18th March, 2015

The Audi A6 has been comprehensively refreshed, with contemporary design elements, intelligent technology innovations, new engines and a higher level of standard equipment than Audi has ever offered in this segment.

The new Audi A6 features a wider, flatter single frame grille that is consistent with the latest evolution of the Audi design pattern. The refreshed exterior styling features sharper lines and tauter surfaces from front-to-rear, which combine to suggest a more dynamic overall design. Highlighting this at the front of the new A6 is Audiís distinctive and intelligent Matrix LED headlight technology, which offers an incredible level of forward vision at night-time, without blinding other motorists. Dynamic turning indicators at the front and rear are also available across the range Ė a real safety advancement in low-visibility conditions.

The new high-resolution Driver Information System (DIS) sits in between the speedometer and tachometer readouts, and can display crystal-clear map-based navigation right in the driverís natural field of vision. This intelligent ergonomic innovation from Audi is powered by the new-generation MIB2 infotainment system, which itself is driven by the latest Nvidia Tegra 30 quad-core processor.

A sporty seven-speed S tronic dual-clutch transmission supersedes the previous multitronic Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) unit for the front-wheel drive model. The S tronic is an entirely new development for Audi, and is combined with a new 1.8 TFSI four-cylinder engine in the entry-level model for Australia.

Producing 140kW and 320Nm, the 1.8 TFSI is endowed with Audiís very latest engine technology, like dual injection and the Audi valvelift system (AVS). It accelerates to 100 km/h in 7.9 secs from rest, and has a combined cycle fuel consumption rating of 5.7 litres per 100km.

In addition, two versions of the 3.0 TDI engine complete the A6 line-up Ė both delivering power via Audiís quattro permanent all-wheel drivetrain.

The single-turbo 3.0 TDI produces 160kW/500Nm and is equipped with a seven-speed S tronic dual-clutch transmission. With this combination, it powers from 0-100km/h in 6.6sec, with fuel efficiency rating of 5.1 L/100km.

Audiís high-performance TDI diesel technology comes with the 3.0 TDI Biturbo V6 engine. With 235kW and 650Nm, and matched to an eight-speed tiptronic transmission, it sprints to 100km/h in 5.0 secs. Fuel efficiency is rated at 6.1 L/100km.

The high-performance Audi S6 sedan sits at the top of the range, powered by the 4.0 TFSI V8. This engine gains 22kW over its predecessor, with outputs of 331kW and 550Nm, and now despatches the 100km/h mark in 4.4 secs.

The Audi A6 is a 5-star ANCAP rated vehicle, and is equipped with eight airbags for occupant safety.

The new Audi A6 comes equipped to a very high standard, with the following highlights featured as standard on the 1.8 TFSI entry-level model:

  • Dynamic new 18-inch alloy wheel design
  • S line exterior package
  • Xenon plus headlights, with LED daytime running lights and high-beam assist
  • MMI Navigation plus with MMI touch, including Bluetooth interface, CD/DVD player, 2 x SDHC card readers, new USB-based Audi Music Interface (AMI) and 10GB flash memory
  • Audi sound system with 10 speakers, 6ch amplifier and an output of 180w
  • Parking system plus, with front and rear camera
  • Electric folding exterior mirrors
  • Audi side assist
  • DAB+ digital radio reception
  • Convenience key

In addition to the equipment above, the A6 3.0 TDI gains Audi lane assist and four-zone climate control, as well as LED headlights with rear dynamic turning indicators. The top model in the A6 range, the 3.0 TDI Biturbo, boasts all of the specification above, instead with 19-inch alloy wheels.

The Technik package combines highly desirable options for maximum customer value. For $4,800*, the package includes Adaptive Cruise Control with stop-and-go, Audi pre-sense plus, Park assist, 360-degree camera and Audi Connect. Active lane assist and four-zone climate control can be included for the 1.8 TFSI model, taking the package price to $5,800*.
