Audi A6 allroad Spied Testing. Will It Come to USA?

Many were surprised last week in Geneva when the A6 allroad didn't make a showing.

While it wears cladding, you can clearly see the allroad cues on this obvious...

Cousin Rivalry: Audi allroad vs Volkswagen Alltrack

words: Bill Cho, video: The Fast Lane Car A couple of weeks ago, The Fast Lane Car dragged the allroad against a Porsche Boxster. This time, they have a proper challenger- the Volkswagen Alltrack. They not only drag the two, they take them out on the trail. I'm all for wagon vs wagon battles because that means more new longroofs are being made and that's a good thing. In this battle amongst cousins, who will win? The wagon loving public will win, that's who.   [embed]https:...
