If you want the capability and utility of an SUV without sacrificing the zest of a sport sedan, the 2018 Audi A4 Allroad occupies such a niche. Based on the A4 Avant we don’t get in the U.S., this wagon adds a bit of height, while offering impressive performance from a turbocharged inline-four. But on top of that sporty ride, this wagon can also haul and venture off-road.

Thanks to adaptive damping suspension and Drive Select with an off-road mode, the A4 All-road is at home in moderate trail scenarios. With quattro with ultra all-wheel drive, you not only get prime wet weather grip, but 30 mpg highway gas mileage thanks to a disconnecting rear axle. The mid-level Premium Plus model gets a standard hands-free tailgate, and up to 58.5 cu-ft of maximum cargo volume, while all models get complementary leather upholstery, Audi MMI, and the pre-sense city and basic packages. Higher trims net Virtual Cockpit, a Bang & Olufsen sound system, and more.

Whether the abilities of the A4 Allroad bring you joy or peace of mind, you’re doing it right any way you shake it. To experience it from behind that leather-wrapped steering wheel, schedule a test drive with our Audi dealership in Fairfield, CT. A sales rep can answer any questions about features and options.
