Audi A6 Facelift

Audi has developed a facelift version of the A6. Efficient engines have been added to the drive-train lineup, with innovative technologies cutting fuel consumption by about 15% across the whole model range. The new A6 will be launched for the German customers before the end of the summer. Its design is emphasized by a range of bold new accents, perfectly articulating the strong personality of the A6. The spacious interior with its clean and elegant contour and perfect craftsmanship is characteristic of this luxury brand. The rear seats are extremely comfortable and the L-shaped headrests improve the rear view visibility of the driver. A package of elaborate features makes sure the noise level is cut by almost half, particularly within critical frequency ranges. As it is expected of an Audi, the interior designers have made sure all the colors and materials match. Soft armrest on the doors increases comfort, while the integrated headrest system reduces the danger of whiplash. The carmaker is offering an S-line sports package for the most dynamic of drivers. The package includes enhanced performance features like 18-inch wheels and sports suspension that lowers the height of the ride by 30 mm. one of the major strengths of the A6 lies in its broad selection of engines: six gas and four diesel use direct fuel injection and cutting-edge FSI, TFSI and TDI technologies in a choice of four, six or eight cylinders. The new model can be equipped with factory-fitted adaptive air suspension so that the driver can vary his response and the characteristics of the adaptive shock absorbers into three styles. The German carmaker has integrated several new high-tech assistance systems. The upgraded Audi A6 will be available in dealerships in Germany starting mid-October and the price was established at EUR34.200 for the 2.0-liter TFSI sedan. The other prices have remained the same, despite all the extensive innovations.
