As an American living in Italy, there are often whole months long stretches where I just drive European cars, which unfortunately will never come out to play on American soil. Such is the case with plenty of beloved Audi Allroad Quattro A6 seen here. Initially the assumption was that since the A4 Allroad had already been confirmed for the United States that the A6 Avant would be coming as well, but I am dismayed to report the opposite.
What a shame, too. The business case for giving the entire range of Audi North America that Germany has apparently just does not pan out financially – and for some of us, is the old story of unrequited love predictable through the chilly Atlantic.
