The Audi A6 is the successful model in the full-size class. According to the latest modifications in April 2016, a more sportily styled exterior, refinements in the interior and new infotainment features have combined to lend the full-size category sedan even higher quality and greater comfort.

Design and body
Sharp lines and emphasized horizontals – the design of the A6 epitomizes precision and sporty elegance. As an option, Audi can deliver the headlights as LEDs or with the innovative Matrix LED technology. The latter integrates 19 small, individually controllable LEDs in each headlight. With the aid of a camera they are able to illuminate the roadway extremely effectively at all times, without dazzling the drivers of other vehicles. The dynamic turn signals complement the high-tech headlights, and illuminate sequentially in the direction in which the driver wants to turn.

Interior
Each detail of the spacious interior is a testament to the brand’s uncompromisingly high standards of quality. Elegant colors and carefully selected materials emphasize the cultivated atmosphere. Options available for the front seat include ventilation and massage features.

Drive system
Two TFSI and seven TDI engines ranging in output from 140 kW (190 hp) to 240 kW (326 hp) comprise the engine lineup of the Audi A6. The 2.0 TDI ultra S tronic with 110 kW (150 hp) and 140 kW (190 hp) are the most efficient variants, with combined fuel consumption figures of 4.5 – 4.2 liters per 100 kilometers (52.3 – 56.0 US mpg) and emissions of 119 – 109 grams CO2 per kilometer (191.5 – 175.4 g/mi). The limited edition 3.0 TDI competition model is powered by the bi-turbo V6 diesel which delivers 240 kW (326 hp) – and briefly 255 kW (346 hp) in the additional boost mode.

Engine lineup

  • 1.8 TFSI ultra S tronic with 140 kW (190 hp)
  • 2.0 TFSI quattro S tronic with 185 kW (252 hp)
  • 2.0 TDI ultra and 2.0 TDI ultra S tronic with 110 kW (150 hp)
  • 2.0 TDI ultra and 2.0 TDI ultra S tronic with 140 kW (190 hp)
  • 2.0 TDI quattro S tronic with 140 kW (190 hp)
  • 3.0 TDI S tronic and 3.0 TDI quattro S tronic with 160 kW (218 hp)
  • 3.0 TDI quattro S tronic with 200 kW (272 hp)
  • 3.0 TDI quattro tiptronic with 235 kW (320 hp)
  • 3.0 TDI competition quattro tiptronic with 240 kW (326 hp)

Combined fuel consumption in l/100 km: 7.6 – 4.2 (30.9 – 56.0 US mpg)
Combined CO2 emissions in g/km: 177 – 109 (284.9 – 175.4 g/mi)
(Figures vary depending on engine/transmission/wheels/tires)

Audi provides for each engine and drive variant the right solution as to power transmission: The six-speed manual transmission and the seven-speed S tronic for front-wheel drive. The lineup is completed with a seven-speed S tronic for quattro drive and the eight-gear tiptronic – for the two most powerful diesel engines. The quattro permanent all-wheel drive is optionally available for the 2.0 TFSI, the 2.0 TDI with 140 kW (190 hp) and for the 3-liter TDI with 160 kW (218 hp) or 240 kW (326 hp). It is standard with all engines producing at least 200 kW (272 hp), and can be supplemented here with the sport differential at the rear axle if desired.

Chassis
The chassis also combines supreme comfort with sporty handling. The sophisticated wheel suspensions – five-link front suspension and trapezoidal-link at the rear – are constructed of aluminum, and the power steering has an electromechanical drive system. All A6 versions with front-wheel drive have Electronic Stabilization Control (ESC) with an electronic limited-slip differential, and the Audi drive select driving dynamics system is standard throughout. Audi also offers dynamic steering and the adaptive air suspension with variable damping as options.

Equipment
The Audi A6 of the current model year also offers some innovations in infotainment: The Audi smartphone interface brings the customized environments of Apple Car Play and Android car onto the MMI monitor. New in the A6 is the inductive charging function of the Audi phone box for charging suitable cell phones according to the Qi standard. The Audi connect module transfers data via LTE and brings tailored online services aboard, including navigation map updates and online media streaming. Entertainment for the rear seat passengers is provided through two tablets networked with the car, which also work outside the vehicle. The S models also come with the new features.

Adaptive cruise control with Stop&Go reduces the driver’s everyday workload. Audi side assist, which checks behind the car when changing lanes, works closely together with Audi active lane assist, which prevents unintended lane changes. The night vision assistant has been further improved, and the Audi pre sense basic safety system is standard.

Audi A6 3.0 TDI competition
The 3.0 TDI bi-turbo in the A6 3.0 TDI competition edition model makes up the diesel top model and outputs 240 kW (326 hp) – with an additional boost briefly providing 255 kW (346 hp). The S line sport package is standard equipment, and the sports suspension lowers the body by

20 millimeters (0.8 in). Located behind the 20-inch, two-tone wheels are brakes with red calipers. The interior is black, and the list of standard equipment is very generous.

Audi A6 Avant
In spring 2016, the Audi A6 Avant with its flowing lines received the same improvements as the A6 sedan: On the exterior, modifications to the front of the car underscore its horizontal aspect: In the Audi A6 Avant, powerful contours frame the air inlets in the front spoiler, while struts in high-gloss black horizontally subdivide the side ventilation screens. The side sills and the rear bumper also have a more angular shape. A new diffusor terminates the rear downwards.

The optional S line exterior package for the A6 models includes a new radiator grille with a matt black body. The slats are glossy chrome. Distinctive chrome struts accentuate the side air inlets; adaptive cruise control also adds chrome rings.

The lightweight body, with its intelligent combination of materials, and the sporty and elegant interior are major highlights. The luggage compartment offers 565 to 1,680 liters (20.0 to 59.3 cu ft) of capacity and a number of practical features. Cargo loading is even easier with the optional sensor-controlled automatic power tailgate combined with a power luggage compartment cover.

Drive system
Two gasoline and seven TDI engines combine power with high efficiency, low emissions and smooth running. The two 2.0 TDI ultra versions have a combined fuel consumption of 4.7 – 4.4 liters of fuel per 100 kilometers (50.0 – 53.5 US mpg) with emissions at 124 – 114 grams CO2 pro kilometer (199.6 – 183.5 g/mi). Like the sedan, the A6 Avant is also available as the limited edition 3.0 TDI competition with a bi-turbo TDI that delivers up to 255 kW (346 hp) in overboost mode.

Depending on the engine, the A6 Avant drives off the assembly line with a six-speed manual, the seven-speed S tronic or the eight-speed tiptronic. Besides front-wheel drive, quattro permanent all-wheel drive is available for all engines except the 1.8 TFSI; for the 218 hp 3.0 TDI quattro and higher there is also the sport differential.

Equipment
High-end options include the head-up display, front seats with ventilation and massage function, and ambient lighting. The A6 Avant can be equipped with many different assistance and safety systems.

Audi connect can also be ordered together with an extensive lineup of infotainment modules and services.

Audi A6 allroad quattro
The Audi A6 allroad quattro, which was also upgraded in 2014, keeps on going where the asphalt ends. Its body is positioned six centimeters (2.4 in) higher than in the A6 Avant. Stainless steel covers protect the underbody at the front and rear. The design is robust, with some add-on parts painted in a contrasting color.

In the A6 allroad quattro Audi has banked on a distinctive visual differentiation to intensify the off-road character. The comprehensive Advanced package is optionally available for all engine versions. For the exterior it contains the optional new and exclusive Soho brown color, with structure gray for the add-on parts. 20-inch wheels as well as quattro permanent all-wheel drive sport differential complete the powerful appearance. For the interior, the package includes sport seats in the top-leather grade Valcona in Santos brown with contrast stitching.

The adaptive air suspension is also standard: at the touch of a button it raises the vehicle body by 35 millimeters (1.4 in). At low speeds, the lift mode adds ten millimeters (0.4 in) to the ride height.
