The A6 Allroad has supportive seats and there’s plenty of adjustment to help the driver get comfortable. The upper dashboard is refreshingly clutter-free, too. However, the MMI system – which links a rotary control knob and on-screen menus – takes a bit of getting used to because the four function buttons grouped around the dial relate to different commands depending on which menu you’re in at the time.
Audi A6 Allroad space & practicality
There’s plenty of room up front, and the rear seat will take a couple of six-footers. However, the large transmission tunnel and hard central seat make it awkward for a third. The huge boot is well shaped and has lots of practical touches, including straps, lashing points and a rail-based system for securing luggage. The 60/40 split rear seats drop down to extend that space, but they don’t fold completely flat and are heavy to set back upright.
Audi A6 Allroad equipment
As befits a premium product, the Allroad comes well equipped. Every model has adaptive air suspension and a 4x4-style bodykit, with the wheelarches, bumpers and sills finished in a contrasting colour (although they can be body-coloured at extra cost). Inside, you’ll find full leather upholstery, sat-nav, Bluetooth and dual-zone climate control. Front and rear parking sensors are also standard, while the options include adaptive cruise control, DAB radio and a head-up display.
