We’ve known the Audi A6 Allroad was on its way, and even coming to the US market, for some time now. So this is really no surprise, especially considering the success of the A4 Allroad in the ‘States, but some new spy photos have recently surfaced showing off the upcoming A6 Allroad in some snow. (We don’t own the spy photos but you can see them here)
In these photos, we see a partially camouflaged Audi A6 Allroad doing some winter testing. We can tell it’s an Allroad variant judging by its slightly taller ride height and its plastic cladding on its wheel arches. While most of said plastic is covered in camo, there are exposed bits on the wheel arches, giving away its Allroad nature.
Don’t expect this to be much different than the Audi A6 Avant, though. It’s essentially the same thing with a slightly taller ride height, possibly height-adjustable air suspension, some plastic cladding to make it look rugged and a name that inspires a more “active” lifestyle. So Americans will eat it up, essentially. Wagons? No way, José. But psuedo-active wagons with “off-road” capability? Yes, please.
Thankfully, it’s also said that the Audi A6 Avant will be making its way ‘Stateside. That makes the Allroad much more tolerable. While not a bad car, the Audi A4 Allroad’s existence in America is infuriating to some enthusiasts (this one included) as we don’t get the regular A4 Avant here as well. So the fact that both the Audi A6 Allroad and A6 Avant will be making it to the US is much easier to swallow. Plus, we’ve also heard that Audi will be bringing the RS6 Avant to America as well. If that happens, almost everything and anything Audi does/did will be forgiven. Please, Audi, make it so.
