The new Audi A6 allroad has landed in Australia, with a new engine on board, freshened up styling, and more technology than ever.
Based on the A6 Avant wagon, the A6 allroad rides on a slightly raised platform to provide some off-road ability. In fact, it comes with adjustable air suspension as standard which can lower the ride height by 15mm or raise by 35mm at the touch of a button. The allroad also gets a unique body with two-tone bumper bars and extended wheel arches for that robust look.
Under the bonnet sits a 3.0-litre TDI turbo-diesel V6 that produces 160kW of power and a strong 500Nm of torque. It’s able to cover 0-100km/h in 7.3 seconds, while offering an average fuel consumption of just 5.6L/100km.
Matched up to the engine is a seven-speed S tronic automatic transmission, feeding power into a quattro all-wheel drive system. Torque is split 60 per cent to the rear axle in normal conditions, but it can send up to 70 per cent to the front or 85 per cent to the rear if the demand requires.
Some of the standard features include an advanced MMI interface with satellite navigation, an on-board 10GB hard drive connected to a 10-speaker stereo, DAB digital radio, an electric tailgate, and a rear-view camera. Buyers can option for the Technik pack which includes adaptive cruise control, parking assist, a 360-degree camera, and Audi Connect services.
The Audi A6 allroad has previously been offered in Australia but only 150 were introduced. Audi says the new version is now a permanent part of the local lineup. It’s available to order now with prices starting from $111,900 (excluding on-roads), with the Technik option adding $4500.
