2019 Audi A4 allroad KBB Expert Review
The 2019 Audi A4 Allroad elegantly blends the amenities and ride quality of a luxury sedan, the utility and spaciousness of a wagon, and the adventurous attitude of a crossover SUV. Essentially a slightly raised, all-wheel-drive wagon version of the A4 premium sedan, the Audi Allroad is a special car that boasts strong individuality and practicality. Like other Audi models, the Allroad’s ride quality excellently combines sportiness, comfort and efficiency. And like other Audis, the Allroad has one of the most tech-forward, sophisticated interiors in the business. Starting just under $46,000, the Audi A4 Allroad’s price matches its premium badge, and is many thousands beyond more mainstream all-wheel-drive wagons like the Subaru Outback and the Audi’s own down-market cousin, the Volkswagen Golf Alltrack.
You'll Like This Car If...
If you want the spaciousness and all-wheel-drive capabilities of a small SUV but the athletic handling and efficiency of a luxury-sports sedan, the Audi A4 Allroad checks all the boxes. Amid a sea of SUVs, it also stands out with its elegant, sporty design.

Starting at nearly $46,000 and rising from there, the 2019 Allroad isn’t cheap. Its base price is even higher than the Audi Q5 luxury SUV. The new Volvo V60 Cross Country offers its own, Swedish sense of luxury and appealing design, while a loaded Subaru Outback or Volkswagen Alltrack still costs many thousands less than an Allroad.
What's New for 2019
Revamped just two years ago, the Audi Allroad isn’t significantly changed for 2019. Updates are limited to small trim adjustments.
The new Audi Allroad is something of a Goldilocks, in the best way possible: Its manners split the difference between the sportiness and firmness of a BMW, and the suppleness of a Lexus. The result is a ride that you can truly enjoy on any road. Furthermore, you can optimize the Allroad for the scenario at hand via the Drive Select, switching from Sport, Comfort and even an Off-road mode that optimizes the vehicle for the best traction. Power-wise, the Allroad’s turbocharged 4-cylinder engine feels rewarding with its 248 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque. The engine works quite well with the standard 7-speed dual-clutch automatic, with only a few instances of turbo lag and hesitation in our testing. With standard all-wheel drive (“quattro,” in Audi speak), the Allroad is a good choice for places where roads are snowy and slick. With only 6.5 inches of ground clearance, it’s not meant for serious off-roading, but rather lighter trails.
Without question one of our favorite Audi features, the virtual cockpit replaces the analog-instrument cluster with a 12.3-inch configurable digital display that can show virtual gauges, a huge Google Maps navigation display, audio setting and driving data. It’s like looking at the future, now.
HIGH-END AUDIO SYSTEM
We’re suckers for some audio bliss, and the Audi grants exactly that with the Bang & Olufsen system that can be had on the two higher trims. In addition to its 19 speakers and 755 watts of power, the system plays everything from higher-res FLAC digital files to compact discs.
The 2019 Audi Allroad's 5-passenger cabin is one of its best assets for both comfort and utility. Behind the rear seats is over 24 cubic feet of cargo space. Fold the 40/20/40-split rear seats, and there's an SUV-like 58.5 cubic feet of space. Ahead of the transmission lever is the MMI interface, a dial and auxiliary controls for audio, navigation and other functions on the 7-inch central display screen (8.3-inch in top-trim models). In addition to that central screen, mid- and top-trim models feature that virtual cockpit, which replaces the traditional analog instrument panel with a fully configurable 12.3-inch screen. We like that there’s a traditional volume control just to the right of the transmission lever. Harder to reach are the ignition button and drive-mode controls. The CD player? Look in the glove box.
If you don't think a station wagon can look cool, set your sights on the 2019 Audi Allroad. In one svelte shape it's able to pull off rugged, athletic, practical and luxurious -- the very traits it embodies overall. Up front is Audi's pronounced Singleframe grille with vertical slats, while side sills, underbody protectors and roof rails give it an outdoorsy vibe. The Allroad has 6.5 inches of ground clearance, which is slightly lower than its predecessor as well as the all-new Volvo V60 Cross Country, and quite a bit shy of the 8.7-inch figure of a Subaru Outback. The result is a sleek yet tough wagon that stands out from a crossover SUV.
Notable Standard Equipment
The 2019 A4 Allroad remains available in three trims: Premium, Premium Plus and Prestige. Even the base model Premium is well equipped with leather seating, 8-way-power driver's seat with 4-way lumbar support, adaptive-damping suspension, 7-inch color display with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, power tailgate, tri-zone climate control, panoramic sunroof and HomeLink garage-door opener. The basic audio system bundles a 180-watt AM/FM/CD system with two USB ports and Bluetooth. Standard safety systems include Pre Sense City, which can automatically apply the brakes to prevent a collision.
Notable Optional Equipment
For the mid-trim Allroad Premium Plus, Audi adds blind-spot monitoring (side assist), the virtual cockpit, navigation, hands-free tailgate and full LED headlights. Top-line Prestige models feature a head-up display that broadcasts driving data onto the windshield, a larger 8.3-inch display, adaptive cruise control, active lane-keep assist system, a 360-degree rearview camera and the Bang & Olufsen audio system. Optional on both these trims are a cold-weather package that bundles heated steering wheel and heated rear seats, and a warm-weather package with ventilated front seats, rear-window sunshades and power lumbar support for the front seats. Via the subscription-based Audi connected services, the Allroad can be had with Wi-Fi connectivity and detailed Google Earth mapping functionality.
Under the Hood
The 2019 Audi Allroad is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine that is connected to a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. It’s a potent and vivacious little engine that enables the Audi Allroad to go 0-60 mph in 5.9 seconds -- plenty quick for most applications. In addition to its slightly raised ground clearance, the Audi Allroad is distinguished by its standard quattro all-wheel-drive system, which makes this luxury wagon a favorite in cold-weather states. The Allroad uses premium unleaded gasoline, but with a combined fuel economy of 25 mpg, it is respectably efficient.

The 2019 Audi A4 Allroad has a Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) starting at $45,700, before destination charges. On the other end, a loaded top-line can reach over $57,000. At these prices, this Audi off-road wagon has traditionally been slightly pricier than its closest-of-kind rival, the Volvo V60 Cross Country. However, it’s roughly $20,000 less than the Jaguar XF Sportbrake. As we've mentioned, you could save several thousand with a Subaru Outback, or spend nearly half as much for the less prestigious yet still capable Volkswagen Alltrack. Before buying, be sure to check the KBB.com Fair Purchase Price to see what others in your area are paying. Given its niche status and Audi badge, the Allroad's resale value is expected to remain quite strong in the years ahead.
