KBB Expert Review

Vehicle Details Interior  Dashboard, center console, gear shifter view photo

The 2014 Audi Allroad may not look as roomy as the Q5 SUV, but an additional 3.5 inches in length gives it similar cargo volume at 27 (Allroad) vs. 29 cubic feet. With the rear seats folded down, the difference grows to 50 vs. 57 cubic feet. The Allroad does, however, give up a couple inches in rear legroom to the Q5, which is something to consider if you're weighing the two cars and regularly transport adults in back. Moving to the front seats, the Audi Allroad offers the same magic mix of materials, quality and design that keep Audi interiors at the top of the rankings.

Exterior   photo

Like Samson drew power from his long locks, the 2014 Audi Allroad also derives much of its strength from an aesthetic source: contrasting, matte-finish wheel arches. Yeah, there's the raised ride height and stainless steel skidplates, but the arches are the Allroad's black turtleneck. Of course, Audi will gladly paint the whole car one color – but only if you give them another $1,000 (and only on silver, black and white models).

Notable Standard Equipment

In addition to leather seating and other luxury basics, the 2014 Audi Allroad wagon includes a panoramic sunroof, heated front seats and a 6.5-inch color screen with audio/climate/vehicle controls. Also onboard is Bluetooth and Audi's music interface that allows for accessing music from an iPod or iPhone and control of said device via the car's audio system.

Notable Optional Equipment

Those cool Audi LED running lamps cost extra, but so do keyless entry and start, Bluetooth wireless technology, and other modern amenities you might expect to see on the standard equipment list of a $40,000 car today. A loaded 2014 Audi Allroad runs close to $60,000 and includes the world-class infotainment suite detailed in our Favorite Features section of this review, plus an impressive set of driver assistance and personalization technologies, including side-assist blind-spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control and navigation with Audi Connect.

Under the Hood

Other than unremarkable fuel economy, we like everything about the Allroad's familiar powertrain. The renowned 2.0T engine is matched with a smooth-shifting 8-speed automatic routing power to all four wheels via Quattro all-wheel drive. Audi says the 3,900-pound Allroad will scoot to 60 mph in 6.4 seconds, which is quicker than we might have guessed based on our initial drives. On one hand, those drives took place at altitude, where thinner air can affect power output. On the other hand, turbocharged engines take less of a hit at altitude. Curiously and disappointingly, the Allroad's rated fuel economy is the same as the heavier (by 200 pounds) and taller (by seven inches) Audi Q5 crossover. Top speed is electronically limited to 130 mph.

2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4
220 horsepower @ 4,450-6,000 rpm
258 lb-ft of torque @ 1,500-4,300 rpm
EPA city/highway fuel economy: 20/27 (gasoline), 14/18 (E85)

Pricing Notes

The 2014 Audi Allroad's $41,600 starting price is actually $4,000 higher than the Audi Q5's and about $3,000 more than the Audi A4 Avant wagon's, but it does offer more standard equipment than either. If that's way out of your budget, a Subaru Outback is the obvious alternative. If money is not an issue, the Cadillac CTS Performance wagon or BMW 328i xDrive might be a nice choice. Resale value promises to be an Audi Allroad strong suit. To be sure you're making your best deal, check our Fair Purchase Price to see what others in your area are paying for their Allroads.
