Audi Malaysia today announced the availability of new variants of the Audi A6 business sedan and the Audi A7 Sportback five-door coupé, both with a high performance 2.0 litre four-cylinder, inline petrol engine coupled with Audi’s quattro permanent all-wheel drive.
The executive Audi A6 2.0 TFSI quattro slots in between the entry-point Audi A6 1.8 TFSI and the range-topping Audi A6 3.0 TFSI quattro. It looks almost identical with its larger-engined variant with the only exception beings its 18-inch 10-spoke V-design alloy wheels.
The Audi A7 2.0 TFSI quattro on the other hand, is also identical to the Audi A7 3-litre variant, characterised by its long bonnet, muscular waistline and sloping roofline.
Under the hood, both vehicles are propelled by a 2 litre, 4-cylinder, in-line petrol engine with direct fuel injection and exhaust gas turbocharging that develops a total output of 252 hp and a maximum torque of 370 Nm between the range of 1,600 and 4,500 rpm. This engine is then mated with a 7-speed S tronic transmission and Audi’s quattro permanent all-wheel drive to allow the sedan to accomplish the century sprint in just 6.5 seconds, while the five-door coupe dashes from 0-100 km/h in 6.7 seconds.

Also bristling with technology, this Audi A7 Sporback also features all of the same infotainment and connectivity features as the A6 sedan, but with the added function of the Audi Smartphone Interface, which allows the access of a connected iOS or Android smartphone’s features through the vehicle’s MMI interface.
