Five-Point Inspection: 2013 Audi Allroad

Five-Point Inspection: 2013 Audi Allroad

1. Not another crossover

A wagon. Remember those? In an era when almost every new vehicle to hit the market is a crossover, the Audi Allroad is a refreshing change of pace.

Hoping to compete with those softroaders, but not step on the toes its stablemates (Q5, we’re looking at you) the Allroad offers added capability with 1.5-inches of extra ground clearance over the A4 sedan, for just over 7-inches total (about an inch less than the Q5). And of course Quattro all-wheel drive is standard for a price of $39,600.

    For the record, the cargo space is 27.6 cu ft with the rear seats up.  Not sure where the 17 came from.

    Right you are. Thanks for the correction. The article has been updated to reflect the change.

    I am definitely left wanting the return of Audi’s premium, sporty wagon!!!!!! I am keeping my 2001 Passat wagon, the best car I have ever owned, just as long as I possibly can, because there is almost nothing out there to match it.
