Audi A6 Allroad Returns To America Next Year

Wagon lovers rejoice as Audi has confirmed the A6 Allroad is returning to America next year.

Set to arrive 20 years after the first-generation wagon, the 2020 A6 Allroad follows in the footsteps of the European variant which was introduced this summer.

As a result, the model has a rugged appearance as it features an Alu-optic skid plate, an Allroad-specific grille and 20-inch alloy wheels. The wagon will also come equipped with matte scandium gray body cladding, but body-colored components will also be available.

Detailed specifications will be announced closer to launch, but Audi said the wagon will come nicely equipped with a panoramic sunroof, a Bang & Olufsen premium audio system and an LED ambient lighting package. The company also said we can expect the same “extensive infotainment range and driver assistance systems that can be found in the A6 sedan.” This means there should be a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, a 10.1-inch infotainment system and a lower 8.6-inch display.

The US-spec model will be powered by a turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine that produces 335 hp (250 kW / 340 PS) and 369 lb-ft (500 Nm) of torque.   It will be paired to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and a quattro all-wheel drive system.

While the powertrain carries over the A6, the A6 Allroad has an adaptive air suspension that is designed for off-road use.  It provides up to 7.3 inches (185 mm) of ground clearance but, most the time, the wagon has 5.5 inches (140 mm) of ground clearance. Speaking of off-roading, the model also has hill descent control, tilt angle assist and dynamic all-wheel steering.

There’s no word on pricing, but Audi also announced plans to bring the Anniversary Edition stateside.  It features an exclusive Gavial Green exterior as well as Sarder brown leather seats.  Other highlights include stainless steel pedals, fine grain ash wood trim and a leather airbag cap with contrast stitching.

    Good news. This plus the RS6 Avant should give Audi a slight boost.

    An All-Road with 20′ wheels… should be renamed the “All Paved Roads”. Realistically, it shouldn’t have anything larger than an 18.

    The grille is too wide for everything except the RS models. They need to find a balance.

      The width of the grille doesn’t bug me as much as the Hannibal Lecter chrome grille slats do.

    Supposedly a rugged offroad vehicle, but leather seats means just another luxo-barge.
