Audi A6 Allroad (2020): At A Glance

The 4th generation Audi A6 Allroad of 2020 is based on the Audi A6 Avant with a 45mm increase in ride height. Ground clearance is 139mm, giving it greater off-road capability compared to the estate, along with Quattro all-wheel drive. Audi claims an impressive 2500kg braked towing capacity.

Adaptive air suspension is standard, adjusting the ride height depending on the road speed and mode set in the Audi drive select system. In auto and comfort modes, the A6 allroad quattro sets off at standard ride height with a ground clearance of 139mm, which is then actively adjusted according to speed. If the highest ride height is selected at speeds of up to 22mph, the body is raised 45mm. The body is lowered automatically when this speed is exceeded.

At motorway speeds of above 74mph, the ride height is lowered by 15mm. If the A6 allroad quattro sets off in offroad mode, which covers speeds up to 49mph, the body is 30mm higher than the normal ride height. Travelling at very slow speeds below 22mph, lift mode adds another 15mm, raising the ground clearance 45mm above the normal position.

In addition to the specially adapted suspension, the A6 Allroad features hill decent control and tilt angle assist as standard.

In the UK, the new A6 allroad quattro is available in Sport specification or as a high-spec Vorsprung model

Exterior upgrades over the standard A6 Avant include an updated grille, aluminium-look underbody cladding and Allroad-specific roof rails. The paint range for the new Audi A6 Allroad is made up of eleven colours, including the new Allroad-specific colour Gavial Green.

The interior is available in three colours – black, pearl beige and okapi brown. The seats are upholstered as standard in leather and Alcantara.

Buyers can choose from two 3.0-litre V6 diesel engines, each with mild-hybrid technology.

The entry-level V6 TDI used by the A6 Allroad 45 TDI produces 231PS and 500Nm of torque, sufficient for a sprint from 0 to 62mph in 6.7 seconds and a top speed of 155mph. In the A6 Allroad 50 TDI, the engine produces 286PS and delivers 620Nm of torque, taking it to 62mph in 5.9 seconds, on the way to a limited 155mph top speed.

Orders opened in August 2019 with prices starting at around £55,000.
