2013 Audi AllroadEnlarge Photo
As we spend our month with the 2013 Audi Allroad, we've tried to think like an Allroad owners, act like an Allroad owners, and really get into how people would use the Allroad in their daily lives. From hauling cargo to taking the Allroad off the beaten path, we've done it all. Many Allroad owners live active lifestyles, which means they'll need to buy some accessories for their all-weather chariot.
Some accessories for the Allroad are quite useful, from snowboard and ski racks to bike mounts and cargo carriers. But there are some accessories that seem a bit frivolous, and frankly overpriced. We browsed through Audi's accessory catalog online to find some of the best, and worst, Allroad accessories.
Some of the best accessories-
Converting the roof bar system to a lockable ski holder will cost $165, and it holds four pairs of skis or two snowboards.
If you're a surfer or own your own kayak, you'll only need $176 for the surfboard or kayak holder for your roof rack. Note: That's not an Allroad in this image.
Most of the attachments require the $440 base carrier bars, a must for those who want to fully utilize their Allroad's roof rack system. Note: The carrier bar are the cross members shown in this image.
Taking a long road trip? The $1,019 compact cargo carrier will increase your cargo carrying capability in case someone in your house hold tends to overpack.
You can strap that extra luggage onto the roof in an aluminum roof basket for $776.
If you need to take your bike with you, the aluminum bike rack will run you $200.
