Target Price team says:
The Audi A6 Allroad is a cross between a regular estate and an SUV. Every model comes with four-wheel drive, a 4x4-style bodykit and a little more ground clearance than a standard A6 Avant.
Prices are higher than those of the equivalent Avant, and it comes only with the A6’s largest engines, which will make it dearer still. At least the three engines – all diesels – give strong performance and economy of more than 40mpg.
For us, the 3.0 TDI 245 offers the best combination of pace and running costs. Standard equipment is pretty generous, but we’d add the upgraded sat-nav system for the best resale values. It’s also worth considering one of the service packages, which allow you to pay a monthly fee for all your servicing, thereby spreading your costs.
We’d avoid the optional 20-inch wheels, though. Sure, they look impressive, but they harm comfort and create too much road noise.
