20 years of A6 Avant with offroad qualities: a new Audi A6 allroad quattro

The Audi A6 allroad quattro: a vast all-rounder from Audi

The A6 allroad quattro is now entering a fourth era as it celebrates a 20th anniversary – Audi premiered this rarely versatile various of a Avant in 1999. It is during home both on and off a highway and also offers plenty pulling power. The customary all-wheel expostulate and adaptive atmosphere cessation with non-static belligerent clearway make for extended off-road capabilities – nonetheless it is only as energetic as it is gentle on a road. The particular demeanour and endless apparatus spin out a multifaceted talents of a A6 allroad quattro.

“Town, country, river” – endless cessation facilities for on-road and off-road

The A6 allroad quattro physique is adult to 45 millimeters (1.8 in) aloft than a A6 Avant. The belligerent clearway during customary float tallness is 139 mm (5.5 in), underscoring a off-road qualities. The A6 allroad quattro is equally absolute when used as a towing automobile – it can draw adult to 2.5 tons.

The adaptive atmosphere cessation with tranquil damping comes customary in a Audi A6 allroad quattro and was tuned privately for a A6 allroad quattro to boost a off-road capabilities. It adjusts a float tallness depending on a highway speed and mode set in a Audi expostulate name system. In automobile and comfort modes, a A6 allroad quattro sets off during customary float tallness with a belligerent clearway of 139 mm (5.5 in), whichcan be actively practiced with a speed-dependent control strategy. If a tip float tallness is comparison and a speed is max. 35 km/h (21.7 mph), a physique is lifted 45 mm (1.8 in). The physique is lowered automatically when this speed is exceeded. At highway speeds above 120 km/h (74.6 mph), a float tallness is lowered by 15 millimeters (0.6 in). If a A6 allroad quattro sets off in offroad mode, that covers speeds adult to 80 km/h (49.7 mph), a physique is 30 millimeters (1.2 in) aloft than a customary float height. Traveling during really delayed speeds next 35 km/h (21.7 mph), lift mode adds another 15 millimeters (0.6 in), lifting a belligerent clearway 45 millimeters (1.8 in) above a normal position.

In serve to a specifically blending suspension, a A6 allroad quattro offers additional comfort facilities including customary mountain skirmish control and lean angle support that concede it to take off-road turf in a stride. When negotiating light terrain, a motorist can call adult a arrangement on a MMI monitor, that shows a stream lean angle in a longitudinal and cross directions – where a automobile is during risk of tipping over, a warning appears. On a high slope a mountain skirmish control boundary a speed in a operation of 2 to 30 km/h (1.2–18.6 mph) to a figure tangible by a motorist and brakes all 4 wheels selectively and divided as necessary. On lax surfaces a element provides an additional braking crowd in front of a round by regulating a special ABS stop function. In a Audi expostulate name offroad mode, all a applicable energetic doing systems by to stabilization control are tailored to off-road conditions.

Distinctive impression – distinguished pattern and model-specific look

The new A6 allroad quattro facilities an off-road demeanour that is even some-more distinguished than on a prototype model. This extraneous and a individual, versatile interior solutions stress a new model’s clever character.

Special attachments on a physique move to life a strong attract of a new A6 allroad quattro. The wide, low Singleframe with a true aluminum struts dominates a front end. The blade and a underbody insurance radiate with their aluminum-look finish. The allroad-specific roof rails mounted on bars and a window container trims, a underbody insurance as good as a diffuser trim and a rope between a back lights are finished in a choice of black or aluminum look. The round arch trims are finished in resisting scandium gray as standard. They are accessible optionally in a physique tone or in shimmer black. The resisting sill trims on a sides come with allroad logos.

Two discretionary packages serve file a look: a aluminum extraneous package and a black styling package with dim attachments and trim strips. The paint operation for a new Audi A6 allroad quattro comprises eleven colors, including a new allroad-specific tone gavial green, that takes a evidence from a specific tone of a initial indication in 1999.

The interior is accessible in 3 colors – black, pearl beige and okapi brown. The seats are upholstered as customary in black cloth and prejudiced leather. Alternatively beige and brownish-red tones as good as a stylish seperated Valcona leather class are also available. Instead of a customary inlays in graphite gray excellent paint finish, there are dual timber variants and one in aluminum.

The allroad line creates a interior even some-more sophisticated. This choice includes competition seats with upholstery done of an Alcantara/leather multiple that combines dual colors – petrol gray and black. Inlays and pedals done of aluminum, bright doorway sill trims with trademark projection supplement serve highlights. Optionally, a allroad line comes with many other interior taste variants – special tone combinations, resisting stitching and piping as good as musical trims done of excellent pellet birch timber and a specific aluminum frame with pointed immature tone highlights, relating a extraneous paint.

For perceptive mandate – drive, cessation and equipment

The A6 allroad quattro targets a graphic patron organisation that appreciates a flexibility of a allroad with a disdainful apparatus lines and details, absolute six-cylinder engines and model-specific cessation tuning.

High torque for high pulling energy – Audi offers a new A6 allroad quattro on European markets with a choice of 3 V6 TDI engines. All units beget their energy from 3 liters of banishment and have been redesigned extensively compared with a prototype model.

The 3.0 TDI is accessible in 3 outlay ratings. The initial produces 170 kW (231 PS) and – from 1,750 to 3,250 rpm – 500 Nm (368.8 lb-ft) of torque, sufficient for a scurry from 0 to 100 km/h (0–62.1 mph) in 6.7 seconds and a tip speed of 250 km/h (155.3 mph). The WLTP values relate to an NEDC fuel expenditure for a A6 allroad quattro 45 TDI* of 5.9–5.8 liters of fuel per 100 kilometers (39.9–40.6 US mpg) (156-152 grams CO2 per kilometer (251.1–244.6 g/mi))**. In a A6 allroad quattro 50 TDI*, a engine produces 210 kW (286 PS) and delivers 620 Nm (457.3 lb-ft) of torque between 2,250 and 3,000 rpm. The data: 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 5.9 seconds, tip speed 250 km/h (155.3 mph) (regulated), fuel expenditure of 5.9–5.8 liters per 100 kilometers (39.9–40.6 g/mi) (156–152 grams CO2 per kilometer (251.1–244.6 g/mi))**. The top-of-the-line engine in a new A6 allroad is a 3.0 TDI with 257 kW (349 hp) of energy and 700 Nm (516.3 lb-ft) of torque between 2,500 and 3,100 rpm. It accelerates a A6 allroad quattro 55 TDI* from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 5.2 seconds and consumes 6.6–6.4 liters of fuel per 100 kilometers (35.6–36.8 g/mi)**
(172–168 grams CO2 per kilometer (276.8–270.4 g/mi)**.

The 3 TDI units send their energy with an eight-speed tiptronic. The wheel-selective torque control is a ideal element to a quattro permanent all-wheel expostulate element that is also propitious standard. When pushing during speed, it brakes a dual wheels with reduced bucket on a inside of a hook somewhat before they can start to spin. The expostulate torque is redirected to a wheels with improved traction as a result. As an option, a competition differential distributes a energy forever variably between a back wheels – this active torque vectoring provides a ultimate boost in terms of energetic doing and traction.

The 3 TDI units come customary with Audi’s amiable hybrid record (MHEV = Mild Hybrid Electric Vehicle), that creates pushing even some-more available and can revoke fuel expenditure in genuine pushing conditions by adult to 0.4 liters per 100 kilometers. It works on a basement of a new 48-volt categorical electrical system.

The belt alternator starter as a executive MHEV member recovers adult to 8 kW of energy during braking and feeds a electricity into a apart lithium-ion battery with a ability of 10 Ah. The new Audi A6 allroad quattro can seashore with a engine switched off over far-reaching speed ranges; start-stop mode kicks in right from 22 km/h (13.7 mph).

The cessation of a A6 allroad quattro combines sporty impression with really high comfort and extended off-road capabilities. Apart from a adaptive atmosphere cessation with tranquil damping it offers other highlights. The customary on-going steering becomes increasingly approach with augmenting steering angle. Its control judgment keeps divided upsetting jolts from a steering wheel, nonetheless transfers pure feedback from a road. The discretionary energetic all-wheel steering combines lively and stability. At speeds adult to 60 km/h (37.3 mph), a back wheels spin as most as 5 degrees in a conflicting instruction to a front wheels, shortening a branch round and creation a steering response even some-more spontaneous. At aloft speeds a front and back wheels spin adult to dual degrees in a same direction, so enhancing fortitude when roving in a true line or changing lanes.

Apart from a startle absorbers and bellows, a electronic framework height (ECP) also manages a energetic all-wheel steering and a discretionary competition differential. In a Audi expostulate name system, a motorist can adjust a operation of a tranquil functions and components in 6 modes (dynamic, automatic, comfort, efficiency, allroad and lift). The Audi A6 allroad quattro is propitious as customary with 18-inch wheels with 225/55 distance tires. The largest discretionary wheels – from a Audi Sport operation – magnitude 21 inches in diameter.

As an choice to a customary seats, that can be versed with chair heating and ventilation, Audi also reserve competition seats. Top-of-the-line apparatus comes in a figure of a electrically tractable customized contour seats, that can be supplemented with a massage function. Optional apparatus serve boosts comfort: The atmosphere peculiarity package adds pointed fragrances to a interior and includes an ionizer. The breathtaking potion sunroof brings light and uninformed atmosphere into a car. In a dark, a contour ambient lighting package floods a interior in a special look.

The new Audi A6 allroad quattro is 4.95 meters (16.2 ft) long, 1.90 meters (6.2 ft) far-reaching and 1.50 meters (4.9 ft) high. The wheelbase of 2.93 meters (9.6 ft) provides a basement for inexhaustible amounts of space including a endless bend room in a front and back and atmospheric knee room in a rear. Like a A6 Avant, it offers a luggage ability of between 565 liters (20.0 cu ft) and 1,680 liters (59.3 cu ft) with a back seats folded down. The back seats can be split-folded 40:20:40 as standard. Standard apparatus also includes a electric tailgate and a automatically opening luggage cell cover. A rail system, a tensioning strap, a net and dual bag hooks also form partial of a customary specification. The discretionary load-securing pack with telescopic bar and tag allows a luggage cell to be divided adult into particular sections. The trailer join facilities an electric recover function. There is a clarity of still on house – pleasantness of a unbending physique done from an aluminum hybrid construction and a worldly aeroacoustics.

Digital local – infotainment, connectivity and motorist assistance

The A6 allroad quattro facilities a same endless infotainment operation found in a A6 and A7 sister models. The all-digital handling element comprising a tip vast shade – measuring 10.1 inches in a top-of-the-line chronicle – is used to control a infotainment. On a 8.6-inch arrangement below, a motorist operates a meridian control, a comfort functions and a content input. The natural-language voice control uses both onboard information as good as believe from a cloud to routine all input. Optionally a new A6 allroad quattro also includes a Audi practical cockpit – a 12.3-inch arrangement is tranquil with a multifunction buttons on a steering wheel. It is complemented by a further discretionary top-of-the-line infotainment control core – a MMI navigation and including LTE procedure and Wi-Fi hotspot. The navigation learns formed on prior journeys and can yield a motorist with suitable suggestions when selecting a route. The track is distributed online on a servers of use provider HERE and also onboard. Audi also reserve a head-up arrangement as an option.

The Audi bond online services are separate into dual packages – navigation infotainment and puncture call service. The myAudi app connects a user’s smartphone seamlessly with a MMI; a Audi bond pivotal lets a motorist unlock/lock a vehicle, and start a engine regulating an Android smartphone around nearby margin communication (NFC). The discretionary Bang Olufsen Advanced Sound System, that incorporates 19 loudspeakers and a subwoofer, also delivers 3D sound to a rear. Up to 7 drivers can store around 400 functions in adult to 7 particular profiles. The motorist support systems in a new Audi A6 allroad quattro yield even some-more comfort and safety. They are divided into dual packages: The Tour support package includes functions such as potency assist, adaptive journey support and puncture assist. The City package facilities a intersection support and a exit warning. The executive motorist assistance controller (zFAS), that invariably calculates a indication of a automobile environment, provides a information source for all these systems.

Exclusive for a marketplace introduction – a “20 years allroad” book model

To coincide with a introduction of a new A6 allroad quattro, Audi is rising a “20 years allroad” book model. Both a extraneous and interior have been put together individually. Three paint colors are available: gavial immature as good as glacier white and Soho brown. The black styling package has been extended with specific Audi rings and extraneous counterpart housings.
