Audi A6 Allroad
The Audi A6 Allroad is a truly versatile crossover car that offers the best characteristics of an SUV and estate in one fantastic package. With its rugged and durable nature, Quattro 4 wheel drive system and solid off road ability, it’s also incredibly competent on road and has a monstrous interior. Able to handle pretty much anything that comes its way, the Allroad is perfect for executives who like to have fun at weekends with the family.
First introduced in 1999, the Allroad fits nicely between the regular A6 estate and the Q7 SUV. This car proves that going bigger doesn’t necessarily mean getting something better, and actually it’s hugely practical and hardy in its own right. It’s designed to be a flexible solution for adventurous people but also a superbly refined and composed on road car. While the ground clearance allows it to head into the rough stuff, it’s not the kind of car you’d try to tackle the most arduous terrain with, and it knows that. With its Quattro setup, it’s got more than enough grip in all types of conditions, so icy British winters pose no problem at all.
This is a car that looks like somebody has stuck a bicycle pump in the exhaust pipe of the regular A6 and had a really good go. It’s inflated for sure, but not to a silly extent, and actually it’s rather handsome. The rugged front end and all around side skirts give the impression it could take on anything and come out on top. As a modern day Audi, the interior is sumptuous, high tech and exquisitely designed. High quality materials are everywhere, and the equipment list is pretty extensive. A gargantuan amount of cabin space with seating for 5, plus a huge boot, mean it’s able to accommodate anything from shopping to camping equipment.
Despite the ‘off road’ setup, the Audi is wonderful to drive on regular tarmac, and feels pretty similar to the regular A6- comfortable, surefooted and confident. The 4x4 system makes it corner well, and the precise steering means you can really get to grips with it easily. As a long distance cruiser it’s absolutely superb, but can also handle towns and country roads too. Some powerful engines mean there’s no lack of performance; the 2.7 and 3.0 litre turbo diesels, as well as the 3.2 litre V6 and 4.2 litre V8 petrol are particularly incredible.
Not really a car to buy brand new for those without some cash, you can find a wealth of great deals pre owned here at Motors.co.uk. With one of the best ranges of second hand cars for sale around, it’s incredibly easy to get hold of exactly the car you want with minimal effort. With a used Audi A6 Allroad, you’ll pay significantly less thanks to some huge price reductions and best of all quality will be almost like new for the most part.
The simple fact is that the A6 Allroad is a perfect option for those people who want all the functionality and practicality of an SUV in a regular sized car. The crossover estate really does exactly what it says on the box with gusto, and never fails to impress. It’ll go through pretty much all types of weather with ease, and get stuck in off road too. If cruising in comfort and style is your aim, this is the perfect steed.
