Audi Says It’s Considering A6 Allroad For The U.S. – Should They Bring It?

Audi has admitted that it is considering bringing the latest A6 Allroad to the U.S.

The high-riding estate was unveiled just a couple of days ago as the lifted and slightly more offroad-focused version of the latest-generation A6 Avant family. Speaking with Car and Driver, an Audi spokesperson revealed that the German car manufacturer is still thinking about bringing the car to the United States.

Audi has sold a small handful of Allroad models in the United States over the past couple of decades, including the C5-generation A6 model. However, the U.S. missed out on both the sixth- and seventh-generation A6 Allroads.

If Audi does bring the A6 Allroad Stateside, it will probably be powered by a turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine and start in the low-$60,000 range allowing it to nicely rival cars like the Volvo V90 Cross Country.

Should Audi go ahead with this plan, then other A6 Avant models would likely follow suit, perhaps even the potent RS6 Avant. Speaking earlier this year, Audi of America’s director for product, technology and motorsports communications, Mark Dahncke said the car manufacturer is “actively considering” bringing these Avant models to the U.S.

The A6 Allroad is distinct from other Avant models on a number of levels. For starters, it includes a bespoke exterior with plastic body cladding and is fitted with adaptive air suspension as standard. Depending on the driving mode selected, the car can have as much as 184 mm (7.2-inches) of ground clearance.

    have they not heard that target audience for boring waggons are now buying boring SUVs? they want to reach an untapped market, bring over sporty wagons, they have plenty to choose from S3 and RS3 5 door hatch, A4 avant, S4 avant, RS4 avant…

    Yes, ASAP so I can buy a used one in two years and save a bundle

  • Six_Tymes

    I love the idea, but in 2020? its too late, everyone remains stuck on the SUV craze, and doubtful they would many would move away from it. Because of that, I just don’t see them selling much.

    The market for this class of wagons – the Volvo, RegalTourX and Outback – and on the high end – M-B and BMW wagons – is limited in this age of CUVs/SUVs. Sorry, but probably not worth it. Not Audi, but a non-luxury brand needs to offer a much more affordable wagon to the twenty-somethings (and I don’t mean a $30K+ VW Sportwagen/Alltrack). If it sticks, then, in 20-30 years, they’ll be ready for an A6 Allroad, if the world as we know it, still exists.

  • I was thinking of getting a small SUV, but I just can’t deal with the horrible driving dynamics. I have placed my order for an Arteon SEL R-Line 4-Motion. The hatch back design gives me more than enough of what I need.

    No… I have an A7 and wouldn’t even consider this POS. Either get the A7 or Q7, an A6 Allroad is not needed. The A7’s driving dynamics are fine, this is not 1995. In 2019 an SUV handles fine for what we drive them for.
