Overall Rating


With the new 2020 MY, Audi has decided to slash the price of the Premium trim by $1100 and of the Premium Plus trim by $2900, while still retaining everything that 2019 MY offered. This makes the 2020 Audi A4 Allroad tremendous value-for-money and an ultimate bargain in this segment. It rivals the likes of the Volvo V60 Wagon, Mercedes E Class Wagon, and Jaguar XF Sportbrake Prestige Wagon.

Which Trim should you buy?

We recommend the Premium Plus trim because it provides the maximum value for money. It has all the comfort creatures and features which one needs, but if you want that bragging right in front of your friends, then the Prestige trim is the one to go for. You can also go for the optional Warm Weather package that adds ventilated sports seats and other useful features.

2020 Audi A4 allroad Wagon Engine and Performance

7.5/10

The 2020 Audi A4 Allroad Wagon gets a 2.0 L Inline 4 TFSI motor as standard on all the trims. The motor churns out an impressive 248 horses and 273 lb-ft. of torque. The engine is a great performer and propels the A4 Allroad to 60 mph in an astonishing 5.9 seconds. The engine response is instantaneous and electrifying. The engine is fairly refined and there are minimal vibrations even at higher RPMs. 

2020 Audi A4 Allroad Engine

The engine is mated to a 7-speed S-Tronic Dual Clutch automatic transmission. The transmission is among the best in the segment if not the best and gives a joyful driving experience. The shifts occur in nanoseconds and it is also precise. The Audi A4 Allroad’s party trick is the magical Quattro All-wheel drive system. The system is pure witchcraft and will definitely pull the car out of any tricky low traction situations.

The Mercedes and the Jaguar are the fastest accelerating cars in this segment with 0-60 coming up in 5.1 and 5.7 seconds respectively. But they are a good $20,000 more expensive than the Audi A4 Allroad. The Audi does it in an impressive 5.9 seconds, while the Volvo V60 takes the longest time of 6.4 seconds. The Audi on the other hand takes 14.3 seconds to cover the quarter-mile. The Audi offers the most bang for your buck and is the best choice.

How well does the 2020 Audi A4 Allroad handle?

The 2020 Audi A4 Allroad handles like a dream. The car stays composed on the highway at triple-digit speeds. It also handles corners pretty well. The body roll is negligible which allows aggressive cornering. The Quattro all-wheel-drive witchcraft makes the A4 an absolute dream come true in the handling department. The Quattro system helps it get good traction on the road irrespective of the road conditions.

2020 Audi A4 Allroad Handling

The steering feedback is decent and the ride quality is plush and comfortable. The suspension is tuned to devour potholes and to glide over road undulations. At the same time, it is not too soft and inspires confidence during high-speed cornering. The lower ground clearance is good for tackling corners but it is not so helpful when the road ends.

2020 Audi A4 Allroad Braking Performance

The 2020 Audi A4 Allroad Wagon comes with 13-inch disc brakes on all four wheels. The brakes have tremendous amounts of a bite along with great progression, which stops the heavy beast in a fairly short distance. Even after hours of aggressive use on the track, the brakes don’t feel spongy and there is minimal brake fade.

2020 Audi A4 Allroad Wheel

The car remains supremely stable and poised even on panic braking. The ABS system is fine-tuned to perfection and doesn’t intrude except when absolutely necessary.

The Merc is the heaviest car here, but it stops surprisingly at the shortest distance. Its stopping distance of fewer than 110 feet for a car that weighs more than 4300 pounds is genuinely mind-boggling. The Audi is the lightest but takes considerably more distance to stop than the Merc. The Volvo V60 Wagon takes the highest distance to come to a halt from 60 mph at 126 feet. 

2020 Audi A4 allroad Wagon Fuel Economy

6.0/10

The 2.0 Liter TFSI motor on the A4 Allroad returns pretty decent fuel efficiency. The engine delivers the best fuel economy figures amongst the competitors in city driving conditions. The Audi A4 Allroad manages to return 23 miles per gallon in the city, 31 mpg on the highway, and 26 miles per gallon of combined fuel economy. The A4 Allroad gets a 15.3-gallon fuel tank which gives it a range of 352 miles in the city and 474 miles on the highway.

The Volvo and the Audi go toe to toe in the terms of fuel economy. The Merc and the Jaguar are not so green in this respect, because they have bigger and more powerful engines with heart-wrenching acceleration figures. Moreover, the E 450 wagon comes with a large fuel tank which puts its driving range close to 550 miles on the highway.

2020 Audi A4 allroad Wagon Interior

9.0/10

The 2020 Audi A4 Allroad comes with lavish interiors. The materials used are premium and exotic. There are lots of soft-touch materials covered all over the dashboard and the door panels. Premium wooden inlays and plush leather upholstery make the 2020 Audi A4 Allroad feel plush. The vehicle also gets power-adjustable front seating along with a heating function. It can comfortably accommodate a family of 5 with loads of space on offer.

2020 Audi A4 Allroad Rear Seat

The steering comes with both tilt and telescopic adjustment functions and there is three-zone automatic climate control on offer. The rear seats will be able to accommodate even three medium-sized individuals comfortably. And the rear seat knee room on offer is also enormous. Headroom and knee-room are decent for both the front and rear seats, and even 6 footers will find loads of space to play around. Moreover, the massive panoramic sunroof is spectacular and will leave the occupants in awe.

The Jaguar XF Sportbrake wagon has the longest wheelbase amongst the competition and is also the longest. The Audi has the shortest wheelbase, which resonates in its fun-to-drive character and agile handling.

2020 Audi A4 allroad Wagon Competition

8.0/10

2020 Audi A4 Allroad vs 2020 Volvo V60 Momentum Wagon

In this German vs Swedish battle, the Audi is the better choice because it comes with the legendary Quattro All-Wheel Drive System as standard, whereas the Volvo comes with Front Wheel Drive in the base trim. The Audi is also a clear winner in the interior department with a more luxurious and premium upholstery and futuristic infotainment system and instrument cluster.

2020 Audi A4 Allroad vs 2020 Mercedes E Class E450 4Matic Wagon

The Mercedes-Benz packs in a lot more firepower than the A4 Allroad. The Merc also has the capacity to carry two more passengers and comes with a cavernous trunk. But all this comes at a premium and is $20,000 more expensive than the A4 Allroad. But, the ground clearance of the Merc is appalling and is absolutely not suitable if you plan to take the vehicle off the beaten track. The Audi offers more value for money.

2020 Audi A4 Allroad vs 2020 Jaguar XF Sportbrake Prestige Wagon

This contender from Britain has all that it takes to beat the German. It even produces more power and torque than the Audi. The Jaguar also gets the legendary 8-speed ZF transmission that does duty in many of the Jags and Bimmers. But the Jag is let down by its price which is a hefty $20,000 more expensive than the Audi. So, the Jaguar makes sense only for black cat lovers, whereas the Audi is for the others who want the maximum bang for their buck.

2020 Audi A4 allroad Wagon Final Verdict

The new Audi A4 Allroad Wagon makes a lot more sense than the others. It comes at a lucrative price point which makes it a bargain and incredible value for money. It gets a futuristic and sporty dashboard and a sci-fi-looking digital instrument cluster, a sophisticated infotainment system, premium luxurious interiors, and electrifying driving dynamics. All these earn the Audi A4 Allroad our number one recommendation in this category.
