Audi A4 Allroad quattro: Road test report

Audi A4 Allroad quattro

Nice road test report here with the Audi A4 Allroad quattro. Enjoy!

But in contrast to Subaru’s Montpelier shuttle bus, this Audi is a far more luxurious and better-fettled machine, like its A4 Avant forebear. The cabin is as well turned out as you’d expect, a veritable festival of high-buck materials screwed together with the precision of, well, an Audi. Leather upholstery is standard, as is trim woven from individual strips of stainless steel. Upgrade linings include open-pore matte walnut and layered oak.

The Allroad plies paved roads and gravel driveways at the behest of Audi’s 2.0-liter turbocharged four. With the engine frothing up 211 hp and spinning all four wheels through an eight-speed automatic, acceleration doesn’t exhilarate. Instead, the going is peaceful and easy, like the feeling target buyers get from their favorite band. That said, with all 258 lb-ft of torque available from just 1500 rpm, off-the-line grunt is decent, and we predict a fairly quick 0-to-60 run of 6.3 seconds.
