Comparing the Subaru Outback to the Audi A4 Allroad in Bellevue, WA

Shoppers will find the new Subaru Outback available for sale or lease here at Michael's Subaru of Bellevue. The Outback is a great choice among crossover wagons and a depended-on SUV for outdoor adventures. Whether you're taking to the trails on Mercer Island or heading to your nearest drive-in theater, the Subaru Outback is a great companion to have on any adventure. The Audi A4 Allroad shares a similar build and classification as a crossover wagon. However, as you will see, this luxury wagon lacks a lot of the Outback's versatility. Let us break down all the ways these two crossovers compare for your convenience.

You will find the new Subaru Outback here at Michael's Subaru of Bellevue. Our dealership is located on SE Eastgate Way, less than 15 minutes outside of Issaquah, WA and near Seattle as well.

Price & Warranty

As a luxury wagon, the Audi A4 Allroad starts out at a pretty steep price, well above $40,000, whereas the Outback begins well under $30,000 and its highest trim level does not fully break the $40,000 range. Making necessary repairs for the engine will also be easier in the long-term, thanks to a standard 60-month/60,000-mile Powertrain Limited Warranty provided by Subaru USA. The Audi A4 Allroad comes backed by a similar powertrain warranty that cuts off at 48 months or 50,000 miles, whichever comes first.

Comparing Features

The Outback comes loaded with a variety of standard and available features that you will not find standard on many other brands, including Audi. The standard roof rails of the Outback include crossbars to turn the roof into a full-functional roof rack that can hold 150 lbs. worth of equipment. With the Audi A4 Allroad, a roof rack must be purchased as an accessory. The Outback also includes an available windshield wiper de-icer, as part of the All-Weather Package, which helps get your crossover prepared for the freezing rain in Sammamish. Despite the A4 Allroad being a luxury SUV, it does not come available with a wiper de-icer feature.

Performance & Fuel Economy

While both of these crossovers include standard all-wheel-drive systems, the Outback has more available features to help take on any weather, including a standard audio limited-slip differential and X-MODE to help engage the Symmetrical All-Wheel-Drive. The Audi A4 Allroad does not include similar features for its quattro all-wheel-drive.

The Subaru Outback also offers more fuel economy with its standard engine, traveling an EPA-estimated 26 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway, with a fuel capacity of 18.5 gallons. The Audi A4 Allroad travels up to 23 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway, with a fuel capacity of 15.3 gallons.


Despite being classified as a crossover wagon, the Subaru Outback is closer to an SUV with its interior and wheelbase. The inside of the Outback contains over 109 cubic feet of passenger volume, over the 105.6 cubic feet of the A4 Allroad. This difference provides more headroom in the Outback for all passengers, with considerably more leg and shoulder room than the A4 Allroad luxury wagon.
