Chances are you're either indifferent to the Audi Allroad – like most wagon-fearing Americans – or you love it. More versatile than an A4 sedan, (seemingly) more sensible than a Q5 crossov
Surprisingly, the 2013 Audi Allroad is no more fuel efficient than the larger and roomier Q5 crossover. And the Allroad's starting price is higher, too.
The reborn Audi Allroad is more confidence-inspiring than exciting, which is just how Allroad owners want it. In our first couple hours behind the wheel we were attacked by torrential rains on a mountain highway in Colorado, where the Allroad felt as situationally perfect as a Mai Tai in Hawaii.

Pros: "My wife, 5'1", likes it."
Cons: "Small car if you are average size."
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 1
"I have owned 2 A6s. I loved them. Room, comfort, great road cars. My wife liked the Allroad and we purchased it. I am only 6', 190, not a "big guy" by any stretch, but I hit my knees on the door frame every time I get into the car. I prefer my old Ford Ranger pickup to getting into this car. The car completely fails to meet my expectations from an Audi. As I said, it is my wife's car and she likes it. It gets 30MPG on the highway and looks nice. It is just not comfortable if you are an averaged sized man."
