The business class winner just got better - Audi has completely modernised the A6 range. All-new engines, transmissions, and headlamps, as well as an all-new infotainment system make the Sedan and Avant more effective, powerful, attractive, and sophisticated than before. The adaptable A6 all-road quattro and the S6, S6 Avant, and RS6 sport also come with a complete set of new features.
With the all-new A6, Audi is writing the next act in an extremely successful story. It stands for ground-breaking technology and the brand's premium statement. The A6 establishes new benchmarks in a range of technical areas: the light body has many aluminium elements, the forceful and highly effective engines, the sports chassis, and the innovative systems for assistance and multimedia.
With crisp outlines, accented laterals, sportily tight surfaces, the A6 design typifies preciseness and athletic grace. It was delicately prepared as part of refreshing the model, with alterations to the single-frame grille, headlamps, air intakes, bumpers, side sills, rear lamps, and exhaust pipes. Audi offers optional headlights using LED or Matrix LED technologies, along with dynamic turn indicators.
Due to its clever composite build strategies, the body is very sturdy and safe. Many elements made from aluminium and hot-shaped steel create the foundation for a systemic light construction strategy. The all-new A6 1.8 TFSI has a standing weight (with no driver) of only 1,535 kg (3,384.1 lbs). Ride comfort is outstanding; cabin noise is very low.
