Audi A6 Facelif Brings Improved Design AndNew Entry-Level Petrol Engine
|   Monday, September 22, 2014
Audi A6 restyled the current generation model and all body variants of this model. The facelift brings new engines compliant with Euro 6 standards, 22 percent more fuel efficient.

Without too much fuss and without notice for a release so important, Audi unveiled the Audi A6 facelift. Rival to BMW's 5 Series and Mercedes' E-Class, it receives a well-deserved review aimed to revitalize sales.

Aesthetic changes are modest and include a retouched front grille, newfront and rear optical blocks, equipped with LED lights, spoilers with a different design, side skirts and redesigned vents.
As was normal, the front side borrows technology from its new brothers Audi A8 and TT, LED or Matrix LED headlights.

The interior comes with new colors for upholstery and ventilated front seats with massage function. Also, customers will find a sound system operated via the MMI multimedia interface and an automatic dual-zone climate control as standard. Also, in terms of technology it should be noted that the new A6 offers a new MMIgeneration, ennobled by Nvidia graphics card, the first result of the collaboration between the two companies. Also present is 4G and internet connection which facilitate access to online applications.

The list of safety equipment has improved too. There is adaptive cruise control,lane monitoring, a system to anticipate accidents offered in the standard pack, and a greatly improved night sight assistant. The head-up display with new information functions is also included.

Significant changes can be seenin the range of engines too, where we find three TFSI engines renewedwith power ranging from 190 hp to 333 hp. All offer reduced fuel consumption by up to 22 percent, and comply with Euro 6 standards.

The list of diesel units is more generous and includes five units with power ranging from 150 hp to 346 hp.
Some of these engines have received the label Ultra, which qualifies them for a reduced consumption and low emissions. One of them is the 1.8-liter TFSI, joined by an S-tronic gearbox, ready to deliver 190 hp and a consumption of 5.7 liters / 100 km. Emissions are also reduced to only 133 g / km.
On the other hand, the most economical diesel 2.0 TDI Ultraguzzles only 4.2 liters per 100 km and emits 109 g / km.

To celebrate 25 years since the introduction of TDI technology, Audi also offers Competition versions for A6 and A6 Avant. These come with a little more power squeezed from the twin-turboV6 3.0-liter. Specifically, they have 346 horsepower, administered with an eight speed automatic transmission.

The list of changes will be applied to the sport copies in the range too: Audi S6 and S6 Avant will get the same twin-turbo V8 4.0-liter with 450 horsepower. It guarantees a sprint from 0 to 100 km / h in 4.4 seconds for the sedan, and 4.6 seconds for the hatch. Average fuel efficiency is also 9.2 liters per 100 km for the sedan and 9.4 liters per 100 km for the hatch. Both variants benefit from thefunction to disable four of the eight cylinders when system usage is not heavy, especiallyin the city.

Top of the range remains the Audi RS6 Avant, which uses the same twin-turbo V84.0-liter, owing 560 horsepower and a sprint from 0 to 100 km / h in 3.9 seconds. Even so, it only needs 9.6 liters / 100 km.
