The all-new Audi A6 Saloon utilises many of the advanced technological and design innovations of the A8 flagship into a more compact, executive vehicle, and we’re pleased to announce that this new vehicle will be available in the UK from this Summer.
The A6 will feature an all-digital touch response media system, offering a new smart way to view vehicle functions and ‘favourites’ buttons. In a similar way to organising the screen of your smartphone the A6 display can be fully personalised and set to an individual driver profile, of which up to seven can be stored. The 8.8 inch screen can be upgraded to 10.1 inches with the addition of the optional MMI navigation plus upgrade. For that extra special driving experience Audi Virtual Cockpit can be specified to include a 12.3 inch in-binnacle LCD screen which puts everything you need right in front of your eyes.
The A6 Saloon at launch will be available with either a 3.0 V6 turbocharged petrol engine, offering a 0-62mph time of 5.1 seconds thanks to its 340PS and 500Nm torque. The 3.0 TDI offers a similarly impressive performance with 286PS and a 620Nm torque peak. All A6 vehicles will be equipped with an automatic gearbox and quattro all-wheel drive as standard. All engines will feature mild-hybrid technology meaning that a belt alternator starter (BAS) works with a lithium-ion battery, enabling the new A6 to coast at speeds of 34-99mph and allows the start-stop function to kick in earlier, at speeds of below 13mph. During deceleration the BAS recovers energy and ultimately the technology reduces fuel consumption by up to 0.7 litres per 62 miles.
On the outside, Audi have followed the design of their flagship A8 and included ‘taut surfaces, sharp edges and striking lines’ which ultimately give this vehicle a beautiful and instantly recognisable silhouette.
A sleek interior is achieved through the black panel design which creates a sense of minimalistic spaciousness. Two interior lighting packages are also available to personalise your vehicle; the ambient lighting package and the contour ambient lighting package. Both bring a new dimension to the interior space and animate the materials within the cabin.
The new A6 Saloon will be available to order this summer so please speak to your local Vindis centre soon in order to keep up to date on the very latest with this vehicle. We look forward to helping you configure your new Audi A6 Saloon.
