2019 Audi A6 Allroad price and release date
As an alternative to other premium, mild-off-road-capable estates – such as the Mercedes E-Class All-Terrain – the 2019 Audi A6 Allroad will start from around £55,000. It will be available to order in August.
2019 Audi A6 Allroad styling
The 2019 Audi A6 Allroad is the offroad, quasi-SUV variant of the regular Audi A6. As such – aside from the beefy body cladding – it gets a higher ground clearance, underbody protection (to save the car’s mechanicals from scuffs and scrapes) and roof bars that will make it easy to fit a storage box. Other aesthetic differences include six chrome vertical slats on the grille and the removal of silver trim on the outer sides of the air intakes.
The Sport version of the 2019 Audi A6 Allroad makes details of the exterior trim – like the roof rack and underbody protection – chrome; on the Vorsprung, they’re black.
2019 Audi A6 Allroad specs
At launch, the 2019 Audi A6 Allroad will be available in two different specs: Sport and Vorsprung. Aside from the aforementioned aesthetic differences, the latter also incorporates all-wheel steering. This will make tricky manoeuvres – such as negotiating tight, multi-storey car parks – much easier by turning both the front and rear wheels. The system also makes the car more stable when changing lanes at higher speeds.
The 2019 Audi A6 Allroad can come available with a plethora of systems that mean it can drive itself on A-roads and on the motorway. However, these autonomous driving aids will cost extra.
2019 Audi A6 Allroad driving
The 2019 Audi A6 Allroad has adaptive air suspension as standard across the range – unlike the standard A6, which gets traditional coil springs as standard. This means that the Allroad can be raised or lowered depending on the terrain you’re tackling. At its tallest, the A6 Allroad is 45mm higher off the ground than the Audi A6 Avant. This is ideal if you’re tackling a bumpy track or heavily-rutted private road. On the other hand, if you’re travelling at 74mph or above, the body will lower by 15mm for better aerodynamics.
The 2019 Audi A6 Allroad also has hill-descent control. This takes care of braking for you as you go down steep slopes, allowing you to maintain control even if there’s very little grip.
The 2019 Audi A6 Allroad is also a good candidate if you’re after a stylish tow car, since it can haul up to 2.5 tonnes.
2019 Audi A6 Allroad engines
When it’s released, the 2019 Audi A6 Allroad will have two engines available. Both will be diesel and equipped with mild-hybrid technology for improved fuel economy.
The first engine is the 45 TDI. It produces 231hp and goes from 0-62mph in 6.7 seconds. There is also a 50 TDI engine, with 286hp and 0-62mph in 5.9 seconds. Both have all-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic gearbox.
2019 Audi A6 Allroad interior and infotainment
As standard, the 2019 Audi A6 Allroad gets the same infotainment system as the standard Audi A6. So, you get a dual-screen, voice-operated MMI setup. The top, 10.1-inch screen controls features such as the sat-nav and radio, while the lower, 8.6-inch screen deals with the climate control. The navigation in the A6 Allroad actively learns as you drive, picking up your habits and adjusting its future suggestions accordingly. For example, it will learn your daily commute and – if you call your partner on a Friday night – will learn this behaviour and offer to regularly call them again based on this.
Alternatively, you can upgrade to an optional12.3-inch Virtual Cockpit setup, which places the infotainment directly in front of the driver, behind the steering wheel. This system also has a wi-fi hotspot built in.
The A6 Allroad will be compatible with the myAudi app. With this, you’ll be able to lock, unlock and even start the car using only your Android smartphone.
Inside, you get seats upholstered in leather and Alcantara as standard. A 2,930mm wheelbase (the distance between the front and rear wheels) means that the 2019 Audi A6 Allroad will be just slightly more spacious than the outgoing model. As such, expect a cabin that can happily haul four fully-grown adults. The boot is 565 litres, upping to 1,680 if you fold the rear seats down.
