Audi A4 Allroad Receives High Car Seat Scores



Combining off-road performance with functionality to produce a family-friendly vehicle, it was only a matter of time until cars.com got their hands on a 2017 Audi A4 Allroad for car seat testing. The five-seat wagon is scrutinized by a panel of editors who are also certified child safety seat installation technicians.

Five different seat types are tested; latch, infant, rear-facing convertible, forward-facing convertible and booster. Depending on how each seat fits and the amount of space the child has, a grade is given with ‘A’ as the highest score a seat can get.

To achieve that, the vehicle must have ample room for both the car seat and the child without impacting the driver or front-passenger’s legroom. Latch points must be easy to find and connected to with no fitment issues. The Audi A4 Allroad performed very well and received an ‘A’ with every seat type except for the infant seat, that one was given a ‘B’ because of one fit or connection issue.

Other than that, Audi’s latest wagon garnered plenty of praise from all three judges with how easy it was to install and anchor both the rear- and forward-facing convertible seat, without needing to move the front passenger seat forward.

And who says they need a mini-van when they upsize their family?

This is some great news, I don't have kids at the moment but at least I know Audi is on point with their safety standards for child seats and kids without sacrificing the comfort of the front two occupants.

Who says? Its the little voice in everyones head that says they're not man enough or women enough or cool enough driving one of these and instead need something classified as an SUV. Just look at the GLA and Q3, those aren't much different than some of the Wagons out here but they sell in amazing numbers

Yup.. Some people just feel like they've gotten "old" and need to fall into that stereo type and drive a "soccer mom van"

I don't believe in that stuff one bit. If it's practical for you and you're family, an S7 works out to be a great family vehicle too. Spacious, trunk space, and fast

At the same time its sort of understandable since when shopping higher up on a level where you have more options its easy to find yourself playing into the whole image thing, I see it happening way too often. At the end of the days its what you actually need more than anything.

That's it... It's always the best to do your research as well and you'll soon find out you don't need to settle for certain boring vehicles. There are a lot of options out there for everyone and their needs.
