Audi is again expanding its A6 model family – the new A6 allroad quattro will arrive at dealerships in early 2012. Built to handle every road and byway, the large Audi is the most expressive way to drive an Avant. Equipped with standard adaptive air suspension, the four V6 engines develop between 150 kW (204 hp) and 230 kW (313 hp).
The first two generations of the A6 allroad quattro from model year 2000 and 2006 were already huge successes – Audi now carries the line into its third generation. With its universal talents, the new A6 allroad quattro takes the sporty character of the A6 Avant one step further: It forges ahead, even where the asphalt ends. Its four engines develop between 150 kW (204 hp) and 230 kW (313 hp), summoning their superb power with convincing efficiency.
Measuring 4.94 meters (16.21 ft), the new Audi A6 allroad quattro is closely related to the A6 Avant yet projects its own, rugged style in a great many details. Its lightweight body, which incorporates large areas of aluminum, provides slightly more ground clearance. Its design has been noticeably reworked; the slats in the single-frame grille run from top to bottom, for example. Audi also offers the headlights in Xenon plus or LED technology.
For the exterior and spacious interior, the Audi designers have created custom colors and new materials for the seat covers and trim. The luggage compartment provides a volume of 565 to 1,680 liters (19.95 to 59.33 cu ft), along with practical features such as a load-securing kit. An optional automatic tailgate combined with a retractable electric luggage compartment cover makes loading even easier.
