A6 VS Allroad final drive

Afternoon all, I've been wondering and thought someone may know.
Seeing as the Allroad has bigger diameter tyres than the standard A6, does it also have modified gearing to suit or is it just slightly longer geared?

I've noticed the 0-60 time for an allroad is a bit more than a standard Avant so wondered if that might be the reason.

What are the tyre diameters on the allroad and normal A6?

Don't forget the allroad is heavier, it has some under body protection.

On 19" its 686mm vs 711mm, an inch in it, 3mph at 70.
Its not massive so wouldn't be surprised if they left they same transmission in.
The weight could be the main issue but I always figured most of the weight is in the air suspension bits.
