While all Audi enthusiasts are clamoring about the new RS6 Avant, another new version of the A6 is also coming to America and is exciting a lot of customers — the Audi A6 Allroad. Sure, we already knew the A6 Allroad was on its way but Audi has just released pricing for it just in time for the Holidays.
The Audi A6 Allroad is essentially an A6 Avant (wagon) for Americans. I say it’s for Americans because for some reason we can’t be bothered to buy wagons here in the ‘States but if automakers pretend the wagon is rugged, we hop all over it. So it is indeed an A6 wagon just lifted up a bit with some faux-rugged body paneling. Still, being that its bones are those of an A6 Avant, it’s a great luxury car.
Powering the Audi A6 Allroad ‘Stateside is a 3.0 liter turbocharged V6, the same one found in the standard A6 sedan. So it makes 335 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque. That engine is paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission and Quattro all-wheel drive as-standard. So it’s essentially just an A6 underneath.
The Audi A6 Allroad does get some unique features and options, though. For instance, it gets 20-inch wheels as standard kit, a dual-pane panoramic sunroof and unique Alu-optic finish roof rails.
There’s also a 20th Anniversary Edition model, paying tribute to 20 years of Allroads. It comes with Gavial Green exterior with Scandium Gray contrast accents, paying homage to the original A6 Allroad’s Highland Green color. It also comes with Sarder brown Valcona leather, illuminated door sills and aluminum pedals.
Pricing on the Audi A6 Allroad is as follows: Premium Plus models start at $65,900 and Prestige models start at $70,400. No word on pricing for the anniversary model just yet but expect it to be a bit more. For more info on the specs and features of the A6 Allroad, click here.
