A unique shoulder line: it starts at the headlights and runs almost along the windows to the rear end of the tailgate, giving the Audi A6 a slim and elegant silhouette. The impression is reinforced by the ten-spoke cast aluminium wheels. It is a remarkable line even when stationary.
No detail has been left to chance in the design of the new Audi A6: the bright black horizontal slats of the new Single-frame grille accentuate the elegance that emerges from the front.
Each line of the new Audi A6 is part of a whole, giving the sedan a design that captivates the eye, whatever the angle of vision. The LED daytime running lights blend into the overall shape, suggesting a strong character.
The new Audi A6 sedan benefits from TFSI® technology. Its particularity: it combines the advantages of the FSI® with a turbo that amplifies power even more efficiently. The V6 3.0 TFSI quattro develops 300 hp. It is equipped with an innovative mechanical compressor with a charge cooling system allowing moderate fuel consumption. The engine impresses not only with its maximum torque of 440 Nm, but also with its torque curve: almost 90% of the maximum torque is in the operating range of 2,900 to 4,500 rpm. Thanks to its excellent responsiveness and exceptional power, the six-cylinder petrol engine makes driving particularly dynamic. The Audi A6 sedan accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.5 seconds.
The range of engines available on the Audi A6 sedan is remarkable. For example, there is the 204 hp V6 2.8 FSI, combined with the S tronic® gearbox and quattro® permanent all-wheel drive. The latter accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in only 8.1 seconds. The V6 2.8 FSI is also available in a two-wheel drive version with multitronic® gearbox. All engines meet EU5 emission standards.
Every second car currently sold by Audi is a diesel. What seems obvious today was not so twenty years ago. At that time, Audi revolutionized the market with the first 2.5 TDI engine.
Since then, innovations such as the Common Rail system have made TDI even more efficient. The piezo-injectors ensure a balanced and precise distribution of the fuel. As a result, engines have become 30% more economical since the first TDI was introduced, while their overall performance has increased significantly. Under these conditions, it made perfect sense to integrate a diesel engine into a racing car. It is a successful bet. In 2006, the Audi R10 TDI – the first race car with a diesel engine – won the Le Mans 24 Hours, a victory followed by many others, the last one taking place in 2010.
The Audi A6 sedan has two TDI engines combined with the Common Rail system. The 245 hp V6 3.0 TDI quattro allows your Audi A6 sedan to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.1 seconds thanks to its 500 Nm of torque. The 204 hp V6 3.0 TDI proves that driving pleasure and efficiency can be combined. It is very fuel efficient and emits only 137 g of CO2.
