2020 The Audi A6 New Model And Performance – 2020 The Audi A6
At continued last, it seems to be a acceptable time to be an Audi wagon fan in America. First Audi alone the account that it will, at last, be sending us the ultimate in banned bake-apple longroofs: the Audi RS6 Avant. Now the affluence cast is attractive to aggrandize the A6 wagon calendar added with the all-new 2020 A6 Allroad, and it alike comes with the signature affection that hopefully won’t be so alarming this time around.
In the aboriginal 2000s, Audi gave us the Allroad 2.7T Quattro. It was a actual air-conditioned car with a biturbo V6, all-wheel-drive, and a fully-adjustable air-suspension that could accord the car a auto ride acme at aerial speeds or lift it up over seven inches aback the altitude alleged for it. These aboriginal Allroads were alike accessible with a chiral transmission.
American Audi fanatics altercate these Allroads with both awe and fear. The turbo V6 could get a bit choosy as the afar added up and usually, it wasn’t a amount of if, but rather when, the air-suspension would abort to accord the Allroad that “slammed” attending continued afore it was fashionable in some circles.
Audi has appear a continued way aback those days, and the all-new 2020 A6 Allroad is aggravating to get a allotment of the flush wagon pie currently active by the Volvo V90 Cross Country—and to a assertive admeasurement the Mercedes E-Class and Jaguar XF Sportbrake.
The new car will allotment agnate apparatus with the adapted A6 auto such as the turbocharged V6 authoritative 335 application and 369 lb-ft of torque. Of course, there will be no three-pedal advantage this time but rather a seven-speed S Tronic dual-clutch automated manual commutual with accepted quattro AWD.
Unlike the A6, the Allroad will accept the aforementioned burden amplitude as the A6 Avant that is absolute to added markets. And the new Allroad brings aback the height-adjustable air abeyance with settings advised for both on and off-road situations.
The Audi columnist absolution break bottomward the settings as follows:
-Auto: provides the best counterbalanced agent and anatomy acknowledgment (5.5 inches of arena clearance)
– Comfort: lighter council feel and smoother burke ascribe makes bland and adequate active (5.5 inches of arena clearance)
– Dynamic: added council feel forth with actual burke responses and adventurous accessory changes (-0.6 inches lower)
-Individual: disciplinarian chooses anniversary ambience according to preference
-Offroad: provides added arena approval ( 1.2 inches) at speeds up to 21.7 mph
– Lift: provides an added 0.6 inches of lift aloft Offroad mode, aback traveling beneath 21.7 mph
Audi says the Allroad, at its best height, sits 1.8 inches college than the A6 auto to accredit added approval over asperous area for a absolute arena approval of 7.3 inches. A aberration of 1.8 inches doesn’t complete like abundant but I assumption if you’re absolutely demography your Allroad on all the roads, some of which aren’t paved, that added approval can pay off.
While the air-suspension in the aboriginal car could ambiguous and costly, I should agenda that agnate wagons such as the V90 and the E450 additionally accept an alternative air-ride suspension.
Pricing has not yet been appear but, I would apprehend the A6 Allroad to backpack a exceptional over the A6 sedan, and that has a starting amount of about $62,000 for the V6 model.
