The third generation version Audi A6 Allroad is available to order from this week.
The variant of the Audi A6 features Audi’s latest generation four-wheel drive system and four-level height adjustable air suspension. Priced from £43,150, it will reach customers in July.
Extended side sills, flared wheel arches and stainless steel underbody guards at the front and rear distinguish the allroad quattro. Wheel arches, bumpers and sills are finished in a contrasting colour, although they can be body-coloured as an option.
Four forced-induction V6 engines are available – one petrol, three diesel – with start-stop technology as standard. The three single turbocharger engines utilise Audi’s seven-speed S tronic dual-clutch transmission whilst the BiTDI option is matched with the most recent eight-speed tiptronic automatic transmission.
The 306bhp 3.0-litre petrol supercharged TFSI unit helps the new car to achieve a 0-60mph time of 5.9 seconds. Top speed is electronically limited to 155mph.
Audi says the new car weighs 70 kilograms less than the previous model thanks to 20 percent of its body being composed of aluminium. It also claims a 20 percent improvement in fuel economy over the car’s predecessor.
Standard equipment includes 18-inch alloy wheels, leather upholstery, cruise control and Audi’s adaptive dynamics system, which enables drivers to adjust steering, throttle and transmission characteristics. The options list includes a torque-varying sport differential, head up display and panoramic glass roof.
Prices range from £43,150 to £49,445.
