Review Audi A6
Audi’s midsize car is taller, wider, and even nicer.
I agree with the rule that says buy a wagon rather than an SUV. The ride and handling is in your favor, the load area is not high … you get visuals.
Audi has a good reputation for SUVs, but it has a solid foothold in the payload race with Avant’s A4 and A6 series.
Last week, with the launch of the updated A6 wagon last weekend, the regular midsize wagon favors a “Allroad” quattro with slightly higher travel height and front alloy shields and behind.
Formerly a limited edition variant, the $ 111,900 Allroad now comes with the fast-paced RS6 Avant as wagon options.
Audi Australia is considering adding a twin-turbocharged diesel wagon but is still weighing the numbers to see if it can justify the additional variant. It is expected that the model will reach nearly $ 150,000 if it is approved.
It’s not hard to appreciate the space in the A6 from any of the seats. It’s hard to justify its superiority compared to an Audi-branded SUV like the Q5 or Q7 and this is one of the reasons the Allroad will remain a suitable vehicle.
Audi dropped the price tag of $ 6000 to $ 111,900 – roughly $ 20,000 more than the Q7 turbo diesel and a whopping $ 34,000 for the more entertaining SQ5. So it’s not hard to see why so many buyers attract SUVs.
For enthusiasts, the A6 Allroad has an impressive range of standard equipment and an equally impressive list of options for personalizing your premium vehicle. Standard equipment includes four-zone climate control, rear assist, 10-speaker audio, digital radio, satellite and adaptive air suspension.
The A6 Allroad won’t win any awards for steering accuracy or haptic feedback
Here’s how to set up and forget driving. The A6 Allroad won’t win any awards for steering accuracy or haptic feedback. It will win acclaim for the way it simply continues with the job of transporting occupants from point A to point B, regardless of the surface condition.
The adaptive air suspension adjusts the ride height and damping force depending on speed and conditions. The signature quattro all-wheel-drive system and Audi’s resin-clad wheel arches and alloy apron suddenly start to look more positional than poseur.
Dust resistance on the dirt roads of the Northern Territory is a top priority, as is the ability to insulate sound from rocks thrown up under Audi vehicles.
It is the same at home on the highways. Wind noise is very weak and the A6 feels easy as it moves at 130km / h as the suspension – supple after the rains recorded moments ago – hardens to accommodate the surge. speed.
This wagon has a position in the luxury entertainment market that its competitors have yet to match
The Allroad comes equipped with many of Audi’s driving modes but the default auto setting will do most of the job. The throttle, steering system and drivetrain all adapt to the driver’s input.
Downhill control and stability control are standard, and there’s a screen to show side and vertical angles when crossing hills.
The bank balance is the only sacrifice buyers have to make with the A6 Allroad.
With more space and less body roll than most SUVs, this wagon has a position in the luxury entertainment market that its rivals have yet to match.
At a glance
The price of the sticker is $ 111,900 down by $ 6,000. Metallic paint color increases by $ 2280 and there’s a $ 4800 “Technik Package” with adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking and a 360-degree camera.
A faster, higher resolution graphics card powering retractable multimedia displays and driver display screens, lane departure and blind spot warnings as standard, and LED headlights road lighting.
Output drops to 160kW / 500Nm but lower weight means improved performance and fuel economy on the outgoing model at 7.3 seconds and 5.6L / 100km, respectively. Torque is up from a low of 1250 rpm and the seven-speed automatic doesn’t have to scramble to find the right gear.
The Allroad is a refined road on land or runways. It rewards frequent drivers with a predictable, secure ride and a high-quality workplace. All-wheel drive and stable off-road control give it a lot more potential than most buyers would feel comfortable doing.
Reflecting the sedans, the wagon features a distinct Audi grille and dynamic rear turn indicators that light up from inside to outside of the strip lights. Walnut decorations are currently standard coatings; alloy finishing is an inexpensive option.
