What Is the 2016 Audi Allroad?

The 2016 Audi Allroad is a five-seat wagon that competes against the Volvo V60 Cross Country. It's offered in one trim level, 2.0T Premium. All-wheel drive comes standard. 

What's New on the 2016 Audi Allroad?

Newly standard for 2016 is a three-spoke, leather-wrapped steering wheel. The Navigation Plus Package includes the Audi Connect information system and a smart key. Audi Allroad Premium Plus models with the Technology Package feature a Bang & Olufsen sound system.

How Does the 2016 Audi Allroad Compare to Other Wagons?

The 2016 Audi Allroad isn't the most affordable in its class, but it may make a good stepping stone for Audi sedan owners who want more space. Families on a budget might be better served by a Subaru Outback or similar vehicle, while those wanting simpler design and advanced safety features are more likely to find those things in a V60 or XC70.

What Features in the 2016 Audi Allroad Are Most Important?

The 2016 Audi Allroad comes with a 220-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, an eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive. Xenon high-intensity-discharge headlights with LED daytime running lights, a panoramic moonroof and a power liftgate are also included. The seats are upholstered in leather. As is required in all new vehicles of this model year, front airbags, antilock brakes and an electronic stability system are standard.

Significant available features include a backup camera, a blind spot warning system, wood interior trim, heated front seats, a navigation system with Audi Connect and Wi-Fi, and a Bang & Olufsen premium stereo.

Should I Buy the 2016 Audi Allroad?

If you need more cargo space and slightly more ground clearance than you have on your Audi sedan, the 2016 Audi Allroad is a fun-to-drive option. The cabin is crafted from upscale materials, and the available navigation system uses attractively styled maps. Despite being a wagon, though, its cargo room and backseat legroom aren't overly generous, and its high starting price won't impress families on a budget.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
