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.
VW's five door up! takes off
After its success with the three-door version, VW have produced a five-door
version of the family car.
First, the extra doors. Five doors make so much sense for a family
car that you wonder why anyone would bother with a three-door. Five-door
versions of the up! only cost £375 more, so there's not a huge cost issue.
The High up! comes with a piano black dashboard but for no extra
money you can have it painted in the exterior body colour. The dash of our
three-door in March was in red and it looked great.
