The new Audi A6 allroad will be available in Sport specification or Vorsprung model, both of which feature a striking offroad look. A wide, low singleframe grille features on the front while accents like the allroad-specific roof rails and underbody protection emphasise the cars rugged capabilities.
The Audi A6 allroad quattro body is up to 45mm higher than the A6 Avant with a ground clearance of 139mm as standard. This clearance is then actively adjustedc depending on the speed and mode set in the Audi drive select system. If the highest ride height is selected the body is raised 45mm at speeds up to 22mph and lowered when this speed is exceeded. At speeds of above 74mph ride height is lowered by 15mm.
The Audi A6 allroad has high torque for pulling power and will be available with a choice of two V6 TDI engines, both of which incorporate Audi's mild hybrid technology which makes driving smooth and reduce fuel consumption by up to 0.4 litres per 100km.
The A6 allroad 45 TDI produces 286PS with 500Nm of torque which allows it to sprint from 0 to 62mph in 6.7 seconds. In the A6 allroad 50 TDI this is increased to 286PS and 620Nm of torque which allows it to reach 62mph in 5.9 seconds. The power of the TDI engines is transferred to the centre differential-based quattro all-wheel-drive system via an eight-speed tiptronic transmission.
Interior and technology
As expected, the A6 allroad offers great luggage capacity of between 565 litres and 1,680 litres with the rear seats folded down. It contains the same extensive technology as found in the A6 and A7 models. The all-digital operating system has a large top screen to control infotainment and a screen below that operate climate control, comfort function and text input.
