Costs & verdict

Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

The A4 Allroad is much more expensive to buy than the A4 Avant. That’s partially down to the limited range of engines and standard fit Quattro four-wheel drive. It’s also because of a high level of standard equipment.

Regardless of engine, you get 17in alloy wheels, Xenon headlights, off-road styling touches, three-zone climate control, gear-shift paddles, a 40/20/40 split folding rear seat, electric tailgate, electric load cover, a 7.0in infotainment system with DAB radio, Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and keyless go.

There is also a Sport trim that adds bigger wheels, LED lights front and rear, sports seats, sat-nav and an upgraded stereo.

Emissions and economy are worse than the A4 Avant although should still be affordable for most. You get a three-year/60,000 mile warranty as standard although this can be extended for a fee.
