Audi's renowned 2-liter turbocharged inline-four powers all allroads, and is matched with an eight-speed automatic transmission that routes power to all four wheels via Quattro all-wheel drive. Fuel economy numbers are 20 mpg city and 27 mpg highway.
In base trim—which Audi calls Premium—the allroad is comes with standard amenities like a panoramic sunroof, leather upholstery, heated front seats and a 6.5-inch color screen with audio/climate/vehicle controls. Also included: a 10-speaker audio system, Bluetooth connectivity and an iPod interface.
Opting for option groups adds desirable extras, but they're pricey:
- Premium Plus trim adds xenon headlights, keyless entry and push-button start.
- Prestige includes adaptive xenon plus headlights, voice-controlled navigation, and a 14-speaker Bang and Olufsen sound system.
Other options include an impressive set of driver assistance and personalization technologies, including side-assist blind-spot monitoring and adaptive cruise control.
