There’s been a lot of action at the Nurburgring track this week, with both the 2016 BMW M2 and the Jaguar XE being spotted lapping the German course. The two have been joined by the upcoming Audi A6 Allroad, a vehicle previously caught testing in snowy conditions earlier this year, as well.

Although it hasn’t lost any of its camouflage since then, it’s more than obvious that the wagon has received a pair of new headlamps, while the front bumper and the large grille have been reshaped for a crisper appearance. The details are well hidden around back, but expect for the A6 Allroad to show up with redesigned taillights and a slightly updated bumper.

The only details that are out in the open are the large alloy wheels and the low profile tires; just a few more hints that the A6 Allroad means business in the performance department.

Speaking of performance, the existing gasoline engine will carry over unchanged, while the diesel mills will receive slight output increases, with the 3.0-liter TDI diesel to reach into 270-horsepower territory. Naturally, all units will burn less fuel and spew less CO2.

The new Audi A6 Allroad is expected to break cover at the Paris Motor Show in October, but make sure you stick around for further details.

Why It Matters

Although exterior changes will be minimal, the updated A6 Allroad will most certainly deliver better performance and handling, which will help Audi increase the gap between the said wagon and its competitors even further. With all-wheel-drive included in the package, the A6 Allroad is a great alternative to the larger SUVs, and the Germans are making sure they’re not losing that advantage.
