The 2013 Audi AllRoad is completely re-engineered with a bolder and sportier character. Lauren Fix, the Car Coach, takes a closer look.

Model – 2012 Audi AllRoad
MPG – 20 city/ 27 hwy mpg.
Engine – 2.0L Turbocharged 4-cylinder with 211 hp.
Price – starts at $39,600

The Audi AllRoad’s new look features a unique single frame grille design with vertical chrome struts, stainless steel skid plates and side sills, and raised aluminum-optic roof rails.

My test drive the 2013 Audi AllRoad through the scenic mountains of Colorado, proved its tight handling throughout switch back roads. The front wheel drive torque vectoring system offered better car control in corners than others in the class. The ride was pleasant and the performance was quite responsive, all while still earning impressive fuel economy. We also noted how quiet the interior was during our very comfortable ride.
The adaptive cruise control with city braking up to 19 mph was an impressive safety feature. It can bring the car to a complete stop, but also slows the car down if you get too close to other drivers.

Audi connect paired with Google Earth with street view made it easier to see the elevation changes in the road ahead and also offered weather, local gas prices, news feeds, and stock reports. There hasn’t been a new Audi AllRoad since 2005 and loyal owners have been waiting for this updated model to arrive.

Competes with:
•BMW 535ix
•Mercedes E350 4-Matic
•Jaguar XF
•Lexus GS460
•Infiniti M
•Acura RL

•High-quality interior surfaces
•Light-duty off-road ability
•Comfortable ride
•Generous cargo capacity
•Tons of safety and technology features

•Audi connect is T-Mobile only
•Can connect up to only 8 mobile devices

The 2013 Audi AllRoad is a great mix of a sedan and SUV with the technology, beautiful design and comforts you want.
