New Audi A6 allroad Quattro
Audi has unveiled its new A6 Allroad. It's the third iteration of the
taller-riding A6, which sits halfway between estate and SUV.
It rides 60mm higher than a standard A6 Avant, and gets four-level adaptive
air suspension as standard. As you'd hope, quattro all-wheel drive is
fitted to all models. It also looks noticeably butcher than other A6s
thanks to extended side sills, flared wings, a new grille and roof rails.
Initially, there's three engine choices, all V6s, with one petrol-powered
unit -- a 306bhp/325lb ft 3.0-litre TFSI, capable of 31.7mpg -- and two
diesels, 201bhp/332lb ft and 241bhp/428lb ft tunes of 3.0-litre TDI, the
most frugal of which tops 46mpg. All engines boast turbocharging and direct injection, and are linked
to a seven-speed S-tronic twin-clutch gearbox. Expect an ultra-brisk A6
Allroad equipped with Audi's 309bhp twin-turbo 3.0-litre V6 TDI at a later date, serving up
a 5.6sec 0-62mph sprint via an eight-speed Tiptronic transmission.
The four-wheel-drive system is permanent and paired with torque vectoring,
which brakes the wheels on the inside of corners to Boost traction. Audi's sport differential --
which varies power continually between the rear wheels during cornering --
is on the options list.
The adaptive air suspension lowers the Allroad's body by 15mm at speed, and
can jack it up by 35mm when rougher terrain approaches. There's also a hill
descent control system for, you guessed it, downhill off-road driving.
Inside, there's the usual plethora of Audi gadgetry on offer, with Bang and
Olufsen sound, in-car WLAN internet access, radar-based cruise control and
a self-parking system among the options.
Expect a wealth of tech options box ticking to substantially add to the A6
Allroad's list price, though, the range starting at a very reasonable
£43,145. UK sales begin in February, with deliveries in spring. Expect to
see the A6 Allroad making its publich debut at the 2012 Geneva motor show

With the Audi drive select system, the driver can vary the function of the
steering, the air suspension, the gas pedal, the automatic transmission,
the sport differential, the automatic air conditioning, the lighting and
the adaptive cruise control. In Efficiency mode, these systems work as
economically as possible; their function can be very freely configured in

Normalerweise sind die Offroad-Versionen populärer Oberklasseautos nur
bedingt geländetauglich. Der A6 allroad ist chic, er belehrt uns aber auch
abseits des Asphalts eines besseren.
