With the new A6, Audi presents the eighth generation of its successful luxury sedan. The high-tech yet elegant model introduces numerous innovations into the segment and is more versatile than ever before. Together with the A8 and A7 Sportback models, the A6 is a distinguished ambassador for the new Audi design language. With taut surfaces, clear edges and striking lines, it conveys sporty elegance, cutting-edge technology and premium quality. Its interior focuses consistently on its fully digital operating system and is a trendsetter in the segment.
The MMI touch response operating system with haptic and acoustic feedback provides quick, intuitive operation. Its extensive connectivity and assistance solutions offer even greater safety and convenience. Highlights among the driver assistance systems include the parking pilot and garage pilot, which will expand the range of options offered during the course of the year, as well as the adaptive driving assistant.
It supports longitudinal and lateral control and helps keep the car in its lane even in narrow lanes and roadwork sections. On the road, the Audi A6 is as agile as a sports car and as nimble as a compact model. The new dynamic all-wheel-drive steering system plays a major role in that.
It combines direct, sporty steering response with superior driving stability while reducing the turning circle of the sedan by up to 1.1 meters (3.6 ft). The new damping concept provides intensive yet finely differentiated feedback from the road.
For the launch in Europe, Audi offers the new A6 with two powerful and smoothly running engines – a 3.0 TFSI with 340 hp and a 3.0 TDI with 286 hp. All engines are equipped with a mild hybrid system as standard for addded comfort and efficiency. The new Audi A6 will be manufactured at the Neckarsulm plant and will be launched in the German market with extensive equipment in June 2018.
