The fourth generation of the Audi A6 allroad quattro has been launched, a car that is just at home on the road as it is off the road.

26 Jun 2019 | International News : Germany

The Audi A6 allroad quattro is now entering its fourth generation as it celebrates its 20th anniversary - Audi premiered this highly versatile variant of the Avant in 1999. It is at home both on and off the road and also offers ample pulling power. The standard all-wheel drive and adaptive air suspension with variable ground clearance make for enhanced off-road capabilities - yet it is just as dynamic as it is comfortable on the road. The distinctive look and extensive equipment round out the multifaceted talents of the A6 allroad quattro.

The A6 allroad quattro can be raised to up to 45mm higher than the standard A6 Avant
The adaptive air suspension with controlled damping comes standard in the Audi A6 allroad quattro and was tuned specifically to boost its off-road capabilities. It adjusts 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 can be actively adjusted with a speed-dependent control strategy.

If the highest ride height is selected and the speed is a maximum of 35km/h, the body is raised 45mm. The body is lowered automatically when this speed is exceeded. At highway speeds above 120km/h, the ride height is lowered by 15mm. If the A6 allroad quattro sets off in offroad mode, which covers speeds up to 80km/h, the body is 30mm higher than the standard ride height. Traveling at very slow speeds below 35km/h, lift mode adds another 15mm.

Standard hill descent control and tilt angle assist allow the A6 allroad to take off-road terrain in its stride
In addition to the specially adapted suspension, the A6 allroad quattro offers additional comfort features including standard hill descent control and tilt angle assist that allow it to take off-road terrain in its stride. When negotiating light terrain, the driver can call up a display on the MMI monitor, which shows the current tilt angle in the longitudinal and transverse directions - where the vehicle is at risk of tipping over, a warning appears.

On a steep slope the hill descent control limits the speed in the range of 2 to 30km/h to a figure defined by the driver and brakes all four wheels selectively and individually as necessary. On loose surfaces the system provides an additional braking wedge in front of the wheel by using a special ABS brake function. In the Audi drive select offroad mode, all the relevant dynamic handling systems through to stabilization control are tailored to off-road conditions.

The new A6 allroad quattro also features an off-road look that is even more striking than on the predecessor model. This exterior and the individual, versatile interior solutions emphasize the new model's strong character.

The wide, low Singleframe with its vertical aluminum struts illustrates the car's robust charm
Special attachments on the body bring to life the robust charm of the new A6 allroad quattro. The wide, low Singleframe with its vertical aluminum struts dominates its front end. The blade and the underbody protection gleam with their aluminum-look finish. The allroad-specific roof rails mounted on bars and the window slot trims, the underbody protection as well as the diffuser trim and the band between the rear lights are finished in a choice of black or aluminum look. The wheel arch trims are finished in contrasting scandium gray as standard. They are available optionally in the body color or in gloss black. The contrasting sill trims on the sides come with allroad logos.

The interior is available in three colors - black, pearl beige and okapi brown. The seats are upholstered as standard in black cloth and partial leather. Alternatively beige and brown tones as well as the stylish perforated Valcona leather grade are also available. Instead of the standard inlays in graphite gray fine paint finish, there are two wood variants and one in aluminum.

The allroad line includes two-tone petrol gray and black Alcantara/leather seats 
The allroad line makes the interior even more sophisticated. This option includes sport seats with upholstery made of an Alcantara/leather combination that combines two colors - petrol gray and black. Inlays and pedals made of aluminum, illuminated door sill trims with logo projection add further highlights. Optionally, the allroad line comes with many other interior decor variants - special color combinations, contrasting stitching and piping as well as decorative trims made of fine grain birch wood and the specific aluminum strip with subtle green color highlights, matching the exterior paint. 

The new A6 allroad quattro is available with three V6 TDI engine options.The 3.0-litre TDI engine is available with three output ratings - 228bhp, 282bhp and 245bhp. The three TDI units transfer their power with an eight-speed tiptronic transmission. The three TDI units also come standard with Audi's mild hybrid technology, which makes driving even more convenient and can reduce fuel consumption in real driving conditions. It works on the basis of a new 48-volt main electrical system.
