The Audi A6 Allroad offers excellent roadholding, quality and luxury in a practical and stylish body. It's also fast, frugal and user friendly with the benefit of being able to tackle the odd muddy road.
The Audi A6 Allroad Quattro takes the latest-generation Audi A6 Avant and gives it the off-road treatment. A 15mm increase in ride height allows greater approach and departure angles, while wheel arch cladding distinguishes it visually from the Audi A6 Avant on which it's based. There's adjustable air suspension standard across the range as well as specially tuned ESP and underbody armour. There are three diesels and one petrol variant, starting with the 201bhp 3.0-litre diesel, a 242bhp 3.0-litre diesel (expected to make up 86 per cent of sales) and a 306bhp 3.0-litre turbocharged petrol. All of these engines are mated to a seven-speed S tronic transmission. The most potent of the range is the 309bhp 3.0-litre BiTDI twin-turbo V6 diesel and it's the only motor to use the new eight-speed transmission.
