Thinking of leasing a Audi A6 Allroad?

The U.S. News Best Price Program saves users an average of $3,206 off the MSRP, and a lower price equals lower monthly lease payments. That means you could see a savings of $90 a month on a 36-month lease.

Is the Audi A6 Allroad a Good Wagon?

Yes, the Audi A6 Allroad is a good wagon. It has arguably the nicest interior in the class, with top-notch materials, plush seats, plenty of space, and lots of intuitive technology. This Audi impresses on the road as well. It handles well, it provides a cushioned ride, and its turbocharged V6 engine packs a punch. Most other wagons get better fuel economy, but that's about the only blemish on the A6 Allroad's resume.

The A6 Allroad is based on the Audi A6 sedan, which we cover in a separate review.

Should I Buy the Audi A6 Allroad?

If it's in your budget, then yes, the A6 Allroad should be one of your top choices in the wagon class. But that budget bit is a big "if" because this Audi's price tag sits well beyond many of its classmates', even other luxury offerings like the Volvo V60 and V90.

Should the A6 Allroad's starting price prove too high, you may instead want to check out the smaller A4 Allroad. The Volvo V90 and Mercedes-Benz E-Class wagon are fine alternatives as well.

Should I Buy a New or Used Audi A6 Allroad?

The 2020 A6 Allroad is a new addition to Audi's current lineup, so there aren't any used models available.

Audi A6 Allroad Versus the Competition

Which Is Better: Audi A6 Allroad or Audi A4 Allroad?

The Audi A4 Allroad joins its fellow Audi atop our wagon rankings, but your personal preference will determine which is better. The A4 Allroad is like a smaller version of the A6 Allroad, and it costs substantially less, with a starting price roughly $20,000 below the A6 Allroad's.

Both have outstanding interiors and lengthy features lists, and both are capable of some light off-roading. The larger A6 provides more rear-seat space and more cargo room. It also has a stronger engine, though the A4 gets better gas mileage and still has plenty of power.

Which Is Better: Audi A6 Allroad or Volvo V90?

The Volvo V90 isn't quite as well-rounded as the Allroad, but it's still a good choice in this class. These wagons each have sumptuous cabins and two rows of spacious, comfortable seats. The Audi has more cargo space and a more powerful engine, but the Volvo gets better gas mileage and comes with more driver assistance features. Both provide smooth rides, but the Allroad handles better. The Volvo's starting price sits about $15,000 below the Audi's, which will undoubtedly be a key factor for many shoppers.

Which Is Better: Audi A6 Allroad or Mercedes-Benz E-Class Wagon?

The Mercedes-Benz E-Class wagon is a variant of the E-Class sedan, but it's not quite as good as the Audi A6 Allroad. Both wagons have standard all-wheel drive, lots of tech features, and high-quality cabins with comfortable seats. The E-Class wagon has more cargo space, but the A6 Allroad has a more user-friendly infotainment system.

The Mercedes features a twin-turbo V6 that's a bit more powerful than the Audi's engine, but the Allroad has nimbler handling. Price is a wash, as the Mercedes-Benz is one of the few wagons that rival the Audi's starting price (the Benz costs $200 more). And in case you're interested, there's also a high-performance Mercedes-AMG E-Class wagon, which features a 603-horsepower twin-turbo V8.

A6 Allroad Interior

How Many People Does the A6 Allroad Seat?

The A6 Allroad seats five people. Whether you're up front or in the back, you'll find that the A6 Allroad's seats are comfortable and supportive, and they provide plenty of head- and legroom for adult passengers.

A6 Allroad and Child Car Seats

There are two full sets of LATCH connectors for installing child safety seats.

A6 Allroad Interior Quality

The A6 Allroad has one of the most decadent interiors in the class. It's stylish and replete with premium materials, so it looks and feels exactly the way a luxury vehicle should. It also does a great job insulating occupants from outside noise.

A6 Allroad Cargo Space

Wagons are expected to provide plenty of cargo space even with a full complement of passengers, and this Audi hits the mark with 30 cubic feet of room behind the rear seats. That's one of the largest cargo holds in the class. The rear seats fold down to help you haul large items, but Audi has not released data regarding the A6 Allroad's maximum cargo capacity.

A6 Allroad Infotainment, Bluetooth, and Navigation

The Allroad's standard infotainment system includes a dual-display touch-screen interface (a 10.1-inch upper screen for entertainment functions and an 8.6-inch lower screen primarily for climate controls), Bluetooth, four USB ports, a Wi-Fi hot spot, a 16-speaker Bang & Olufsen audio system, satellite radio, HD Radio, wireless device charging, navigation, Android Auto, and Apple CarPlay.

Other standard features include a panoramic sunroof, quad-zone automatic climate control, and Audi's Virtual Cockpit, which replaces the traditional gauge cluster with a customizable 12.3-inch digital display. Located behind the steering wheel, it shows things like vehicle information, navigation, and climate settings. A 19-speaker Bang & Olufsen audio system is available.

The MMI infotainment system features an easy-to-use interface that doesn't take a lot of practice to master. The screens are responsive, and the menu layouts are intuitive, though some reviewers find it a bit distracting to adjust settings on the go. Features such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto come standard, making it a snap to sync your phone with the vehicle.

A6 Allroad Performance

A6 Allroad Engine: Is That a V6 Draggin' This Wagon?

The A6 Allroad features a 335-horsepower turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine and a seven-speed automatic transmission. Outside of the Mercedes E-Class wagon, this Audi has the most powerful engine in the class; few others even offer a V6.

This Audi responds quickly when you hit the gas, and it feels strong on the highway, even during merging and passing. The engine also features a 48-volt mild-hybrid electric vehicle system that provides a small boost during acceleration, helping the Allroad feel quicker and slightly improving fuel economy.

A6 Allroad Gas Mileage: Worse Than Rivals

The A6 Allroad gets 20 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway. Most other wagons get better gas mileage, though in fairness, they also come standard with four-cylinder engines, and many don't have standard AWD like this Audi does.

A6 Allroad Ride and Handling: Impressive on Both Counts

You probably won't be surprised to learn that the A6 Allroad – like many other Audi vehicles – delivers a soft, smooth ride, even over rough pavement (and indeed, even once the pavement ends). You'll also be pleasantly surprised by the Allroad's handling. It's no sports car, but it feels poised and balanced on winding roads.

A6 Allroad Off-Road Performance

No wagon has the off-road ability of a Jeep or Land Rover, so don't expect to take the A6 Allroad across rocky cliffs or deep mud pits. That said, this Audi gives you up to 7.3 inches of ground clearance (many SUVs only have about 8 inches of clearance), and standard Quattro all-wheel drive provides excellent traction, letting the Allroad handle some light off-roading without breaking a sweat.

How Much Does It Cost to Insure an Audi A6 Allroad?

The cost of insuring an Audi A6 Allroad will depend on a variety of factors, including your deductible, the level of coverage that you want, and the type of insurance that you choose. Your age, gender, location, credit score, and driving record can also have an impact on your insurance rates. Check out our car insurance guide to find the best policy for you.

A6 Allroad Safety

A6 Allroad Crash Test Results

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave the 2020 A6 Allroad the highest rating of Good in all six crash tests and named it a Top Safety Pick+, the organization's highest honor. The A6 Allroad's headlights received a Good rating for how well they illuminate the road ahead.

The IIHS uses a different scale for grading collision avoidance features. The A6 Allroad earned the highest rating of Superior for its standard vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-pedestrian front crash prevention systems.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has not fully tested the 2020 A6 Allroad as of this writing, though the Audi did earn four out of five stars in the frontal crash test and five stars in the rollover test.

A6 Allroad Safety Features

Standard driver assistance features include a rearview camera, front and rear parking sensors, a surround-view parking camera system, lane departure warning, forward collision warning, and Audi's Pre Sense Basic, which rolls up windows and tightens seat belts before an impending forward collision. Also standard is Pre Sense Front, which bundles pedestrian detection and automatic emergency braking.

Available active safety features include a head-up display, adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, traffic sign recognition, intersection crossing assist, blind spot monitoring (Audi Side Assist), rear cross traffic alert, night vision assist, pedestrian detection, and Pre Sense Rear, which is like Pre Sense Basic but for rearward collisions.

A6 Allroad Dimensions and Weight

The A6 Allroad is 16.3 feet long, and its curb weight sits at 4,486 pounds.

Where Is the Audi A6 Allroad Built?

Audi builds the 2020 A6 Allroad in Germany.

Which Audi A6 Allroad Model Is Right for Me?

The Audi A6 Allroad comes in two trims: Premium Plus and Prestige. All models feature a 335-horsepower turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine, a seven-speed automatic transmission, and Quattro all-wheel drive.

We recommend springing for the Prestige trim. The A6 Allroad is already one of the most expensive wagons by a wide margin, so it's worth the extra few thousand dollars to get a host of comfort upgrades and additional driver assistance features. What's more, the Prestige offers features you cannot get in the base Premium Plus trim.

We cover the Audi A6 sedan in a separate review.

A6 Allroad Premium Plus

The A6 Allroad Premium Plus carries a base price of $65,900. Standard features include a panoramic sunroof, quad-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, heated front seats, power-adjustable front seats, a heated steering wheel, and Audi's Virtual Cockpit.

The infotainment system comes with a dual-display touch-screen interface (a 10.1-inch upper screen and an 8.6-inch lower screen), Bluetooth, four USB ports, a Wi-Fi hot spot, a 16-speaker Bang & Olufsen audio system, satellite radio, HD Radio, wireless device charging, navigation, Android Auto, and Apple CarPlay.

Standard active safety features include a rearview camera, front and rear parking sensors, a surround-view parking camera system, lane departure warning, Audi's Pre Sense Basic, forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, and automatic emergency braking.

The Executive package ($1,600) adds ventilated front seats and heated rear seats. The Driver Assistance package ($1,750) adds adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, traffic sign recognition, and intersection crossing assist. The Audi Side Assist package ($500) adds blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, and Pre Sense Rear.

A6 Allroad Prestige

The A6 Allroad Prestige starts at $70,400. In addition to the Premium Plus trim's features, the Prestige comes with ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, a head-up display, adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, traffic sign recognition, intersection crossing assist, blind spot monitoring, and rear cross traffic alert.

The Luxury package ($2,950) adds Valcona leather upholstery and massaging front seats. There are also a few features you can add individually, such as all-wheel steering ($1,800), a 19-speaker Bang & Olufsen audio system ($4,900), and night vision assist with pedestrian detection ($2,500).

Don’t just take our word for it. Check out comments from some of the reviews that drive our rankings and analysis.

  • "Behind the Audi A6's evolutionary looks are an impeccably built interior and one of the quietest interiors in the class. A comfortable ride and secure handling cement the A6's place as a class leader." -- Motor Trend
  • "The 2020 Audi A6 Allroad luxury off-road capable wagon almost claims a category unto itself. Other highly capable luxury wagon offerings from BMW and Mercedes-Benz seem few and far between. Only the Volvo V90 Cross Country comes close. With the elegant exterior styling cues of the new 2020 Audi A6 sedan, this wagon shows up to soccer practice and heads to a red-carpet-worthy event after. A high-tech, spectacularly appointed interior adds to the vehicle's stature. … Churning out impressive vehicles feels normal for Audi these days, and the A6 Allroad proves no exception." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "The ruggedized 2020 Audi A6 Allroad wagon has a bit more off-road capability than the standard A6 sedan thanks to an adjustable air suspension, a lifted ride height, and features such as hill-descent control. Inside, occupants are treated to the same comfortable, spacious, and contemporary cabin as the Allroad's sedan sibling, but with extra cargo space in its elongated rear compartment. The exterior features gray-plastic lower-body cladding to help the A6 Allroad look the part, though a full-body paint option is available. An Allroad-specific grille and 20-inch wheels distinguish the Allroad wagon from its sedan sibling." -- Car and Driver
