8th May, 2015

The Audi A6 Allroad quattro has been refreshed, with design changes, a new engine, technology innovations and a sharp new price of $111,900* (MLP*).

Since the first Audi allroad quattro arrived in 2001, this unique model has won over Australian customers by virtue of its distinctive styling and versatility.

In keeping with the rest of the A6 range, the new A6 allroad quattro has a new front grille, headlight design, side sills, rear-end treatment and interior lay out.

At the front of the new A6 allroad quattro is the standard LED headlights. Also available are the optional Matrix LED units, which offers an incredible level of forward vision at night-time, without blinding other motorists. Dynamic turning indicators at the front and rear are also available across the range Ė a real safety advancement in low-visibility conditions.

The new high-resolution Driver Information System (DIS) sits in between the speedometer and tachometer readouts, and can display crystal-clear map-based navigation right in the driverís natural field of vision. This intelligent ergonomic innovation from Audi is powered by the new-generation MIB2 infotainment system, which itself is driven by the latest Nvidia Tegra 30 quad-core processor.

The all-new 3.0 V6 TDI diesel engine produces a healthy 160kW of power and 500Nm of torque. Fuel consumption is rated at 5.6 L/100km, thanks to a number of fuel efficiency technologies like the new-generation start-stop programme, advanced thermal management and the seven-speed S tronicís freewheeling mode.

The implementation of these technologies comes as the result of progress by Audi engineers to ensure the new A6 engine range exceeds the EU6 criteria.

Power is distributed to all four wheels by Audiís quattro permanent all-wheel drive system, which under normal driving conditions directs 60 per cent of engine to the rear wheels and 40 per cent to the front. It can also redistribute the power immediately if necessary Ė up to 70 per cent to the front axle or as much as 85†per cent to the rear.

The perfect partner for quattro all-wheel drive is torque vectoring, an intelligent software function of the ESC electronic stabilisation control. Upon detecting wheel slip on either inside wheel during cornering, the ESC unit precisely brakes the wheel concerned, which causes excess torque to flow to the outside wheel.
