Audi A6 Allroad Sport lands in the UK

Currently on sale now in the UK, is the Audi A6 Allroad Sport. Audi Allroads are basically just slightly jacked up wagons design for some mild off-roading, let’s call it soft-roading. So the Audi A6 Allroad isn’t much more than a slightly lifted and more rugged A6 Avant. But that isn’t stopping Audi from giving it a Sport badge.

Said Sport badge will start at £49,445 and bring quite a lot of kit with it. Firstly, all A6 Allroad Sports will come with V6 TDI diesel engines. There will be a 215 hp and 268 hp models that will be mated to a seven-soeed dual-clutch automatic transmission and power all four wheels. There will also be a 316 hp model, but that one will use the familiar ZF-sourced eight-speed automatic, as it’s the only transmission that can handle the torque of the more powerful engine. The latter engine can shuffle the Allroad Sport from 0-60 mph in 5.5 seconds.

Along with the engine options come some sporty bits to make the Allroad Sport seem a bit more premium. Things like 19″ wheels, full-LED headlights, LED turn signals and a head-up display. The American jealousy-inducing Matrix OLED headlights will also be available as an option.

While the Audi A6 Allroad isn’t necessarily a sporty vehicle, as it aims more toward utility and luxury, the Sport adds a bit off needed excitement. Now, the A6 Allroad can be both a practical and luxurious while also being fun and sporty. It also looks quite a bit better with its sporty touches.

With the US being the recipient of more Allroads than Avants, it’s possible that such a model might make its way across the Atlantic.
