By far the priciest entry on this list, the Audi allroad wagon combines Audi's penchant for great interiors, enthusiastic engines and sharp styling with all the utility and features a dedicated, luxury-minded tailgate party host requires.
Seating five, there is nearly 28 cubic feet of cargo space with the second seat in place and more than 50 cubic feet with the back seat folded. A 12-volt power outlet is located in the cargo area.
All-wheel drive is standard. A 211-horsepower, 2-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder engine teams with an eight-speed, driver-shiftable automatic transmission to turn the wheels.
There are more affordable models, but with the Prestige comes a 14-speaker surround-sound audio system. It also includes a navigation system, power liftgate, back-up camera, rear parking sensors, Bluetooth connectivity, iPod interface and satellite radio.
