The Ultimate Build: 30 Days Of The 2013 Audi Allroad

June 19, 2013

We're now in the second half of our 30 days with the 2013 Audi Allroad, and we've covered a lot of ground already--we've taken the Allroad off-road, connected to the Internet while on the go, performed a gas-mileage run and worked out the cost of ownership.

But what about the ultimate version? What does a fully optioned Allroad cost, and what's included?

While our 2013 Audi Allroad is a mid-trim Premium Plus model, for this exercise you would start with an Allroad with the Prestige Package priced from $48,880. For those keeping score, that's $9,200 more than a base Allroad. For that extra cash, your Allroad would include adaptive xenon headlights with LED daytime running lights, Audi MMI navigation plus with voice control, Audi Connect with a six-month trail subscription, a Bang & Olufsen sound system, Audi's advanced key system with keyless start, and Audi side assist.

Moving on to the exterior, a metallic paint color would add quite a bit to the sticker price. In this scenario, we would choose Glacier White metallic paint for an extra $1,000. If you wanted to defeat the purpose of the Allroad, you could change its personality by opting to paint the plastic cladding for $1,000, but this would limit your paint color options.

To give the ultimate Allroad a different stance, we would upgrade from the standard 18-inch five-arm rotor wheels to the 19-inch five-arm structure wheels with summer tires for $800.

Inside, we would upgrade the standard aluminum trim to layered oak wood inlays for $850. Keeping the kiddos cool in the summer would be the manual rear-side window shades for $250, and keeping them extra safe would be the $350 rear-passenger thorax side airbags.

Kicking our our Allroad's technology up a notch would be the $3,250 Driver Assist package with Audi's adaptive cruise control with stop and go, dynamic steering, and Audi drive select.

So configured, an Allroad would sport a price tag of $55,775. That's not cheap, especially if you've taken a look at how fast the Allroad depreciates. But it is a very nice family hauler for those snowy weekends on the mountain, or those summer hiking trips.
