Audi A6 allroad quattro 2006, C6 (06.2006 – 08.2008)

Audi A6 allroad quattro – all-terrain wagon, created on the basis of the Audi A6 Avant. For the first time this modification appeared in 1999. On the creation of a second generation Allroad, Audi announced in spring 2005. The release of the car came in the summer of 2006. From the usual wagon Allroad Quattro differs serial permanent all-wheel drive in combination with air suspension.

The lines of the architecture of the body emphasize the dynamics and power, and such features as the protection of stainless steel under the engine compartment, increased ground clearance, as well as protruding protective covers on the wings in front and behind, openly indicate the off-road capabilities of the car. Powerful rails on four supports make the car more practical. Comfortable accommodation of five passengers is provided by the increased overall length (4.93 m) and the wheelbase (2.83 m). To ensure ergonomics, a multimedia interface (MMI) has been selected as the key element of the control system concept.

The interior of the Audi A6 Allroad Quattro is not only characterized by a high level of equipment, but also by a combination of luxury and aesthetics – this is the responsibility of the new two-color wear-resistant carpet, a rich choice of fabric and upholstery leather colors, decorative inserts of various types of wood, etc. Numerous vehicle functions, such as managing infotainment systems, automatic climate control, and other settings, are performed using the MMI terminal, while the basic version includes a MMI system with a 6.5-inch monochrome display and a CD player with built-in radio, then in its full version – with a 7-inch color monitor, six-disc changer, expensive surround sound system, voice-activated navigation system and a TV tuner.

A6 allroad quattro model was offered with three engines. The 3-liter diesel TDI V6 is equipped with a common rail injection system that produces 240 hp. at 4400 rpm and very impressive pulling force – maximum torque of 500 Nm is available from 1400 rpm. Fuel consumption – 7.1 liters in mixed mode. The three-liter petrol turbo engine TFSI V6 has a power of 335 hp. (6800 rpm), torque of 420 Nm (4850 rpm) and consumption of 9.5 l / 100 km. The most powerful is a 4.2-liter FSI with eight cylinders (V8), 350 hp output. (6800 rpm), torque of 440 Nm (3500 rpm) and 10.2 liters of gasoline consumption per 100 km. All modifications are equipped with a classic Tiptronic automatic gearbox.

Thanks to the standard adaptive air suspension and level adjustment, you can choose four clearance options. At high speeds, ground clearance decreases automatically to reduce air resistance. In this case, adaptive air suspension has five modes of operation, including two modes for off-road driving. In general, the Allroad Quattro chassis is distinguished by a suspension of a new design – it is completely independent, made mainly of aluminum alloys, and provides a high level of maneuverability and safety. Electromechanical parking brake is combined with disc brakes on both axles and serves as a means to facilitate the start of movement, as well as as a function of emergency braking. Machines with six-cylinder engines are standardly equipped with 17-inch alloy wheels with a size of 225/55 R17 and 4.2 FSI with 18-inch wheels with 245/45 R18.

The body of the Audi A6 allroad quattro is made of high strength steels and aluminum alloys. This has significantly reduced weight. At the same time, in this generation Allroad, torsional stiffness was increased by more than 34 percent, which, in addition to improving ride quality, contributes to increased safety. Of particular note is an intelligent passenger protection system, including frontal collision sensors behind the grille, two-stage deployment of airbags (depending on speed), timely activation of seat belt pretensioners. Among other things, the staff of the standard equipment includes the electronic stabilization system of the last generation, including advanced functions of controlling the brake system and special off-road assistance modes.

The A6 allroad quattro may be of interest to those who wish to purchase a luxury all-wheel drive car, but does not set itself the task of choosing a full-size SUV. At the same time, Allroad is characterized by a successful combination of elegance and practicality. The maximum amount of luggage is 1660 liters. Adjustable suspension gives the car enough flexibility in various driving conditions. A high basic level of equipment allows used cars to keep attractiveness for the buyer for a long time. Of the features it can be noted that the numerous applied high-tech solutions require skilled service.

Audi A6 Allroad Quattro C5 (05.2000 – 08.2005)

Audi Allroad c5 model index – all-wheel drive all-terrain.

The most interesting feature of the novelty is the active pneumatic suspension. Automation itself monitors the condition of the road surface and accordingly changes the ground clearance of the car (depending on the speed of movement, this change occurs in steps: at a speed of more than 120 km / h it will be 142 mm, in the range from 80 to 120 km / h the clearance will be 167 mm at a speed of less than 80 km / h, the ground clearance will increase to 192 mm, the maximum clearance of 208 mm will be chosen for low speed travel on a bad road). As well as the four-level air suspension ALLROAD allows the driver himself, by pressing the corresponding button on the dashboard and watching the car’s behavior on the display screen, select a different ride height, increasing it from 142 to 208 mm. For comparison – the BMW X5 has a clearance of 180 mm, and the Mercedes ML – 200 mm, and even the latest Range Rover model exceeds this indicator by only 2 mm. At the same time, Allroad electronically maintains a specific amount of ground clearance regardless of the load on each wheel, i.e. on the number of passengers and the amount of cargo in the car, and thanks to the diaphragm pneumatic elements, a high smoothness of the car is provided. In order to increase traffic safety at ground clearance of 192 and 208 mm, the automatically stabilized body position system will prevent its dangerous roll in bends and longitudinal inclinations during heavy braking. Suspension brackets are assembled on subframes, which are attached to the body through rubber metal supports.

In February 2000, at the Motor Show in Geneva, the model of the first Audi SUV was introduced for the first time, which aims to compete with such models as the Subaru Legacy Qutback, Volvo V70XC and others, including the BMW X5 and Mercedes ML. Allroad SUV model is made on an improved platform Audi A6 Avant.

In general, the exterior design is similar to the design of the five-door wagon Audi A6. Comparing the dimensions, we note that Allroad is 14 mm longer, 42 mm wider and 138 mm higher than the A6 Avant quattro model with a larger 67 mm wheelbase. The body is decorated with polished metal: lining on the lower edges of the doors and panels at the bottom of the bumpers, protecting the plastic from impact. The arches are made in the style of VW Golf first and second generations. Wide tires, wheel arch extender and a more massive bumper with a three-element grille and fog lights give the Allroad a more solid and impressive look. The aggressive protection of the crankcase and rear axle made of corrugated stainless steel, specially exposed to everyone’s view, as well as the aluminum sills on the thresholds leave no chance for those who are off-road.

The interior is also similar to the design of the car Audi A6, the difference lies in the color scheme of the cabin. The control panel is trimmed with plastic, the instruments are equipped with polished rims. Inside, the driver and passengers will feel as comfortable as in the standard A6. According to the creators in the Allroad quattro, five people will feel quite comfortable even on a long journey.

Of course, the car has a permanent drive of all wheels with a central center differential Torsen (locking the cross-axle differentials is simulated by slowing down the skid wheels), disc brakes with ABS and the system of dynamic stabilization of movement EPS. The latter is quite appropriate for a car, the maximum speed of which even with a diesel engine exceeds 200 km / h. Allroad received an additional reduction in the number of gears in the transmission, which significantly increases its traction characteristics in heavy road conditions. Of course, the elements of the Allroad Quattro are good roads, and not a country road at all. However, if necessary, the car can tow a trailer with a full weight of up to 2,300 kg and confidently move along dirt roads.

Audi Allroad is available with two types of engines: a petrol 2.7-liter V6-Biturbo rated at 250 hp, equipped with two turbochargers, and a 2.5-liter V6-TDi turbo diesel engine with direct injection, developing 180 hp. The gearbox has a 5-speed Tiptronic automatic and a 6-speed manual, which can optionally be supplied with a plug-in ‘LOW RANGE’ transmission step. It can be turned on at speeds up to 30 km / h and used for driving at speeds up to 50 km / h. Result: more freedom when driving on terrain with problematic terrain. With a 250 hp engine. the car accelerates to 236 km / h and accelerates from zero to 100 km / h in 7.4 seconds. Subsequently, probably, Allroad will receive also petrol V8.

Equipped with such perfect units and systems, the Audi Allroad Quattro is able to occupy a worthy place among all-wheel-drive vehicles in the booming European off-road market. Allroad is supposed to be produced in quantities up to 20 thousand per year, which should increase the share of all-wheel drive vehicles produced by the company up to 30%.
