2003 Audi Allroad Quattro Overview
Overall User Score
Based on 6 reviews
A luxury station wagon seems to be an oxymoron, but that's just what the 2003 Audi allroad quattro claims to deliver. The styling is so understated and unassuming, that Audi won't even use capital letters for their high performance family wagon.
The 2003 allroad features a 2.7-liter, 250-hp turbo V6 engine paired with a standard 6-speed manual transmission. A 5-speed Tiptronic clutchless auto/manual transmission is optional. Midyear in 2003 comes the extra power drivers were hoping for, in the form of a 4.2-liter, 300-hp V8. Finally, this heavier A6 gets a bit more kick. As with all Audis, ABS brakes, traction control, electronic stability, and numerous airbags are standard. A parking assist system, which warns of obstacles while backing up, is a new option in 2003. The rear-facing seat option has been discontinued.
The allroad quattro is more than just an all-wheel drive wagon with SUV aspirations. It adds a variable suspension for more confident footing and maneuverability in any road condition. Though it does not have as much cargo room as an SUV, it is adequate for family needs, with fold-down seats to expand capacity. And one thing that the allroad offers that SUVs don't is the incredibly roominess and luxury features inside, such as leather upholstery, heated front and rear seats, sunroof, power adjustable seats, steering wheel controls, and memory settings. It's these well-thought out accessories that make owners fall in love with their 2003 allroad quattros. The precise handling and energetic engine add zest and the TT-inspired styling adds a bit of flair to this family hauler. Low points include an annoying turbo lag, poor gas mileage, and shoddy service from unhelpful dealers. Another complaint is the tendency for mud and dirt to collect under the huge wheel wells, interfering with performance.
