The Next Generation Audi A6 Allroad Passes Road Tests In The Alps
Spies first photographed the 2020 Audi A6 Allroad during tests in the Alps. It will likely be officially unveiled next year. The car will be a rival for the Volvo V90 Cross Country and Mercedes E-Class All-Terrain, the Motor1 reports.
The disguise hides the typical features of the Allroad, such as an extra plastic body cladding, but, having looked closer, the stronger wheel arches can be seen. To understand how the new car looks without masking, it is enough to look at the standard Audi Avant.
The Quattro model will inherit most of the hardware from the standard A6 Avant,as well as a 565-liter trunk. The Avant’s 40: 20: 40 folded rear seats increase the cargo place to 1,680 liters. The same can be expected on the Allroad, but thanks to the raised suspension the car will become more versatile.
In addition to the plastic body cladding, new wheels and increased ride height the models will differ with railing on the roof. This is not conspicuous, but on the Allroad they sit higher, and on the Avant they look sleeker.
The Allroad is not the only A6-based car, which is being tested now. Judging by spy shots, the S6 Avant and RS6 Avant are also in development. Until the end of 2020, all of them should be put into production, following the debut of the standard A6 sedan and A6 Avant earlier this year.
