The first two generations of the allroad quattro from the years 2000 and 2006 were winners, and Audi hopes to build on this success with the third generation. Universally talented, the new A6 allroad quattro extends the range of uses for the A6 Avant because when the asphalt ends, it just keeps on driving. Performance has improved and fuel consumption has been reduced by as much as 20 percent compared with the previous model.

The new A6 allroad quattro is 4.94 meters long, 1.90 meters wide and 1.47 meters tall, making it a few millimeters bigger than the Avant and six cms taller. It follows the Audi ultra lightweight construction principle familiar from the sedan, with aluminum components making up roughly 20 percent of its body. Total vehicle weight has been reduced by as much as 70 kilograms (154 lb) compared with the previous model.

The new A6 allroad quattro is available with a choice of four powerful and highly cultivated V6 engines – one TFSI gasoline engine and three TDI units.

The 3.0 TFSI, which is boosted by a mechanically driven compressor, produces 228 kW (310 hp) and 440 Nm of torque. It accelerates the A6 allroad quattro from zero to 100 km/h in 5.9 seconds on the way to a electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h. It consumes 8.9 liters of fuel per 100 km.

The new Audi A6 allroad quattro will be available in Germany from spring 2012.
