The Audi A6 Allroad Wagon has been conspicuously absent in US markets, but that’s all changing with Audi’s recent announcement that the long-roofed wagon will be returning to the shores of the US for 2020.
When it hits US shores, US buyers will discover what European buyers already know—this is a rugged wagon that is performance oriented. The Wagon comes with Audi’s 335 horsepower 3.0-liter turbo V6 with 369 lb-ft of torque. The engine also comes with a hybrid system with a 48-volt battery system mounted under the cargo floor. The transmission is a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic with Audi’s Quattro all-wheel drive system standard. It also features hill descent control, tilt angle assist, and all-wheel steering.
Audi is also dressing the Wagon up with 20-inch alloy wheels that connect to a specially calibrated air suspension that features six modes. In Auto and Comfort modes, the Allroad has 5.5 inches of ground clearance, but when you switch to Dynamic, the car drops 0.6 inches. If you’re heading off-road, you can bump into Off-road mode and get an additional 1.2 inches of ground clearance. If you need even more height, Lift mode will take you up and additional 0.6 inches, but only at speeds up to 21.7 miles per hour. All told, at its highest, the Allroad has 7.3 inches of ground clearance. Audi is also adding in a panoramic sunroof as well as interior ambient lighting and a Bang & Olufsen 3D audio system.
There’s also an anniversary edition that will feature a Gavial Green paint job that recalls the Highland Green color from 2000. The upholstery is Sarder Brown Valcona leather that has Fine Nappa accents. You ‘ll also find fine grain ash natural wood for accents and stainless steel pedals and footrest.
No word on what Audi will be charging for the Wagon in the US, but in Europe, the A6 Allroad Wagon goes for €61,500.
