For what it's worth:
2020 A6 2.0T: $54,900 (most will be equipped around $59-60k)
2020 A6 3.0T: $59,800 (most will be equipped around $64-65k)
2002 A6 Allroad: $65,900 (most will be equipped around $69k)
So a premium of $6,100 over the Sedan with the same motor. Seems like most of the Allroad options make up for that cost though.
Anyone complaining about the price of this is most likely has no perspective on how things work in the real world.
In the 2005MY, the equivalent could cost as much as $47,000 with all the options ticked - that's over $63,000 in today's money. The fully-loaded C5 also doesn't hold a candle to what the base model new version has as far as features go. Yet (broke) people are complaining. This is why Audi and other manufactures don't want to sell these things to us in the first place.
But yeah, have fun trying to fill as much stuff or fit passengers in the same comfort in that Q5...you know, a full class size smaller. That's always a legitimate comparison.
Q5: 25.1 cubit feet, 53.1 cubic feet with the seats down.
A6 Avant: 20 cubic feet 59.3 cubic feet with the seats down.
Also, one is a smaller, S variant, it's going to be a little bit of a different beast.
The cu. ft (volume) doesn't tell the whole story. Obviously with the Q5, you have a taller compartment, but I'd assume the area of the cargo compartment of the A6 is larger, which if true, would make it easier for stowing certain, bulkier items, like strollers, etc. But you're correct, that the Q5 isn't so small, and the CUV format give you great space efficiency.
Allroad is onbly $2,400 more than comparable A6 sedan.
But everyone in this thread is missing the real story here... A6 Allroad is massively cheaper than A7!Originally Posted by bzcat

Glad to see my thread went to bickering about the price. It is entirely reasonable, and they were right to skip the base premium trim given the demo who would get this thing. To that end, the Allroad is gonna be for those who get it, not for those who flock to the cliche CUVs. Different human animals.
Agreed that overall cubic feet doesn't tell the whole story, especially usable space.
Again, my initial post is not something I'd stand by now (sober, lolol) - the $70k number caught me by surprise, but Audi $70k MSRP =/= $70k in your garage. Of all people, I should know that.
2019 Audi A5 - back to the brand after 28 years
2017 Golf Alltrack SEL+Tech - Son #1. In a galaxy far, far away
2014 Dodge Durango Limited AWD - Wife's
2004 Acura TSX - Son #2. The sax-mobile
1967 Chevrolet Corvette - I promise to get this car back on the road in 2018....
Not to mention the Audi has more standard features like the full LED lighting, digital cockpit, and siriusxm- all options on the cheaper Jag.
