Permanent all-wheel drive with a basic distribution of torque of 40 percent at the front and 60 percent at the rear is standard, as is the air suspension with four levels.

245 HP strong V6 diesel accelerates easily

auto motor und sport had the 245 HP strong V6 diesel available for a first impression . This allows the Audi A6 Allroad Quattro to accelerate so smoothly that the question of a more powerful drive hardly arises. Thanks to the long ratio of the seven-speed dual clutch transmission, the six-cylinder only rotates a little over 1,000 rpm when cruising on country roads and can hardly be heard .
