I just got this vehicle about a month ago and had the privilege of driving it on the twisty mountain roads. It is fast, has a lot of low end torque at 1500rpm and climbs steep mountain road with no problem at all. The new allroad is faster than the 1st generation 2003-2005 V6 allroad and about as fast as the old V8 allroad. The test shows 6.3 - 6.5 seconds 0 - 60 for the 2013 allroad - you can also chip it (using an APR or Statis ECU chip) and should hit 5.5 seconds or about the same speed as the old S4 Avant. The old V6 allroad was around 7.3 - 7.5 seconds 0 - 60, while the old V8 allroad was around 6.3 - 6.4 seconds 0 - 60.
Surprisingly, even with a higher ground clearance, the new allroad handles pretty well on curves (and other reviews have confirm the handling). This is due to the longer wheelbase and also wider track (as it adopts the width of the A5/S5). So even without the air suspension, this allroad drives better than the old allroad. I also owned the old 2004 allroad, which I did not keep because if the air suspension becomes defective, you'll spend $6000 - $8000 for it out-of-warranty. I actually prefer a fixed suspension, because moving parts have higher chance of becoming defective over time. I know that allroad enthusiasts like the adjustable suspension, but out-of-warranty maintenance/ replacement can be very expensive.
In terms of MPG, I was able to easily get around 30-31 MPG for straight highway driving. Combined with steep twisty mountain driving, some city driving and highway driving, I was about to get 27.5 MPG (actual MPG calculated manually and not via computer reading). I was only getting 20 - 21 MPG on the highway on my old 2004 allroad, and it was even slower that this one.
Overall, I like this new allroad. However, even thought this new allroad rides much better and drives better than the 2004 allroad, the ride of my 2006 A6 Avant is still slightly better and more luxurious. While I wish Audi will bring the new A6 Avant or A6 Allroad, I'm not sure I could afford a $68,000 - $70,000 wagon. The A6 already cost $63,000 - $65,000. I got my A4 allroad under $39,000 with dealer's discount, and it was very slightly used (4000 miles) but really feels brand new in every way.
The front seating is luxurious and spacious. I have the sports seat which holds you pretty well, and I also have sports steering wheel with paddle shifters. The rear headroom of the allroad is even slightly higher than the rear headroom of the Audi A7 which slopes downward, and the legroom is pretty decent. So, it sits adults with no problem as long as you're not over 5'10".
The navigation uses Google Maps and you can even see a picture of your own house with Google. Audi connect allows you to check for weather and gas prices in real-time. Plus you can use your allroad's WiFi Internet connection to connect your laptop and iPad while you are on the road....read morehide

- Great Fuel Economy, plush ride, and love Quattro
- Ignition Key System is a little tricky, but not bad once you get the hang of it

I've had a new 2013 Audi allroad for a couple of weeks, one of the first to arrive at the dealership, Prestige Porsche - Audi, Denver. The salesman Derrick was super, being helpful and responsive and super nice in a sincere way. I love the car, and excited about owning it. Its spendy, but its one I can live with for a long time and get my money's worth. I did have follow up questions and the service department was super great and helpful. They are awesome and go out their way for the customer and would have not trouble getting another car there some day. The gas mileage is awesome, the handling and comfort really superior, and quiet. For new Audi owners, the ignition is a bit tricky but here it is. You stick the key (aka computer fob) in the ignition and you press on it and start the engine, (foot on brake). When you turn it off, you push the fob in and the engine stops, then breathe deeply, take off your safety belt, then remove the fob. The car needs to release the fob before you take it out. If you yank it out you risk damaging the ignition and it gives you a warning light. It was quickly reset, and I did not damage it, but it was something to learn about it. Other than that this car is wonderful and I love it!...read morehide
