Introduction

What Car? says...

Here’s a scenario: you’re a relatively well-off businessman with an adventurous soul and a family, and you’re looking for a new car combining luxury with space and some off-road ability. Instead of the default – an SUV – how about the Audi A6 Allroad?

It can tow a horsebox through a muddy field or take you to your favourite hiking spot while still cutting the mustard as it sits on your driveway or in the company car park. And because it’s not a glitzy large SUV, it shows you don't follow the crowd.

The A6 Allroad is based on the Audi A6 Avant estate and, as the name implies, is designed to conquer those rough tracks that are off-limits to regular estate cars. It’s been tweaked to provide increased ground clearance – handy for crossing fords – and comes with Audi’s quattro four-wheel drive as standard.

Buyers get a choice of Sport or Vorsprung trim, and there are three 3.0-litre V6 engines available: a petrol and two diesels of various power outputs. All the engines have mild hybrid technology to help enhance their efficiency, and other gizmos include semi-autonomous driving (borrowed from the pricier Audi A8). 

So, how does it compare with its rivals – or should we say 'rival'? If you want a large, off-road-inspired estate car, the only alternative is the Volvo V90 Cross Country, but you could be weighing up the regular BMW 5 Series Touring too. We’ll let you know how it compares with those cars, and outline which engine and trim combination makes the most sense for the A6 Allroad.

Whichever car you decide on – whether it's a new Audi A6 Allroad, one of its competitors or another make and model of vehicle, head over to the free What Car? New Car Buying service to see how much you could save. There are lots of Audi A6 Allroad deals to check out.
