Expert Review

Overall Rating


Audi took a lot of feedback from its existing customers about the previous-gen Audi A4 Allroad and has managed to successfully incorporate those in the ride's 2020 iteration. The 2020 Audi A4 Allroad undergoes a reduction in power from the 2018 variant in lieu of Higher MPG figures and sees an improvement in the features list. The Premium Plus trim now gets standard Navigation while a Wireless Charging Pad makes its way into the lineup as well.

2020 Audi A4 allroad Wagon Features

8.0/10

The 2020 Audi A4 All Road comes in a total of 3 trims-Premium, Premium plus, Prestige. All trims derive power by the famed 2.0L Turbocharged Fuel Stratified Injection Motor that delivers 248hp (252hp in 2018) and 273lbs.-ft. Of torque. All trims come loaded with premium features with the base Premium Trim getting features like Heated Front Seats, Leather Seating, Panoramic Sunroof and more.

Trim to choose

Considering the 2020 Audi A4 All-Road will be mostly bought by people who would want to venture in cross country tours, we would suggest the Prestige trim for the same purpose. It offers an uptown sound experience and a ton of safety features that are essentials for trips like those. Moreover, the Premium trim sans the basic Audi trademark features such as LED headlamps and the driver-assist features offered in this trim, may just not be sufficient enough for the ride to wade through long cross country tours without a scratch. Speaking of the Premium Plus trim, which costs around $51,595, may not seem like a really sensible choice since in an extra $3000, you can get features such as Bang and Olufsen sound system, and a lot more driver-assist highlights, in the Prestige trim. 

2020 Audi A4 allroad Wagon Engine and Performance

"The Allroad handles well on the pavement, and it's also fairly capable if you head off-road."- Cars.USnews

Engine and Transmission

The most significant change done to the 2020 Audi A4 Allroad comes in the form of detuning the Engine in lieu of better MPG figures. The 2020 Audi A4 Allroad gets the same 2.0L TFSI Inline 4 Motor but now belts out 248hp(a drop of 4bhp from 2018) and 273lbs.-ft. Of torque. The transmission duties continue to be performed by the 7 Speed S-Tronic dual Clutch Transmission as last year. This unit feels sluggish to respond at low speeds but shows its true colors past School Zone on City Limit speeds. The transmission setup for the A4 Allroad, which may feel a bit lazy at low revs, can pull off the exciting drive character very well too. This setup is good enough to make snappy and precise shifts when gliding on high-speeds.  The engine, when infused with the 7-speed automated transmission feels agreeable, effective and generates just the right amount of power for a vehicle of this dimension. The power feels just right to elevate the wagon for some spirited driving while maintaining a pocket-friendly fuel-economy.

Rivals have taken notice of the Audi and hence updated themselves to take on the Ingolstadt based Giant. The 2020 Volvo V60 offers the most power in the category with its twin-turbo motor while the Jaguar XF comes a close second to the Volvo. Both the offerings from the house of Volvo and Jaguar boast an 8 Speed Shiftable Automatic transmission, whereas the A4 Allroad gets a 7 Speed Automated Manual transmission. 

Acceleration

Despite being underpowered than its rivals, the 2020 Audi A4 Allroad manages to put to shame all of them in terms of acceleration figures. The 5.2 Seconds timing for the 0-60MPH dash and the 14.3 sec time for the quarter-mile run makes the Audi, one of the fastest wagons in the country today. The A4 Allroad can catapult you from one traffic signal to the other one, faster than most of the competitors. The 2.0-liter turbo-4 confidently glides on highways and does not tremble even at high speeds. The A4 Allroad performs with class, all credits to its refined engine which makes every ride in the A4 a smoot, and muffled one.

The Volvo V60 is the most powerful wagon in this comparison but loses out in performance due to its AWD configuration and underperforming Turbochargers. The Audi A4, despite being the underdog in terms of power, manages to accomplish the fastest sprint from 0-60. The Jaguar XF Sportbrake manages to pull a close chase with the A4 with its 0-60 time of 5.7 seconds. However, the Jag may lag behind the A4 in 0-60 dash but manages to cover the quarter-mile distance in a similar time span. 

Handling and Steering

The steering is quite light and responsive, so it's easy to go around the parking lot. The car handles pretty decently on the curves and along the pavements making the ride smooth. The body responds well to steering inputs and gives a perfect feel of the road to the driver.

The new adaptive air suspension allows you to go off-roading in this beast. The suspension offers decent comfort and you won't feel much bumps or potholes inside the A4 Allroad. What gives the Audi an edge over its other rivals is its superb Quattro AWD system that maximizes every small bit of traction available from the motor to maximum road grip.

2020 Audi A4 Allroad Handling

Considering its wagon body shape, the A4 Allroad's driving capabilities are nothing less than a fantasy come true. The ride, especially in the Auto driving mode, balances handling and steering extremely well. The A4 Allroad provides a decent grip on corners and handles bumps pretty comfortably. 

Braking

The 2020 Audi A4 Allroad does seemingly well in terms of braking performance. The brake pedal is soft in operation and modulates easily. To prevent a collision, there is a Pre-sense safety system as a standard that stops the car from a collision. The car is equipped with front and rear discs and both of them are quite capable of stopping the wagon.

2020 Audi A4 allroad Wagon Fuel Economy

With the detuning of the 2018 A4 Allroads's Motor, Audi has managed to achieve higher MPG figures in the 2020 Audi A4 Allroad's case. The 2020 A4 Allroad now delivers a combined 27MPG and 34MPG on the Highway. This has been made possible due to the reduction in power output and subtle changes in the power delivery of the motor.

"The Allroad's cabin is functionally and aesthetically one of the best in class, and it's highly accommodating of drivers of all sizes"- Edmunds

Seating and Comfort

The Allroad's cabin is one of the best in class in terms of space, tech, and features. Front seats are pretty comfortable and offer decent support for a comfortable ride. There's enough legroom and headroom available at the rear for a 6-footer to sit comfortably. The A4 Allroad's interior emits a plush, sensible, and opulent vibe, and is an ideal balance of aesthetics and practicality. With features such as adjustable leather seats, a panoramic sunroof, and three-zone automatic climate control on-board, the A4 boasts everything that a person expects from a luxury set of wheels. Most of the drivers are going to find the Allroad's driving position pretty confident and comfortable at the same time. The steering wheel is highly versatile with a wide range of tilt and telescopic variations, and the dashboard has ideal height for the driver to see the instrumentation clearly, without much eye-movement.

The screen is easy to navigate through and the driver can switch from one app to another, without diverting his concentration towards the screen. The ride also gets a 12.3" Audi Virtual Cockpit, in place of the gauge cluster. This panel can be used to show either a digital version of a traditional cluster layout or a more infotainment-focused display. The Audi A4 Allroad gets a 19 Speaker B&O Audio System with HD/SiriusXM Satellite Radio in its top trim, which is pretty potent.

Wagon aficionados will be pleased with this one. The Audi Allroad's cargo is very usefully sized and easy to access. The 40/20/40-split back seat folds almost flat. Low lift-over height makes for easy cargo loading. The front seat area has numerous nooks and pockets, too.

Dimension and Design

The 2020 Audi A4 Allroad is a typical Wagon from the outside but Audi has ensured that the A4 Allroad retains all Audi specific characters. The Front grill takes its inspirations from the current Crop of Audis while the Matrix LED Headlamps complement the design.

2020 Audi A4 allroad Wagon Competition

Audi A4 Allroad vs Volvo V60

The Volvo V60 beats the Audi on paper on a number of fronts. Be it the features, be it power or safety. In reality though, the Volvo has an upperhand only in the safety department and in no other area. The Audi is the better built of the 2, performs the better of the 2 and returns better MPG figures as well. What favors the Volvo however is the massive price difference of $4,000 that manages to justify Volvo's thrifty and frugal build quality.

2020 Volvo V60

Audi A4 Allroad vs Jaguar XF Sportbrake

The Jaguar XF is the sportier and better loaded vehicle among the 2 wagons here. The Jag beats the Audi hands down in performance and braking and offers a slightly better seating comfort and space on the inside. But with a price difference of over $10,000, it's really difficult to suggest the jag over the Audi. If you were looking for a performance wagon that is practical, we would suggest the jaguar but for 90% of the cases, it's the Audi that we would ahve our bets on.

2020 Audi A4 allroad Wagon Final Verdict

Despite a reduction in engine power, the A4 Allroad still manages to beat its rivals in terms of real-world performance and benefits with its increased MPG figures. If a stylish, Urban Wagon is what you are after that offers both performance and practicality but doesn't skip on luxury, then there is no beating the 2020 Audi A4 Allroad for that matter.
