The car is boring, it needs to replaed. I don't like the lights or the rims but I think that this looks like a good replacement.

I'd rather have this than a Toureg or a Cayenne or the X5.<br>The interior is awesome and the screen is better integrated with the dash.<br>The Q7 has more seats though.

Well said RSgenesis, IMO the allroad treatment suits the new A6 design so well. I like the way the car turned out. The old car was a bit pointless as it was neither good offraod nor great to drive onroad. This one should be a great replacement.

when i first saw the interior, i was like "wow, 73¬ĚC" loool <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/bonk.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>I thought the current Allroad Quattro will be replaced by the Q7, anyway i've always like the current one and i think this concept looks fine. Sad, but true: it will loose many attractions when we see the production version.

I like the mix of past Audi concepts and a total prouction thing.<p>Add new lights, and this IS the allroad IMO.

Say what you want, this car just looks amazing! The standard A6 Avant always looked a bit too timid for my liking on small wheels, and the extra-sized rims along with the greatly detailed redesigned bumpers make it look just fab!<p>As per marketing, I can see people for whom the Q7 is too large and too SUV going for the allroad. Volvo does the same thing with the XC70 and XC90.

The interior looks hot and the outside looks production ready with new lights. Overall it looks better than the current one

With 5 seats, this would be the little brother to the 7 seat Q7. having a jacked-up wagon look does not hurt either, IMO there's still a market for this class of cars( Subaru legacy outback/volvo XC70). It may not be as hot as regular SUV, but it would create the best compromise.

Yikes! That rear 3-quarter-view makes this beast look alarmingly like the late 70s/80s AMC eagle (which i like.) However the new grill looks better though in this "tough" interpretation.

Officially, Audi says they use the allroad quattro concept for checking how press and public are reacting and what they are thinking about a new allroad, but it was very sure that a new allroad will come. There will be also other allroads, like an A4 allroad.

I agree with taskbearer, I prefer the car based SUVs (current Audi Allroad, Subaru Outback, BWM 325i Touring, etc) than the higher seating position of the regular SUVs (VW Touragg, BWM X5, etc). This particular concept looks a little dull, and it maybe because Audi's new styling direction with it's gigantic front grill. It works okay for Chrysler products, but not for Audi... so it will be a difficult sell for me when this concept becomes a reality based on the A6.

I thing the big grill would suit SUVs even better than regular cars. I don't think the wheel will se production.<p>BMW 325i Touring: an SUV? more like wagon.

is not much of a challenge for its rivals but looks nice

I think its definatly an improvemt on audis styling but I dont think it breaks the mould !!!

Hmmmmmmmm. Are they just TRYING to get uglier?

01-20-2005, 08:42 PM
I don't think it's <I>ugly</I>, but I certainly realize that by the time it makes it to production they will have stripped it of anything that made it stand out, and the final model will look exactly the same as the outgoing Allroad.
