ReviewI thought you may be interested from a UK review. This is my 13th Audi and our 2nd allroad. It is a 2.5 turbodiesel which is the most populat model over here. A tank of fuel produces 515 miles on the cruise. Petrol is too expensive here; US $10.41 per gallon. The turbo lag can be overcome by depressing accelerator a cm or so which gives it time to start spooling up. Allroads are superb vehicles and worth the slight premium over the Volvo.In the UK the A6 and Volvo are the biggest estate cars and more user friendly than pure SUVs. Built better than a BMW, more space than BMW and other drivers admire you but would never let a BMW out at a junction.
Best FeaturesAuto height adjust when speed increases so get opt mpg. SAT NAV excellent, Bose excellent, power fold mirrors excellent. But by far are allround heated alcantara seats for winter. Mpg for size and weight are very good c/f X5, Range Rover, XC90. The rearseat space is very good. We're a a bit smaller over here
Worst FeaturesAll A6 estates (shooting brakes?) suffer wind noise from roof rails. Problem resolved on new model. That really is it. We love our allroad and will probably get another one. Give them oil and tlc and they don't let down.
