On some Vaca this is chasing cars and this is just about the most traditional Audi that you can buy in Estrella the A. 6 allroad wagon it’s not meant to be sporty it’s not an S. or an R. S. car instead this is a laid back luxurious family car for people that really just going to want an S. U. V. and I personally count myself among that set so this car really is a bit of me so what is this it’s an A. 6 wagon you can’t get that in Australia anymore apart from the go super fast R. A. C. X. I. does have a little bit of a lift but it’s on is suspension so when you’re on the highway it’s really low I’ve got it right Houston to override setting he is so you can see how high you can get under the bonnet
is a V. 6 diesel and not a very traditional non sporty powertrain it’s a laid back it’s torquey and it’s fuel efficient so what’s not to like the good stuff continues inside the new A. 6 or just well where the interior is Audi’s brand new design and everything feels really high quality when I say traditional obviously you know Audi you think of the Audi quattro and because like that back in the day obviously a lot of station wagon isn’t really traditional in that sense I mean traditional in the sense that this is a a very European luxury car kind of idea a big station wagon yes it has a bit of cladding and all wheel drive system but it isn’t an S. U. V. A. nor is it sort of claim to be one and I like that inside the cabin is very passenger car you don’t actually see that high driving position isn’t particularly high it feels like a classical wagon we have a very nice interior so we have allergies new interior design new technology concepts with stocks touch screens.
here really the love it or you hate it I’m personally warming to it although I do occasionally miss the rotary dial that used to sit between the seats but we’ll have a big virtual cockpit that looks great and shows. You a full match them on on the internet connected.out right there in front of you now this particular car which is Gabby will green outside gorgeous color is matched to chocolate brown leather and you can really kind of go crazy if you want on the specification of an Audi like this because not only is the regular pallet pretty decent in tens of the amount of colors you can choose from you also have an Audi exclusive which isn’t that expensive and lets you choose pretty much any exterior and interior color you’d like.
The seeds themselves are really supportive comfortable I do have our trip down the camera in this thing and I arrived feeling very refreshed they’re only hated I think ventilation and massage on top of that would be really great but you know there’s a slim pickings for negatives aren’t they this is a practicality it’s okay this is a big cost so Alden in storage I would actually expect to be better there’s only 2 small Cup holders between the seats really shallow box here we find the wireless smartphone charging and there are fairly small they will be in centers of places to put stuff there’s not a huge amount of options here up front the good thing.
the material qualities nice creamy leather on the wheel and on the shift off only does it’s okay it’s not full level you can option that if you want to really I think it’s 6 figures that should be standard but they got to check out the backseat. Now these back doors open nice and wide. And if you’ve got baby seats. They can be really easy to fit because the isofix points are exposed here and because the A. 6 or A. doesn’t sit through le you went after the end of it too much to feed them which is good but space in the back is very generous even for adults I’m 6 foot headroom is totally fine despite the fact we have a jewel pane sunroof legroom
is great and Terry muse all right sorry you will notice the massive transmission tunnel here which means that the fifth state is very difficult to use regularly so it’s kind of like a big 4 seater this call we have lots of nice amenities events 2 more USB ports and a 12 volt socket. Blinds in the doors so you don’t have to feel awful off the market ones end of flip down arm rest here with 2 Cup holders and also some flock lined soft storage tubes so all in all it’s a pretty comfy place to spend time and that bench is angled often is fairly supportive as well so I do think you could sit in the back of this for a few hours and quite comfortable with.
Now the A. 6 all right based on the A. 6 avant wagon is a large estate ka and that means it has a generously lodge boots as well hello tailgate is standard and opens to reveal a really considerable amount of space here and a really well thought out the festival the flat floor here so you’re going to slide thing straightened out we do have a bit of crime garnish to protect your paint work we have a needed area off to the side remote releases to drop the back seats down flat shopping bag hooks adjustable tie down points ends beneath the floor here we also have a space saver spare so you have some decent peace of mind if you’re gonna take the A. 6 allroad country touring which to me is kind of the point in a vehicle like this.
it’s right at home in the countryside as we’ll find out shortly but I also want to point out the absence of any black pack or anything like that on the Scott County notice that the small amount of bias there offer the A. 6 all right off your traditional luxury costly is he’s a bright work nice cry in the selection of the Sausal traditional colors light is great and well that just goes straight to my tastes. Yes it’s already started on a high let’s see if the experience pans out behind the wheel. Sir what’s the Audi A. 6 allroad lock from behind the wheel well in a lot of ways it’s just like Audi’s all the A. 6 models so it’s sophisticated it’s refined it’s luxurious and it’s comfortable but there are elements of the wavy a 6 or 8 proceeds down the road he caught getting any of that Audi A. 6 and part of that is the diesel engine this is now the only days away 60 you can get heat Estrella which is kind of amazing given that you know 10 years ago D.
ease it was a huge part of the range of the Audi A. 6 in the city it costs the BMW 5 series but the development of petrol engines has meant that most people that want the sedan versions will choose a tornado or a 3 liter petrol and of course the R. S. 6 is a full late a petrol V. 8 Barry knows that use this little slice of the market but still want more or less a traditional wagon yes the order does way at some cladding but that’s about it in every other sense it is a station wagon and I know that this slice of the market still sees the value in a refined 6 cylinder diesel engine and so that’s what we’ve got he in the A. 6 all right which is a 45 TDI engine as Audi coals it’s that’s a a low power 6 cylinder diesel producing 183 kilowatts of power and 600 Newton meters of torque.
so it’s not a lot of power in a traditional sense of that phrase but Audi do sell a 6 cylinder diesels in 50 TI and then also in Audi sport form as well so this one is really quite on the stressed the 3 late at unit only has one set by. And so you just get a sense of it being a really really laid back powertrain as heaps of told when you want it and I usually fall into the diesel it’s actually quite happy to raise but most of the time you just sit back and enjoy the you know really relaxed sensation of Tolkien muscularity from the A. 6 Ole every listen.
We can see that it’s a days old but because it’s got sick so it is it’s pretty refined as far as diesels guy and the noise it makes certainly isn’t TA truck deal knowing. And the big payoff on surprisingly is fuel economy which is really great say on a highway around you’ll easily be able to get about 6.5 latest 0 climate is out of the A. 6 away despite the fact this is a a big full size car and even around town and you’ll struggle to get that figure above 10 latest 0 and of course if you go for a a 6 cylinder petrol with this car in the sedan version than those a few days that you want to really be able to match so for some people especially people that do long distances in the country a days old can still make sense and this is the Audi passenger car for them it is also the only Audi passing you caught where you can get a 6 cylinder diesel out without having to step up to an S. U. V.
so it of course you can get Q. 5 and Q. 7 and Q. 8 suites V. 6 diesels but you can’t get in a 4 or a 5 or 86 with the days of you can get in at 8 but that’s a limo and really on the radar of nice people that are looking for a cada drive privately apart from a very very select few. In terms of ride and handling as well the A. 6 all right he’s pretty impressive it’s you know call lack much more so than an SUV because it is a call it sits lower to the ground meaning it has better agility is not having to shift so much mass shooting across the center of gravity that’s quite high instead it’s nice and low and so that means that when you show the A. 6 already country right it’s quite happy to play ball.
That being said if I was going to order this calm myself I would definitely stick with the standard 20 inch wheels this guy is wearing the optional 20 ones that come with the premium plus package and that’s an attractive package but the wheels introduced quite a bit of harshness of the ride and the main vitamins that I find that he’s you he’s actually in the country when you are trying to press on a bit and enjoy the the A. 6 or it’s pleasant dynamics they just tend to lump and found 3 bombs in a bit of an unbecoming and on luxurious manna say stick with the twenties let the bed and ride quality and it will actually make a lot of work of country roads to
. While you’re doing all that you’ll be benefiting from piece of safety tech so this car has a lot of tech so we’ve got a baby hi speed a bay of course it pastry and cyclist detection lane keep assist we have blind spot monitoring front and rear cross traffic alert 360 degree camera so you really feel like it’s a high technology vehicle.
Says my detailed opinions of the new Audi A. 6 all right this wagon isn’t for everybody out he knows that and that’s fine they have the Q. 5 and Q. 7 for people that want an S. U. V. all about peace shape and size to me though the traditional wagon still has so many benefits that call like handling the really great efficiency from the V. 6 diesel and this is the lost Audi passenger car the thing get a V. 6 days away and without having to go to an S. U. V. and of course the beautiful beautiful looks of this car design subjective but I reckon this one is particularly easy on the eye you can let me know what you think about the A. 6
