Following in the footsteps of the U.S.-bound A4 Allroad, Audi has unveiled its bigger, stouter brother here at the Geneva Motor Show.

The 2013 Audi A6 Allroad takes the same proven formula of past rough-and-tumble models and applies it to the Avant version of the latest A6, raising the ride height by around 2.5 inches, slapping some plastic cladding around the wheel arches and fascias, flaring the fenders, tucking a few stainless steel trays to the underbody and topping it all off with a pair off roof rails.

Three diesel powerplants will be available ranging from 204 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque to 313 hp and 479 lb-ft of twist. The lone gasoline engine – the supercharged 3.0-liter V6 from the S4 – puts out 310 hp and some 324 lb-ft though a seven-speed dual-clutch 'box to all four wheels.

However, unlike the A4 Allroad, we likely won't be seeing the A6 in the U.S., so only one beefed up Audi wagon will have to suffice.

      It's gorgeous, and an excellent SUV alternative. I like it a lot more than the A4 Allroad the US is getting.

      Between Audi not bringing this to the US, and BMW not bringing that insane M5 awd Diesel here...sob :(

      Great looking wagon but I have to wonder if all that detail and polished pieces near the bottom and at the front would hold up to even mild off roading and flying rocks. Either way, still very attractive.

      I loved my C5 allroad with the adjustable air suspension...had an MTM exhaust on it. That car was everything in one package. But I never would have kept it after the warranty period!

      I owned an A6 allroad once, it was simultaneously the coolest car I've ever owned and an indescribably huge piece of excrement. I'll be damned if it isn't still a looker, though and this one is no different. Lord, that's a pretty car.
