Audi's ruggedised A6 allroad quattro is already the ideal vehicle for surviving modern British family life, but has gained a new trim level to enhance its credentials yet further.
The new Sport specification brings a selection of value-added equipment to the allroad quattro range to add some appeal inside and out.
On the exterior, the Sport adds a new 10-spoke design set of 19-inch alloy wheels with a matt titanium finish. Tinted privacy glass adds to the road presence. On the inside, there's a new set of fully electric sports seats finished in Valcona leather, with Alcantara door inserts.
When night falls, the Sport model's enhancements come into their own. Replacing the standard car's bi-xenon headlights are a set of full LED headlights, enhancing visibility. A high beam assist function automatically dips the main beam so as not to dazzle oncoming traffic, and the rear light clusters gain sweeping dynamic LED indicators.
The driver also gains a head-up display, which puts important information like speed and navigation data directly in the line of sight so you never need take your eyes off the road. Also available is night vision assistant, which alerts the driver to hidden people and animals that even the headlights can't pick up, using thermal imaging.
The Sport remains an A6 allroad at heart though. It retains the same range of 3.0-litre V6 diesel engines - in 218hp, 272hp and 320hp forms - as the standard car, with 7 and 8-speed gearboxes. Audi drive select allows you to lower the body by 15mm at speed to improve drag, or raise it by 10mm at low speeds to improve ground clearance, thanks to the air suspension.
Like the regular allroad, the allroad Sport can tackle slopes of up to 20° and ramps of up to 17°, while hill hold assist will keep you in place and hill descent control will maintain a constant vehicle speed between five and 18 mph on severe slopes.
Pricing of the A6 allroad Sport starts from £49,455, and for more information on the A6 allroad range, please click here: https://www.inchcapeaudi.co.uk/cars/audi-range/a6/a6-allroad/
