For the longest time, the only allroad in the States was the C5 A6 allroad. It was a time when Audi had plenty of Avant offerings such as the S4 Avant, A4 Avant, A6 Avant. Then these started to disappear with the only Avant offered for awhile being the B8.5 A4 allroad. Then the C8 RS 6 Avant showed up as well as its less powerful sister, the A6 allroad. But if you look around, you will find clean examples of older Avants like this 2003 Highland Green A6 allroad. Here’s the ad:
This 2003 Audi Allroad is powered by a twin-turbocharged 2.7-liter V6 paired with a six-speed manual transaxle and Quattro all-wheel drive. Finished in green over black and gray leather, the car is equipped with a height-adjustable pneumatic suspension, 17″ five-spoke wheels, a sunroof, dual-zone automatic climate control, cruise control, rear window shades, heated front and rear seats, and a factory CD/cassette stereo. The car was first registered in Pennsylvania and was acquired by the selling dealer in November 2021. Service in February 2022 included the replacement of the alternator and an oil change. This Allroad has 117k miles and is offered at no reserve by the selling dealer in Florida with manufacturer’s literature, a clean Carfax report, and a clean Pennsylvania title.
The Allroad was based on the contemporary A6 Avant, and this example is finished in Highland Green Metallic (LY6J) with contrasting gray bumper covers and wheel arch flares. Exterior features include a glass sunroof, xenon headlights, integrated fog lights, roof rails, and dual exhaust outlets. A dent is present on the left rear door, and paint blemishes are visible on the rear hatch and in front of the right rear wheel. Additional photos of the exterior and trim are provided in the gallery below.
Factory 17” alloy wheels are mounted with an older set of 225/55 Michelin Primacy MXV4 tires that show cracks in the sidewalls. The car features a four-position height-adjustable pneumatic suspension, and stopping power is provided by four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes. Scuffs are visible on the wheels.
The interior features heated front and rear seats upholstered in black and gray leather, and burl walnut wood trim accents the dashboard, center console, and door panels. Amenities include power-adjustable front seats with driver-position memory, dual-zone automatic climate control, cruise control, rear window shades, all-weather floor mats, a factory CD/cassette stereo, and a rear cargo net and cover.
The multifunction steering wheel fronts a 170-mph speedometer, a tachometer, and gauges for coolant temperature, oil temperature, charging voltage, and fuel level. The digital odometer indicates 117k miles, approximately 100 of which were added by the selling dealer.
The twin-turbocharged 2.7-liter V6 engine was factory rated at 250 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. Service in preparation for the sale included the replacement of the alternator and an oil change.
Power is sent to all four wheels through a six-speed manual transaxle and a Quattro all-wheel drive system. Rust is present on the exhaust system and underside hardware.
Manufacturer’s literature and one fob key are included in the sale.
The Carfax report shows no accidents or damage and lists history in Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.
Did I mention that this is a 6-speed manual? With the kind of rare Highland Green Metallic color, this should be a desirable example. Also, I noticed that this allroad has the all-weather mats in it…I wonder if it has the cloth ones? We have in the office basement (& have had for years), a set of green mats for this very particular model. Maybe if you buy this Highland Green C5 allroad, we can make a sweet deal. The current bid is only $2,345 and it ends in 4 days. You can find this without a reserve HERE.
