Audi A6 allroad quattro
Now, Audi has just unveiled a new generation of the Audi Allroad, called the 2013 Audi A6 Allroad. Based on the C7 generation A6, the new 2013 Audi A6 Allroad continues with its original recipe.
Power can come from a variety of V6s: one TFSI gasoline engine and three TDI turbocharged oilburners. The gas engine is the same 3.0L TFSI supercharged V6 that found its way to be the base engine in the A7 and the A6 here in North America, good for 310hp and 324 lb-ft of torque, allowing it to 60 in just 5.9 seconds.
The three diesels all of 3.0L displacement and are all twin-turbocharged. The first diesel produces 204hp and 332 lb-ft of twist, the next makes 245hp and 428 lb-ft of torque, and the last mill churns out 313hp and a whopping 480 lb-ft. The most powerful diesel can thrust the new Allroad to 60 in just 5.6 seconds.
The new Audi A6 Allroad will be available in Germany later this spring. Fans of the Allroad here will be disappointed to learn that it won't be making it to our shores, simply because we still have the Q5 and Q7 SUVs.
Audi A6 allroad quattro 2013
The first two generations of the allroad quattro from the years 2000 and
2006 were winners, and Audi hopes to build on this success with the third
generation. Universally talented, the new Audi A6 allroad quattro extends
the range of uses for the A6 Avant because when the asphalt ends, it just
keeps on driving. Performance has improved and fuel consumption has been
reduced by as much as 20 percent compared with the previous model.
Body and exterior design
The new A6 allroad quattro is 4.94 meters (16.21 ft) long, 1.90 meters
(6.23 ft) wide and 1.47 (4.82 ft) meters tall, making it a few millimeters
bigger than the Avant. It follows the Audi ultra lightweight construction
principle familiar from the sedan, with aluminum components making up
roughly 20 percent of its body. Total vehicle weight has been reduced by as
much as 70 kilograms (154 lb) compared with the previous model.
The Audi A6 allroad quattro has a sportily distinctive road stance. It
features balanced proportions, sharp lines delineate taut surfaces and the
roof line flows into flat D-pillars. Audi offers progressive LED technology
as an option for the headlights and tail lights. The xenon plus headlights
can be combined with adaptive light, which ensures that the road is always
properly illuminated for the situation at hand.

Top speed in all-electric mode is 62 mph.) And although you might never
notice its internal-combustion heart beating if you dawdle at or below the
pace of traffic, the engine brings attention to itself with a subdued but
noticeable growl once you call for any real power.

Audi A4 Allroad vs. VW Passat Alltrack OFFROAD
In October 2010 Volkswagen presented at the 2010 Tokyo Motor Show the
Passat Alltrack. The Passat Alltrack bridges the gap between the passenger
VW range and the SUV range comprising the Tiguan and Touareg.
The Passat Alltrack has raised ground clearance from 135 to 165 mm which
improves approach angle from 13.5 to 16 degrees, departure angle from 11.9
to 13.6 degrees and ramp angle from 9.5 to 12.8 degrees when compared to
the standard Passat wagon. Passat Alltrack is the only VW in the passenger
range to offer 4Motion with off road driving programme, the off road system
works in conjunction with the ABS, electronic differential lock (EDL), DSG
& hill descent assist system to control the vehicle in an off road
The engine range of the Passat Alltrack consists of two 2.0L TDI with
outputs of 103 kW/140 hp & 125 kW/170 hp and two petrol engines, 1.8L
producing 118 kW/160 hp and 2.0L TSI producing 155 kW/207 hp. The TDI
models come standard with BlueMotion Technology packages with Stop/Start
system and battery regeneration mode for recovering braking energy. The two
lesser powered engine variants 2.0L TDI and 1.8L TSI are only available in
front wheel drive format with a manual 6 speed transmission. The rest of
the range with 4Motion has a 6 speed DSG automated manual transmission,
except the 2.0L TDI with 103 kW/140 hp has an option of 6 speed manual.
In 2012 at the New York Auto Show, VW showed a Passat Alltrack with 2.0L
TDI 125 kW/170 hp under Alltrack Concept nameplate to gauge response for a
future market in the offroad wagon segment.
Audi released the first official pictures of the B8 series A4 in August
2007, and unveiled the car to the public at the September 2007 Frankfurt
Motor Show. Saloon/sedan and Avant (estate/wagon) models are offered. The
Avant was unveiled to the public at the March 2008 Geneva Motor Show.
The B8 A4 is built on a variant of the Audi Modular Longitudinal Platform,
a platform which is also used in the Audi A5 coupé. Whilst prior A4
chassis were limited in wheelbase due to the relationship between the
engine, transmission and front axle, the MLP allows for a reduced front
overhang, resulting in a greater wheelbase length without the same increase
in overall length. This effectively redistributes the centre of gravity
slightly rearwards, improving handling by better balancing vehicle mass
between the front and rear axles. The estimated static front:rear weight
ratio of the B8 A4 is approximately 55:45, depending on body style and
engine. The relocation of the steering rack in front of the axle also
improves handling over previous A4 platforms.
The B8 A4 has increased in wheelbase by 160 millimetres (6.3 in) and in
length by 117 millimetres (4.6 in) over the prior B7, which has allowed for
increased rear seating legroom. Although the overall dimensions have
increased, the kerb weight has dropped some 10%. The boot (trunk) has also
increased to 480 litres (17.0 cu ft) for the saloon (sedan) version. The A4
Avant will have a maximum capacity of 1,430 L (50.5 cu ft) with the rear
seats folded down.
Reception has been mixed, with praise for the Audi A4's increased size,
giving it best-in-class rear legroom and trunk space in the compact
executive car segment. Its inline-4 2.0 TFSI engine, while efficient
providing plenty of torque, was considered lacking and less refined
compared to 6-cylinder engines of lighter rivals who posted faster acceleration times. However, the Audi
S4 sports sedan has been well-received for its V6 3.0 TFSI engine's power
The B8 A4 was facelifted in early 2012, and is on sale now.
