Audi has introduced the new A6 Allroad Sport with enhanced specification that makes it an even more protective and pampering means of weathering the storms. Audi A6 Allroad Sport can be ordered in a range of three V6 TDI powerplants available with outputs of 216bhp, 269bhp and 316bhp. It is being priced at Rs. 50 Lakhs, while it can be ordered now with deliveries starting soon.
Talking about the exterior advancements, the A6 Allroad comes with new 10-spoke 19-inch alloy wheels with a matt titanium finish, privacy glass and heated and folding mirrors. Inside the cabin, the saloon boasts of sports seats in upgraded Valcona leather with full electric adjustment, which are complemented by luxurious Alcantara door inserts. In addition, there are several exquisite features such as SD card navigation, the Audi Music Interface, powered tailgate operation, the Audi parking system plus and deluxe four-zone air conditioning.
Adaptive air suspension is fitted to every A6 allroad, endowing it with accomplished all-terrain ability but also a cossetting ride quality that absorbs even the harshest of road imperfections. A dynamic or comfort mode can be selected using the Audi drive select system, and the suspension automatically adjusts to reduce aerodynamic drag at speeds above 120kmph by lowering the body by 15 mm. When more ground clearance is required, a lift mode can be engaged at the push of a button, raising ride height by 10 mm. When negotiating more substantial off-road trails, the driver can easily monitor the impressive 20° slope angle and 17° ramp angle capability using the tilt angle display, which can be called up via the central MMI screen. Hill hold assist and hill descent control, which maintains a constant vehicle speed between five and 18 mph, are also standard.
A choice of three EU6-compliant six-cylinder TDI engines power the new A6 allroad quattro in standard and Sport specification. The 216bhp and 268bhp engines are mated to a seven-speed S tronic twin-clutch transmission, while the 316bhp and 650Nm output of the BiTDI is fed to the wheels via an eight-speed tiptronic transmission. The latter ensures brisk performance of only 5.5 seconds to 100kmph and a 250kmph limited top speed. Up to 15.4kmpl is achievable, linked to CO2 output of 172 g/km. Combined fuel efficiency increases to a possible 17.84kmpl for the 216bhp and 18.2kmpl for the 269bhp, while CO2 drops to 149 and 145 g/km respectively.
