For most car lovers, Audi has always been –first and foremost- associated with sporty wagons. In fact, this reputation was born with the fierce Audi RS 2 Avant, manufactured between March 1994 and July 1995. This tradition is still quite alive since Audi Canada is currently offering the high-performance 2022 RS 6 Avant. However, for the last 20 years now, SUVs have been on the rise, earning more and more market shares with undeniable success. Audi noticed this trend a long time ago, and quickly began offering this type of vehicle for sale. Currently, SUVs constitute a full a large Audi vehicle range inside its broader model offering.

However, Audi has always been proud of its roots, to the point where moving away from them would be quite unthinkable. As a result, rather than abandoning its long tradition of wagons, Audi has opted to turn this type of car into rugged adventurers for different model lines. Today, the vehicles representing this type of wagon in Canada are the Audi A4 and the A6 allroad. Offering us such a wide array of options is amazing, but raises the following question: which one to choose? Audi Blainville, your preferred Audi dealer serving. the area from the North-Shore of Montreal to the Laurentians, compares these models for you below, in this clash “2022 Audi A4 allroad VS 2022 Audi A6 allroad”, to help you choose the one that best suits your needs!

The same all-terrain wagon concept, that translates into two separate interpretations.

Let’s begin with the exterior styling of both vehicles. After all, it is the very first thing you will notice about the 2022 Audi A4 allroad and the 2022 Audi A6 allroad when you come and visit us in Blainville. One thing is clear: even if these two wagons belong to two different premium vehicle categories, they do undeniably share many common traits. Both offer the body lines you expect from the now-classic Audi off-road-ready wagon silhouette, which is traditionally as practical and rugged as it is elegant, with its higher ground clearance and black plastic fender covers protecting the wheel arches from rock and pebble projections. The 2022 A4 allroad, just like the 2022 A6 allroad, are more than worthy of their Audi name. In fact, they honor Audi’s rally roots, which are so important for the German brand, through their unique exterior amazing trail-ready look.

However, each one has a unique character. When it comes to the 2022 A4 allroad, it is smaller in size compared to its big sister, the A6 allroad. This gives the impression that it is ready to take on anything in front of it, whether the road is paved or not: intimidating Singleframe grille, chiseled geometrical headlights and fierce taillights all work to reinforce this feeling, with a design that openly flaunts its off-road skills. Just from its look and style, this compact Audi wagon screams loud and clear that it is ready and willing for anything.

The 2022 A6 allroad, on the other hand, is longer and more imposing; but do not, for a second, believe that this means in any way, shape, or form that its body traits are less dynamic. In fact, it’s quite the opposite! Headlights and taillights, for example, are even more complex and sharp in their shape than those of the A4, even if they remain chiseled, like those of its little sister. The result is that the Audi midsize wagon boasts unparalleled charisma, from the inside out!

This said, everything depends on what you are really looking for: for an ultra-athletic compact but streamlined design, choose the 2022 A4 allroad. For a more imposing size and a look that commands respect everywhere you go, then opt for the 2022 A6 allroad!

Extraordinary performance, but a more frugal A4 compared to a more powerful A6.

You will surely agree with us: a premium vehicle must not be judged on its outside appearance, but rather on its technical specifications, and the 2022 Audi A4 allroad as well as the 2022 Audi A6 allroad are no exception to this rule. Nothing to fear here though: even if both Audi vehicles offer one engine option each, you will have all the power you need with both.

When it comes to the 2022 A4 allroad, you will find a very dynamic turbocharged 4-cylinder with a displacement of 1,984 cm3 delivering and 261 horsepower for 273 lb-ft. of maximum torque. This engine gives the smaller of the Audi all-terrain wagons surprising capability since, regardless of the version, you can go from 0 to 100 km/hr in just 5.8 seconds. However, even more surprising still, is that even with all this power, the A4 allroad has remarkable fuel efficiency. In city/highway/combined cycle, the more compact of the two allroads shows fuel consumption numbers of 9.8/7.9/8.9 L/100 km. This will allow you to take full advantage of your A4, between the North-Shore of Montreal and the Laurentians, without worrying about how much your next stopping at a gas station will cost you!

When it comes to the 2022 A6 allroad, you will have access to a turbocharged V6 with a 2 995 cm³ displacement and an output of 335 horsepower for 369 lb-ft. of maximum torque. Logically, The A6 is more powerful, as it is from a superior category. Performance is also a step ahead, as the 0-100 km/hr sprint takes as little as 5.5 seconds, again regardless of the model you choose. Many of so-called sports cars would love to claim those figures as their own!

However, these greater capabilities come a price: the A6 is less fuel-efficient than its little sister, with gas consumption numbers of 11.5/8.3/10.0 L/100 km when it comes to city/highway/combined cycles. Nonetheless, It is important to keep in mind that, for its category, the allroad version of the Audi A6 is one of the most reasonable on this subject.

As a result of all this: No, you are not dreaming! these two rugged Audis offer outstanding performance, while maintaining the versatility you would expect for this type of vehicle. The practical aspect is magnified by the fact that both the A4 allroad and the A6 allroad come standard with the quattro all-wheel drive system, famous for its legendary ability to deliver optimal traction even in the worst conditions. Moreover, both vehicles are equipped with an excellent 7-speed automatic transmission, which is as smooth as it is quick gear shift wise. This will allow you to exploit your Audi allroad’s capabilities fully and safely with astounding ease, even during the worst winter day from Blainville all the way up to the Laurentians!

As to which vehicle to choose, once again, everything depends on your situation. If you are looking for a compromise between fuel efficiency and performance, then the A4 will be the best choice. If, on the contrary, you are looking for the highest level of allroad capabilities, then the A6 will be the best model for you!

Versatile and spacious cabins with cutting-edge technology, but more interior room for the 2022 A6 allroad.

Finally, the cherry on top for this A4 allroad vs A6 allroad comparison: a look at their cockpits! In both cases, you will have access to a spacious interior with top-quality fit and finish throughout the cabin. Indeed, only high-quality materials have been used and all the cockpit feels as solid as it is durable, as you could expect from any Audi vehicle. When it comes to interior design, it is very streamlined, allowing the driver to focus on the road ahead and passengers to enjoy a relaxed and quiet atmosphere. 

However, there is an important difference between the two: cargo space. With the A4 allroad, you will have access to a total of 24 ft3 of cargo space, while the A6 allroad gives you 30 ft3. This is normal: the A4 belongs to a smaller category of vehicles than its big sister, and therefore is shorter. as a result, the trunk is obviously smaller. On the other hand, though, this more compact size becomes a significant advantage if you live in the city, as it will allow you to navigate throughout urban traffic much more easily and will also make parking manoeuvre much simpler formality. This is not to be overlooked!
