The mule shows how the future Audi A6 Allroad rival will sit on a raised V90 platform and wear its own unique bumpers and standard-fit roof rails.
The car’s overall look will likely be more rugged than the regular V90 thanks to black exterior trim and under body protection that will extend out under the front and rear bumpers. Smaller alloy wheels wrapped in higher profile tyres will help to finish off the off-roader look.
There may be a few minor changes inside to mark out the car’s more purposeful stance, but overall the layout will be largely the same – a good thing given that this is a strong part of the regular V90.
Top end models will come exclusively with all-wheel-drive, but lower specification cars could make use of front-wheel-drive, which is also the standard setup of the normal V90. That car does have one four-wheel-drive option, however - it comes as standard when the car is fitted with the D5 twin-turbo diesel engine.
