Audi reveals the production version of its second-generation Allroad at Geneva

8 Mar 2006

THOSE expecting a fresh interpretation of Audi’s A6 wagon-based Allroad 4WD will be disappointed at this all-new model unveiled in final production guise at Geneva, which relies heavily on the styling themes of the old version.

In Europe, four direct-injection engines will be available: two petrol and two diesels. The petrol duo comprise a 188kW 3.2 FSI V6 and 257kW 4.2 FSI V8. FSI technology increases the power and efficiency of both powerplants.

The V6 turbo-diesels are the latest common-rail injection engines and develop 132kW in the 2.7-litre variant and 171kW in the 3.0-litre. Power is transmitted by a six-speed manual transmission or six-speed automatic with a sequential-manual shift mode.

The Allroad is 4930mm long and sits on a wheelbase of 2830mm, with room enough for five passengers and luggage space that expands up to 1660 litres. The load area has a variety of intelligent stowage ideas while Audi claims the interior conveys an ambience of "elegant sportiness".

The car’s ESP system has been developed especially to cope with off-road demands.

Audi Australia expects the Allroad to arrive early next year, with pricing and specifications yet to be confirmed.
