Audi A4 Allroad: How big is the boot?

The Audi A4 Allroad has an above average boot space (498 litres of luggage with the seats up).

This would allow one pushchair and 3 large bags. Alternatively you could load up with 4 large bags or 4 cabin bags instead.

Worth knowing, the Volvo V60 estate is the best in class, allowing for one pushchair and 3 large bags with its 564 litres.

Is the Audi A4 Allroad easy to park?

The Audi A4 Allroad is very middle of the road - it fills just over three quarters of a space. There are lots of wider cars, but just as many that are narrower and feel easier to park. For example, the BMW 1 Series.

When it comes to parking on the street, the A4 Allroad is one of the hardest. It has a turning circle of 11m, and a length of 4730m, giving you a relatively small 70mm gap to turn the car in and out.

If you don’t have a drive, you should look at the best in class for parallel parking instead, the BMW 1 Series.

Which Audi A4 Allroad has the best performance?

The fastest Audi A4 Allroad from 0-60, is the 3.0L diesel (if you’re a petrol head, it has 600 lbs/ft torque and 272 bhp). It hits 60 mph in 5.5 seconds.

The closest rival in its class is the BMW 3 Series 3.0L petrol, which will beat your Audi A4 Allroad to 60 by 0.1 seconds. That’s a big gap in Formula 1, but not something you would notice in your commute to work.

What size caravan or trailer, can the Audi A4 Allroad tow?

If you are towing you want good torque to pull away easily despite the extra weight, and the car needs to be at least 15% heavier than the caravan to keep you stable at speed.

The model that can tow the biggest caravan or heaviest trailer is the Audi A4 Allroad 3.0L diesel which has 580 lbs/ft torque. It should be able to tow a braked caravan or trailer that weighs up to 2100kg comfortably.

You must check your car handbook – maximum towing weights vary considerably with different engine and gearbox combinations.
