Though by no means a performance vehicle, the 2023 Audi A4 allroad can be quick when it needs to be. This is thanks to its turbocharged four-cylinder engine and sedan-like underpinnings. With 261 hp and 273 lb-ft from under the hood, it can accelerate from 0-60 mph in a brisk 5.5 seconds, though the top speed is electronically limited to 130 mph. The engine responds quickly to throttle inputs, and the mild-hybrid system helps to prioritize efficiency. Despite being a sturdy wagon with a decent powertrain, the A4 allroad is not rated for towing.
There is only one engine available across the range - a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-pot that is supplemented by a 12-volt mild-hybrid system. Outputs are 261 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. This is managed by a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and sent to the quattro all-wheel drivetrain.
The gearbox is one of the highlights of this car. It is highly refined and shifts smoothly between gears without missing a beat. Driving around town is effortless with the quick acceleration, and once you reach cruising speeds on the highway, it never feels underpowered when it comes time to pass slower cars.

Wagons are not known for their superior gas mileage, and the Audi A4 allroad is no different. The turbocharged engine with mild-hybrid assistance returns 23/30/26 mpg across the city/highway/combined cycles. With a 15.3-gallon fuel tank, this means the wagon can travel for a respectable 400 miles or so between gas station stops.

Every trim within the A4 range uses the same engine and weighs about the same, therefore there is no difference in expected gas mileage between them.
Luxury vehicles are Audi's bread and butter, so it's to be expected that they all run on premium gasoline.
