While wagons generally have a lot of power on tap, they are not designed to be high-performance vehicles. Still, the performance specs of the Audi A6 allroad will be good enough for most. The turbocharged six-cylinder under the hood gets a boost from a mild-hybrid system to develop 335 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque, which is enough to accelerate the Audi A6 allroad from 0-60 mph in just 5.4 seconds. The standard quattro all-wheel drivetrain helps keep the vehicle poised during this and offers superb traction during spirited driving or when dealing with slippery road conditions. Sadly, Audi has not given an official towing rating for the off-road wagon and this applies to both trim levels.
While most automakers are resorting to turbocharger four-pot or pure electric powertrains, the Audi A6 allroad still uses a six-cylinder engine. It displaces 3.0 liters and uses a turbocharger to achieve outputs of 335 hp and 369 lb-ft. A seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission manages these outputs and sends them to the quattro all-wheel drivetrain.
Power delivery never feels lacking, though the transmission can struggle to find the right gear when you suddenly demand more effort to climb a hill or overtake on the highway. Around town, the wagon breezes between traffic lights with little effort.
|Audi A6 allroad Trims||Audi A6 allroad Engines||Audi A6 allroad Horsepower||Audi A6 allroad Transmissions||Audi A6 allroad Drivetrains||Audi A6 allroad MPG/MPGE|
|Premium Plus TFSI quattro||3.0L Turbo V6 Gas||335 hp @ 5000 rpm||7-Speed Automatic||AWD||24 MPG|
|Prestige TFSI quattro||3.0L Turbo V6 Gas||335 hp @ 5000 rpm||7-Speed Automatic||AWD||24 MPG|
The mpg ratings for the A6 allroad are not remarkable, but this is a heavy vehicle with a powerful 3.0L V6. It only manages 21/30/24 mpg across the city/highway/combined cycles. To make up for the A6 allroad's average gas mileage, the fuel tank can hold an impressive 19.3-gallon tank. This allows the wagon to travel a very respectable 463 miles between refueling stops.
