Audi A6 Allroad quattro (2019) review
What is it like on the inside?
You’d have forgiven Audi for succumbing to marketing codswallop inside the Allroad and swathing it in outdoorsyness. Rubber matting here, some XXL-knurled indicator stalks there, and perhaps brown graphics for the Digital Cockpit. Happily, none of that was allowed past the mood board. This is just an A6 Avant inside.
You can check out our full A6 review here, but suffice it to say this is a very business-like cockpit. It’s all screens, sharp creases and austere Germanic precision. You want a richer-feeling experience? Get the Merc All-Terrain – it’s more baroque, more dated perhaps, but a little homelier. Though for the full cabin-in-the-woods vibe, you’re still better off in a Volvo XC90 Cross Country. Sitting in the Audi is like being trapped in the flat screen TV aisle in John Lewis. To some, the minimalism will reek of cool, to others it’ll feel standoffish and baffling.
In the middle, there’s a very spacious middle row of seats, and beyond that, behind the electric tailgate, lies a 565 litre boot that’ll grow to 1,680 litres with the rear seats folded down. As well as hooks and loops to lash down errant cargo and badly-behaved children you get a luggage net and securing rails as standard.
