Audi Canada is pleased to announce the world debut of the 2020MY Audi A6 allroad quattro. 20 year since the original global debut and 16 years since it was last sold in Canada, the A6 allroad quattro will be returning to the Canadian market.
With standard all-wheel drive and adaptive air suspension with variable ground clearance, the A6 allroad quattro is at home in any environment. The distinctive look and extensive equipment round out the multifaceted talents of the A6 allroad quattro.
The adaptive air suspension with controlled damping comes standard in the Audi A6 allroad quattro and was tuned specifically for the A6 allroad to boost its off-road capabilities. It adjusts the ride height depending on the road speed and the selected mode set in the Audi drive select system. In auto and comfort modes, the A6 allroad quattro sets off at standard ride height with a ground clearance of 139 mm (5.5 in), which can be automatically adjusted with active speed-dependent control. If the highest ride height is selected and the speed does not exceed 35 km/h, the body is raised 45 mm (1.8 in). The body is lowered automatically when this speed is exceeded. At highway speeds above 120 km/h (74.6 mph), the ride height is lowered by 15 millimeters (0.6 in). If the A6 allroad quattro sets off in offroad mode, which covers speeds up to 80 km/h (49.7 mph), the body is 30 millimeters (1.2 in) higher than the standard ride height. Traveling at very slow speeds below 35 km/h (21.7 mph), lift mode adds another 15 millimeters (0.6 in), raising the ground clearance 45 millimeters (1.8 in) above the normal position.
In addition to the specially adapted suspension, the A6 allroad quattro offers additional comfort features including standard hill descent control and tilt angle assist that allow it to take off-road terrain in its stride. When negotiating light terrain, the driver can call up a display on the MMI monitor, which shows the current tilt angle in the longitudinal and transverse directions �" where the vehicle is at risk of tipping over, a warning appears. On a steep slope the hill descent control limits the speed in the range of 2 to 30 km/h to a figure defined by the driver and brakes all four wheels selectively and individually as necessary. On loose surfaces the system provides an additional braking wedge in front of the wheel by using a special ABS brake function. In the Audi drive select offroad mode, all the relevant dynamic handling systems through to stabilization control are tailored to off-road conditions.
The A6 allroad quattro features an undeniably striking off-road style with its wide wheel arch trims, painted in scandium grey, emphasizing its robust character. The wide, low Singleframe grille with its vertical aluminum struts dominates its front end while the blade and the underbody protection in aluminum finish add a distinct look.
The interior of the A6 allroad quattro is a luxurious and quiet as expected from an Audi A6 family member and is available with Valcona leather seats with heat, ventilation and massage functions.
The A6 allroad quattro is equipped in Canada with the 3.0L TFSI engine with Audi�TMs mild hybrid technology (MHEV), which makes driving even more efficient. The belt alternator starter as the central MHEV component recovers up to 8 kW of power during braking and feeds the electricity into a separate lithium-ion battery with a capacity of 10 Ah. The new Audi A6 allroad quattro can coast from under 22km/h with the engine switched off using the improved start-stop mode.
The A6 allroad quattro features the same extensive infotainment range found in its A6 and A7 sister models with available Virtual Cockpit plus and standard Audi connect Navigation and Infotainment and Audi connect Security and Assistance systems.
