For 2023, there are two trim levels for the Audi A6 allroad: the Premium Plus and Prestige. The standard specifications for both include a 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 engine that develops 335 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque, a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, and a quattro all-wheel drivetrain.
Starting things off, the Premium Plus is equipped with 20-inch alloy wheels, matrix-design LED headlights, and a panoramic sunroof. The cabin is upholstered in leather and trimmed with wood accents, while tri-zone climate control, and power-adjustable, heated front seats ensure comfort. The infotainment system includes Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, HD Radio, SiriusXM, and a 16-speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system. Driver-assistance features comprise forward collision avoidance, parking sensors, and a surround-view camera.
The specs of the upper-tier A6 allroad model add quad-zone climate control, adaptive cruise control, heated rear seats, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and a head-up display.
When you have cheap options like the Subaru Outback, the high price of the 2023 Audi A6 allroad can seem unappealing. The base-model Premium Plus starts things off at $66,900, while the Prestige asks for $72,400 to unlock all its advanced driver-assistance tech. The Audi A6 allroad's MSRP does not include a destination charge of $1,095.
Looking at competitors for the Audi A6 allroad, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class All-Terrain is probably the main one and it begins at $68,400 for the cheapest 2022 model.
Both configurations of the A6 allroad can be upgraded with options, be it packages or individual features.
The Premium Plus can get access to some of the features found in the Prestige via the $3,250 Executive Package. This comprises quad-zone climate control, power lumbar and power-adjustability for the front passenger seat, ventilation for both front seats, adaptive cruise control, heated rear seats, and ambient LED lighting. Opting for this package requires Audi side assist and Audi pre sense rear too, adding another $500.
The Prestige also gets a package to enhance its standard offering in the form of the $2,850 Luxury Package. This replaces the front seats with individual contour seats that have built-in massage functions, while the passenger seat gets memory settings, and every seating surface is coated in Valcona/Milano leather. Both trims can opt for the Black Optic Package ($1,100), which equips 20-inch five-arm-turbine wheels, black roof rails, contrast paint, and other gloss-black exterior accents.
On the Prestige, some of the advanced individual options are night vision for $2,500 and the upgraded Bang & Olufsen sound system for $4,900.
The starting price of the new Audi A6 allroad wagon is quite high, but you get a lot of value for the money, with loads of standard comfort and safety features. Upgrading to the Prestige doesn't improve comfort at all, and the additional luxuries like soft-closing doors aren't really necessary. That being said, the head-up display is only available at this trim level, as is the remote park assist plus. These are both highly desirable features that many consumers will be willing to spend extra for. Still, you can save a few thousand bucks by opting for the Premium Plus and ticking the box for the Executive Package. With this option, the A6 allroad will cost $71,745 including destination.
