The new third-generation A6 Allroad adds the usual assortment of add-ons, including grey plastic flared-guards, stainless steel contact panels at the front and rear, larger roof rails and and a chrome-trimmed grille design.
The beefier guards and extended contact panels make the Allroad a touch larger on the outside than its regular Avant sibling, and the raised suspension makes it 60mm taller.
The suspension utilises an adaptive air-system, lowering the Allroad by 15mm when cruising at high speeds and raising it by 35mm at slower speeds. A selectable lift-mode adds another 10mm to the Allroad's height.
In Europe, the new Allroad will be offered with four turbocharged petrol engines, and three turbodiesel options.
At the top of the petrol range is the Volkswagen Group's 3.0 litre TFSI V6 engine, delivering 231kW and 440Nm of torque. Fuel consumption is listed at 8.9 l/100km and Audi says the 0-100km/h run is wrapped up in 5.9 seconds.
On the diesel front, there are three states of tune for the same 3.0 litre V6 TDI, delivering 152, 182 and, in the case of the top-shelf twin-turbo version, 233kW.
Audi Australia has confirmed with TMR that an Australian debut for the new A6 Allroad has been set for late in 2012, with a launch likely to occur in the third quarter.
