operated with the MMI touch wheel controller." -- CNET


The 2017 Allroad has 24.2 cubic feet of cargo space, which is expandable to 58.5 cubic feet with the back seat folded down. Those values are about average for the class. The rear seat can be folded in three different sections, offering more utility than cars whose seats fold in a 60/40 split.

  • "Cargo space is generous for the class, with 24.2 cubic feet available behind the rear seats and 58.5 cubic feet with them folded." -- Edmunds
  • There also is a divider to protect back-seat passengers from loose items, and the seatback folds in 40/20/40 sections for maximum versatility. Drop the seats all the way and there are 59 cubic feet to fill." -- Car and Driver
