The new Audi A6 allroad – a Avant for any kind of road

Posted on 10. Jan, 2012 by in Audi Canada

The initial dual generations of a allroad quattro from a years 2000 and 2006 were winners, and Audi hopes to build on this success with a third generation. Universally talented, a new A6 allroad quattro extends a operation of uses for a A6 Avant since when a pavement ends, it only keeps on driving. Performance has softened and fuel expenditure has been reduced by as many as 20 percent compared with a prior model.

Body and extraneous design
The new A6 allroad quattro is 4.94 meters (16.21 ft) long, 1.90 meters (6.23 ft) far-reaching and 1.47 (4.82 ft) meters tall, creation it a few millimeters bigger than a Avant. It follows a Audi ultra lightweight construction element informed from a sedan, with aluminum components creation adult roughly 20 percent of a body. Total automobile weight has been reduced by as many as 70 kilograms (154 lb) compared with a prior model.

The Audi A6 allroad quattro has a sportily sold highway stance. It facilities offset proportions, pointy lines delineate frozen surfaces and a roof line flows into prosaic D-pillars. Audi offers on-going LED record as an choice for a headlights and tail lights. The xenon and headlights can be total with adaptive light, that ensures that a highway is always scrupulously bright for a conditions during hand.

The physique of a new A6 allroad quattro sits 6 centimeters (2.36 in) aloft than that of a A6 Avant. Setting it detached are, in particular, a trim strips on a side sills, a some-more widely flared fenders and a single-frame grille with straight slats. Stainless steel covers strengthen a underbody during a front and back of a car, and a empty complement ends in dual large, flattened tailpipes. The roof rails are mounted on double bars.

The circle good edges, a bumpers and a sills are embellished in a resisting color. Audi also offers a full paint finish in multiple with a discretionary aluminum extraneous package. The tone Java Braun is accessible exclusively for a new A6 allroad quattro.

Interior and luggage compartment
The interior of a Audi A6 allroad quattro offers copiousness of space interjection to a prolonged wheelbase of 2.91 meters (9.55 ft). It facilities a lean, superb design, exemplarily transparent ergonomics and higher workmanship. A duty that depicts a car’s representation has been combined to a MMI doing system, a soothing keys of that are radiant aluminum. MMI comes as standard, as does a onboard mechanism with potency program. A extensive package of patience systems helps to lessen a consequences of an accident.

Visual cues differentiating a A6 allroad quattro embody a carpeting and a instrument panel, that are black throughout. Other polished sum embody a interior tone Santos Brown and a discretionary aluminum inlays. The doorway sill trims are also done of aluminum and are emblazoned with “allroad.”

The luggage cell of a new A6 allroad quattro has a ability of 565 liters (19.95 cu ft). Latches in a luggage cell make it easy to overlay down a back seats, augmenting luggage ability to 1,680 liters (59.33 cu ft). Standard apparatus facilities underscore a unsentimental impression of a new indication – a rail complement with an enclosed load-securing pack for dividing a luggage cell as needed, tensioning straps on a left wall and a double loading floor.

Equipment and Audi connect

Ambient lighting bathes a interior with pointed LED light, and a widely tractable fine front seats are optionally accessible with a movement and massage function. Additional highlights embody four-zone involuntary atmosphere conditioning, a breathtaking potion roof and a preference key, that can stay in a driver’s coupler pocket.

Topping a modular operation of infotainment options is a tough drive-based navigation complement MMI Navigation and with touchpad operation (MMI touch) and whole-word voice control. Its power-retractable eight-inch guard displays intensely sharp, high-contrast images. The Bang Olufsen Advanced Sound System boasts 15 speakers.

The new A6 allroad quattro is also state of a art when it comes to tie technology. The discretionary Bluetooth automobile phone online connects it to a Internet around UMTS, and a WLAN hotspot lets a passengers roller and e-mail. Tailored services for a driver, such as a all-new Audi trade information online or Audi song tide web radio, are delivered right to a car. Attractive services from Google, including Google Earth, Google Street View and voice-activated POI search, are also available.

Driver assistance systems
The Audi assistance and reserve systems lend even some-more certainty to driving. The radar-based adaptive journey control with stop go duty always keeps a new A6 allroad quattro during a correct stretch from a automobile ahead. At speeds next 30 km/h (18.64 mph), a complement triggers limit braking in a eventuality of an imminent collision. ACC stop go works closely together with a Audi pre clarity reserve system, that is accessible in a series of configurations.

Audi active line support helps a motorist to say a lane; Audi side support helps when changing lanes. The night prophesy partner with imprinting of rescued persons reduces a highlight of pushing in a dark. The motorist information complement with rest recommendation duty detects when a motorist is removing sleepy and recommends holding a rest.

A accumulation of high-end systems assistance take a highlight out of parking. The park support complement with 360° arrangement takes over a steering; a parking complement and with 360° camera provides good prophesy in all directions. Four tiny wide-angle cameras record images of a vehicle’s evident surroundings, that can afterwards be displayed from a accumulation of perspectives on a MMI monitor.

Drivetrain
The new A6 allroad quattro is accessible with a choice of 4 absolute and rarely cultivated V6 engines – one TFSI gasoline engine and 3 TDI units. All are three-liter engines with turbocharging and approach injection. They make use of critical technologies from a Audi modular potency height – a start-stop complement and innovative thermal management. Their fuel expenditure has been reduced by as many as 20 percent compared with a prior model.

The 3.0 TFSI, that is increased by a mechanically driven compressor, produces 228 kW (310 hp) and 440 Nm (324.53 lb-ft) of torque. It accelerates a A6 allroad quattro from 0 to 100 km/h (62.14 mph) in 5.9 seconds on a approach to a electronically singular tip speed of 250 km/h (155.34 mph). It consumes 8.9 liters of fuel per 100 km (26.43 US mpg).

The 3 variants of a 3.0 TDI furnish 150 kW (204 hp), 180 kW (245 hp) and 230 kW (313 hp); torque values are 450, 580 and 650 Nm (331.90, 427.79 and 479.42 lb-ft). The entry-level chronicle consumes on normal only 6.1 liters of fuel per 100 km (38.56 US mpg), analogous to 159 g CO2/km (255.89 g/mile).

With their far-reaching ratio spreads, a involuntary transmissions are vital contributors to a potency of a A6 allroad quattro. The motorist can work them manually, including around discretionary paddles on a steering wheel.

The quattro permanent four-wheel expostulate complement is interconnected with torque vectoring. During energetic pushing this complement brakes a wheels on a inside of a curve, that are underneath a reduced load, before they can slip. This serve enhances traction and handling. The discretionary competition differential distributes a energy in invariably non-static proportions between a back wheels.

Chassis
The framework of a A6 allroad quattro combines sportiness with comfort. The new electromechanical energy steering is supportive and rarely efficient. The discretionary energetic steering adjusts a steering ratio to a speed driven.
