2020 Audi A6 Allroad Prestige – The Affordable Tech Rich Cruiser

By  | 

The 2020 Audi Allroad happens to be one of the two latest wagons that the company has brought to the US in 2020. The other is the RS6 Avant. However, what makes the 2020 Audi Allroad stand out from its brethren is the fact that it’s stocked with all types of hardware coupled with an outrageous design which begs the question why did Audi take it to this extreme?

Apparently, the 2020 Audi Allroad shares much of its mechanical prowess with the A6, with an identical interior. However, the question is how much different is the Allroad and does it make a positive impact on driving comfort? That’s what we set out to answer in this review.

Party in The Cabin 

The Allroad is loaded with all manner of tech most apparent inside the cabin, with the infotainment system, and a Virtual Cockpit with a 12.3-inch screen in front of the driver. The Virtual Cockpit is perhaps one of the techiest, nerdy designs we’ve seen in a car with gauge clusters thrown around, coupled with brightly colored Google Earth mapping and loads of other information. In fact, we can safely say that only going by the Virtual Cockpit; the A6 Allroad has more tech as compared to most luxury cars.

In the center you will find the MMI Touch Response, that has a 10.1-inch screen, and a smaller 8.6 inches one below. The one on the top has all the regular infotainment systems, like Apple CarPlay, Wi-Fi hotspot, and Android Auto.

The one below it functions as a control panel for things like the vehicle’s climate control settings, and driver-assist amongst loads of other features. Plus, the second display can also be turned into a fully functioning keyword to search presumably for your next destination.

Engine and Driving Pleasure 

The 2020 Audi Allroad is offered with a 3.0-litre turbo V6, that’s the same its less tech-reliant A6, producing a pretty decent 335 HP, and 369-lb/ft of torque. The 7-speed dual-clutch transmission is smooth as you’d expect, and in all honesty, that subtle kick you feel as it gets into first gear is part of the driving experience at least we enjoyed.

However, the real star of the show has to be the 48-volt mid-hybrid tech, that smooths out aspects of driving the vehicle like stopping and starting, plus provides a supplemental boost when needed. That boost is evident from the 0-60mph time of 5.1 seconds.

The adaptive suspension makes the Allroad immensely comfortable to drive when compared to the regular A6. Regardless of whether it is city driving, or cruising at highway speeds, the Allroad is a dream to drive with the 20-inch wheels giving it the required ground clearance even to make it through rocky and poked roads.

Final Verdict 

The Audi A6 Allroad is an excellent car and has all the positive attributes of the regular A6 sedan but with added functionality. It is the perfect daily driver and will perform well for weekend warriors alike. It is for these and many other reasons why it’s hard not to recommend the A6 Allroad!
