Safety organization Euro NCAP named the Audi A6 as one of the nine vehicles in its latest tested batch to receive the maximum five-star rating. After testing the model with a 2.0 diesel, Euro NCAP gave it a score of 41 points for child occupant protection, achieving maximum points for the tests on both the 18 month old child and 3 year old child.
In its class, the new Audi A6 is one of the safest cars according to the results to the tests on adult occupant protection in a frontal or side collision and child safety and pedestrian protection.
The top rating of five stars was given to the A6 for driver and passenger protection in frontal and side impact collisions. When it comes to active safety, the Audi A6 features an integral pedestrian protection system with standard daytime running lights and optional night vision assistant with a pedestrian warning.
For added driver assistance systems, Audi offers the active lane assist or the all-weather light with adaptive headlight range control. Audi said that its pre sense system is a “milestone in active safety,” saying that in instances where there may be a collision, this system initiates partial braking.
However, if a collision can’t be avoided, the partial braking is followed by a full deceleration that lessens the intensity of the impact. Target braking helps drivers when they fail to apply enough braking force even after getting visual and acoustic warnings
The Audi A6 Hybrid will soon come out with a new design. Expect a new breed of sedan with Audi’s comprehensive assistance and multimedia system to go along with the hybrid’s sportier chassis and lighter body. Above all, the new Audi will combine a four-cylinder engine’s fuel efficiency with V6 power.
The latest A6 Hybrid is made of advanced steel technology and world-class aluminium for lighter, safer yet strong body. Moreover, the new design results in highly impressive low interior noise levels.
Audi provides an exceptional vibrational comfort by accurately tuning all its components. The drivetrain bearings and the axles are also placed systematically.
There can be no doubt; the new Audi A6 hybrid is sport and luxury rolled into one. It measures 4.92 metres in length, 1.87 metres in width and 1.46 metres for the height. Truly, the new dimensions prove that the new sedan is a cut above the rest.
Adding to its already impressive new design is the very extensive roofline and equally long engine hood. Similarly, the stunning headlights in LED enhance the car’s all-new dynamic style.
It goes without saying that the new sedan also boasts of a very spacious interior. The sporty yet luxurious new design flows throw through the driver’s seat and all the way to the back. All the curves and elegant shapes fall perfectly into place particularly along the dashboard and at the centre panel.
A massage function and extra ventilation are offered as an option for the seats. Among the standard features of Audi included in the A6 are the automatic air conditioning system, MMI radio, head-up display, MMI navigation plus system, Bluetooth, UMTS module, WLAN, Google Earth and Bang & Olufsen sound system. If there’s more, the ergonomic concepts make the new Audi A6 one of the most desirable hybrids in its class.
