Parkers overall rating: 4 out of 5 4.0

The slightly raised ride height is unnoticeable from the driver’s seat. In fact, from behind the wheel, you may as well be in any Audi Avant. That’s good new, as it’s a great interior: comfortable, well designed and attractive. The driver’s seat is multi-adjustable, as is the steering wheel – that means most drivers should be able to find a driving position that suits them.

A number of functions – such as the air conditioning, stereo and sat nav – are controlled by a single dial. First-time users will find that it takes some getting used to, but it soon becomes an easy way to access these features on the move. All-round visibility is good and there’s even the option of a ‘blind spot warning system’.

Audi A4 Allroad comfort levels are pretty decent, even though the ride quality is a little firm. Two adults can comfortably sit in the back, or alternatively, it can easily accommodate three children. There’s good leg, head and shoulder room, while on the move, engine noise is only noticeable under heavy acceleration. The three-zone climate control does a good job of cooling the interior, while buyers who opt for heated seats will find that they are exceptionally effective.
