What Volkswagen taketh away with one hand — rest in peace Golf Alltrack — they’re apparently giving with the other. After a long hiatus from the U.S. market, the 2020 Audi A6 Allroad is back. It’s a good complement to the high-performance RS6 Avant, and to the smaller A4 Allroad, complete with updated, rugged styling. The A6 Allroad will go on sale next year.
As ever, what sets the 2002 Audi A6 Allroad apart from the standard wagons is its air suspension. It allows a total ground clearance of 7.3 inches, or 1.8 inches higher than the A6 sedan. From the standard ride height’s 5.5 inches of ground clearance, the driver can either lower or raise the car depending on the drive mode. Dynamic mode will lower the car 0.6 inches from its standard height. Off-road, on the other hand, will raise it 1.6 inches. Lift mode offers the greatest ride height, with an additional 0.6 inches.
The 2020 Audi A6 Allroad comes with a 3.0-liter turbocharged mild hybrid engine as standard fare. As with the standard A6, it manages 335 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque, mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic.
Audi has not announced pricing yet, but there will be an Anniversary Edition model. When it does go on sale, this Gavial Green will be one of the options — a throwback to the original Allroad from 2000. We should have more information available in the coming months.
