Behind a endless support systems lies a high-tech procedure from Audi: a executive motorist assistance controller (zFAS). It calculates invariably a minute indication of a sourroundings from a alloy of sensor data. Depending on equipment, a sensor set includes adult to 5 radar sensors, 5 cameras, twelve ultrasonic sensors as good as a laser scanner – another vital innovation.

Mild-hybrid record – all engines electrified
All engines in a new A6 come with Audi’s new mild-hybrid technology. Here a belt alternator starter (BAS) works together with a lithium-ion battery. The Audi A6 can seashore between 55 and 160 km/h (34.2 and 99.4 mph).

The start-stop duty kicks in adult to 22 km/h (13.7 mph). The engine is restarted from delay predictively as shortly as a automobile in front of a Audi A6 starts moving. During deceleration, a BAS recovers adult to 12 kW of energy. In real-world driving, a MHEV record reduces fuel expenditure by adult to 0.7 liters per 100 kilometers.

Body and measure – some-more legroom in a business class
The physique of a new Audi A6 also adds to a loose atmosphere onboard. One cause is a modernized aerodynamics: With a smallest drag fellow of 0.24 (with an engine to be expelled subsequently) and interjection to worldly aeroacoustics, a Sedan stays agreeably quiet, even during high speed.

A second cause is a high physique acerbity – it forms a basement for a tip peculiarity feel and a sporty handling.

Components such as a front cessation strut pattern are done of aluminum, as are a doors, hood/trunk lids and fenders.

The interior of a new Audi A6 is even incomparable than on a effusive model. With courtesy to legroom in a rear, it beats a effusive indication and a core competitors. The headroom and shoulder room in a front and back are also higher to a effusive model. The luggage cell offers some-more loading breadth – dual golf bags can be accommodated horizontally.

The new Audi A6 is noticeably sportier than a effusive indication – interjection generally to innovative solutions for a suspension. The already sporty ratio of a customary on-going steering becomes even some-more approach as a steering angle increases; a new damping judgment also conveys intensive, finally differentiated feedback from a road. The new Audi A6 is maneuverable in town, flexible on nation roads, and staid and gentle on a highway.

The energetic all-wheel steering is a pivotal member in this lively and maneuverability. It combines direct, sporty steering response with unshakable stability, solution this classical dispute of aims. Depending on a speed, a steering ratio varies between 9.5:1 and 16.5:1. This is interjection to a aria call gearing during a front. At a back axle, a shaft expostulate turns a wheels as most as 5 degrees. At low speed, a wheels expostulate in a conflicting instruction to a front wheels, so enhancing a lively of a A6 and shortening a branch round by adult to 1.1 meters (3.6 ft) to 11.1 meters (36.4 ft). All of that creates maneuvering easy notwithstanding a roughly 5 scale (16.4 ft) extraneous length of a vast Sedan. At high speed a wheels spin in a same direction, so optimizing fortitude when roving in a true line or changing lanes. Thus a A6 not usually offers a motorist well-spoken straight-line fortitude during high speed. Passengers also suffer some-more comfort given a steering movements seem most softer on a back seats.

The redesigned circle cessation is also done out of lightweight aluminum in many areas.

The 3.0 TDI with 210 kW (286 hp) produces identical opening (combined fuel expenditure in l/100 km: 5.8 – 5.5 (40.6 – 42.8 mpg)*; total CO2 emissions in g/km: 150 – 142 (241.4 – 228.5 g/mi)*), it delivers 620 Nm (457.3 lb-ft) of torque to a crankshaft. While a 3.0 TDI is interconnected with an eight-speed tiptronic, a 3.0 TFSI is joined as customary with a seven-speed S tronic. The dual engines are versed as customary with a quattro all-wheel drive, whose pattern varies depending on a specific setup. In and with a tiptronic it comes with a self-locking core differential; in tandem with a S tronic a setup facilities even some-more fit ultra technology, that always activates a rear-wheel expostulate now whenever needed. All gearshifts are automatic.

In and with a tiptronic delivery a discretionary competition differential lends a A6 even some-more energetic doing by actively distributing a energy between a back wheels. Like a energetic all-wheel steering, a tranquil damping and a adaptive atmosphere suspension, it is integrated into a control duty of a electronic framework platform. These systems are closely networked for innovative precision. The motorist can name several pushing profiles around a Audi expostulate name complement – a far-reaching widespread from comfort by sportiness is even some-more conspicuous than in a effusive model.

The extraneous pattern – technical and elegant
Like a A8 and A7 Sportback models, a A6 is a fluent envoy of a new Audi pattern language. With frozen surfaces, pointy edges and distinguished lines, a business sedan certainly conveys a character: sporty elegance, high tech and sophistication.

The extraneous stands out with a offset proportions – prolonged hood, prolonged wheelbase and brief overhangs. The A6 is 4,939 millimeters (16.2 ft) long, i.e. 7 millimeters (0.3 in) longer than a predecessor.

The frozen roof line, that tapers into prosaic C-pillars, characterizes a silhouette. The brief case lid ends in a winding separating corner for optimized aerodynamics. A distinguished chrome frame accentuates a three-dimensional sculpture of a back and connects a back lights.

The paint operation for a new A6 offers a choice of 14 colors, 7 of that are new. In further to a simple version, business have a choice of a dual competition and pattern extraneous trim lines as good as a S line extraneous package. They differ in many details, for instance with a Singleframe or a side atmosphere inlets. All lines and all colors use a play of light and shade on a outdoor skin, so accentuating a sculptured impression.

The lighting pattern – record brought to life
The lighting pattern emphasizes a technical clarity of a A6. Audi reserve a headlights in 3 opposite versions. With a top-of-the-line version, a HD Matrix LED headlights, 5 plane lines form a daytime using light signature; they stress a breadth of a front. Above them are a dipped lamp modules that demeanour like pupils. Optionally, a lighting signature of a tail lights is done adult of a singular plane line and 9 straight segments for any unit; a stop light fills a areas in between. The energetic indicator is enclosed with a top-of-the-line equipment. When unlocking and locking a doors, a pulsing entrance and withdrawal home duty brings to life a multiple of pattern and record that is a hallmark of Audi.

Audi offers dual opposite lighting packages for a interior: a ambient lighting package and a contour ambient lighting package. Both subtly spur a space, a volume and a materials. The ambient lighting creates a dashboard and core console seem to float. The contour lighting reproduces a transparent lines of a interior pattern and can be set to 30 different colors.

The interior – unconventional design
The interior of a new A6 facilities a black-panel pattern – a cold demeanour that expresses a technical cunning and digital clarity of a business sedan. This creates a loose loll atmosphere in a pattern denunciation that comes opposite as reduced and matter-of-fact. The neat instrument row and a calm, continual plane physique line emanate an ethereal clarity of spaciousness.

The core console in a new Audi A6 is destined during a driver; a tip MMI reason response arrangement is also slanted somewhat to a left. With a black-panel look, it roughly disappears into an aluminum shave when switched off. The arrangement is activated when opening a door; a graphical user interface appears reduced, relating a interior design.

Colors and materials – a operation of apparatus for all tastes
The far-reaching operation of colors and materials accessible for a new A6 rug out a interior pattern with really opposite characteristics, from superb by sporty, from technical by futuristic. Five versions are available: basic, sport, design, pattern preference and S line sport package (with 19-inch wheels and competition suspension). Each various is compared with opposite tone concepts. The choice and use of materials – from a open-pore timber trim by a leather upholstery on a instrument row – demonstrate to a uncompromisingly high peculiarity of a new Sedan. Audi offers a S line extraneous package as an choice for all apparatus lines.

The new Audi A6 is due to hurl off a public line during a Neckarsulm site and will launch on a German marketplace in Jun 2018.
