Should I buy the Audi A4 Allroad in standard or sport?

I'm about to buy an Audi A4 Allroad 2.0 190 TDI S tronic and can't decide between standard and sport. I am concerned about the negative impact 18-inch wheels might have over comfort compared with 17-inch wheels on standard. Will there be a noticeable difference?

You are right to be concerned. Get it on 17-inch wheels for which you will be able to get a much better choice of all weather tyres such as Michelin Cross Climate. Completely nuts to buy an "allroad" car on low profile tyres. Like going on a cross-country hike in ballet pumps.

More ground clearance than previous A4 Allroad. Incredibly comfortable and quiet. New quattro system allows full front-wheel drive to save fuel.
