Audi A6 Allroad

Launched in 1999 as an addition to the A6 Avant line-up, the first-generation Allroad came with Audi’s legendary Quattro-derived all-wheel drive set-up for increased grip off-road, as well as an extra 5.6 inches of ground clearance. Audi even introduced air-adjustable suspension, enabling the Allroad driver to choose a ride height suitable for most types of terrain. UK buyers were offered a choice of (180bhp) 2.5 V6 TDi or (250bhp) 2.7 V6 petrol engines, the latter giving the Allroad a top speed of 137mph. In the crossover sector of the late ’90s, Audi was setting high standards.

The Streetwise wasn't that short lived since it continued as the MG3 SW built in China between 2008 and 2010. With its increased ride height, fake skidplates and plastic wheelarch covers, etc, it inspired lots of subsequent soft offroaders.

The Simca Matra Rancho was based on a Simca 1100 pick up with the front of the Simca 1100 and the rear portion by Matra, not a dodge pick up. Simca was on it's own when this was first born.

The van and pick-up versions of the Simca 1100 were badged as Dodges in the UK from 1976.

Yes but it was a French car made in France and was Simca when it was designed and first built, Dodge was only used in this country as the difference between Chryslers car and commercial ranges.
