The new Audi A6 will be offered with two engine options: an efficient 1.8 TFSI engine or a sporty 3.0 TFSI engine with their iconic Quattro.
“The Audi A6 is one of our most successful vehicles and the lynchpin of our product range, making it a symbol of Audi’s leadership in the premium segment.

One of the significant updates on the A6 would definitely be the ground-breaking Matrix LED technology combined with dynamic indicators. This technology makes use of an array of 19 light-emitting diodes per headlight paired with four reflectors to produce a high-beam light that illuminates the road far ahead whilst intelligently avoiding dazzling other road users.

Even with such performance, it still maintains class-leading fuel efficiency with a combined cycle of 5.7liters/100km and a CO2 emissions rating of 133g/km.

Fuel consumption is rated at 7.4liters/100km and a CO2 emission of just 172g/km.
