Crossover-styled wagon hits the ‘Ring during development testing.
The next-generation Audi A6 Allroad has been spied again, this time around the Nurburgring in Germany, wearing less disguise than previously.
We already have a general idea of what to expect from the new Allroad’s design, given we’ve already seen the latest A6 Avant, though the high-riding version will get some unique design elements and off-road technology to take advantage of the extra ride height.
Expect contrasting cladding on the bumpers, extended wheel arches, and side sills, unique alloy wheel designs, and the availability of height-adjustable air suspension with model-specific off-road modes.
Additionally, it’s likely the Allroad will get some unique interior appointments from Audi’s ‘Q’ range of SUVs for the steering wheel, Virtual Cockpit interface, and potentially different trim inserts.
The aforementioned off-road modes will also add extra menus and graphics for the Virtual Cockpit display, and likely additional content to the dual-screen central infotainment and control system.
Power should come from higher-spec engines in the A6 line-up, namely the ’50 TDI’ 3.0-litre six-cylinder turbo-diesel with 210kW and 620Nm, capable of hitting 100km/h in 5.7 seconds and spinning all the way to 250km/h in the regular A6 Avant.
In terms of timing, it’s believed the A6 Allroad will make its debut either before or at the 2019 Geneva motor show in March. Stay tuned to CarAdvice for all the latest.
