Car and Driver: New 2017 Audi A4 Allroad Wagon Priced Starting at $44,950, On Sale This Fall


Recommended Posts

2017 Audi A4 Allroad


If you’re hankering for an Audi station wagon in the U.S., here’s your only ticket: the Audi A4 Allroad, essentially a raised A4 Avant wagon with standard all-wheel-drive and extra body cladding. We first saw this redesigned Allroad, now based on the B9-generation A4—and thus the Volkswagen Group’s ubiquitous MQB platform—at the Detroit auto show earlier this year. We now have complete U.S.-spec information on the 2017 A4 Allroad before it’s on sale here this fall.


The A4 Allroad’s starting price rises $1300 to $44,950 for the base Premium trim level. That strikes us as reasonable, given the new Allroad’s larger size and its upgraded 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder that produces 252 horsepower, 32 horsepower more than its predecessor. Standard equipment includes adaptive dampers, leather seats, a panoramic sunroof, power front seats, forward collision warning, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and automatic climate control. Better-equipped $47,950 Premium Plus and $52,350 Prestige trim levels also are available; options include Audi’s “Virtual Cockpit” instrument cluster screen, a head-up display, a Bang & Olufsen sound system, and all sorts of active safety features like adaptive cruise control and lane-departure warning.

The 2.0-liter turbo-four remains the only engine choice for the new Allroad, and it pairs exclusively with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. The A4 Allroad’s raised suspension means it sits 1.3 inches higher off the ground than the standard A4 sedan, and it has an “Offroad” driving mode; we still wouldn’t encourage taking it on the Rubicon trail. Official EPA fuel-economy ratings aren’t available quite yet, but expect a downgrade from the A4 Quattro sedan’s 24/31 mpg city/highway—that, along with slightly dulled driving dynamics, is the price we pay for the Allroad’s butched-up, crossover-ized look.
