Strikes of the SNCF : the bus stormed !

This solution to last minute is not a comfortable choice, especially for individuals who are preparing to leave for the weekend of all saints, and who would prefer to use their car, or move quickly to the TGV. But also groups, companies, schools and associations who have urgent needs for moving around, especially in this period of school holidays, use this solution, which has led to an explosion of applications on the website of Alliance Coach, leader of the transport group.

The word of the director

Some coach companies benefit very definitely of the situation to inflate their prices but Alexandre Woog, director of Alliance Coach, says about this : “Unlike other players, our rates do not move. We make sure to respond to the maximum number of requests. Unfortunately, with a multiplication by 10 of our activity we can’t carry all of the world.” In spite of the roads, congested and fatigued workers engaging on the roads, the users of the railways, annoyed by the cancellations of trains with repetition, take the risk of having the caps in the discomfort of a bus to arrive at good port at all costs. Travel during this long weekend of 3 days for all saints, will not be of any rest.

If Lewis Hamilton scored four points Sunday in the race, he will be assured of winning its sixth title of World champion of F1.

Test of the Audi A6 Allroad : even not fear !

The German forest to the austrian border, are not necessarily the most welcoming, which is when the end of the month of October approach. Costumes, pumpkins, and other decorations folk usual for this time of the year would be even superfluous.

Surrounded by the fir trees of the mountainous region, immersed in a thick fog, the night threatening to fall at any moment, there is no need of fireworks to thrill to the idea of a fault on the route. To venture out in the fog, there was, therefore, provide us with a carriage able to reassure us. The Audi A6 Allroad, version of way of the road to the rings, is fortunately, for us, not the type to be picky about the choice of the route.

Based on the fifth generation of the A6 Avant (station wagon version), this is the fourth time since 1999 that it has team elements, turning it into the break, elevated and strengthened to cope with the hostile ground. The fundamentals are preserved, with a body that is more protected from outside elements. Wheel arches, sills and shields receive reinforcements in plastic, grey, black or body colour at choice, accompanied by skis protection front and rear, aluminum, depending on the configuration, just like the new wand side optional at the bottom of the doors with inscription ” allroad “.

Our test model had replaced all the aluminium and all its chrome trim to black gloss. The grille seems as well his mask of circumstance to turn full black. Contour, grid, rings of the Audi, the face becomes more daunting. Enough, hopefully, to scare away the creatures that would cross our path. It is distinguished less easily the six vertical bars are widely spaced, the signature of the latest SUV of the brand that bring them closer to the Allroad. This pack turns black, also the frames of glass, the shells of rear-view mirrors, roof bars, logo back and the wand normally chrome connecting the lights and that made its appearance on this generation.

The ratings are essentially the same as on the previous-generation A6 Allroad. It is bigger than a few centimeters.Photo Credit – Autonews

Compared to its predecessor, the dimensions are changing a little, but are revised upward with 4,95 m long, 2,93 m wheelbase and 1.50 m high, respectively, one, two and three centimetres more than previously. The width remains the same at 1.90 m, in the same way as the boot volume always between 565 and 1 680 litres seats folded. For their part, the rear seat side retain their generosity.

In comparison to the audi A6 Avant from which it is derived, the Allroad earns more precisely 12 mm in length, 16 mm in width and 27 mm in height. It receives in series the adaptive air suspension, the control of the speed in downhill (2-to 30-km/h) and of course the permanent all-wheel drive Quattro with a torque split of 40/60 between the front and rear. The differential Quattro Sport with division of variable torque on the rear axle and four-wheel steering are available in the catalogue of the options. Equipped more or less sportingly, it is in any case a variant that pleases as 60% of A6 Avant sold in France are of the A6 Allroad.

Since the passenger compartment, it is difficult to realize that one is aboard a version “augmented” for the A6. Only the driving modes of the Audi drive select add positions “Allroad” and “Offroad” and is used to vary the ground clearance. Of 139 mm in the base position, it can rise to 169 mm on off-road mode up to 80 km/h or 184 mm in the under through a pressure on the dedicated button on the touch screen, only up to 35 km/h. In excess of 120 km/h, the ride height lowers automatically up to 124 mm in order to promote the aerodynamics and propose a range of settings of 60 mm between the highest point and the lowest point. The road less passable become possible without encountering the disadvantages of an SUV much more massive. The obstacles in the biggest, requiring angles of attack and escape more important, will remain reserved for them but very few users of high-end vehicles really have a need for capabilities that are superior to those of the Allroad.

Whatever it is, it’s comfortable and feels safe on board. Outside noise the most disturbing are inaudible. Those bearing are perfectly filtered and the block of the 3.0 V6 diesel our version is made discrete to the steady state before giving more voice to each acceleration. The finish of the first plan does not suffer from any negative criticism and you can enjoy the good ergonomics of the dashboard making it great for screens. On the central console, there are two of them. At the bottom, the 8.6-inch control air conditioning, allows quick access to shortcuts that pre-registered for destinations GPS for example, active and rule some driving aids or is still used as a touch pad to write with the finger an address for navigation.

Above, also touch and up to 10.1-inch diagonal from the finish intermediary Avus (8.8-inch series), the multimedia screen master proposes to go further in the settings of the vehicle, displays the map, the modes of conduct, or the radio. Both have a haptic feedback, giving the sensation of pressing a physical button. It is also the case on the bar of buttons incorporating the button warning, the defog, traction control switchable, and the Drive select (the input range has the classic keys to this place). The design is sleek, but do not separate them, it is sometimes complicated to move quickly to the desired function and we are left, therefore, is to press the button on the traction control when one wanted to simply change the settings of the chassis. The force of pressure applied may, in addition, seem slightly excessive.

And then there’s the Virtual Cockpit 12.3-inch instrumentation, necessarily associated with the screen of 10.1″, which is controlled by three buttons and a scroll wheel on the left branch of the steering wheel, ideally complemented by the head-up display-high optional.

The only source of comfort, ambient interior lighting, and white lights lining the counter, doors, chopsticks, colorful, and customizable, with a palette of 30 colours (from level Avus) that surlignent the forms of the furniture, to feel confidence even in the midst of the black forest and cold in the heart of the fall.

It is also reassuring to be able to rely on the auto headlight-adaptive Matrix LED (1 825 € or in series on Avus and Avus Extended) when the horizon clears. In following another vehicle, turns after turns, we can observe the different cells of the optical turn on and off to turn not to dazzle anyone, making the day all around. The down sides are illuminated, and the vehicle that precedes us take advantage of our beam of light without this is reflected in his mirrors, with a few exceptions, certain combinations of curves taking briefly short the system. The overall efficiency of this technology is still impressive.

Body movements are well contained and it feels like there all the earnings of a whole way of reasonable height. Although important, the weight of 1 945 kg vacuum of our model is lower than an SUV of equivalent size, as its centre of gravity.
The direction, rather slight in the mode “Comfort” is no less precise and can harden in the middle of the settings conduct. It lack then of progressivity in the resistance. The mode “Individual” will choose his or her preferences independently from steering, suspension or engine.

With the 286-horsepower and 620 Nm of torque from the 3.0 V6 TDI at our disposal, the raises are express and the 0 to 100 km/h is done in 5.9 seconds, The Tiptronic eight reports, very sweet, lack somewhat of reactivity. This block “50 TDI” is available in versions 231 hp and 500 Nm (45 TDI) and 349 hp) and 700 Nm (55 TDI). The latter, as found on the S6 and S7 TDI, adds an electric compressor at its intake system. It is powered by a battery in 48V and an alternator-starter common to the three engines in order to reduce consumption of 0.4 litre per 100 km, with a mode free-wheeling between 55 and 160 km/h is managed automatically and available for 40 seconds. During our different journeys, we have identified a conso. average of 6.5 l./100 km highway and 7.7 l./100 km on a course more varied. A fourth V6 3.0 is proposed, a petrol this time : the 55 TFSI 340 hp and 500 Nm probably less requested for a vehicle intended to swallow the miles, tow large trailers, and trudge a minimum off the beaten track. Its torque equivalent to the 45 TDI is currency 6 910 € more (finish equivalent) and is the entry ticket to 83 570 € when the “small” diesel allows you to select the finish of the base 64 960 €.

Choose a Audi A6 Allroad requires a budget and the options available in the catalogue do not have anything in common with the accessories of a store of pranks and practical jokes… If the base model is already well equipped, there will be a low word count 74 000 € with a dozen of customization options, comfort or driving aids. For a configuration more technological and two/three equipment more dispensable or a more powerful engine, it will not take hope to be able to stay below 80 000 €. The version is the most upscale 55 TDI 349 ch Avus Extended reached 94 500 €.

No major defects and versatility to any event, it was necessary that this is reflected where there is usually the greatest anxieties : the final score. Braving the bad weather, the fog and the night, we are pulling in a few turns, crossed at a pace recklessly slow in this heavy atmosphere, where strange shadows played over the edge of the road, we finally managed to extract from this terrifying route germano-austrian in one piece and in relative serenity. The A6 Allroad has not crumbled, it is the least we could ask him.

Our Duster is still a tall vehicle that has a 4×4 system not permanent. That falls well, it is not intended to be a true all-terrain. A monte pneumatic adequate and the suspension would no doubt defend themselves without complex on hilly terrain. The model has a knob on the central console to select the traction that you want.
