After a 15-year hiatus, Audi is ready to bring their unique all-wheel drive off-road wagon back to the US market, this after years of begging and pleading by Audi enthusiasts. The 2020 Audi A6 allroad arrives with a specially tuned adaptive air suspension system and Audi’s latest version of their quattro all-wheel drive system. The dynamic and refined design of the A6 model line is combined with striking off-road enhancements to emphasize the wagon’s distinct character. Wheel arches and rocker panels are painted in Scandium gray matte that contrast the body paint to emphasize rugged elements. For a more refined esthetic, a full-paint option is also available. A wide allroad-specific grille with chrome vertical slats and 20-inch wheels also differentiate the wagon from its sedan counterpart. Alu-optic finish can be found on the standard roof rails, front blade and underbody protection, and the allroad-specific diffuser in the rear, to further complement the Avant design cues of the vehicle.
A specially tuned adaptive air suspension with controlled damping allows the A6 allroad to switch between on and off-road driving situations, making it ready for the adventure ahead. Ride height is adjusted depending on the mode set using the Audi drive select system and road speed. At its maximum height, the allroad sits 1.8 inches higher than the A6 sedan to enable additional clearance over rugged terrain for a total ground clearance of 7.3 inches. Drivers can choose between six driving modes to best fit nearly any driving scenario.
The available Anniversary Edition A6 allroad pays homage to the vehicle’s adventurous history by offering an exclusive Gavial Green color option, as well as Sarder brown Valcona leather with Fine Nappa accents. The special Gavial Green color in the new Avant takes its cues from the Highland Green color of the original A6 allroad model that debuted in 2000. The Anniversary Edition also includes Fine Grain Ash Natural Noble Wood inlays, pedals and footrest in stainless steel, a leather seat base, and leather airbag cap with contrast stitching. The new allroad will join the RS6 Avant in reigniting America’s love for wagons.
