Used Car: 2013 Audi Allroad Review
Test drivers liked the 2013 Audi Allroad’s beautiful interior styling, though it has less cargo space than many competitors.
The 2013 Audi Allroad comes with a turbocharged four-cylinder engine, and critics said it offers strong acceleration in most situations. The Allroad has standard all-wheel drive, which is unusual in this class, and its eight-speed automatic transmission pleased reviewers with its seamless shifts. The 2013 Allroad gets an EPA-estimated 20/27 mpg city/highway, which is worse than what the 2013 Subaru Outback gets, but better than the all-wheel drive 2013 Volvo XC70’s ratings. While not quite sporty, reviewers said the Audi Allroad offers an enjoyable driving experience thanks to a comfortable ride, balanced handling and light, yet responsive, steering.
Reviewers agreed that the 2013 Audi Allroad’s interior has handsome styling, top-notch materials and excellent build quality. Some test drivers said the Allroad’s front seats are comfortable for taller people, but others wrote that it’s difficult to find a good driving position and that the rear seats could use more legroom. The 2013 Audi Allroad has a maximum of 50.5 cubic feet of cargo space, which is less than what most rival wagons offer. The Allroad comes standard with a panoramic sunroof, leather upholstery and automatic climate control. Available features include Bluetooth, a power liftgate and Audi’s MMI navigation system with Audi Connect, which offers Google Earth imagery and a Wi-Fi hot spot. Many of the Allroad’s audio and climate controls have to be accessed through the MMI system, which makes them difficult to use, according to some critics.
Other Wagons to Consider
The 2013 Acura TSX Sport Wagon has more cargo space than the Allroad, and critics liked its high-end interior materials. They also appreciated the TSX Sport Wagon’s agile handling and its peppy four-cylinder engine.
Reviewers agreed that the 2013 Cadillac CTS Sport Wagon has a modern, stylish interior design, and they wrote that its available 3.6-liter V6 engine is quite potent. The CTS Sport Wagon also has a larger cargo area than the Audi Allroad.
