Well, it was nice while it lasted, but Audi has decided to drop the new 2012 Audi A6 Allroad from the U.S. market. The original Audi Allroad was introduced in 1999.

Debuting at the 2012 Geneva Auto Show, the all-new A6 Allroad features an extra 2.3 inches of ground clearance than the standard A6, and also comes available with front and rear skid plates. The A6 Allroad will also be available in four distinct powerplants, including a strong 3.0L TDI capable of 308-hp and 479 lb-ft of torque.

While the A6 Allroad won’t be available in the United States, Audi’s new A4 Allroad will join the Q5 and Q7 SUVs in showrooms this June.

    It would be nice if at least one other German/European car manufacturer other than MB would offer a wagon option!!!

    BMW bailed no longer offering the 5 series, despite the fact that the F11 in either 535i or 550i (M-Sport) guise is an magnificent car.

    Volvo are out, Audi, the list goes on, all we have is the rather dull E350 or the insanely expensive E63 from MB …

    Its even rumored that Jaguar will bring out an estate … I wonder if that will come to the US?

    What is wrong, why can’t we have the wagon’s here? Not everyone wants to drive a fuel sucking “truck” aka SUV/SAV …

    send us your wagons damn you!

    Sadly Larry, you are right. There are rumors the 5 Series wagon will return. I know you’re not going to want to hear this, but there is always the Cadillac CTS wagon and the Acura TSX version too.

    BMW needs to kill off the 5 Series Gran Turismo hatchback and bring back the 5 Series wagon ASAP! I can’t stress how bad the 5 series hatchback looks.

    When can I get a new all road ?

  • Ijo

    You’ll soon be able to get the A4 allroad. But it would not be what I want. I have two wagons right now – BMW 525iT and Audi allroad. Both with proper manual tranny. A4 allroad wouldn’t have that option in the US, so I’m not buying. What are my choices left? -surprisingly only Cadillac… Not a bad car, but is that all? Where is any competition..? Maybe I need to move back to Europe, s**t
