It’s a good time to be a fan of a wagon. The long roof style is in the middle of an unexpected resurgence, and while some cars need to gain a few inches away from the wheel to attract the insatiable appetite of crossed Americans, our car choices are pretty good these days. For an example, just look at the 2017 Audi A4 Allroad.
2017 Audi A4 Allroad Design
The Audi A4 Allroad seems a little silly. It is a little more than an inch higher than the classic A4 sedan thanks to a combination of a higher suspension and larger tires, ostensibly to give it better ground clearance for off-road obstacles. But it is the wing flares in matt black plastic that are the strangest bits. They combine with similar trim on the front and rear bumpers in an attempt to give the Allroad a more sturdy, more robust look. But the wing of the rear fender does not work well with the cutting lines of the rear door, so the trim itself is in two pieces.
The A4 itself is beautiful, so traditionally Audi. With a large front shielding grid, LED lamps and smooth lines to the horizontal taillights, this is a minor update on the Audi style themes of the past 20 years. It is attractive overall but the added Allroad intended to make it more robust do not really work. Fortunately, they are not moved in this class; The Volvo V60 Cross Country and Subaru Outback both have the same treatment.

As entertaining and useful as electronic gadgets, it would be unfortunate if they distracted from the actual driving experience. The A4 Allroad is lighter than its predecessor and is the first Audi equipped with a new four-wheel drive system on request that Audi has named “Quattro with Ultra technology.” The Quattro Ultra configuration provided by Magna is absolutely undetectable in All while allowing fuel savings of 5 to 10% compared to the old system.
