  • Plenty of space inside for passengers and boot space
  • Strong looks
Against
  • Not a replacement for traditional 4x4 so make sure it meets your needs
  • Parking can be an issue due to size
  • Slight body roll but not a big issue
Road Test

Avant estate with specific allroad body style has been elevated and widened which does cause a bit more body roll. The additional size can make parking harder in town as this is a large bulky car. Key features are the art deco train grill, panoramic roof option and wheel-arch extensions. Passengers have generous legroom and plenty of bootspace for luggage. Under-body protection has been added so although this is not a traditional four-wheel drive off-roader it is still capable of dealing with muddy tracks with the allroad specific ESP and 'surface-sensing Off road Detection technology'. Available in 2.0-litre TFSI with Audi valvelift technology. 2.0-litre TDI 170bhp and 3.0-litre TDI 240bhp. Strong build quality the A4 allroad is a smooth ride with plenty of go 0-62mph in 6.4 seconds. Six speed manual gearbox in 2.0 TDI with the 2.0 TFSI and 3.0 TDI use the S tronic twin-clutch gearbox. Just one spec available the SE, comes with 18" alloys, electronic climate control, a 10-speaker Audi Concert CD system, automatic headlight and wiper operation and a full-colour Driver's Information System. It's a good practical estate if you sometimes need to head over fields and want a quality premium brand with strong looks.
