Online PDF Audi A6 Allroad Quattro Self-Study Program
The allroad quattro. The allroad quattro is Audi’s ﬁrst model with built-in off-road capability. It combines the excellent road qualities of the A6 with the ability to cross all kinds of rough surfaces should the need arise. In other words, it offers the best of both worlds.
allroad quattro Features
The allroad quattro was not created by simply changing shocks and springs to give an A6 more ground clearance. There are more than 1,100 new parts that make the allroad a true all-terrain vehicle.
A 4-level suspension system uses many new parts for vehicle elevation, keeping the driver in control no matter what situation arises.
There are two main modes to this 4-level suspension system. The automatic mode adjusts vehicle height according to the vehicle speed and needs no driver input. The manual mode allows the driver to select the vehicle height, depending on speed and terrain.
Many functional and visual changes other than the suspension system were made for the allroad quattro to appear and function differently than an A6 Avant.
The allroad quattro has larger exterior mirrors, front and rear underbody protection, matte paint ﬁnish on the bumpers, roof and door sills, redesigned headlamps and many other changes which will be covered in this Self-Study Program.
The Audi allroad quattro has the 2.7 L V6 biturbo engine. This is the same engine that is in the S4 and the A6.
One turbocharger is ﬁtted to each bank of cylinders on the V6 engine. The turbocharger design responds quickly to throttle inputs, creating high torque values even at low speeds.
Each bank of cylinders has an intercooler, which reduces the temperature of the intake air. Cooler intake air permits higher cylinder charge density, which in turn creates greater power and efﬁciency. For more information regarding the 2.7L biturbo engine, refer to SSP 992903.
Two transmissions are used in the allroad quattro. They are the 01E 6-speed manual and the 01V 5-speed automatic.
6-speed Manual Transmission
The 01E 6-speed manual transmission is available in the allroad quattro. This transmission is similar to versions used in other Audi high performance models.
6-speed Manual Transmission continued Dual Mass Flywheel The dual mass ﬂywheel consists of two plates that are connected by a series of springs. The springs between the ﬂywheels transform piston power pulsations into smooth, continuous power.
