Five-Point Inspection: 2013 Audi Allroad

Five-Point Inspection: 2013 Audi Allroad

Options held hostage

That’s true of many other desirable features, including keyless access with a push-button ignition. Standard equipment on a lot of less pricey machines, Audi will charge you $550 for it a la carte or make you shell out an astronomical $9,200 extra to get the Prestige model… with a lot of other fancy items.

As for the brand’s Drive Select feature that let’s you customize settings like the steering, throttle, shocks and transmission, it’s only available on the $48,800 Prestige model for an additional $3,250 and also comes packaged with adaptive cruise control. Outrageous.

    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.
