Audi A4 Allroad quattro estate (2009-2015) - Interior & comfort
The Audi A4 Allroad has a superb interior and offers excellent long-distance comfort
If a spacious cabin and a high-quality interior that’s beautifully finished are your idea of comfort, then you should be very happy in the Audi A4 Allroad. It’s certainly better than the Volvo XC70 in terms of comfort and the quality is vastly superior to that of the Subaru Outback.

The interior keeps out most wind, road and engine noise, with only some rumbling audible when you accelerate hard. And that sets the scene for the rest of the car, which features some of the best quality materials in the business. They’re fitted with care and attention, too, cementing Audi’s position as the benchmark for interior quality.
You get multi-adjustable seats that give lots of support on long-distance drives, while adults can sit comfortably in the back thanks to good leg, shoulder and headroom.
The A4 Allroad is available in two trim levels, called Standard and Sport. Standard specification gets you plenty of equipment, including 18-inch alloy wheels, DAB digital radio, Bluetooth connectivity, split-folding rear seats, three-zone climate control, a storage pack, cruise control, rear parking sensors, front and rear foglights and roof rails.
Going for the Sport trim level gets you extras like 19-inch alloy wheels, leather and Alcantara sports seats, bright xenon headlights with LED daytime running lights, plus tinted rear windows. It’s a pricey choice, though, costing around £2,500 more than the standard car.
The options available for the A4 Allroad are similar to those for the standard Audi A4 Avant. That means there's a wide range of interior trims, which can cost more than £4,000, although cheaper options are available.
Other options include power-operated front seats with position memory and a range of different dashboard trims. We recommend spending £1,700 on the Technology Package, which gives you sat-nav, two SD card readers, the ability to connect up to four audio sources, plus front and rear parking sensors. An additional £600 upgrades this to the Advanced pack, which adds emergency braking, adaptive cruise control and a lane-keeping aid.
