2020 Audi A4 Allroad 40 TDI engine

As of 2020, the facelift car is available with two engines. The 45 TFSI petrol engine – a 245hp turbo that should be capable of around 40mpg as well. Official combined figures are 34.9-35.3mpg (on the WLTP 'real world' test and 185-181g/km of CO2 emissions. These are slightly higher thanthe regular A4 Avant, but a perfectly acceptable performance for a car with this amount of power.

The 40 TDI 190hp turbodiesel model complements this model by putting in a combined mpg figure of 43.5-44.1mpg (WLTP Combined) and 171-168g/km of CO2 emissions.

Before its 2019 facelift, the A4 Allroad came with a choice of petrol and diesel engines – both with 190hp. There was also a 3.0-litre V6 TDI available – and all had reasonable running costs capable of around 40mpg or more.

Is it reliable?

  • Everything looks and feels like it’ll last
  • Engines and transmissions see service elsewhere
  • New infotainment seems to work well

2020 Audi A4 Allroad badge

The Allroad features engines and gearboxes that can be found in several other Audi models, where there have been few significant issues so far. Plus, the overall feel of the latest A4 range is one of solidity and high quality, which should allay any fears you have of interior rattles and squeaks becoming known.

We’ve previously experienced some issues with the firm’s Virtual Cockpit system, but this was on earlier models, and the A4 features the latest, updated system, so any software or technical issues should have been ironed out. If you do have any problems, all A4 Allroads come with a three-year, 60,000-mile warranty.
