The German company Audi is already in the fourth generation with it’s Audi A6 Allroad Quattro model. The main feature of the A6 Allroad is increased ground clearance. However, in standard mode, it is a pathetic 139 mm: even the new Lada Granta Cross with its 198 mm on this background it may seem a real SUV.
Fortunately, Audi A6 Allroad defaults to the air suspension that can increase ground clearance on the go. Thus, upon activation of the off-road mode, the clearance is increased to 184 mm. However, when the speed of 35 km / h the body automatically drops to 169 mm at 80 km / h – to standard 139 mm.
At 120 km / h the Allroad will “squat” to 124 mm in order to reduce air resistance. The only possible power unit of the new Allroad will be a 3.0-liter diesel engine, combined with the 8-step “automatic”.
The engine is available in three versions:
- 45 TDI (231 hp and 500 Nm)
- 50 TDI (286 hp and 620 Nm)
- and 55 TDI (349 hp and 700 Nm).
Stated acceleration time of 0-100 km / h of 6.7, 5.9 and 5.2 seconds respectively. Fuel consumption is in the range from 5.9 to 6.6 l / 100 km.
Of course, all A6 Allroad come with all-wheel drive quattro. As an option offered active rear differential and polnoupravlyaemoe chassis. new generation wagons are inherently “soft” the hybrids. They are equipped with a 48-volt on-board system and the starter-generator with a belt drive. the last power of 8 kW. The energy stored in the lithium-ion battery capacity of 10 Ah. This sophisticated system allows you to reduce the consumption of gorjuchki 0.4 l / 100 km.
