Audi A6 Allroad Limited Edition (2013)

by Barry Green,reviewed April 2013

Audi says its A6 allroad quattro is ‘a very versatile Avant’ (wagon), pointing to an ability to handle rougher road surfaces, thanks primarily to a host of adjustable ride height settings.



While Cape York is probably out of the question, we suspect potential buyers wouldn’t be put off too much.

Under the bonnet is a 3.0-litre TDI (turbo-diesel) engine, which gets its 180kW of power and massive 580Nm of torque from 1750rpm down on the ground through a seven-speed, dual-clutch S tronic transmission and quattro all-wheel-drive.

Audi claims 0-100km/h in 6.6 seconds, a time we wouldn’t doubt.

Despite this sort of muscle, the ADR fuel consumption average is 6.3 litres/100 km, a significant 16 percent less usage over the previous model.

The three-setting adaptive air suspension results in a quality ride, regardless of road surface. The seats, well shaped and bolstered to support and comfort, offer a diversity of adjustment. And there is space aplenty – 565 litres of capacity with the rear seats in place, 1680 with them folded.

Extra features on the 150-run limited edition to what is already a bristling equipment inventory include special 20” alloy wheels, four-zone airconditioning, choice of four metallic or pearl paint colours, heated front seats, Milano leather seats and tailgate with electric opening and closing function.
